Description

A timeless home filled with modern conveniences and numerous RECENT updates!This is one of Old Towns few single-family homes with ATTACHED garage nestled on one of its oldest streets. A true rarity that is seen through two conventional lenses—the classic look and feel of Old Town from the exterior, yet young and new throughout the interior—this home awaits you as you pass through its gates . This gracious home built on land originally owned by John Hunter, is an excellent example of recent architecture accurately blending with its historic neighbors. The site was first used by John Hunter & Thomas Fleming as a ship building yard from 1763 through the 1780’s and later a carriage house. The site had no dwellings until 1889, when the land records note two dwellings. By 1987 only a small portion of one of these homes remained when construction on the present structure began. The owners have renovated it with attention to detail. Welcomed by the entry foyer, with custom leaded glass detailed front door, marble floor & dentil mouldings. You will love the open concept and meticulous attention to detail. The living room radiates from natural light that shines through a full bank of windows across the room. Custom marble mantle sits at its center, across from a built-in wet bar. The gourmet kitchen has been renovated w new appliances : Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer, wine cooler, oversized deep sink, smart double oven, ice machine, under cabinet lighting, quartz countertops and center island. The light-filled breakfast/family room has a 20ft wall of floor to ceiling windows which look out to gardens with plush plantings. Additional features include a butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen with ample cabinets for storage and counter space, powder room, formal dining room with built in window seat, a study/home office as well as a library with floor to ceiling book cases and a hand painted 1800’s map of the world on the ceiling. Whether it’s walking up the custom wainscot staircase or, taking the 3-floor elevator, the second floor exudes both personality and elegance. The primary bedroom offers the perfect space to unwind, as it has a gas fireplace with black and gold select marble surround & custom cabinetry and wood, floor to ceiling wall of windows, vaulted ceilings with built-in speakers and cove lighting. Add extra privacy with remote-controlled Hunter Douglas Silhouettes. The primary bathroom has marble and solid brass fixtures, complete with a jacuzzi tub and spa shower. The upper level also includes four additional bedrooms that have been extensively renovated, each a warm study in color and textures, two full baths, a laundry chute that connects to the laundry room on the lower level. A well appointed roof deck is accessible from 2 rooms and overlooks the private gardens. A second beautifully crafted staircase takes you to the lower level that is an entertainer’s dream. A custom mahogany wet bar with wine rack storage for 400 + bottles is the centerpiece of the room, along with a gas fireplace with double arched brick hearth, and welled windows for natural light. Tucked around the corner, as you walk through a welled entrance and onto hickory wood flooring, sits an exquisite office w/wall of custom cabinetry & closets. This multi-purpose room is designed for workout/craft room. Lower level features a large bedroom suite w/ abundance of closet space, a built-in day bed, and full bath, an area that could serve as guest bdrm. or au-pair suite.
