Property Description

Exquisite design & high-quality materials define this exceptional home which invites you through a salvaged 100-year-old front door into the spacious tiled foyer. Inside, the living room boasts a wood-burning fireplace with custom hot rolled steel & stone surround, complemented by illuminated built-in shelving on both sides. Dual French doors open to a charming front porch, seamlessly connecting indoor & outdoor living spaces while welcoming natural light into the home. Follow the imported Hakwood Oak flooring to the remarkable De Guilio kitchen, a culinary haven equipped with top-of-the-line Wolf appliances (incl. a convection/steam oven), Sub Zero refrigeration, a built-in coffee maker & closet/pantry. The butler's pantry with ample storage, prep sink & Sub-Zero freezer drawers lead to the sophisticated dining room with grass cloth wall covering & wall paneling. The Carrara marble stone & tile will delight your guests in the powder room & a spacious mudroom with coat closet & shoe cabinet complete the 1st floor. Ascend the sleek staircase, illuminated by one of 11 skylights throughout the home, to discover the luxurious primary suite. This sanctuary with a gas fireplace flanked by dual sets of French doors to a private balcony overlooking the lush yard will melt any problems away. Then relax in your spa-like bath complete with a soaking tub, oversized shower & heated towel bar. Down the hall, two guest bedrooms, a pristine hall bath with Ann Sacks tile, & a convenient second-floor laundry room round out this level. The uppermost level features a cozy reading loft with a skylight & two more larger guest bedrooms, currently used as offices, that also have treetop views & are bathed in warm sunlight. The lower-level family room with 8' ceilings & an electric heated tiled floor has ample space for your oversized couches & you'll still have room for that Peloton and treadmill. Then enjoy a serene walk through the meticulously landscaped yard of trees, perennials & bluestone paths, ensuring vibrant colors year-round, to "the Cove" a coach house featuring two indoor parking spots, EV charging, & an additional utility & storage area. The stylish upper level studio stands out with skylights, wood flooring, a full kitchen opening to a steel cantilevered terrace, laundry room & separate utilities. With a successful rental history on Airbnb, The Cove has earned $75,000 in the last three years, making it a valuable asset. Additional features include both custom and designer lighting throughout which accentuates all of the well-crafted details while creating a warm & inviting atmosphere. You will appreciate the Carrier Infinity dual mechanical system with high-efficiency (quiet furnaces & condensers) heating & cooling. The whole house insulation includes closed-cell spray foam on exterior walls & roof, which provide the greatest insulation for all seasons, Rockwool insulated sound batts between all floors & interior wall insulation between all rooms. Additionally, the property has keyless entry doors, a full security/camera system & a Sonos sound system. With its thoughtful quirks & meticulous craftsmanship, you'll appreciate the attention to detail that went into creating this custom home. Perfectly situated on the beloved "Backlot," this home enjoys an enviable location within walking distance to schools, shops, restaurants, public transportation, & just 1.5 miles from Lighthouse Beach. As a resident, you have access to a hidden gem - The Backlot. This magical park offers a variety of amenities including lighted basketball, gaga court & an ice rink in the winter. It's a hub for community activities such as soccer, baseball, campouts, 4th of July celebrations, movie nights, & even a fantasy football league. Shared with your neighbors, The Backlot is a rare find, making this home truly special. You've discovered your own piece of paradise. Love where you live!
