Situated on a private cul-de-sac, the contour and topography of the lot presented both challenge and opportunity.
The location offers privacy and seclusion, with a flat pad at the front yard and a descending slope at the rear. By developing a two-story residence above a half-basement (one that opens to the yard at the rear), the architect accomplished stepping the house with the descending slope of the property.
The result is a home that takes advantage of the property, creating a pool and deck area over the slope of the rear yard creating a reward of views and tree top experience on all three floors of the home.
A 10,661 sq ft lot presents a 5,109 sq ft home built over two stories and a half basement, topped off with a detached two car garage.
A beautiful Cape Cod design by Cahill-Leese Architects and complimented by landscape improvements designed by Mark Tessier Landscape Architecture.
The home contains five bedrooms plus an office, five and one-half baths, a formal dining room, family room, kitchen with morning room and a recreation room/bar and wine cellar. The interiors, by Jill Wolff Interior Design, utilize fashion forward materials, fixtures and furnishings to compliment this classic architecture with contemporary specifications and feel.
