After an exhaustive search, John and Betty Stanfill selected this secluded parcel on which to build their dream home within the palette of Robert AM Stern’s east coast residences. Working with Craig Stoddard, they realized their vision in gorgeous shingle detail in this private arboreal setting. The high standard of craftsmanship and materials is rare. The Owner of the Swaner Hardwood was on site hand selecting the knotty black walnut plank floors that could be used from the several stacks delivered to the site. All this to say… welcome to the uncommonly well-built four bedroom and five bath Stanfill Residence.
A tall Dutch door welcomes you inside to the large formal entry with its high copper shrouded barrel ceiling. The formal living room is the thesis – elegance that is inviting and meant to be a pleasure to actually live within. The large dining room is formal and inviting as well.
The oversized kitchen with custom cabinetry, high end appliances, and granite counters enjoys a walk-in pantry and its own breakfast room, as well as opening to a grand family room with a detailed wet bar and large glass doors overlooking the rear grounds. This main floor has a large bedroom suite with its own full bath. Up the wide stairs with its massive custom window are three bedroom suites, an office/library, and lots of extra storage space. The master is a true retreat with a large master bedroom with a high ceiling, walk-in closet, its own private balcony, and a gorgeous master bath with Carrara counters, a glass shower, and a luxurious soaking tub.
The front and rear grounds are beautifully designed with mature trees, pampered gardens, covered outdoor entertaining areas and even an outdoor BBQ kitchen with high end appliances and bar. Just a few of the features include: three central air and heating systems, extra wide hallways, skylights for added natural light, custom yard lighting and water feature, a private automatic gate, an oversized attached garage, as well as the award-winning schools of this neighborhood.
