"The Empress of Pelham" Dressed in black and white this elegant three storey Second Empire home invites images of formal garden parties and white tent events. Built in 1875, expanded on in the 1970's and completely renovated this year, the home rests on just shy of 2 acres that are filled with large mature trees and sweeping emerald lawns. Ten foot ceilings, 14 inch baseboards, plaster ceiling mounts adorned with crystal chandeliers, exquisite century old pine floors, walnut staircases & 8 foot doors all add to the dramatic spaciousness of this historic beauty. The grand entrance's towering windows flow around the intimate dining room, all perfectly lit by natural light originating from the west. A modern chefs kitchen dressed in dazzling white quartz with a nine foot centre island over zebra marble floor opens onto the fireplace room overlooking the rear yard & pool. Upstairs the master suite features carved wooden cornice and even more crystal chandeliers to fit the Napoleon the Third inspired architecture. The white marble spa inspired ensuite retreat is an experience you won't want to end. Seven entrances, four porches, a fenced private yard, BBQ patio, gardens, a large shaded barn and ten car circular drive further add to this one of a kind home's greatness. This home boasts over 4500 sq.ft of beauty plus a bonus 578 sq.ft loft waiting to become your own private studio. This country estate is stunning!
