Built in 1931 and designed by noted architect David Adler, this historic treasure was once the coach house for the Albert Lasker Estate. Completely renovated, this special home is beautifully situated on 1.75 manicured acres and features over 6,000 square feet of living space, including 5 bedrooms, 5.1 baths, and a 3-car garage. Special amenities include a Ludowici clay tile roof, 4 fireplaces, soaring ceilings, exquisite millwork, hardwood floors throughout, and French doors leading outdoors from most rooms. The grand foyer welcomes you into the home, showcasing a gorgeous brass staircase and hand-stained hardwood floors that incorporate florets original to the entry doors. The exquisite gourmet kitchen boasts center island with quartzite countertops, professional grade appliances, and a cozy breakfast room with fireplace. The current homeowners masterfully reinvented the floor plan on the first floor to best utilize the living spaces for today's family living. Designed for entertaining, the first floor offers several gracious rooms for family and friends to gather. There are two first floor bedrooms, including the spacious primary suite with a walk-in closet and a stunning, completely remodeled primary bathroom. Upstairs you will find three additional ensuite bedrooms, one which could serve as a primary bedroom if desired, and a spacious sitting area to relax and enjoy. Plenty of storage space with 2 basements, an attic with finished flooring and space above garage. The lush grounds include a lovely bluestone patio with pergola, built-in fire pit, and fabulous professional landscaping with perennial gardens. Remodeled to perfection, this Preservation Award Winner will win your heart! Truly one of a kind masterpiece!
