An architecturally remarkable home from floor to the 25 foot groin vault ceiling in the grandest of corps de logis. With mezzanine balconies, rich ironwork, silver leaf paneling and high volume artistry, each design choice is focused on vertical symmetry and meticulous wood craftsmanship to elevate the home's most distinctive qualities. Home features include an intentional selection of woods including exposed 150-year-old reclaimed barn beams and handcrafted oak with mahogany doors. An uncompromising and moisture resistant quartered/rift sawn floor spills across the home with medullary rays that echo the sunlight from over-sized windows throughout the home. A kitchen by world-renowned British designer Christopher Peacock makes a dramatic statement in the heart of the home with its distinctive inlayed cabinetry, hardware and choice of monastic lighting. Singular to this kitchen are 2 Calcutta gold marble islands and professional grade appliances for the discriminating chef or enthusiastic novice. Looking from the kitchen is a stunning view of the gardens and egress to a double-stone terrace with barrel vaulted over-hang reminiscent of a Medici villa with its decorative pergola shaded path. An extensive basement retreat features entertaining space, wet bar, expansive workshop with exterior access and 5th bedroom with an additional kitchen/living area. -A striking home for the discriminating homeowner in sought after Cherry Farm.
