An additional 1,500 SF finished basement has 96 ceilings with limestone flooring and double sided stone fireplace. A stunning wine cellar beckons one to sit and appreciate the ambiance. Each room is an experience. Radiant floor heat through the kitchen, with panoramic water views from the dining turret. Dramatic details combine antique and contemporary style. Enjoy the benefit of being securely elevated and above street level while watching the daytime activities along the roads below. Sunrise views are striking. Nighttime vision is picturesque with the neighboring estates lighting features reflecting off Gorhams Pond. This home is purely awe inspiring. Agent related.
