About the Home

This celebrated house located high on a hill at the end of a popular cul-de-sac was built in 1850 as a 3-room hunting lodge. Many renovations and modern touches later, the home has been transformed into a 5 bedroom beauty that incorporates the charm of the hunting lodge. Enter into an open stone floor foyer surrounded by windows to the original living room with huge fireplace. The back porch was walled in to create a 4-season piano nook. Possibly the most striking room in the home is the formal dining room with stone fireplace, built-ins, paneled walls and custom millwork on the ceiling. Go through an ultra deluxe butler’s pantry to the high-end kitchen with island that is open to the vaulted family room and eating area. A bonus room and ensuite guest room sit over the 3-car garage. While some may favor the first floor master suite with huge dressing room/closet, marble bath and sitting area, or the castle-like wine cellar, everyone will fall in love with the outdoor paradise. A glorious pool is the center of attention with its many entertaining decks, hot tub and 52ft waterslide swirling it's way down to the pool. The pool house mimics the architecture of the house and includes a living room, kitchen, full bath with its own entrance and outdoor grill area. 1850’s character shines in this one-of-a-kind offering.
