This outstanding 1988 residence by architect Anthony Ames was distinguished with the 1989 Design Award of the AIA. Precisely engineered, the sophisticated design combines dramatic interior spaces with exceptional details. The striking exterior of architectural block and brick with porcelain panels incorporates large expanses of glass throughout, capturing views of the natural landscape. Oak floors, plastered walls and custom cabinetry are featured throughout. All mechanical systems are state-of-the-art. The full basement includes a full bath and finished space ideal for family room, office, or gym. The 9 acres of gently rolling meadow are bordered by stone walls and lush woodland. Surrounding the home are exquisitely landscaped lawns, sloping to the west to provide far-reaching vistas. A stone terrace enjoys superb views. The grounds include a fenced horse barn and pastures. A circular drive, with two 3-car garages create a distinctive entrance court.
