Just what is modern Victorian anyway? It is a new update on classic elements, where contemporary style is artfully balanced with old-world charm. True Victorian style is ornate and often too “frou-frou”; it can leave an overwhelmingly feminine and dark impression. However, there are still a lot of elements of traditional style that people gravitate towards. The modern Victorian look embodies all the pretty elements of classic style but it has been given a contemporary twist to suit the taste of today’s homeowners.
Introducing this stunning modern Victorian custom home on a shy acre of wooded playground. Situated at the top of a hill with just 3 homes sharing the private road, this 4 bedroom home has been highly remodeled to seamlessly blend modern amenities and style with the timeless architecture. As you arrive at this secluded estate, the 3 water features will immediately capture your attention, while the rich architectural details of the home will transport you to an era of forgotten charm. Open the double Mahogany front doors, and a carved lion newel greets you at the foyer with marble tile floors and an intricate brass gas-lamp chandelier. This is Victorian showiness at its best, with carefully selected carpeting to highlight the ornate staircase. The parlor is centered by a marble fireplace and adorned with thick crown moulding and chair rail, opening up to the Dining room with French doors and cutout bay windows.
The home has been built to the highest standards, with real-wood doors and double-hung windows throughout. The gourmet kitchen is outfitted with a $30,000 AGA range with 4 ovens, Subzero refrigerator, stone floors, and a large center stainless-steel topped center island. The cozy family room is warmed by a stove, ready for family game nights. The rest of the main floor is completed by a private study, a powder room with a sauna (which can easily be converted into a 3/4 bath instead), and even the garage is remodeled.
Ascend the stairs to find 3 secondary bedrooms, a beautifully-detailed guest bath recently remodeled to add a custom shower, and a brand new laundry room with ceramic tiled flooring, with ladder access to the massive storage space in the attic. Watch a movie in the generously sized media room with built-in shelves on an entire wall. The Master bedroom suite boasts a large walk-in closet, a just-remodeled bathroom with a romantic tub with radiant heated marble tiled flooring, and a massive custom shower for two. But wait, push on a secret panel on the wall, and open up to the secret awe-inspiring library with wall-to-wall floor to ceiling bookcases and a seating area in the turret. This is truly a home for a homeowner with the most discerning tastes.
This gorgeous home is situated on professionally landscaped yard with forested trails waiting for exploration. Everything has been thoughtfully considered: Drought-resistant landscaping, the shed has been wired to be hot-tub ready, a gate opens up to the neighboring cul-de-sac for convenient waste management pickup, and even the dog run has astro-turf installed for easy maintenance. If you are looking for a richly architected, beautifully updated home with all the modern amenities, and in a family-friendly neighborhood who frequently gather for community events, you have found this perfect gem!
