One of the most important and illustrious properties in Pound Ridge, this meticulously-renovated and beautifully-expanded 6-acre estate compound impresses to every detail. Originally home to D.W. Griffiths, famed Hollywood filmmaker, the light-flooded residence artfully incorporates a large expansion with cutting-edge design into the subtly-elegant spaces of the exceptional sophisticated country estate. Among the highlights of the show-stopping residence are a perfectly-proportioned living room with antique beam ceiling, centered-marble fireplace and recessed paneling; a bar room with wine refrigeration, multiple work spaces and storage; a light-flooded dining room; and a family room with fireplace opening to a greenhouse-style kitchen with top appliances, and guest powder room.The second level features a sleek stone, steel and wood two-level Gallery (perfect for the collector) with soaring ceiling, wall of glass, and appointed with ultra-modern architectural details of stainless steel cable railings, I-beams, and oversize bluestone tile all overlooking the spectacular gardens. A very private office with tall ceilings and custom cabinetry centered by a soaring Palladian-style window with window seat, a working artist's studio/office with fireplace and full bath are additional highlights. An elegantly appointed master suite with marble fireplace and private balcony, study, and spa-quality bath with soaking tub and dressing room finish the level. A third level, the perfect private family quarters or guest wing, features 3 additional bedrooms and full hall bath.Outside, a charming stone and slate Guest House, beautifully-set in the manicured gardens, features a barn ceiling with beams, slate floors, raised-hearth stone fireplace, full bath, cabana with outdoor shower and steps-down to an entertaining terrace with a sparkling pool. And perfectly positioned in the front flanked by apple trees, boxwoods, stone walls and flagstone walkways, a stone and slate studio is the perfect full gym. Capturing the essence of country living, the 6-acre grounds are accented with mature specimen gardens formally landscaped with boxwoods, flowering shrubs, mature trees and a myriad of specimen plantings. Open, level lawns edged with stonework and perennial gardens further reinforce the natural splendor of the arboretum-like setting. Unrivaled in every detail, this unique estate compound impresses at every turn.
