An architectural masterpiece, inside and out. Designed by Yale trained Architect Angus MacDonald and built in 1997, it is a unique home filled with light and access to the outdoors. It has 7800 square feet of living space, plus a wonderful “sculpture garden” atrium seen from the entrance, the Great Room, the Dining room and through the 25-foot glass walls at the front of the house. With three large stone chimneys anchoring the three main living spaces, it is a perfectly balanced design. Constructed with stone, cement and steel by an architect who specializes in disaster proof construction, it is like no other home on the market. Architect MacDonald developed and patented the Am-Cor design and construction technique using cement and steel. Every living space has unobstructed, expansive views of the outdoors, with total privacy.
Every detail is meticulously done in the classic contemporary style. The Great room, Dining room, kitchen and front and back patios flow seamlessly together for day to day living as well as the most formal to the most informal entertainment. The huge kitchen has two large islands, two Viking ovens, two dishwashers, a Subzero refrigerator and beautiful granite countertops throughout. Another striking feature of the home is a built-in dining table with stone base and granite top, that seats fourteen. It serves as an ideal space for the most elegant dinners for Ambassadors and museum directors, as well as an indestructible space for teenage parties. The huge driveway easily accommodates 10 cars during a party.
