Drawing inspiration from centuries-old manor homes of Europe, this Institute area residence is full of graceful details and craftsmanship of the finest quality. Yet architect Robert Bennett clearly had a modern lifestyle in mind when he designed the masterful, light-infused floor plan with a central kitchen that draws everyone together, whether around the island, in front of the fireplace, or seated in the breakfast bay. Broad floor-to-ceiling windows capturing views of the bluestone terrace and lovely, fenced yard with majestic evergreens are a defining feature of most spaces, but the architectural pi~ce de r~sistance is the floating staircase separating the soaring entry and two-story dining area--both with wide board pine floors featuring a delicately stenciled border. The living room has refined dentil molding and built-in bookcases framing the fireplace and dual entrances. A sun-flooded multi-purpose room with alternating walls of windows and built-ins can function as a family room, office, or sunroom. A spacious bedroom suite with French doors to an intimate enclosed patio has its own full bath and walk-in closet--perfect for in-laws, a nanny, or guests. A powder room, butler's pantry, gardening/utility room, laundry and access to the attached garage round out the main level. Upstairs, the master suite with fireplace, elegant bath, and generous closet space; and two additional bedrooms, each with their own baths en suite--plus a large loft with built-in desk, skylight, and closet. Finished lower level has a wine room, wall of cedar-lined storage closets, and plenty of room for billiards, exercise, and play spaces.
