“The 2,753 square foot residence is set on a pristine 0.61 acre lot with a wooded backdrop close to the Upper Ferry in the distinguished Eden community of Cooper Landing.
Tailored French Navy shutters add a note of distinction to the dove grey siding with white detailing. Carriage lights illuminate the spacious parking area leading to the in-built, three-car garage at the side of the house. A path curves around the landscaped garden to the wide, railed and cobblestone-floored front porch. Faceted glass inserts decorate the front door and sidelights.

An eye-popping foyer with geometrically-patterned marble flooring greets visitors. In contrast, a beautifully detailed oak staircase rises to the second floor, while double six-on-six windows flood the area with light. A five-light, brass chandelier is suspended from the nine-foot ceiling.
A wide entrance to the carpeted master bedroom suite leads immediately from the right of the foyer. An illuminated, double- paddle fan is suspended from the ceiling while deep, paned windows overlook the garden. A huge walk-in closet opens to the right.
The slightest movement triggers the lights in the master bathroom. Ivory granite tops the honeyed-oak cabinets of the double vanity while glass tiles form the back-splash. Shiny steel fitments secure twin oval mirrors.
En route to the kitchen is a charming marble- floored powder room.
Top-of-the-line Viking appliances- including red-enameled range, vent hood and dishwasher – are the stars of the open-plan, slate-floored kitchen. Thick granite counters top the solid oak cabinets. A butcher’s block forms the central island. Two frosted glass shades light the curved breakfast bar. Recessed ceiling lights add to the illumination. A short hallway leads to the fully equipped laundry- the home’s water is heated by an energy-saving Rinnai appliance- and garage/workshop.
A bank of three, six-on-six windows overlooks the garden from the dining room while an attractive, six-light chandelier hangs over the table.
The combination of an oak-mantled gas log fireplace with wall-to-wall carpet and a view of the garden through triple French doors creates an atmosphere of airy comfort in the living room. A wide paddle fan adjusts the air flow. A beautiful weeping willow completes the garden view from the back porch.
Each of the three bedrooms in the house has its own, self contained full bathroom and walk-in closet. A second bedroom suite is accessed through a door to the side of the kitchen. The roomy bedroom overlooks the garden through paned windows. A wooden paddle fan with frosted glass light bowl centers the ceiling. Twin basins top the golden oak vanity in the bathroom.
An oak-framed French door stands at the entrance to the huge pool/ entertainment room at the top of a superbly-crafted staircase leading to the second floor. Three arched alcoves take up one whole wall. Each can be designated a different task- bar/music centre/ display area. Another wall is highlighted by gas-fired log fireplace. A trio of brass lights is suspended from the tray ceiling over the pool table. Recessed fixtures beam extra light. Twin six-on-six windows look down onto the garden below.
The gleaming golden oak floor flows throughout the upper story, from the pool room into the huge, dormer third bedroom/ sitting room and on into the walk-in closet. A full bathroom completes the suite. There is also an unfinished area of 600 square feet- potential for storage or another suite- under the rafters.”
