The home is laid out as follows:
First Floor: You will enter this charming turn-of-the-century beauty through a bright foyer into a formal parlor, replete with a gilded federal eagle mirror, 1825 Philadelphia carved sofa, and a gorgeous Chesterfield. A few steps further, one arrives in the music room, occupied by a concert-quality Schimmel 7’ grand piano, decorative fireplace, and formal staircase. Through classic pocket doors is a fabulous dining room and a 15-light gilded neoclassical Parisian chandelier. Finally, a classic 6-pannel servants’ door leads to a fully-furnished wet bar, a half bathroom, chef-quality kitchen, and a lovely curated back yard and deck, complete with both a Weber Genesis grill and Masterbuilt electric smoker.
Second Floor: Up the grand staircase from the music room, you will arrive at a spacious master suite, containing a king-sized French campaign bed and pillow-top mattress. A lovely, plush chair and ottoman in the corner make for a perfect reading or meditating nook. A grand door leads into the private Master bathroom suite, with ample closet space, spa shower, Japanese toilet, heated floors, and a crystal chandelier. Further down the hallway is a lovely full bath with an original claw-foot tub and shower, as well as a cozy study with a full-sized day-bed, Georgian revival desk, printer, scanner, and flat screen TV containing Netflix, Amazon, CNN, HBOGO, and other web-streaming channels.
Third Floor: Continuing up the staircase leads to the third floor. A guest bedroom with a queen-sized bed with memory foam combine with a lovely antique ladies’ writing desk, a Chippendale dresser, and three large windows to provide a bright, tree-top retreat. The cozy library has a full-size murphy bed with a Casper mattress and oriental rug for a more intimate feel. Both the guest bedroom and library share a full bath with claw foot tub and shower, as well as a brightly appointed vanity.
Amenities: Luxury sheets, towels, comforters, and toiletries are provided throughout the home. Kitchen is stocked with the best-possible equipment (Kitchen aid stand mixer; Vita-Mix; Cuisinart 11 cup food processor, Instant hot water, five-burner Verona gas range, and three ovens) worthy of any caterer. The dining room has multiple choices for table linens and place-settings, and the wet bar has glassware that would be appreciated by even the most discerning mixologist. The kitchen is stocked with spices, oils, coffee, and other basics that will make your stay absolutely perfect.
