A custom copper sink, two dishwashers, top-rated appliances and a massive granite center island fill out the space in beautiful fashion.

When guests arrive in the evening, serve up cocktails at the main-level antique wet bar (a customized piece with a copper top) or grab a vintage from the wine cellar. However you while away the day, it’s the unseen amenities of this home, from the newer roof to the climate-controlled five-car garage, that truly make it stand apart.
