Enchanting English Tudor Estate

Beautifully situated on over a 1.4 acre gated storybook location, this exceptional, five-to-six bedroom, five-bath home is architecturally and historically significant. Original features of handcrafted quality, including wrought-iron hardware, hardwood floors, and leaded and stained-glass windows are complimented by smart modern conveniences.

The main floor has a gracious entry with powder and cloakroom, formal dining room, fire-placed living room with French doors, and a paneled library, also with a fireplace. The kitchen has solid cabinetry, stone counters, prep sink, Viking, Sub-Zero, Thermador, and KitchenAid appliances, and a lovely view of the front garden. A large breakfast area with built-in buffet and access to the rear deck overlooks the pool and spa and private rear gardens.

Off the kitchen: a full bath and a spacious family room, also with exterior access; a pub area has an authentic English mahogany walk-through bar with marble counter. A short stair leads to a huge office-conference room ideal for meeting space or an at-home professional. The lower level has a large laundry and an au pair suite, complete with full bath, kitchenette, and access to the rear yard. The oversized garage has space for four cars, and the front motor court has additional guest parking.

A gracious spiral staircase leads to an upstairs reception hallway. The elegant master suite has a fireplace, generous walk-in closet with built-ins and dressing area, and lavish marble bathroom with Jacuzzi and separate lavatory. Three additional bedrooms, two full baths, and a den with built-in cabinetry and shelving finish the upper level. A turret bedroom or studio retreat feels like a private aerie with views from leaded casement windows looking through trees over the pool area and rear of the property. Also in the turret is a separate wrapping/project room. Ample storage and closets throughout.

Meandering paths through oaks and over the creek and attractive stonework throughout the property lead to a play area and several outbuildings, including a freestanding wine cellar. This rare home exemplifies graceful Tudor charm and historic Hillsborough elegance.
