This exceptional estate is comprised of two residences on 1.25 acres of tranquility, privacy and dreamlike landscapes. Set 100 feet back from Albemarle Street, the main residence and guest house surround a central courtyard and large conservatory providing expansive and flexible indoor-outdoor entertaining possibilities while at the same time ensuring utmost privacy. With 8 Bedrooms, 11 Bathrooms, that include a separate in-law suite, the two homes span over 13,000 square feet. A heated swimming pool and expansive, mature meandering gardens add to this captivating estate, and form a rare urban oasis of understated warmth, privacy and elegance.
Built as two separate homes in 1956 by the owner's grandparents, the houses were reconceived during a five-year renovation that was completed in 2009. Today, a seamlessly blended whole features energy efficiency and an indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Geothermal wells, solar coils, and heat exchangers capture energy to help warm the air, floors, pool and greenhouse. An irrigation well with buried storage tanks waters the garden with unmetered and untreated water. Every feature has been considered for comfort and convenience such as an elevator, instant hot water, snow-melt coils beneath the driveways and public sidewalk, skylights, steam shower, Nuvo integrated sound and video system with 100” automatic viewing screen, Lutron lighting and security system.
