Built 1926
This lovely English manor home, built in 1926 by renowned architect James Gamble Rogers, is set on 2 acres of land overlooking a quiet ravine and just 2 blocks to the Lake. A perfect balance of old and new features, this home has been completely renovated and updated throughout while maintaining the classic elegance and timeless sophistication of a vintage home. Beautiful architectural details throughout include exquisite stained glass windows, pristine millwork and intricate stone features. The focal point of the spacious living room is the grand stone fireplace and beautiful leaded glass windows and doors. Cozy family room area offers a place to curl up with a book or watch some t.v. No details were spared in the outstanding newer custom kitchen. Upstairs you will find 5 bedrooms including the serene primary suite with vaulted, beamed ceiling, stone fireplace and luxurious bathroom w/whirlpool and separate shower. Also located on the 2nd floor is a library w/custom built-ins overlooking the yard and ravine, and the convenience of a large 2nd floor laundry room. The lower level features gorgeous stone floors and a cozy area with fireplace and wine cellar, as well as rec room area and powder room. The large backyard retreat offers plenty of space for al fresco dining, gardening and relaxing. Truly a special home.
