40 Percheron Ln - Roslyn Heights, New York
Roslyn Heights. Enjoy life to the fullest in this magnificent 2012, five-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath, brick, French Country Colonial, nestled on nearly a half-acre in the beautiful, and ideally located, Country Club Section of Roslyn Heights. Exquisite detailing, including a Normandy turret, arched windows, and iron-filigree accents, combine with gorgeous landscaping to create a magical street presence. Designed for entertaining no-matter the season or reason, this special home offers a bright and airy interior with high ceilings, great flow, a first-floor guest suite, gourmet kitchen, and finished basement with home theater. And its rear property is a resort-like summer paradise with oversized salt-water pool, cabana, and so much more. Less than a half-mile from train station and freeway, this fabulous residence is about 40 minutes to Manhattan and is convenient to golf, schools, premier shopping, award-winning hospitals, dining, estate museums, beaches, boating, and equestrian trails. Secluded behind a lush wall of foliage and estate fencing, is an entertainer’s dream. Emerald lawns and lovely plantings enfold a sprawling, inground, salt-water infinity pool with a large infinity spa and waterfall. Here you can relax with friends and watch a huge television nearby with an all-weather cover. Beside the pool’s paving-stone patio, a spacious pavilion, with vaulted Mansard roof and travertine floors, includes a large pub-like wet bar with ample seating and television, a delightful conversation area, and an attached cabana with powder room, dressing room, and outside shower. Along the rear of the house, another entertainment area includes an outdoor kitchen with gas grill, stovetop, and beverage cooler, plus a large paving-stone patio with ample room for al fresco dining. An adjoining veranda, offering a shady retreat with gas fireplace, television, and ceiling fan, enters the house through double atrium doors. The home’s interior is a delightful eclectic marriage of classical and contemporary elements creating a traditional elegance transitioning into a serene ambiance for today’s living. Radiant heated, inlaid porcelain floors flow from the entrance foyer, with its walk-in closet, powder room, and spiral staircase, into a side gallery and the kitchen. Entered off the gallery, is the tranquil two-story living room. Here, sunlight pouring through a soaring wall off windows, dances across gleaming chevron inlaid-oak floors, an ornate coffered ceiling, and a wall of custom built-in cabinetry. Across the gallery, the stunning formal dining room, with its large bay window and boiserie-adorned tray ceiling, creates a lovely setting for fine dining. The elegant eat-in kitchen is perfect for entertaining with custom, granite-topped cherry cabinetry that resembles fine furniture. It includes a planning center, a sunny breakfast area, and a large center island with new microwave, two refrigerated drawers, and ample seating area. Additional appliances include a brand new stainless-steel refrigerator/freezer, a professional-grade gas stove with six burners, grill, and two ovens, and an integrated dishwasher. Virtually the hub of the house, this fantastic space is open to the living room (near doors to the patio), the dining room, the gallery, and is open to the den - a sunny retreat with gas fireplace and over-mantle television. The gallery extends past the living room providing access to the attached two-car garage; coat closet; side entrance; and a first-floor master/guest suite with designer bath en suite. On the second floor, the palatial and luxurious master suite boasts a romantic gas fireplace, a backlit tray ceiling, two walk-in closets, and a lavish marble master bath with soaking jetted tub, a steam shower with multiple showerheads, a twin vanity, and heated floors and towel rack. Across a bridge overlooking the living room and foyer, there are a lovely bedroom with marble bath en suite; a laundry center; and two bedrooms sharing a Jack-and-Jill bath. All bedrooms have tray ceilings and ample closets. The full finished basement provides more entertainment venues including a luxury home theater, a huge playroom, and a game room plus access to the pool area. Life doesn’t get much better than in this spectacular, better-than-new home with a country-club backyard and in a beautiful, established neighborhood close to just about everything.
