This spectacular Federal style home combines all the features of a 21st century vacation retreat with the charm and character of a 19th century residence. It has been completely updated, including the removal of lead paint, and features central air conditioning, a granite and stainless steel kitchen, and 5 bedrooms (3 en suite) and 4 1/2 baths in the main house... plus a 1-bedroom (queen bed) studio apartment with full bath (shower) in the pool house. Furnishings throughout the home are an eclectic combination of antique and traditional, complimented by an assortment of fine art and accessories… much like you might find in your own home.
The main floor includes a formal dining room which comfortably seats 10 and connects to the sitting room off the kitchen,which has a sleep sofa, gas fireplace and TV. The recently renovated kitchen includes a Sub Zero refrigerator with ice-maker and stainless appliances plus a warming oven and 36 bottle wine refrigerator, all surrounded by granite counters and cherry cabinets. A large pass-through connects the kitchen to the very special family/sunroom which serves as the center of activity. The room features a built-in TV with DVD player and surround sound, a gas fireplace and a large 10-person table for most meals. And last but certainly not least is the oversized master bedroom with king bed and built-in chest in the walk-in closet. The master bath has a double sink, 2-person jacuzzi tub, large glass-enclosed walk-in shower and bidet.
The second floor offers 4 bedrooms and three baths. Two of the bedrooms have queen beds and private baths, one of which includes a second jacuzzi, steam shower and bidet. The other two bedrooms each have twin beds and share a full bath off the hallway. A lower basement level has a large table for games, color tv, and seating. It serves as an excellent place for children to hang out, especially in the unlikely event that it might rain.
Exit the glass sliders or french doors leading to the wrap-around deck with barbeque grill fueled by natural gas (no tanks needed) and sunken hot tub for five. The oversized salt water pool with lap lane offers the perfect setting for swimming and sunbathing with plenty of seating (chairs, tables & lounges) when not in the pool. There are also pool floats, an outdoor shower, and hammock for two for your enjoyment. The little pool house has a screened porch with bistro table for two for those wishing to escape the sun. Steps to the second floor lead to a studio apartment, with queen bed, tv, extra seating, and kitchenette with coffee maker and microwave. Individuals wishing to leave the property, even if only for a little while, will discover shopping, golf, beaches, restaurants, boats to the Islands, and other activities just a short drive from your front door.
