An elegant stone drive guides you toward this beautiful brick Georgian manor. Before you even step through the front door, you can imagine yourself sipping coffee from one of the many balconies, while taking in a sunrise. Then again, skirt the exterior of the home and you will discover a backyard oasis. The brick patio, fire pit, secret garden, inground pool and pool house seem to call your name. Don’t halt your exploration here, though. Inside, uncover a glorious kitchen and eating area, lined with wonderful windows that fill the space with natural light. Make your way to the den, which features a full bar and is surrounded by French doors and walls of Palladian windows. Move onto the walkout lower level, which boasts an all-new kitchen and full bar. Best yet, the main-level master wing, with dual baths and closets, plus a spiral staircase to the mirrored gym, will have you swooning.
