A masterfully crafted home by celebrated architect, Donald Lococo, you’ll be transported upon arrival as captivating old-world aesthetics include Flemish-bond patterned brick, warm cream-colored trimmings, stately stone-paver drive, rustic landscaping, and a dramatic roofline complete with idyllic turret-entry. Inside, over 8,300 square feet are a serene canvas for your belongings where wide-planked floors, broad Venetian plaster walls, and crisp lines effortlessly balance refined millwork, hand-selected wallpapers, delicate finishings, and lavish wood and gas-burning fireplaces.

Entertain from under coffered ceilings, refresh in bathrooms punctuated by high-end hardware, and be inspired by your elegant kitchen where professional-grade appliances, an expansive pantry, and breathtaking provincial ambiance provide a haven for conversation with friends. French doors lead to an oversized slate patio (with a remote-controlled retractable portico) and a back lawn perfect for both playdates and grand parties. Here, host evening al fresco meals, and consider plans for an outdoor escape with a pool or the garden of your dreams. Thoughtfully constructed for everyday life, a charming mudroom and endless built-ins display and tuck-away wears, while six European-styled bedrooms host loved ones. In the primary, unwind within a sunlit sitting space, and let your luxuriously minimalist bathroom invite you to relax within a graceful place for bubbles. While on tour, visit the heated and EV-ready three-car garage perfect for showcasing collectible vehicles and tinkering with projects year-round.
