Property Description

Designed and built by renowned architect Benjamin Marshall, this turn-of-the-century Italianate Revival style home is one of the grand dames of Kenwood. This home has been thoughtfully updated however many original features have been preserved including electrified gas light fixtures, beamed and ornamental ceilings, rift sawn oak floors, paneling, fireplaces and more. Designed for entertaining, the main level includes a marvelous foyer with a mosaic inlaid floor and an impressive central staircase that leads up to the sky-lit atrium. The massive living room opens out to a private terrace and fenced garden framed in mature arborvitae trees. Other features of the main level include a formal dining room, a den/study, a newer eat-in kitchen with SubZero, Wolf, Miele, and Fisher Paykel appliances with a breakfast room, a sunroom, and a guest bath. The second level includes four bedrooms, each connected to a bath and dressing room. The primary bath has been updated but the original clawfoot tub and frieze of frolicking cherubs have been preserved. The third level includes a magnificent ballroom with a Moorish motif and a deep blue domed ceiling with recessed lights that resemble stars. The "fainting room" on the original layout makes for a wonderful office. Two additional bedrooms and a full bath are also on this level. The highlight of the lower level is an original "log cabin room" with rough-hewn log paneling, a stone fireplace, and a pine floor. Other lower-level features include a wine room, laundry room, exercise room, mechanicals, and storage. The backyard is fully fenced and includes a patio, mature landscaping, and secure parking with two cars accessible via a motorized gate. Upgrades over the years include the installation of zoned central a/c, central humidification, replacement windows, a newer boiler, and a newer hot water heater. This home is ideally close to Kenwood shopping and dining, and several excellent schools.
