Our listing copywriter called this property "intoxicating," and we're at a loss for a better word because we're equally inebriated by it. On the outside, it's a generously-sized shingled home of relative ubiquity, with stained shingles, forest green trim and other evergreen features for wooded-in country homes. While it certainly makes a nice appearance, this home is basically the architectural equivalent of a suspenseful movie climax. As you open the front door, you're not even close to prepared for what comes next; in this case, vast interior spaces with incredible depth and nuance craftily understated by the subtleties of its exterior. The artist-owner filled barred no consideration in crafting a truly heavenly home, with soaring ceilings, stone fireplaces, custom millwork, honey-hued oak floors. Clapboard-lined hallways lead to rooms each with their own unique character, including a master suite with private deck and versatile recreation spaces. A Walden-esque landscape on a pictureque pond includes a dreamy tree swing, Har-Tru tennis court, studio/pool house and a free-form pool within an expansive stone terrace designed to entertain. Add a prime Millwood location with easy access to the North County Trailway and this home is true bliss for the active and tasteful looking to make a perfect life north of New York City.
