Iconic Residence in Volk Estates
With its awe-inspiring architecture and gloriously beautiful grounds, this iconic estate is simply breathtaking. No wonder it’s the crown jewel among the Volk Estates’ collection of gems.
Nestled behind a towering hedge that surrounds the estate, the residence is truly a world unto itself. The cobblestone pathway and driveway leading into this exquisitely landcaped wonderland, with its manicured lawns, English rose gardens, grove of peach trees and Ashlar-pattern walkway winding around the perimeter, only serve as a backdrop for the property’s centerpiece — the dazzling neo-classical brick home with its beautiful lines and stately slate and copper roof.
From its imported hand-pegged parquet wood floors, Calacatta extra marble slab floors, rare architectural imported elements, nine fireplaces, and towering three-story rotunda with a stained-glass dome, to its spectacular primary suite’s spa-quality bathroom with walk-in closets complete with sauna, coffee bar, fireplace, balcony, sitting room, and exercise room, the manor is the perfect marriage of timeless Old World elegance and the luxuries of today’s modern day world, including an elevator servicing the three main levels and basement.
The ground level’s public rooms — including living rooms, a solarium, a dining room and a library — are designed for entertaining friends and family alike, as well as an idyllic retreat from the day’s hustle and bustle. To accommodate any occasion, the sophisticated culinary center with its state-of-the-art appliances is complemented by a butler’s pantry and a catering kitchen. Rounding out the first floor, is a private guest suite with its own fireplace and a spacious ensuite bath.
There are three ensuite guestrooms on the second level along with an upstairs library and media room that is also ensuite and could be utilized as a sixth bedroom. The third level, a game room that doubles as a secondary media room, is its own getaway for settling back with a good book. And there’s no need to leave for a break, thanks to a mini-kitchen and a powder room. Just for fun, the grounds also include a nine-hole putting green, two adorable playhouses and accommodations for five estate-worthy vehicles.
Thanks to a team of award-winning designers and carefully curated materials, this magnificent estate is a showcase of world-class taste.
