Classy Cheshire impresses inside and out
Classic columns support the Cheshire's grand entry portico, creating an elegant first impression in keeping with this large estate-quality home. Brick and stucco combine with multipaned windows to give it a Tudor flavor.
Inside, the home is equally stately. The ceiling in the patrician entry and richly glassed octagonal living room is two stories high. A second floor bridge divides the two environments while leaving the illusion that the living room and entry are one huge room. A polished wooden balustrade, on the left, sweeps up to the second floor.
The luxurious master suite is an adult retreat, well-isolated from family activities. Amenities include a bayed sitting area, enormous walk-in closet, sumptuous spa tub, oversized shower, two vanities and access to the expansive patio. A door could be added between the study and the master bedroom.
Kitchen and family room are bright and open, with only an eating bar separating them. The spacious kitchen has every convenience. Utilities are but a few steps away, accessible from the three-car garage as well. In the family room, vaulting adds drama to the two-story-high skylit ceiling. Still more light streams in through stacked windows that flank the fireplace.
Second floor rooms in the Cheshire are equally generous in size. They include a library/loft that overlooks the entry, three bedrooms (one with walk-in closet and private bathroom), a dual-compartment bathroom, a balcony open to the family room, and an L-shaped bonus room.
