Highlights of the home include five bedrooms, four full bathrooms and two half bathrooms, two dens, an elevator that stops on every floor, beautifully landscaped backyard patio and roof deck, eight gas fireplaces with carved ornamental mantels, exquisite plaster and millwork, and a two car tandem garage. All finishes, appointments, and details are of the finest quality and design, from the flooring, moldings, lighting, hardware, window treatments and beyond.
