Masterful minds met this spacious antique with the knowledge and keen ability to bring this Village landmark C1880 Colonial renovation and expansion to fruition. Each and every aspect of this elegant property is intimately constructed to please the eye, nurture its landscape and leave nothing to want, creating a home of great distinction in the heart of Essex Village. From the entry foyer with a staircase duplicating the original 1880 construction, custom paneling, millwork and fireplace surrounds, coffered ceilings and crown molding frame every room, reflecting a sophisticated sense of history and tradition, but accommodating any lifestyle. An open floor plan, both formal and informal, offers a perfect setting for every occasion, and the remarkable Chef's kitchen with marble island, Butler's pantry, coffee and wine bar and top-of-the-line appliances is a dream! There are five bedrooms, all with en suite baths, including a stunning Master suite with fireplace and spa bath, as well as an exquisite Carriage House guest apartment, currently used as an office, with private entrance. The elegant paneled elevator and mahogany wine cellar are among the many fine details of this residence. Beautiful landscaping, a pool complex with water features and a fabulous covered stone patio with Rumsford fireplace make outdoor living a multi season possibility. All this and more just a short walk to Essex Village with shops, restaurants and marinas. Simply without compare!
