24 The Grasslands - Woodbury, New York
Woodbury. Enjoy resort-like living year-round in this bright and spacious five-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath Colonial ensconced on a gorgeous cul-de-sac property in the scenic and guard/gated community of Hunters Run. Carved out of pristine woodland abutting Stillwell Woods Nature Preserve, this sprawling enclave of mini estates provides a sense of seclusion yet is ideally located near shopping, restaurants, golf, boating, parks, train station, and major highways, putting it within a comfortable commute to Manhattan. Exquisitely landscaped with towering trees, specimen plantings, and emerald lawns, this inviting home welcomes you with a crushed-stone driveway, with ample parking for guests, a wide winding front walk, and a covered entry. Beyond privacy fencing, a veritable Shangri La rear property awaits to enthrall and invite all who enter to escape their worldly cares. With the appearance of a babbling brook emerging from a romantic forest, a waterfall splashes into a large Koi pond providing the perfect backdrop to the entertainment area. This includes a magnificent heated Gunite pool and spa enfolded by a spacious paving-stone patio with outdoor kitchen with grill, and an expansive multi-level deck leading up to a charming pergola-topped al fresco dining area off the kitchen. The home’s interior also lends itself to entertaining with an open concept floor plan boasting spacious, sun-swept rooms, vaulted ceilings, crown moldings, and a full finished basement with immense entertainment room, laundry, and cedar closet. A two-story, sky-lit foyer with ceramic tile floors, powder room, and guest closet, opens to all principal rooms and a staircase winding down to the basement and up a circular tower to the second-floor. The vaulted living room is flooded with sunlight through windows and several skylights. The banquet-sized formal dining room, with wainscoting, crown molding, and bow window, is ideal for gracious dinner parties. The bright and cheerful custom country kitchen is a cook’s dream, featuring granite and maple cabinetry with center island, high-end appliances, including a Viking gas cooktop, and porcelain floors that flow into the breakfast area where sliding glass doors open to the deck. The adjoining family room offers ample space for relaxing with a wall of tall casement windows overlooking the breathtaking rear property and windows on a second wall flanking a large custom-tiled gas fireplace. Ideal for entertaining, this area is open to the living room. Off the kitchen, a hall accesses the attached three-car garage and a striking study/guest suite with full bath, stacked-stone wall, and sliding-glass doors to the rear deck. On the second floor, a large loft overlooking the foyer leads to three bedrooms, a hall bath with Carrera marble twin sinks, and a bright and airy master suite with cathedral-ceiling bedroom that offers a wall of windows overlooking the rear property, two walk-in closets, and a stunning and spacious, sky-lit master bath with deluxe frameless-glass shower, free-standing tub, and generous twin vanity with Carrera-marble countertop and vessel sinks. There is also a den/media room with cathedral ceilings that complete this floor. Lovingly maintained and beautifully updated, this enchanting home, in an ideal location, will make you feel like you are on vacation all year long.
