The designer kitchen features white O'Brien Harris cabinetry, marble counters, backsplashes, a custom island with maple butcher block top and marble ends, Edgar Berebi hardware, Wolf range, SubZero refrigerator/freezer. Shaw bar sink, and so much more! The 2nd floor has four large bedrooms, three renovated bathrooms, and two dressing rooms, all with treetop views of the property -new oak hardwood floors were added to this level. The primary bedroom suite was renovated in 2013. It is complete with a fireplace, Bagues sconces, custom closets/doors with Berebi hardware, and a dressing room with lovely built-in dressers, shoe drawers, and a settee. The marble bath has a double vanity, wet room, and private WC. The expansive 1.45-acre lot boasts significant table land with mature trees and a lush lawn bordered by a ravine. The South Garden, with a fountain, was installed in 2019 and is a wonderful spot for Tuscan-style outdoor dining and entertaining. Elm Tree is not a "through" street at the ravine, so this location is truly a private oasis.
