Rarely does an extraordinary residence as this come along that blends refined historic elements & aesthetics with a modern layout & amenities. 538 Sugartown combines the advantages of both a classic gem & a new house, and has a wonderful story. The original wing was fully custom-built by a New York tycoon with top materials that are hardly used today. Distinctive features reflecting its traditional elegance are stone piers & walls, a front courtyard & garden, slate roof, high wood-beamed ceilings, and billiard room with antique oak doors, hardwood cabinets & gas fireplace. A total renovation of the house yielded a new wing as well, built in 2006 by a famous TV host. This addition provides all the contemporary conveniences today's family desires, such as an open family room with coffered ceilings & fireplace for relaxing nights, a spacious master suite with a large sitting room, his/her closets & a balcony for watching stunning sunrises, master spa bath with a jetted tub & shower, his & her studies with picturesque views & a hidden wine cellar, a generous deck & screen room for dining, reading & enjoying nature, and a sunny open finished walkout basement with a recreation/playroom, media room, wet bar & full bath. Current owners have made extensive updates since 2012 including a new driveway entrance with real stone piers & walls, new garden by an award-winning designer with a new patio, plants & drainage system, new golf putting range & Tee box for practicing your swing, new wine cellar for your favorite vintages, new high-efficiency boiler & a complete repainting of the interior/exterior. The expansiveness felt the moment you enter the gracious foyer is enhanced by tall airy ceilings & rich wood floors. Abundant oversized windows bring the outdoors in, show gorgeous views & invite in brilliant light throughout. Formal living & dining rooms, a sunroom overlooking scenic gardens, den with a stone wood-burning fireplace, custom wet bar & patio doors, and a seamless flow between the kitchen, family room, breakfast room & outdoor spaces provide a perfect backdrop for entertaining. This home is in a class of its own, made for large families with 5 well-sized bedrooms (including 2 master suites), 4.5 baths (2 with jetted tubs), laundry, 4-zone HVAC & more. Set far back on a large lot & hidden from the road for incredible tranquility & privacy, with a variety of plants, flowers, birds & wildlife; yet convenient to top schools & local amenities!
