      Rarely does a home so timeless and beautiful in such a spectacular location become available. Perhaps the most well known estate in highly sought after Bluffview, it sits upon a hilltop at the corner of winding Shadywood and Alan Dale lanes and commands views of the 1.26 acres of meticulously landscaped grounds & wooded surroundings from every window. If one didn’t know better one would feel as though they were in New England, the Carolinas, or even England or Ireland.

      The current owners have taken this graceful traditional house to the highest level with numerous updates that combine every modern amenity. The masterfully proportioned rooms with their numerous fireplaces, elegant windows, & luxurious finishes create an ambiance of warmth and elegance throughout.

      Handsome millwork and a lovely staircase greet one in the front entry hall from which an enfilade of rooms unfolds. The formal living and dining rooms flank the entry hall. The living room with fireplace opens into a comfortable den with walls of windows and a fireplace with bookcases on either side.

      The large dining room with bay window leads into the wet bar with copper sink, icemaker and wine fridge and to an open dining area with walls of windows that adjoins the warm and welcoming cook’s kitchen which includes a farm sink in the soapstone island, granite countertops, double dishwashers, full size separate Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, Viking six-burner range with griddle, and Dacor double ovens.

      Across from the kitchen island is a lovely sitting area with stone fireplace and hearth, and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the wide veranda outside. A butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen and dining room has glass front cabinets with wood countertops, a Sub-Zero wine cooler and two refrigerator drawers for cold drinks below.

      Yet another living area is a lovely brick-walled sunroom with polished brick floors which runs along the back of the house and completes the downstairs floor plan. The double see-through fireplace that is enjoyed by the living room is also in the sunroom.

      There is a space for every season and time of day. The quiet den has French doors leading to a small terrace with a fountain. A stone patio adjoins and is perfect for alfresco dining.

      The serene pool, with its charming water feature and surrounded by a flagstone terrace, is at the highest point of the property and overlooks the sloping lawn. Through a charming gas-lit iron arch at the end of a gravel path is an utterly delightful guest house (or cabana, artist studio, retreat) with slate floors, a fireplace, living room, bedroom and kitchen. It is enchantingly tucked away and even has its own secret garden with iron fence. Above the three-car garage and adjoining the house via covered passageway, one finds a luxurious fourth bedroom with en suite bath and sitting room (or exercise room, office), and kitchen.

      At the top of the stairs on the second floor one finds a comfortable sitting room and an open office area with two closets and built in desk and shelving.

      The master bedroom overlooks the gorgeous front yard with its impressive wide stone driveway that winds up the hill. A cozy fireplace makes this bedroom a welcome retreat. The master bath with separate walk in closets, dual vanities, and separate tub and shower, also has a door that opens onto a private balcony. There are two more bedrooms each with a private bath and one with a sitting area with built- in desk and shelving.

      This timeless home is the epitome of Bluffview--- Refined, sophisticated and classic, and yet, at the same time infinitely livable, comfortable and very at home in nature.
