This is a sprawling house with some really nice touches, such as a bluestone courtyard, a paneled library, a "reading tower," media room with a skimpy TV, and a master suite with its own laundry room. It's big, 7000sf, with six bedrooms and 5.5 baths. We're not crazy about attached garages—too suburban McMansiony—so we think the three-bay model spoils the façade, but it's probably a minor quibble. There is extensive landscaping on the four-acre plot, with of course a gunite pool. Price is ambitious for the area, we think.
