Sumptuous and expansive brick and slate residence (6047 sq ft) sited on a ¾ acre garden lot in Richmond's foremost residential neighborhood: Richly detailed millwork, 9-10 ft ceilings, and classical architectural elements complement spectacularly proportioned formal rooms and library with fireplace. A recent addition includes a gleaming granite and stainless eat-in kitchen with coffered ceiling and “professional” appliances opening into a spacious family room with new half-bath. An oversized sunroom overlooks mature gardens, and a lower level chestnut-paneled “retreat” with fireplace and bar provides a playroom or additional family space. 5 bedrooms/5 full and 2 half-baths include master suite with updated bath, and 1st floor bedroom suite. Original landscape design by Charles Gillette incorporates lush plantings of massed flowering shrubbery, sweeping bluestone and slate terraces with covered dining, brick/slate Gillette garden house, and a private walled and gated salt water pool. Generous off-street parking in front and rear. Security/irrigation systems and updated mechanicals.
