Rare opportunity!! Looking to own a unique piece of history? Your search ends here! Built in 1893, this beautiful home was the carriage house to the expansive Rockwell estate, Brightwood Hall, designed by architect H. Neill Wilson. The exquisite craftsmanship of this home–ironwork, stonework, woodwork–is unparalleled. Nestled away on park-like grounds, yet convenient to shopping, highways, and area amenities, the property boasts an impressive stone patio leading to the home’s formal entrance. The true magic begins as soon as you enter the foyer with its grand staircase, intricate woodwork, and original floor to ceiling mirror. The flow of the first floor lends itself to multiple entertainment opportunities-from intimate dinners to grand parties. The living room is a showstopper with its large stone fireplace, leaded glass windows, and beamed ceiling. The magic continues as you head down the hall to the formal dining room. The adjacent study with bookshelves and built-ins offers a wonderful space for an office or a place to store/display china and linens. The spacious eat-in kitchen will make meal prep a breeze. The first floor is rounded out with a media room, mudroom, and combination half-bath/laundry room. Heading upstairs, you’ll find a second floor to ceiling mirror on the landing, two large bedrooms, beautiful hallway bath, storage closets with built-ins, and the MBR suite. Need extra space to entertain or work on a project? Head to the basement to two finished spaces and extra work rooms. While there, make sure to check out the updated mechanical systems that provide the heat and central air to this impressive home. Lovingly enjoyed by the same owner since the 1960s, the home has welcomed local, state, national, and international dignitaries. Now it is ready for its next chapter to be written. This is an Estate Sale. Being sold AS IS.
