The crown jewel of Queen Village is well known by all for its unparalleled grandeur and towering cathedral windows. The prestige of this home begins with its beautiful brick facade with black wrought iron adornments and a double thick facia that resembles a crown that soars above neighboring homes. This grand home of over 5,000 square feet pulls out all the stops. Immediately upon entering, there is a formal reception room with rich wood paneled wainscotting, a hidden wet bar, and a gas-burning fireplace that creates an intimate gathering place for guests. On the first floor, you will also find an office/library featuring wood columns at the threshold, a beautiful staircase with antique finials and a custom-made stair runner from Belgium with brass hardware, a full marble bath with a walk-in shower, a laundry room with folding area, wet sink, and cabinetry, an oversized coat closet, followed by a back hallway with bonus/guest space and the 2 car garage, and an elevator. After ascending the stately staircase, you will encounter a charming, European-style atrium flooded with sunlight from the three skylights that can take you through French glass doors to the dining room or kitchen. The enormous, south-facing chef's kitchen with three oversized windows, wood floors, gleaming white/glass cabinets, stunning marble countertops that remind you of artic ice with tinges of blue, new commercial appliances (Viking, Subzero) walk-in pantry. When entering the formal dining room, you'll notice the majestic lead crystal chandelier, marble mantle, and wood burning fireplace. Around the corner, you will see a beautifully appointed powder room with crown molding. Completing the second floor is a grand living room that boasts a 14' high ceiling with stunning crown moldings, another wood-burning fireplace with a hand-carved Carrera marble mantle, a floor-to-ceiling built-in curio cabinet, and the beginning of those famous cathedral windows, newly crafted out of solid mahogany and approved by the Historical Society.
Up the turned staircase, you will pass a stained-glass window arrive at the newly finished primary suite. Double doors that are seven and a half feet tall and open to a primary suite with floor-to-ceiling cathedral windows, fourteen-foot ceilings with crown molding, and wood floors. This ensuite encompasses an enormous walk-in closet with wood shelving. The spa-like bathroom boasts a crystal chandelier, a hand-crafted copper soaking tub, a heated Toto toilet, a large walk-in marble shower with marble tiled wainscotting, and a double sink vanity. After leaving the primary suite, you will pass through double French doors into the remaining third floor containing two bedrooms and another new marble bath with an oversized walk-in shower and heated Toto toilet.
This home boasts four new, top of the line HVAC systems, a new 50-year rubber roof, two separate walk-in basements with tons of storage room, and an ELEVATOR that travels from the basement to the rooftop and GARAGE parking for 2 cars. This home is truly special and will delight even the most discerning buyer.
Please note that we just had the interior of the home painted a soft white palette. It's spectacular.
