    At the end of the long private driveway you will arrive at this imposing five bedroom TUSCAN VILLA which is reminiscent of the homes in Tuscany. The exterior walls, in shades of yellow ochre, and slate gray shutters frame the white wood French doors that surround the perimeter of the main level of this home. The exterior is accented with decorative ironwork on the Tuscan balconies and gates entering the courtyard, The Tuscan sun shines on the lovely Waterloo Gardens front landscape with a manicured hydrangea tree. Follow the formal hedge on the perimeter of the home and you will arrive at the stone terrace leading you down the formal stone staircase to the pond with a two tiered waterfall. Whatever the season may be you will see the serene property with autumn color, winter snow, or spring and summer gardens. Entering the antique wooden front double door, you will see the spacious interior with its high ceilings, arched door, gracious old world detail, five fireplaces, beamed ceilings, exquisite millwork and french doors instead of first floor windows. The spacious first floor rooms include a center hall, living room with a beamed ceiling and stone fireplace, a family room with stone fireplace. On the other side of the center hall you will enter a reception room. Note the alabaster sink by Sherle Wagner in the formal powder room, and a guest bedroom suite and bath. In the rear of the center hall you will enter a formal dining room with a stone fireplace and views of the outdoor terrace and gardens. Enter into the kitchen, which the owners enlarged into a gourmet cooking area, with custom Rutt Cabinetry, marble and granite countertops, and a custom tile floor, reminiscent of the Old World charming kitchens. A morning /breakfast room has views of the Tuscan courtyard, enclosed with wrought a iron gate and inviting seating and dining areas. A four car garage completes this level. Walk up the back staircase or the private courtyard entrance to arrive at a one bedroom apartment that is ideal for the Covid 19 living arrangements we face with need for more private space and working areas. Enjoy the living room with gas fireplace, well appointed bedroom, two full bathrooms, a sunlit kitchen, a separate dining area. Possible rental opportunity or guest space for family use with the private entrance. Back in the main house, the second floor includes the master bedroom with a corner location offering three areas of light coveted by architects, two large walk in closets and a bathroom that has a wraparound vanity area, two sinks and a white marble soaking tub. At the upper center hall there is a library featuring a large desk with views of an Italian balcony on the opposite wall.

The lower level, accessed from either the center hall or kitchen, has a spacious family room complete with seating area, warming fireplace, and pool table. The six zone heating furnace is part of the functional mechanics of this home in this lower level.
