It was while serving in the Air Corps during WWI that William Brand Beard met his wife, Victoria, in Scotland. After returning stateside and having a family of their own, they decided to build their dream home here in the style they fell in love with while touring the English countryside – pitched gables, exposed brick and mortar, delicate lead glass windows and rough hewn beams. Fortunately, the current Owner’s have been vigilant in their preservation of that original character while tastefully updating it as well. The new kitchen is their masterpiece with hand crafted period true cabinetry, custom stainless counter tops with tile backsplash, and high end stainless appliances. They have loved their tenure here and hope the same for a very fortunate Buyer.
As it true of quality architecture, the design is both beautiful and functional. The large four bedroom and three bath floor plan of over 3,300sf radiates from the formal entry in a very logical manner with three bedrooms and two baths upstairs, a guest suite downstairs, and a family room just off the kitchen and overlooking the rear yard. The master bedroom is a true master suite with its own walk-in closet and a large master bath. Both the living and dining rooms are formal with hardwood floors, original casement windows, and wood beamed ceilings. There are gorgeous original fireplaces in both the living room and the den/home office.
Both the front and rear yards have mature trees and pampered gardens. The rear grounds afford outdoor entertaining in a peaceful setting under mature oaks with a pool and spa. There are also some details worth mentioning: three zone central air and heating, the separate laundry room, so much original wood moldings and trim, a detached two car garage with studio, and close proximity to the Oakmont Country Club.
