Sophisticated residence brimming with European elegance
With a dramatic foyer and breathtaking double-staircase whose elegance is on par with “Gone With The Wind’s” beloved Tara, this distinguished residence is one of Easton’s finest.
Skilled workmanship, quality materials and fine attention to detail characterize this thoughtfully designed colonial, set on 3 private acres with peaceful views, a tranquil pond and abundant wildlife.
It was the serene location and the vision of what could be designed and built that first attracted the current owners here.
“This house was designed for the enjoyment of the views and the open layout concept that affords a magnificent entry and a sophisticated European flair throughout,” the owner states. “And the neighborhood speaks for itself. We enjoy walks any time with friendly and quiet neighbors. It’s the perfect antidote for office stress.”
“This custom-built colonial is truly an experience,” listing agent Maria Capela said. “It is a property that must be toured in person to fully take in all of the beauty inside and out and imagine living in all the spaces. You will instantly feel and appreciate all that this home offers.”
Double-doors open into a grand two-story entry where a soaring ceiling, granite floor with decorative inlay, handsome raised panel trim and a sweeping staircase sets a stunning tone that is carried throughout the home’s 5,095 square feet.
The foyer opens into a captivating great room that is ideal for entertaining and everyday living among a finely appointed living space graced with beautiful inlaid hardwood floors, 20-foot ceilings with an interior balcony, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace and walls of windows that open to the deck overlooking the pond and natural surroundings.
“The huge deck makes entertaining super easy and is the perfect place to enjoy the pond views and the wildlife that quickly become your friends and neighbors,” adds the owner.
The great room is open to the magnificent gourmet kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, custom white cabinetry, granite countertops, a spacious dining area and even a built-in barbecue.
