Built in 1937

With two recent major additions/renovations increasing its size to over 8,000 square feet, this elegant and beautifully renovated Colonial estate is discreetly sited on a serene private street in the highly desirable Kent neighborhood. Perfectly situated across from Battery Kemble Park on just over one acre of extensively landscaped gardens and grounds, this residence offers a remarkable opportunity to escape the bustle of the city while still enjoying convenient access to urban amenities. Originally built in 1937 the original farmhouse was designed by legendary, pioneer woman architect Gertrude Sawyer with a later addition by notable architect, Anne McCutcheon Lewis. Since then, and more recently, the residence and property have been meticulously renovated and expanded again to include over 8,000 square feet of living space and extraordinary gardens and outdoor living spaces. No detail was overlooked in the exceptional transformation of this historic residence, with masterful collaboration from Solis Betancourt & Sherrill (interior), BarnesVanze Architects (architect), and Arentz Landscape Architects (landscaping). The stunning grounds and gardens of the residence designed by Richard Arentz are unparalleled. Spanning over one acre of land, the exterior is private and wonderful for entertaining, offering multiple seating/al fresco dining areas with outdoor speakers, extensive landscaping, numerous fruit trees, a perineal garden, honeybee hives, a vegetable garden, basketball court, and an impressive 50' pool surrounded by a bluestone sundeck. This exceptional and rarely available offering provides the peace of country living without sacrificing modern comfort and convenience. Extensive and beautifully designed accent and other lighting has been placed around the entire property for evening entertaining ambiance. Upon entry into the home, a welcoming foyer provides transition to the rooms on the main level. The formal living room with an early American, antique pine mantel and a large fireplace is directly opposite the formal dining room. The modernized farmhouse kitchen is well-appointed with Vermont slate and zinc countertops, a large center island, two dishwashers, two ovens and sinks, a wine refrigerator, and abundant cabinetry storage. The kitchen overlooks the rear vegetable garden and allee of fruit trees and includes a large pantry and mudroom. The expansive family room is wrapped in glass windows and offers an impressive fireplace with a stunning antique mantle. The room is a haven of entertainment, featuring a concealed drop-down 11' wide movie screen, a discreet projector, dramatic surround sound, and Lutron blackout shades, providing an immersive cinematic experience. Both the kitchen and family room provide access to multiple separate terraces on the main level, creating a wonderful flow for entertaining and seamlessly blending indoor and outdoor spaces. There is also a piano room, breakfast room, powder room, and two coat closets on the main floor. The second level of the residence offers four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, including the luxurious primary suite. The primary bedroom has a dramatic western facing window overlooking the garden, multiple walk-in closets, blackout shades, and an en-suite bathroom with dual vanities, a steam shower, and separate soaking tub. The primary bedroom also provides access to the third floor, which offers a private exercise room, office, and oversized cedar closet. The walk-out lower level is expansive and enhanced with beautiful blue stone flooring. This level has TV/playrooms and a spectacular billiards room with built-ins that opens onto the outdoor pool area. There is also a lovely guest room/office with exterior access and a wall of windows overlooking the pool deck. Completing the lower level is a full bathroom, wine room, storage room, and laundry room.
