With custom cabinetry on three sides, there's room for multiple cooks at the soapstone counters, deep porcelain farm sink and stainless steel appliances, including Sub-Zero, Wolf range and Miele washer/dryer. Natural light abounds in all the bedrooms, and each is equipped with electric sunscreen shades that are controlled remotely. One bedroom has a lofted platform for sleeping, allowing for ample work space beneath. A third bedroom, originally a formal dining room, has two exposures. A former staff room can serve as a fourth bedroom or home office. Custom closets, built-in bookcases and shelving have been added to maximize storage. The primary bathroom is windowed and outfitted with a designer sink stand with shelf for toiletries. New floors complete the picture.
