A spacious dining room is ideal for family gatherings or entertaining as it adjoins the original butler~s pantry. Custom cabinetry, sub-zero refrigerator, double ovens, tile floor and breakfast bar are offered in the kitchen, which was designed especially so the gourmet cook may enjoy the company of family or friends in the adjoining family and sun rooms while taking in the view of the beautiful rear gardens. On a cool evening the gas fireplace provides a warm ambiance in the family room which is lined with French doors opening to the expansive raised terrace with inlayed slate. An impressive side entry provides easy access to a classic office boasting rich wood paneling and Mercer tile floor. Enjoy the luxurious second floor owner~s quarter~s with fireplace and breathtaking new en-suite boasting a freestanding soaking tub, walk-in shower, and custom built-ins, accented by gleaming marble.
