This remarkable compound is a self-contained private resort made for entertaining or pure escapism. It's a magical world unto itself, a captivating and sophisticated blend of luxurious old world comfort and cutting edge amenities. The buildings forming this unique compound have been brilliantly designed by world-renowned Heiberg Cummings, with no detail overlooked. The main house at #141 features a gracious living room with fireplace, a classic library, elegant formal dining room and chef's kitchen with professional-grade appliances, large island, marble countertops and sunny breakfast area with window banquettes. The luxurious master suite has an exquisite bath, sitting area with fireplace and French doors to the grounds. There are two additional guest suites on the first floor and three more inviting bedroom suites upstairs. Outdoors the beautifully landscaped grounds enclose a heated gunite pool,
pool house and two-car garage.
Next door at #145, a vine-covered arbor welcomes one into an enchanting courtyard with an antique central fountain surrounded by fragrant lavender and borders of aromatic boxwood. There are four exquisite bedroom suites in the corners of this square home, centered around a huge, high ceilinged great room with a formal dining area, fireplace and kitchen with marble countertops and backsplashes and stainless steel appliances. The finished lower level contains two bedrooms, a full bath, huge laundry room and a large room that could become a gym or theater. For outdoor fun there's a sunken fire pit with seating for 18 to 20, a 20' x 40' heated saltwater gunite pool, a large Jacuzzi and a cold plunge pool. The spa building includes a full kitchen and great room with fireplace. A true spa, the facilities include a sauna, a hot and steamy caldarium and a warm tepidarium. There is a treatment room with massage table, a bedroom and full bath, and a balcony overlooking the great room (the site of many parties). Past the spa is the original building on the property, which has been used as an artist's studio. This unique compound offers the ultimate escape.
