Beautiful, exquisitely detailed property with a spectacular long view across the first green of Hobbits Glen Golf Course. For more than three decades the owners have polished and groomed this home. All windows have been replaced, and doors and facings have been replaced with hand-finished upgrades, and solid core six-panel doors. The home opens in the back to extensive flagstone patios, gardens, and the golf course view. Natural materials are used throughout, and the aristocratic Italian taste of the owners has nourished a richly elegant and comfortable atmosphere. The large home supplies four gathering spaces for family and guest recreation and conversation. Two of the four upper level bedrooms are now furnished as studies or offices. A stone walk leads from street to hospitable covered entry and the magnificent heavy detailed front door. The foyer affords a light-filled look through to the beautifully landscaped yard and golf course. The updated "cook's kitchen" has granite counter tops, a five burner cook top, a conventional/convection wall oven, a pantry, and features a pass-over bar to the breakfast room. The dining room is worthy of "state dinners" but has more often served 12-18 friends and family folk. It features 3 deep windows, all dressed in lovely draperies. After dinner conversation can move to the Library where there is a view to the golf course, beautiful fireplace, and a cozy space. The Living Room is large, with a high cathedral ceiling faced in wood, clerestory windows shedding light and a window wall looking to the back yard and golf course. A short flight up to the four bedrooms, and a short flight down to the fifth bedroom and beautiful billiard room, with yet another walkout to a stone patio and the back yard. The billiard table will convey with the home. A key condition for this purchase is that the seller wishes to remain the occupant of the property until December 31, 2021. The preferred situation would be to sell and settle the property in October 2021, and have the transfer of occupancy occur at the end of the year.
