For More Information: http://www.turpinrealtors.com/contact_us/ Showcased on a cul-de-sac of distinctive custom homes, this grand residence draws its inspiration from the 19th century shingle-style manors of Newport. Built in 2009, it is a vision of rusticity and elegance rendered with fine craftsmanship, materials and technological innovations. Stone and cedar siding, a copper-roofed turret and expansive porches affirm the home’s compelling heritage. Indoors, high ceilings amplify the approximately 8500 square feet of living space. Rich detailing is portrayed with artistically designed coffered ceilings, carved-panel walls, layered molding, gracefully arched passages. Travertine and oak is underfoot and wide oak staircases are supplemented with an all-level elevator. Best in class is apparent in the cherry paneled library prefaced with sitting room and includes one of the home’s five artfully framed fireplaces. The spacious kitchen, designed by Leonardis, sports Downsview cabinetry, an 11.5-foot island, pantry and chef’s grade appliances. At the adjoining breakfast room, sliding-glass doors open to the Adirondack-style stone and cedar porch complete with outdoor kitchen. Nearby the family room soars to twenty feet. Luxury and comfort continue to the second level where the master suite includes a sitting room, large custom closet and marble bath with steam shower, whirlpool tub, men’s room and sunning balcony. Four additional bedrooms, two master-sized, and all with radiant heated baths and generous closets as well as a spacious recreation room share this level. A sixth suite is located in the main level’s service hall. Unfinished spaces include the 10-foot high full basement and walk-up attic. There are also two, 2-car garages each fitted with a GarageTek storage system. Among the mechanicals are a Crestron smart home system, 5-zone heating and cooling, Lutron lighting, two-75-gallon hot water heaters, sophisticated security, interior and exterior sound, lawn and landscape irrigation and Kohler 20kW generator. Summarily heightening this offering’s allure is its engaging pool compound. A stone fireplace and pergola stand at the helm. Waterfalls add dramatic impact to the salt water pool and spa accompanied with fire pit. There are built-in benches, a carved stone chair, cozy cove and slide. Jandy controls lend a hand with the fun. And lush landscaping adds color and texture to this delightful idyll.
