SubdivisionBeresford Hall

Agent Remarks

There was no expense spared for this majestic home in the very private neighborhood of Beresford Hall. Situated on just under one acre of land and surrounded by protected woodlands makes this home one of the most private home sites in the neighborhood. No home can be built to the front, the rear or the right hand side of this beautifully wooded site. The entry to this stately home welcomes you with an imposing solid mahogany door and intricate copper lanterns. The front porch boasts IPE flooring, tongue and groove cypress ceilings, Spanish cedar railings and historically reproduced 4"" spindles. Gorgeous American Black Walnut flooring sprawls endlessly throughout this home. The study off of the main foyer is covered with inspiring mahogany panels on the walls and ceilings and built-in maho gany cabinets. The foyer, grand hall, dining and formal living are adorned with hardwood paneling and four piece crown moldings. The master suite is on the main floor and boasts a large wood burning fire place, a private covered deck, and a naturally illuminated hexagonal sitting area. The amazing custom kitchen is complimented with a 48" side by side Subzero refrigerator, a 48" wolf four burner range with a center French top, wine cooler, Bosch dishwasher, and trash compactor. Beautiful beaded inset distressed cabinets (throughout home) are adorned with top of the line granite. This wonderful kitchen opens up to a massive family room with a 12' coffered ceiling embellished with 5 piece crown and accompanied by a large wood burning fireplace. The hardwood trim detail in this home is dramatic with coffered ceilings in the study, formal dining room, family room and master bedroom. 2 piece chair rail throughout and oversized three piece baseboards. Every doorway has over 30 individual pieces of wood that are artistically joined to form a riveting pass through. The widows are similarly crafted and frame the exterior in imaginative beauty. The second floor is accessed by a magnificent stair that is paneled from the first floor to the third, and also by a second spiral stair ornamented with walnut treads and railings. The spiral stair also leads to a wonderful game room with a full bar, which includes a beverage center and ice maker, and is flanked by a designated billiard room (no short stick needed) on one side and an exercise room on the other. The main stair continues to the third floor and could be used as a fifth bedroom or large playroom, and contains a full private bath, as does each of the other four bedrooms. Each bathroom is unique and is complimented with travertine and/or marble floors, showers and countertops. The exterior is laden with five separate porches, 4 of which are covered and trimmed with IPE floors, cypress ceilings, and historical rails and spindles. The fifth is radius masonry and exists splendidly to the large fenced back yard. Two garage attached to the house, and a four stall detached garage, with mother-in-law suite above. Must see home!
