Sunlit and sophisticated this magnificent estate, designed by the famed architecture firm of Fisher & Fisher, was commissioned by Florence Kountze Best. Its present owners rescued it from demolition recognizing its historic relevance and lovingly restored it in 2008 with the utmost attention to detail. Rich in architectural design, the home now boasts Venetian plaster walls, hand forged railings and door hardware; 2.5” thick solid walnut doors; and reclaimed French kiln-dried & limestone floors. Additional features include restored original metal casement windows, 18th and 19th century hand forged iron entry doors in vestibule and two pairs of antique chestnut doors in entry, white oak reclaimed beams, 3 fireplaces on main level with Limestone surround, & full walnut bar in lower level with 2 fireplaces and brick from 19th century Wilfley Factory. The grounds feature nearly an acre of lush landscaping, brick walls, gated circular drive, pool, & multiple terraces for al fresco dining.
