This 3-bedroom 2-bath home is that rarest of finds: a work of art. Privately nestled in the popular enclave of Mt. Washington, it is ready for Architectural Digest. The spacious open living/dining/kitchen area is simply stunning, with dramatically pitched ceiling and subtly designed skylights capturing natural light. Surrounded on 3 sides by floor-to-ceiling walls of glass, every detail has been addressed with exquisite taste. A remote controlled two-sided fireplace lends romantic ambience to both the living room and master bedroom, while beautiful Massachusetts walnut floors offset Jerusalem sandstone in the foyer and kitchen, where mini glass tiles border the gorgeous polished granite counters. The stainless appliances are top of the line Miele and Sub Zero, with a 6-burner gas stove and 4-drawer, under-counter refrigerator/freezer. Custom-designed Scavolini stainless cabinetry completes this chef’s dream kitchen.
Other exceptional features in the loft-like space include artfully designed Insteon lighting, hand-made dining-area cabinets, and windowed French doors opening onto the multi-level wraparound deck which leads to a coveted screened porch. The bathrooms continue the upscale artistry with highest quality Duravit and Toto fixtures and hardware. A huge walk-in shower anchors the master bath, with the second full bath featuring an inviting soaking tub. Throughout the house, several remarkably designed sliding doors with replicated antique wavy glass provide added privacy, while making an artistic statement of their own. The expansive, beautifully finished 2,000+ square foot basement offers multiple additional possibilities. All mechanical systems are top grade; Amtrol radiant heat, Munchkin high efficiency gas boiler, central air conditioning by Bryant, A-1 security system, and an auxiliary generator tucked behind the over-sized 2-car garage. Set back from the street by a flat 300′ driveway weaving through evergreen trees that surround the house, year-round privacy is ensured. There is even a mountain stream as part of the 4-acre property, creating the perfect country retreat. No expense was spared in this extraordinary renovation, with literally too many details to mention, all combining to make it an absolute “must see.”
