This magnificent estate originated in 2005 with a 20-room stone country home and was later combined with another property to create an exceptionally private Round Hill compound unlike any other in town.
Pleached linden trees bring romance to the Belgian block driveway and courtyard leading to the Main house. A gracious center hall spans 30-feet across and opens by French doors to a scenic view of the terrace, infinity-edge pool, a pool house and a Mustique-inspired pool pavilion. The backyard extends to an idyllic fruit orchard - peach, pear, Japanese plum, apples and apricots, and synthetic turf court adding tennis and ball sports to the fun of an indoor basketball/squash court. The house today stands on eight sweeping park-like acres filled with age-old trees, vineyards and stone walls.
Highly stylized interiors offer a genuine “home away from home” ambiance in every room. In perfect Georgian scale, a step-down living room offers a lovely fireplace, 12’ ceiling and French doors to a private porch and verandah. The formal dining room, replete with a wood-burning fireplace, exotic upholstered-walls and classical millwork comfortably seats 40 guests elegantly arranged. Library has a wet bar, custom oak-panel bookcases and a fireplace for private conversation. Adirondack-inspired great room/family room is a natural gathering spot featuring a two-story stone fireplace and a stag-horn chandelier; it opens to a light-filled breakfast room and gourmet kitchen with Viking, Sub-Zero and Miele brand chef appliances plus a brick pizza oven. Flow and function continue in an outfitted butler’s pantry, kitchen-office, mudroom, four-car heated garage and elevator servicing all levels of the home. Reminiscent of a five-star resort hotel and spa carries into the bedrooms on the upper floor. The primary suite has three exposure window and terrace views; luxurious bedroom with a fireplace; custom spa bathroom with two dressing rooms to include one outfitted with a fireplace and commercial conveyor belt to rotate a wardrobe both seasonally and by color. Terrace doors and private bathrooms compliment three customized bedrooms for family while a double bedroom and a single bedroom with full bath combine into an ideal guest wing. Another bedrooms and staff room offer more privacy on the lower level. Fabulous family room with fireplace, gym, home theater, wine cellar, sauna/bathroom and a massage room complete with cascading waterfall complete the walk-out garden lower level of the house. Guest House: Hospitality for guests or extended family in a wonderfully updated in 2014 Colonial home with office/conference facilities blending period millwork with fiber optics and wiring for international trade. The house offers a lovely living room with a fireplace, formal dining room, library/fireplace, gourmet kitchen, terrace plus four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Separate gated entry, 3-car detached garage with studio above and close by a vinification-building for a private reserve of Cabernet Savignon wine produced from grapes harvested on-site.
