A complete top to bottom renovation of this gracious house, completed in 2008, combines beauty and practicality with exquisite finishes and modern conveniences.

Highlights include 9'-11' ceilings on the first and second floors, a Niles audio system with speakers in most rooms; radiant heat in the kitchen, breakfast room and all baths; an elevator accessing all four floors; three wood-burning fireplaces and custom millwork throughout. A custom mahogany front door with leaded fan and side lights, opens to the lovely foyer with French limestone floor and Venetian plaster walls. A wood-burning fireplace warms the living room; the elegant dining room features bay windows and a tray ceiling. The professionally designed, custom kitchen is a cook's paradise with quarter-sawn white oak cabinetry, distinctive Rocky Mountain hardware, Antique Brown granite countertops, second prep sink, island seating and a radiant heated French limestone floor. The top-of-the-line appliances include a Wolf six-burner gas cooktop, warming oven, Dacor double conventional/convection ovens and Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezer.
