Property Description

This stately 1927 Georgian Revival is located on a highly desirable street in the sought-after Wesley Heights neighborhood. The beautiful house is set back from the street behind a row of manicured hedges, providing wonderful privacy. The impressive home sits on over half an acre lot, with beautifully designed gardens and a pool. The charming interior features generously proportioned entertaining rooms, as well comfortable family living spaces, professionally designed by William Hodgins. The elegant rooms are light-filled, with an abundance of natural sunlight coming from large windows throughout. There is also the added convenience of an elevator to three floors. The magnificent reception foyer features handsome moldings and cornices, as well as intricately detailed wood floors. The entry foyer seamlessly transitions to the sophisticated living room, which offers a lovely central fireplace with an eighteenth-century French limestone mantle, attractive arched transom windows, and French doors to the terrace. The neighboring dining room, which can also be accessed from the reception foyer, is exceptionally scaled and enhanced with thick crown moldings. The dining room provides direct access to the enchanting sunroom, which provides a garden ambiance and is fully windowed on three sides, affording stunning views of the rear garden and lovely water feature. The gourmet kitchen offers a large center island with a breakfast bar, abundant cabinetry storage, and a Viking six-burner range. There is also an elegant library on this floor, which has an additional fireplace and a convenient powder room. Completing the main level is a side entrance that provides access to a bedroom suite, nannys bedroom, the one-car garage, and the lower level. The second level has three bedrooms and three full bathrooms, including the gracious primary suite. The primary bedroom is well-appointed with a private balcony, en-suite bathroom, and a generous walk-in closet. There is also an adjoining sitting room, complemented with a fireplace and built-in bookshelves. The two additional bedrooms on this floor are both spacious and have en-suite bathrooms. The third floor provides a large open flexible-use space with an impressive roof deck. The room is currently being used as a bedroom, providing a large walk-in dressing room and an updated full bathroom. The lower level has a family room with built-ins, a secondary kitchenette with a breakfast bar, multiple large storage rooms, a sizable laundry room with a utility sink and storage, and a full bathroom with a frameless glass shower. This extraordinary residence is exceptional for entertaining with multiple terraced seating areas, a pool, water fountain feature, rear yard, mature trees, and lush professional landscaping. The house is within walking distance to neighborhood favorite restaurants, shops, and parks.
