Georgian peach has a distinctly English flavor
Updated 11:38 pm, Tuesday, April 28, 2015
Grandeur meets elegance on the corner of Luke's Wood and Ogden roads in this stately Georgian Colonial.
The regal brick home is on a meticulously landscaped 5.33 acres and includes an expansive tiered stone terrace with a custom heated pool.
Borrowing English design standards, the home is well-suited with a circular drive, covered entry and traditional English moss that gently creeps along the front exterior.
Inside, a marble foyer offers a grand entrance with a sweeping staircase and enough space to easily function as a gathering hall when entertaining guests.
With more than 7,000 square feet of living space, the home features seven fireplaces, six bedrooms and six full baths.

The first floor of the home hass millwork and unexpected details, including interior transom windows above each of the door casings and herringbone floors in the dining and living rooms. Seemingly designed for entertaining, the floor plan offers an easy flow with oversized rooms and high ceilings throughout.
The formal living room and formal dining room feature wood burning fireplaces, classic paneling and walnut inlays in the flooring.
A handsome pine paneled library features all of the classic elements of a traditional study: a wood burning fireplace, a marble wet bar, coffered ceiling and built-ins.
The first floor features two powder rooms, one just off the entry hall and one just inside the mudroom entrance.
An expansive country kitchen features two front apron farmhouse sinks, pretty glass cabinetry and two built-in corner cabinets that add rustic charm. Appliances include two SubZero refrigerators and freezers, two dishwashers, a four-burner Viking range with a custom copper hood. At more than 10 feet, the center island offers plenty of prep space and room for everyday seating.
Just off the kitchen is a sunny breakfast room with French doors accessing the terrace that flows into a cozy family room with a floor to ceiling stone fireplace.
On one side of the family room, French doors access the terrace and on the other, lead to the screened-in porch. With three walls of windows, a flagstone floor and wainscotted ceiling, the three-season solarium is enjoyed during warmer months offering a great entertaining space or for even a quiet after-dinner retreat.
A private master suite wing features his-and-hers master closets, a wood-burning fireplace and an oversized master en suite with a steam shower, a dual vanity and sunken Jacuzzi.
The second floor includes five en suite guest bedrooms in addition to the master and each includes plenty of storage space.
The largest guest bedroom, located at the top of the second floor landing, can easily be turned into a second-floor family room as it was by previous owners.
A fully finished lower level offers an additional 1,800 square feet of space that can lend itself for use as a game room or billiards room, lower family room with its own brick fireplace or a playroom.
The third level, though unfinished, can easily be reconfigured to meet the needs of new owners or left alone to be used for storage.
