Gorgeous estate in town, yet feels as though it's in the country, this magnificently updated home is centered on 3.6 acres and backs up to Purgatory Park green space. The five fireplaces make for a very cozy feel even as there is 5600 square feet of comfortable living space in the main house and a 2600 square feet in the guest house. Details such as crown molding throughout, wainscoting, and the other high end finishes make for a very luxurious feel. A wall of windows looking out onto the colossal patio and outdoor entertaining area adorns the family room. Look above to see the coffered ceilings (you'll find coffered ceilings in the two-storied entry and den, off of the kitchen, as well). A beautiful traditional mantel surrounds the family room fireplace (number 1) as well as a niche perfect for displaying your favorite piece of art. The chef's kitchen is enormous and gives the homeowner the ability to hire their favorite catering company for large parties. It features a side by side Thermador refrigerator complete with an extra large ice maker, BlueStar commercial gas range with two ovens, 6 burners and an exchangeable griddle/grill and wok cooking as well as two dishwashers, two wine refrigerators, two islands with marble countertops, and large apron sink. The whole family (and some friends) can dine at the large kitchen table with built-in bench for more informal get togethers. The dining room is also quite ample for more formal occasions. Cozy up to another fireplace (number 2) in the den that's open to the kitchen and keep the chef of the house company. The primary suite is on the first level as is another one of the four, large, en-suite bedrooms. The ample primary suite has it's own fireplace (number 3) with a walk-in closet. Windows to the front of the house and toward the back of the house through the glassed-in porch provide for a light, airy feel. Through french doors, you'll find the primary spa-like bathroom with a beautiful freestanding soaker tub, dual vanities and a gigantic shower with dual shower heads and bench extending the width of it. Through another set of french doors, you'll find the primary suite closet that wraps around to a built-in desk and one set of washers and dryers as well as a wall of shoe shelves and cabinets for storage. Yet another set of French doors off of the primary suite bathroom leads to the windowed-in, air-conditioned porch currently used as a workout room, but could be utilized as you see fit. The other three bedrooms are ensuite as well. One bedroom is on the first floor, while the other two are upstairs. They all have built-ins in the walk-in closets and the lower level bedroom has a built-in desk. Also upstairs there is a large library (think Old English) featuring a wall of book shelves and plenty of light from the wrap-around porch that surrounds it. The ceiling is vaulted and beamed providing for a tall, brick fireplace (number 4). Walk out onto the wrap around porch looking over the outdoor entertaining and pool area below, to the tennis courts beyond or further out to the treed green space to spot a deer or see the fireworks on the forth of July - you can see them from here! And finally, you'll find fireplace number 5 in the basement which currently is the speak easy/pub, but use this room for anything you imagine. It has access from the outside convenient to the pool area or up the stairs to the half bath by the kitchen. The guest house is also open to the large outdoor entertaining and pool area making it perfect for out of town guests or family in a multiple generational living situation. There is a large office with it's own door with parking in front so as not to disturb the rest of the guest house. The primary bedroom has it's own living room (with a door to the front of the house) and bathroom. There are two other bedrooms that share a bathroom, a large family room open to the kitchen as well as another huge game room.
