The house was originally the carriage house to a large stone and brick home next door - the Estate home on Grandin Place. It became a single family residence in the 1950's.
This is the first time this house has been available for sale in over fifty years! Above grade, there are 5128 square feet of finished space. There is an additional seven hundred square feet of finished space in the walkout lower level of the master wing,
The ceiling in the foyer soars to 19 feet at its peak, and is a bright and light-filled open space. The floors are Italian marble.
The wooden ceiling under the second floor landing is an introduction to the beamed ceilings that are consistent throughout most of the first floor. Lots of wall space for the collector! A perfectly unique first impression...
The living room is exceptional! The ceilings top out at eleven and a half feet, and the parquet flooring is laid in a Versailles pattern. At thirty-eight feet in length, this room is where the carriages were stored and now provides a number of seating and
The living room fireplace splits the room - through the solid wood French doors to the right is the foyer, and to the left is the family room/library.
The balcony at the back of the house offers views that stretch on for miles...
The dining room is a continuation of the living room, with the same eleven and a half foot beamed ceilings, lots of wall space, and built-in display cases.
The dining room also enjoys walkout potential to the deck. It's an elegant corner of the home, but could so easily be incorporated into everyday living.
The kitchen is charmingly vintage. The space is open and bright.
The breakfast room is situated at the front of the house and, with the kitchen, makes for one very large and open room to be enjoyed by family and guests alike.
The breakfast room and additional counter seating.
The library/family room has seen many uses over the years! It's an informal spot to entertain, a quiet place to enjoy music or a book, or it could be a full on media room or a stately study. The high beamed ceilings continue through this room. The master
The library/family room also adjoins the living room and the front hall.
The formal powder room on the first floor is just off the front hall, before entering the library/family room.
A small study in the owner's suite.
The master bedroom suite is part of an addition that was completed around 1970. The first floor suite encompasses over 750 square feet.
There is a balcony off the master bedroom.
There are two second floor bedroom suites. This room is the smaller of the two rooms but still graciously large enough to enjoy a well-lit sitting area. Bathroom is en-suite.
Originally the master bedroom suite when the carriage house was turned into a home, this room is extraordinarily large and includes several sitting areas.
The fireplace in this bedroom was never used and can not be warranted. The bathroom is en-suite.
A wonderful overhead view of the foyer and the landing.
Patterned brick terraces for casual outdoor entertaining.
The master wing addition offers finished lower level space. Originally designed as a nanny suite, the space included a bathroom and a kitchenette. Over the years, the kitchen features disappeared and the bathroom remained a half bath, but the potential
The finished lower level adds about 750 square feet. This is a flexible space and could be a bedroom, a home office, or a playroom, among other things.
The lower level brick patio is steps from the finished lower level space and is completely fenced in.
The unfinished basement is really a misnomer for this space. Originally, this was where the horses were stabled, but ultimately became the owner's art studio complete with good natural light and high ceilings.
Lower level walkout from the unfinished space.
Wonderful storage or play space. Concrete floors.
High ceilings and walls display the owner's work.
The views from the back of the house extend down to Mt. Lookout Square and beyond.
