Property Description

Opportunities like this rarely come along! Designed by architect George Maher, this 1894 Gold Coast home was meticulous renovated over three years. The result is a sophisticated 9,700 sqft home filled with mint-condition classical architectural details. The elegant Beaux-Art style white limestone facade is a standout on the block. Once inside, the handsome plaster moldings, ornate paneling, fashionable herringbone floors, and resplendent lighting define this exceptional residence. Set on an oversized lot, the interior is generously proportioned with dramatic height ceilings and a flexible floorplan ideal for entertaining, family and friends. The formal rooms are ideal for both traditional and contemporary furnishings. They flow into an eat-in kitchen with top quality appliances and workmanship. The adjacent terrace and garage top deck are ideal for al fresco dining. There are 5 or 6 upstairs bedrooms, finely finished baths, as well as a den, office, and penthouse level entertainment room with a second kitchen. The grand master suite has a magnificent cove ceiling and fireplace (one of 6), a custom dressing room and a sumptuous marble bath. The terraced penthouse level roof deck is the jewel on the crown. Beautifully landscaped with a built-in grill and outdoor fireplace, it is an oasis in the city. The lower level includes a rec room, a huge laundry room (which doubles as a staging area when catering events), another bedroom or exercise room, and huge storage. This home has a one-car garage and a parking pad for a second car.
