The front door is windowed black lacquer encased in stone sills imported from Cooperstown and a has a working gas lamp, setting the stage for the beauty that lies within. The interior of the home is clad in a chic palette of black and white. Ebony stained Brazilian cherry floors are bathed in all day natural light from North and South facing exposures. A small library with Putnam rolling ladder and custom bookshelves provide a tranquil entry moment and invite one to notice the 11.5’ high ceilings that culminate in exquisite crown mouldings.

A beautiful kitchen is appointed in SubZero, Bosch and Miele appliances with cabinets handcrafted by Michael Fuelner.
The rear garden is nothing short of idyllic. Enclosed by a stone wall covered with lush ivy, there is a persimmon tree overhanging a working Moravian tiled fountain, an iron balcony imported from Paris and a slate patio that is a picturesque setting for outdoor dining and lounging.
