9 Merrymeeting Ln
Standing majestically on five acres of park-like grounds in the delightful village of Lloyd Harbor, this magnificent Colonial residence is approached by a circular driveway bordered by beautifully landscaped property with manicured lawns and towering trees. To the rear of the house stretches a covered terrace that overlooks the property and offers a beautiful setting for outdoor entertaining. The interior is beautifully appointed and boasts marble fireplaces, coffered ceilings and gleaming hardwood floors. Incredible attention to detail evokes a sense of glamor and opulent lifestyle. The home offers 17 rooms each offering a distinct character and flair. The estate’s three-car garage includes an attached two-story guest house featuring a spacious living area, kitchen, bedroom, bath and balcony. Entered through a columned portico, guests are welcomed into the stunning entry hall; a soaring two-story entrance with barrel-vaulted ceiling and impressive bridal staircase accented with mahogany balusters and carved newel posts. Polished marble floors are set underneath crystal chandeliers and reflect sunlight from the Palladian window overhead. Arched doorways are detailed with 18-carat gold and lead to the principal rooms. The living room is elegantly designed with bay windows offering vistas of the front garden, wood parquet floors, gas fireplace with marble hearth and walls embellished with decorative trim. The inviting den has a cozy country club ambiance with mahogany built-ins, wood-burning fireplace and wet bar with marble counter. Exposures on three sides provide a natural light that adds to its appeal and French doors lead to the rear terrace. The study serves as a convivial office with custom-built bookcases, dark cherry molding and French doors that open to the terrace. On the opposite side of the entry hall is the formal dining room. Generously proportioned, this room is exquisitely trimmed in ornamental molding making it the perfect area for gracious entertaining. The kitchen is a bright and congenial chef’s delight, featuring marble floors, cherry wood cabinetry, expansive center island and granite countertops. All appliances are top-of-the-line including a Subzero refrigerator/freezer, professional six-burner cook top, double sinks, dual oven, wine cooler and warming drawer. Open to the kitchen is the breakfast room with granite topped cherry wood table, perfect for an informal meal. Off the kitchen is the parlor, which serves as a cozy sitting room. Permeated with subtle natural light, the parlor features a marble fireplace, oak floors and access to the garden. A few steps down from the kitchen is the family room/playroom with brick fireplace, bath and access to the brick patio. This room leads to an expansive finished basement, which includes an all-purpose playroom, gym and spacious storage area. On the second floor, the palatial master suite provides a luxurious retreat offering a serene master bedroom, his & her baths, two dressing rooms, fireplace and a private balcony overlooking the grounds. This private wing boasts superior woodwork and fine accoutrements throughout. The lady’s bath has a spa-like ambiance with a whirlpool tub and exquisite detailing. The master bath features a large marble shower and marble vanity. The dressing rooms both offer customized built-in closets with plenty of space for storage and organization. The second-floor landing, characterized by a coffered ceiling, Palladian windows and lovely vistas of the great hall and grounds, separates the master suite from the rest of the bedrooms. The guest suite is well-appointed with a private sitting area and en-suite bath. Five additional charming bedrooms offer their own distinct flair and design, all with custom closets. A second floor laundry room and numerous closets provide additional storage and functionality.
