Rarely does a home so timeless and beautiful in such a spectacular location become available. Perhaps the most well known estate in highly sought after Bluffview, this home is sited upon a hilltop at the corner of winding Shadywood and Alan Dale Lanes, and commands views of the 1.26 acres of meticulously landscaped grounds & wooded surroundings from every window.

The current owners have taken this graceful traditional house to the highest level with numerous updates that combine every modern amenity. The masterfully proportioned rooms with their numerous fireplaces, elegant windows, & luxurious finishes create an ambiance of warmth and elegance throughout.

Handsome millwork and a lovely staircase greet one in the front entry hall from which an enfilade of rooms unfolds. The formal living and dining rooms flank the entry hall. The living room with fireplace opens to the comfortable den, as well as to the spacious sunroom running along the back of the home with polished brick floors and a wall of windows. A walled garden with fountain and a large stone terrace are just outside---wonderful spots for alfresco entertaining.

The very spacious dining room with bay window leads into the wet bar area with copper sink, icemaker and wine fridge, and to an open breakfast room lined with windows. The warm, welcoming cook’s kitchen includes a farm sink in the soapstone island, granite countertops, double dishwashers, full size separate Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer, Viking six-burner range with griddle, and Dacor double ovens. A cozy sitting area with stone fireplace and floor to ceiling windows anchors the kitchen and overlooks the wide veranda outside. A butler’s pantry adjacent to the kitchen and dining room is equipped with a Sub-Zero wine cooler and two refrigerator drawers for cold drinks.

At the top of the stairs on the second floor one finds a comfortable sitting room and an open office area with two closets and built in desk and shelving. The master bedroom overlooks the gorgeous front yard with its impressive wide Pavestone driveway that winds up the hill. A corner fireplace makes this bedroom a welcome retreat. The master bath with separate walk in closets, dual vanities, and separate tub and shower, also has a door that opens onto a private balcony. There are two more bedrooms each with a private bath. One of these has a charming “sleeping porch” sitting area, with built- in desk and shelving. Above the three-car garage and adjoining the house via covered passageway, one finds a luxurious fourth bedroom with bath and sitting room (or exercise room, office), and kitchenette.

The serene pool, surrounded by a flagstone terrace, is at the highest point of the property and has views over the sloping lawn. Through an iron archway at the end of a gravel path is a delightful guest house (or cabana, artist studio, retreat) with slate floors, a fireplace, living room, bedroom and kitchen.

This timeless home is the epitome of Bluffview--- refined, sophisticated and classic and at the same time, infinitely livable, comfortable and very much at home in nature. A home for all seasons!
