Experience lakeside living in an elegant Milbrook Association English Tudor with a turret.
This incredibly fetching home is lovingly nestled on a direct waterfront lot with panoramic views of idyllic lake vistas from almost every room. As a Cotswold style lakefront home, the house catches the eyes with its steeply pitched gable roof, groupings of windows, and decorative half-timbering.
With 5 bedrooms and 5 full baths spread across 5,013 square feet - there's ample space to live a comfortable lifestyle; and plenty of flexibility - all options are left open as regards creative use of rooms for office/hobby purposes, entertaining, get-togethers, PLUS family/friend visitations.
The formal living room exudes English Manor charm with its vaulted ceiling and a stone fireplace. The adjacent family room - with fireplace and flat screen - is bathed in natural light and lake reflections. Multiple french doors exit to a waterfront stone terrace.
The gourmet kitchen is characterized by rich dark wood and granite galore, PLUS high end appliances, custom maple cabinets, a stone fireplace, and a sunny breakfast room overlooking the lake. Breakfast always tastes a little better within eyesight of the water!
For a proper dinner service, the large formal dining room - complete with a wet bar, maple cabinets and a crystal chandelier - checks all of the boxes.
The master bedroom was designed with lavish comfort and sublime quality of life in mind. At night, wind down to the soft, warm glow emanating from the fireplace. In the morning, walk across the spacious sleeping quarters and step out onto your water-view balcony to greet the dawn! And don't forget about the luxe bath with a fireplace!
What's in the turret? An office/den, of course. And if you need a change of scenery, you can always retire to the custom oak library.
The grounds are meticulously landscaped, with colorful plantings, mature trees, AND exterior nightscape lighting overlooking yard and lake.
The location can't be beat - "in town" living in a pastoral setting, just minutes to Greenwich Avenue shops, restaurants, parks, schools, the train and highways.
The open house for this property is on Sunday, March 26 from 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm.
And don't hesitate to let the agent know you saw the open house notice at Living Greenwich :-)
