A once in a lifetime opportunity awaits, nestled on a lot of nearly three acres at the end of a wooded cul de sac, within a majestic estate where work and family life blend seamlessly. This young Colonial was custom built in 2012, designed by the talented architect Patrick Ahearn, known for his creation of timeless and classic renovations crafted to fit the needs of today’s lifestyles. Welcome home to picturesque Carlisle and over 11,000 square feet of living space encompassing the property’s main home, carriage house, pool house, and 4-car garage with guest suite, all designed for ease in both work and play. Breathtaking curb appeal greets you with professionally landscaped grounds, stone walls, gardens, and multi-level hardscaping. Two driveways span towards the house, one splitting off towards the barn to privately accommodate clients or guests.
The cedar-shingled, double gambrel façade of the main homestead is in perfect sync with Carlisle’s traditional farmhouse aesthetic, yet the interior brims with modern flair, elegant style, and an easy-flow floor plan designed for comfortable living. From the moment you enter the open-concept foyer, graced by wainscoting and gleaming walnut-stained hardwood floors, you know you have entered a home of stunning design, quality craftsmanship, and exquisite finishes throughout. The grand foyer unfolds seamlessly past decorative columns into the elegant, double-height formal living room surrounded by wainscoting as the meticulous hardwood flooring continues to span. A gas fireplace is graced by a stone façade as sunlight streams through the wall of windows stretching high to the open second level above. Double French doors connect with a covered porch and the sprawling land beyond.
French doors open to the formal dining room, tastefully done in dark, rich wood tones with a beadboard coffered ceiling and wainscoting. Imagine sharing laughter, conversation, and sparkling wine with guests in this gorgeous room. Three large windows offer delightful views of the front yard as a sliding pocket door connects with the kitchen for effortless entertaining. Across the hall endless natural light streams through the walls of windows in the gracious sunroom with a beadboard coffered ceiling and direct outdoor access at every turn. Step outside onto the covered porch to unwind with spectacular views of the vast landscape beyond. Bluestone flooring in the sunroom smooths the transition from the outdoors as a wood-burning fireplace offers a cozy place to gather on chilly nights.
Prepare to be amazed in the gourmet kitchen where all will love to gather. The stunning kitchen is truly the heart of the home and is bright, open, and airy with professional grade stainless steel appliances including the Wolf gas range and two SubZero refrigerators. The chef will delight in preparing treasured family recipes at the huge breakfast bar island with a prep sink, surrounded by show-stopping features including quartz countertops, a double wall oven, two dishwashers, a wine cooler, beverage storage, a white beadboard coffered ceiling, modern pendant lighting, and hardwood flooring.
A large butler’s pantry offers even more stylish white cabinetry with glass-fronted upper cabinets and the second stainless-steel Subzero refrigerator for ultimate food storage. A sunny triple window over the sink offers tranquil views of the backyard and beyond. Decorative columns define the spacious informal dining area surrounded by walls of windows, a coffered beadboard ceiling, a fireplace with a stone façade, and French doors to the pool.
The first level continues to deliver in the spacious and versatile office with sunny double windows, gleaming hardwood floors, and a wall of built-in bookcases and cabinetry. The office would also work well as the home’s 6th bedroom suite. A magnificent library lies across the hall graced by a redwood cherry floor and walls of mahogany bookcases. All eyes will be drawn to the coffered ceiling with mahogany beams, as a gas fireplace adds ambiance and style with a stone surround. Double French doors offer another great connection to the covered porch. A full bathroom, situated between the office and library, is full of modern finishes with a quartz countertop and a tiled shower stall with a seat, stone/pebble floor, and glass door.
The mudroom off the kitchen is perfect for managing an active lifestyle with a half bathroom, radiant floor heat, built-ins, closets, and a connection to the upper level of the two-story, four-car garage. Car enthusiasts will delight at the Audi and Porsche emblems proudly tiled on the floor of the lower level garage. The garage is an automotive paradise providing plenty of room for parking, tool storage, and workspace for tinkering with your dream machine.
Luxurious style continues at every turn on the home’s second level. The master suite is a peaceful oasis, stunning in tranquil tones, and full of natural light. Outdoor living is limitless with a French door to a small, private balcony and a second French door to the shared upper deck with the hot tub. Two large walk-in closets with built-ins provide organization for your entire wardrobe and ease in dressing for date night. Marble floor tiles span the master bathroom with radiant heat, a white beadboard ceiling, a dual sink vanity with marble countertop, marble tiled steam shower, a spa tub, and a private toilet stall. French doors from the master bathroom connect with the shared deck for another easy connection to the hot tub.
The family bedrooms continue to deliver with built-in shelving, gleaming hardwood floors, en suite bathrooms, and one bedroom with a French door to the private balcony.
More space awaits on the finished lower level with a wet bar, oversized family room, home theater, and a half bathroom. The family room is spacious and carpeted, offering the perfect space to relax and unwind with family and friends. Gather for movie night in the theater with handsome dark wood trim, a built-in screen and projector, and a tray-ceiling with inset rope lighting.
A versatile guest suite over the garage offers all the necessary amenities for guests, extended family, or your au pair to live comfortably. The guest suite’s large bedroom is full of natural light with a kitchenette area and a neutral-toned full bathroom with a beautifully tiled shower stall and marble floor tiles.
The carriage house, just as beautifully appointed and luxurious as the main home, currently houses a guest suite/office suite and professional gym/training studio, surrounded by walls of windows with an adjoining cycling studio. The cycling studio was once a three-car garage and can easily be converted back to its original use if desired. The upper story of the carriage house transitions to a space perfect for use as a professional office, guest suite, or au pair suite full of contemporary style with a living room, bedroom, kitchenette, and full bathroom.
Many summer days will be spent relaxing by the pool or dining al fresco in the home’s gracious outdoor spaces. The pool and pool house are surrounded by beautiful gardens with lovely views of the main house and its charming Gambrel roofline. The pool house offers a full bathroom and kitchen, mirroring the home’s modern style with granite countertops and white cabinetry.
Your dream home awaits in the beautiful and historic town of Carlisle with its peaceful conservation lands, a renowned school system, and quaint town center. Welcome home to your very own private resort.
