Mix neo-classical and Cape Cod to get a $2,798,000 house on Yarrow Point. For that neighborhood, consider it a bargain because you aren’t paying for waterfront, which means you get more style for your money.
While it looks classic, the house is fairly modern, built in 1994. Instant On fireplaces provide the look and feel of a country estate, but without the smoke and mess. The tone is subtle elegance, with ornamentation that enhances the spaces without drawing attention to itself.
The kitchen also has a country feel, and is ready to service a more formal dining space as well as a breakfast nook. It is equipped, however, with a six burner cooktop and double oven, plenty of capacity for creating feasts.
There’s more to the four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms than just some numbers and walls. Heated floors in the shower are a welcome luxury. But, there’s probably more room devoted to the massive closets.
There are two offices, too. Pairs of offices are becoming common as work progresses into homes. A more relaxed addition is an upstairs with just enough room for the shelves, some chairs, and another fireplace. A cozy place to retreat to, maybe even a room where the internet isn’t a distraction.
The 4,246 square foot house sits amidst formal gardens. A broad patio provides a venue for entertaining. Check to see if one of the sitting areas is equipped with a fire pit, or a gas-fired feature for late night conversations, after our weather clears.
