The exterior design of this Neoclassical/Georgian home was inspired by a faculty house on The Lawn at University of Virginia. It includes two story ionic columns, a limestone portico and classical cornice. The interior has similar architectural detailing including custom cherry baseboards and window trim, three piece crown moldings, two antique mantels and a cherry paneled wall hiding the entertainment center.
Overlooking the third green of the north golf course, this house has the best location in New Albany: halfway between New Albany Country Club and Market Street, and walking distance to both. It is also located across the street from the most popular walking/biking loop in the Country Club Community.
The kitchen features a large Palladian window, a large bow window, and three clerestory windows admitting extraordinary light into the room. Custom cherry cabinetry extends to the ceiling. New white quartz countertops and subway tiles complement the center island with a built in grill, downdraft and Wolf gas stovetop. An office and laundry room are adjacent to the kitchen.
The kitchen opens nicely into the two story family room which includes a cherry paneled wall, marble fireplace surround, a large second floor library with balcony, 3 large windows on the first floor, 3 round windows on the second floor and a door to the exterior courtyard.
The large octagonal dining room includes a built in corner cupboard, an antique mantel from a home in England, and accommodates a table for 12.
Owners have meticulously maintained this home, please see attached list of updates.
The large living room is great for entertaining and has another antique mantel, french doors and windows on 3 sides of the house. The kitchen, dining room and living room all open to a large brick-walled, slate terrace.
There are hardwood floors which have recently been refinished and 11 foot ceilings throughout the first floor.
The second floor features 3 en suite bedrooms which are nicely separated for privacy. Two of the bathrooms were recently updated with Carrera marble. The third has an Italian stone floor and countertop. Architectural plans are available for a new master suite which could be added off the family room balcony.
The lower level includes a media room with wet bar, a full bathroom (new) with Carrera marble, a 4th bedroom, an exercise room (currently used as a 5th bedroom) and storage.
