This outstanding 5 bedroom 5.1 bath home blends the timeless beauty of a classic Bowman Tudor with brilliantly designed modern amenities and state-of-the-art mechanical upgrades. Original features that are the hallmarks of renowned architect C. Lewis Bowman include abundant leaded glass windows that pour natural light throughout the interior, random width hand pegged and herringbone floors, and graciously proportioned entertaining rooms. Major renovations completed by the current homeowner make this a truly 21st Century home with a super-functional top of the line eat-in kitchen, inviting casual space for everyday living and entertaining, and exquisitely updated bathrooms.
Located on a large level lot in a prime sought-after neighborhood, the property is accessed from both front and rear driveways. There is plenty of outdoor play space and ample guest parking.
A wide horseshoe-shaped driveway sweeps up to the original paneled front door, which has a leaded glass insert and is framed by a stone surround. Guests are welcomed into a spacious light-filled foyer with archways to the dining room on the right and living room to the left. Beautifully restored original hardwood floors flow throughout the foyer and formal rooms.
The living room features a grand fireplace with marble surround and hearth, built-in cabinetry and shelves for storage and display. It segues into a breathtaking all-season sunroom with three walls of leaded glass windows and French doors to both the front path and a secluded rear patio. To the right of the foyer, the paneled dining room features original herringbone floors and views over the front and side of the property. It is served by the adjacent butler’s pantry, which has a SubZero wine cooler and sink, handsome cherry Shaker-style cabinetry, granite counters, and glass tile backsplash that co-ordinate with the kitchen.
The chef’s kitchen was designed to showcase fabulous original floor to ceiling leaded glass windows that were found in the attic, and to incorporate a built-in dining table and an exceptionally functional work flow. Top of the line appliances include the paneled SubZero refrigerator/freezer, Miele cooktop and double convection wall ovens, and Bosch dishwasher. New 8” wide pegged hardwood floors.
Sophisticated and private, the master suite on the second floor has a stunning spa bathroom with radiant heated marble floor, frameless glass shower, and a sculptural Victoria & Albert free-standing soaking tub made from a unique scratch-resistant and heat-retaining limestone resin. Wow!
Four additional bedrooms are all bright and spacious with generous closets. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack & Jill bath; the guest or “princess” suite has an ensuite bath, and there is a hall bath—all superbly renovated with highest quality materials and fixtures.
The expansive finished lower level further exemplifies the thoughtful design process that went into this home’s extensive renovations. Accessed from the kitchen and the garage, the lower level includes a spacious family room for TV, movie nights, and play-dates; plenty of additional play/hobby space; fantastic custom storage for games, toys, and sports gear; an exercise room or office; large laundry with custom cabinetry; and a full bathroom. In other words – everything you could ever want and need!
