Hidden away on a quiet street in prestigious Ascot Heath, this fully renovated home evokes a sense of tranquil privacy. The carefully planned park-like setting offers a serene retreat while exquisite craftsmanship and incredible attention to detail define the luxurious interior. From the grand entry to the welcoming living room to the opulent master suite with fireplace, no detail has been overlooked. Scraped hardwoods, travertine tile, incredible millwork, and soothing paint are equally at home with quiet evenings or larger gatherings. Your public living spaces are centrally situated, offering multiple gathering areas that flow naturally into one another. A well-equipped bar and a 900-bottle wine room make entertaining a breeze. Your study and luxurious master suite are on the main floor, with a game room and four secondary bedrooms upstairs. Every bedroom has a private ensuite, creating comfortable spaces for relaxation. This house impresses both inside and out! Your PebbleTec pool sparkles in the center of your yard, with incredible boulder hardscaping that forms a wall of water along the back. A heated spa sits at the end of your pool, with a cedar dry sauna just steps away. There is also a charming pergola and 250 linear feet of raised and irrigated garden beds ready for planting. Fully renovated inside and out, upgrades include a spectacular master bath, all new exterior windows and doors, the main water line and entire irrigation system, pool resurfacing and equipment, and an oversized 3-car garage with new epoxy floors and fresh paint. With beautiful details and careful craftsmanship, this amazing home is move-in ready.
As impressive as the exterior of this home is, stepping inside this home will cause your breath to catch as you take in the grand entry. Hardwood floors gleam underfoot while 30-foot ceilings soar overhead. Gorgeous millwork surrounds you on every side and the stair draws your eye upward to an open hall that surrounds the foyer. Heavy crown molding frames the ceiling and highlights three dormer windows that spill warm sunlight into this entry. To your left a beautifully cased opening frames your dining room. This is echoed on your right, where your study and master bedroom lie. Directly ahead, past your hardwood stair, stunning millwork frames the entrance to your living room. Upstairs this is repeated in the entrance to your game room for a pleasing symmetry. Rich detail and beautiful finishes everywhere set this home apart and make you want to explore further.
Stunning millwork marks the entrance to the living room and hints at the detail and finishes inside. Beautiful woodwork lines the walls, extending to the gorgeous coffered ceiling. The lines of crown molding are echoed in the formal mantel that frames the fireplace, with columns on either side adding to the elegance. Windows on both sides of the fireplace showcase views of your backyard oasis while a glass door opens to the spacious screened porch. Adjacent to the living room you will find your 900-bottle, temperature-controlled wine room. Rich wood shelving with slats for stemware and a serving area make this room both functional and beautiful.
Your home’s large bar, which is open to the living room, is beautifully finished with granite counters and stainless sink. Ample cabinetry offers loads of storage. A window to the screened porch doubles as a pass-through, making it easy to serve guests in multiple locations.
Your bar also serves as a connection between your living room and your kitchen with its breakfast area. Your breakfast room is at the back of your home, with cabinetry on either side that offers storage and counter space for serving. A lovely linear chandelier defines your table. Along the back wall, doors open to your screened porch for fresh outdoor breezes. This porch is wonderfully finished with a beadboard ceiling, two ceiling fans, and multiple windows that frame your back yard. This is the perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee and birdsong or listen to the rain on quiet evenings.
Moving toward the front of your home, a peninsula island provides casual seating while marking the boundary of your large kitchen. Granite tops the counters as well as two center islands, one of which has a prep sink so that there is space for helpers at dinner time. Stainless Viking appliances include a 5-burner gas stove and double wall ovens as well as a large refrigerator. Crown molding frames the room with elegance and a front window splashes natural light into this hard-working space. Nearby, the walk-in pantry has jamb-switch lighting and plenty of shelving to keep ingredients organized.
A thoughtful butler’s pantry connects your kitchen to your dining room, offering a long counter for serving dishes and glass cabinetry to show off display pieces. Double doors open to your dining room, an elegant and spacious room with wood floors and lovely natural light. The ceiling is a clear focal point with both crown and picture frame moldings drawing your eye upward, where beautiful millwork creates a center feature that highlights your chandelier. One side of the dining room is open to the entry while the opposite wall offers a large recess for a buffet or hutch. Your place settings will sparkle in the light that splashes in from the front window.
Across the entry from your dining room, a cased opening frames the landing between your study and your master bedroom. French doors open to your study, revealing a spacious room with wood floors and a large bay window dressed in plantation shutters. A wall of cabinetry includes a built-in desk, and upper shelves continue along the adjacent wall above the French doors, adding interest and offering extra storage or display space. The room’s generous proportions are easily large enough to include a center table and some comfortable arm chairs for relaxing.
Just past the study, another set of French doors open to your stunning master bedroom. Scraped hardwood floors continue into this luxurious space, where a ceiling beam creates definition between your tranquil sleeping area and a beautiful 300 square foot sitting room. The crackle of a wood-burning fire warms your winter evenings as you relax with your favorite beverage. Or, if you prefer, French doors provide private access to your pool, spa, and sauna for outdoor relaxation. When you’re ready, head into your gorgeous spa-inspired master bath. Fully renovated, this room features large-format travertine tile with rich chocolate marble accents. Travertine wall tile surrounds the enormous walk-in shower with a rain shower head and frameless glass that adds to the open, airy feel. Near the front window, a striking cast stone soaking tub beckons you to soothe away your day. Creamy cabinetry adorns both vanities, one of which includes extra space for a makeup area. Nearby a huge master closet keeps you organized with three stacks of drawers and loads of open shelving and hanging space. An additional walk-in closet is located in the master bedroom.
At the other end of your home, double doors from your breakfast area open to an enormous space that functions as both a laundry room and mud room. A long marble bench along one wall has cubbies below and numerous hooks above to corral items as you come through the door, while a center island acts as a staging area. On the opposite wall, the marble is repeated in the counter space above your washer and dryer and is flanked by a large utility sink and a full size stainless refrigerator. From this room a front door opens to a charming patio large enough for a table and chairs, where you can admire your beautiful front yard in the afternoon shade.
Back in the laundry room, a second door opens to your oversized three-car garage. Freshly painted and with a new epoxy floor, this space also boasts a long workbench with cabinetry above and below to keep you organized and clutter-free. There is even a large lockable storage closet for larger items. Side windows and glass in the three bay doors keep the garage bright, while tall ceilings add to the roomy proportions.
Gorgeous scraped hardwoods continue up the stairs to form a hall that is open to the grand entry. Light spills in from front windows and a balcony rail maintains the open, airy feel. From this vantage point you can clearly appreciate the beautiful moldings, soaring ceilings, and gorgeous details that set this home apart. Two bedrooms lie on either side of the second floor, with your game room centrally situated.
French doors open to your game room, where rich-toned hardwood floors gleam in the sunlight pouring through windows on either side of crisp white cabinetry. Generous proportions and a 10-foot ceiling offer plenty of space for any activity you choose. Beautiful moldings and millwork complete this welcoming space.
Both back bedrooms, one on either side of the game room, are large and inviting. Soft carpet and crown molding create a comfortable space, while glass doors stream natural light and offer access to private balconies overlooking your pool and yard. Each bedroom has a private ensuite, one of which also has hall access for upstairs guests.
The front bedrooms are also generously sized, with bright bay windows creating additional floor space. Plantation shutters and crown molding offer a polished finish, and each room has its own ensuite.
Beside the game room, a linen closet could easily be converted to an attic stair leading to a third floor, where an additional 1200-1500 square feet could easily be developed should you choose to do so.
Set on the highest point on the lot, this home has a wonderful presence. Warm brick is accented with cast stone to create a stunning façade. Mature trees, thoughtful landscaping, and a circle drive lined with brick create the perfect setting. From the drive, several steps lead to your front door, framed in a tall arch of cast stone. Light glows through numerous windows, offering a warm welcome, and there is even a charming front patio where a bistro table creates a quiet spot to enjoy your front yard views.
Lush landscaping continues around your home to the back yard. Wrought iron fencing fully encloses your yard while maintaining an open feel. Plantings along the sides create privacy, while the green space behind your yard adds to the natural beauty. Patios are finished in stamped and stained concrete, with pavers creating pathways that invite you to wander from feature to feature in this gorgeous yard. Your sparkling PebbleTec pool is centrally placed, with a raised patio for lounge chairs at one end and your heated spa at the other. Stunning boulder hardscaping along the back transforms into an extensive waterfall, adding beautiful sound to this private oasis. Adjacent to your spa, a cedar dry sauna beckons, offering warm relaxation. From here a pathway leads to a charming pergola beside open lawn. Magnolias and other trees surround the lawn to create privacy. At the other end of your yard, specimen boxes highlight a variety of beautiful trees, including weeping Norwegian spruce and Japanese maples. These stand above 250 linear feet of raised garden boxes, ready for your favorite vegetables and herbs. All garden boxes, like the rest of the yard, are fully irrigated for easy maintenance. Thoughtful landscaping and stunning hardscapes combine to create a one-of-a-kind retreat that will make it difficult to stay indoors at this incredible Rowley Mile home.
