Edwardian Manor

A

t the end of a long wooded drive, atop a five-acre site, this English Renaissance style house is sited to capture the city view. The rambling, one-room deep house is designed to fill each room with sunlight and connect with the surrounding terraced gardens.

The late 19th century architecture of Edwin Lutyens inspired its tone and details including, the entry loggia’s rusticated limestone arches, the classical side porch with coffered ceiling and the bold expressions of classical millwork on the interior.

Electric elements enliven the rear façade with a baroque fireplace above a garden grotto and a glazed corner tower room overlooking the city. The interior’s French limestone flooring, hand carved European walnut paneled library and delicately carved moldings compliment the patron’s extensive art collection.
