Tucked away on coveted Old Orchard Rd, this custom home is magnificent both inside and out. Entering the paved drive you’ll be immediately enamored of the stone construction, wooden trims, slate roof, and various patios, perfect for quiet reflection or a gathering of friends. Upon entering, you’ll find that the home gracefully balances comfortable living with impressive spaces to entertain. The LR has soaring cathedral ceilings, with a f/p at center stage. The connected dining area offers a more intimate setting to enjoy company. These spaces flow into a large ‘sunroom’, flooded with natural light, and accented by a curving, indoor, self-maintaining koi pond, complete with fish & greenery. Two doors lead out to a stone patio with outdoor f/p, mature plantings, & a large, private, fenced-in yard. If there's work to be done, utilize the large office w/ soaring ceilings, bookcases, fireplace, & private bath. The kitchen, nicely updated, opens to a comfortable family-room with built-in bookshelves and another half-bath. The main level also contains the master suite, with bedroom, bathroom, & connecting room that could be used as a walk-in closet, office, den, nursery, or 6th bdrm. There are two stairways in the home, leading to separate guest quarters, each comprised of two cozy rooms & a full bath. This is a unique property and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
