The first thing you’ll notice upon pulling into the tree-lined driveway of this stately brick home is a formal English garden festooned with blooms. This pretty pocket is just a sliver of the paradisiacal 6-acre grounds that unfold in every direction. Tidy stone pathways meander through a Japanese garden, a wildflower meadow, an orchard, a vegetable garden and more. Much of the land is irrigated and serves as a favorite
landing spot for butterflies, birds and other important pollinators. Also on the property is a discreetly positioned solar field that drastically lowers utility costs. The house is full of ample rooms with creamy white walls and a combination of hardwood and tile floors. Spanning the back of the house, the sunroom, the family room with a fireplace and wet bar and the breakfast room are all graced with incredible sunlight and views of the backyard and a neighboring pear orchard. The kitchen is centrally situated and ready for the preparation of big meals with a cooking island, double ovens and a walk-in pantry. There is a room through French doors that works well as an office, but you may opt to set up your desk in one of the out-of-the-way spaces of the lower level, where antique pieces imported from India make striking embellishments. The wine cellar, billiard room and a custom library are all finely finished. The main stairs lead to 3 bedrooms, each with a dedicated bathroom. The main suite is especially roomy with a high tray ceiling, yet rich wood built-ins and a gas stove keep things cozy. An extraordinarily spacious in-law suite enjoys the quiet separation of a private staircase. Rest assured that this tranquil Xanadu will remain a haven thanks to a neighboring 90-acre nursery, which is preserved.
