The Preserve is known for its upscale, peaceful atmosphere just a short, sidewalk-lined distance from town and this 1.84-acre cul de sac property might be the most idyllic in the whole neighborhood. A stately home built entirely of brick proudly stands atop a gentle hill. Around back, stone terraces soak up the serenity and paths wind through the sun-dappled yard, culminating with a lagoon-style pool by Anthony Sylvan. A full-service poolhouse with cathedral ceiling offers breezy shelter and keeps refreshments within easy reach. The main house is the epitome of elegance with arched windows, French doors, a sweeping staircase and special touches, like hand-painted walls. The dining room is especially pretty with a mural inspired by a famous Gracie wallpaper design. The custom kitchen features a Wolf range with luminous onyx tile backsplash and an adjoining breakfast room with built-in window seat. A gas fireplace and a wet bar flank the dramatically peaked family room. In addition to a library, there is a privately situated office next to a full bath, which offers the flexibility of au pair or guest usage. On the second floor, the exceptionally roomy main suite has a new walk-in by Closets By Design and a bath luxuriously appointed with radiant heat, a soaking tub and mosaic tilework and onyx countertops that seem to sparkle and glow. Five more bedrooms with custom storage share 2 generous bathrooms. The garage comes equipped with two electric vehicle charging outlets and the finished basement is ready for wine enthusiasts with a 2,000-bottle cellar. A whole-house generator keeps it all running in any weather!
