Quiet grandeur is the best way to describe this finely built and wonderfully appointed home. Set up for entertaining both indoors and out, it retains the comfort and feeling of truly being at home. Upon entering the towering foyer, the grand staircase is set in perfect union with the adjacent formal dining room both, with wonderful outdoor views. Moving into the heart of the home the large and intricately detailed kitchen, with acres of walnut and polished granite counter space to set platters of food out for guests, is complimented by a true chef's station with top of the line appliances and an easy flow for preparation of exquisite meals. With both an outdoor dining area and a traditional kitchen table, this large space feels very intimate and family friendly while affording flexibility to serve as the hub for large gatherings. The formal living room is just beyond the kitchen and opens onto the flagstone terrace and leads to the circular office with nearly 360 degree views of the property and the river. A private guest bedroom overlooking the spring fed pond as well as a large pantry and massive laundry room round out the first floor. Climbing the circular formal staircase brings one to the master suite with French doors leading onto a large private balcony with commanding views of the Hudson River and Catskills. A beautiful marble master bath features a soaking tub, separate shower and his and her vanities and is situated next to two large walk in closets. Separated from the master suite, one finds three large bedrooms with ensuite baths. A separate media room is located on the third level of the home with theater seating for nine. The lower level is equipped with a wine room, a gaming/family room, half bath and leads to the attached, three car garage. Anywhere, this home would be considered a gem, but when situated with such wonderful views of the Hudson River and Catskills, it becomes a rare gem indeed. The owners took full advantage of the topography when building the home to maximize the outdoor living spaces that set this home apart. The central flagstone terrace has covered outdoor dining and entertaining areas. A stone walk leads to a gazebo flanked by stone walls with commanding views while another walkway leads to the inground pool with fully equipped pool house, half bath and outdoor shower. This grand property offers the perfect blend of formal sophistication with a true place for your family to call home. Walking distance to Metro North.
