One of Orienta Point's most illustrious properties, this architecturally unique home, beautifully set on 0.58 of an acre with sensational water views of Long Island Sound, creates the perfect setting for sophisticated yet relaxed living and easy entertaining. Built in 1893 as the original stable and carriage house for the Constable Estate, it has been exquisitely restored by the current owner to showcase soaring, open, light-filled spaces blended with luxury amenities. Original details of gothic arched windows, wainscoted ceilings, unique interior brick walls and stone reliefs have been preserved and deftly blended with custom built-in cabinetry, elegant lighting, and chef-appointed appliances creating gracious living spaces.
The original brick courtyard sets the tone and invites you in to a glass enclosed vestibule opening to a spectacular 48 x 34 great room anchored by a floor-to-ceiling fireplace and magnificent windows overlooking the gardens. Handsome bookcases line a wall of the striking dining room with casement windows complemented with large transoms for a light-flooded space. The chef's eat-in kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, oversize Jerusalem stone counters and tumbled stone floors, opening to a stone terrace. A private guest suite or in-law apartment offers a large sitting room, two bedrooms and a beautifully appointed full bath and kitchen area, retaining the original wainscoted ceilings with hay drops and shoots creating a charming ambience.
The second floor offers a media/recreation room with vaulted beam ceilings and custom cabinetry leading to three bedrooms, a full bath, and a private office/bedroom with an additional half bath. The master suite features a sun-filled bedroom with beamed ceilings and alcove sitting area, a large mirrored dressing room with skylight, and a beautifully appointed tile and tumbled marble bathroom with luxury fixtures.
Outside, beautifully landscaped grounds with mature trees surround the expansive lawn and create a serene sense of privacy with upper stone terrace and a separate stone building for storage. A truly distinctive residence only steps from the water, with schools, shops, and MetroNorth minutes away.
