With 6 bedrooms/5.1 baths, this custom-built, 7,655 sq-ft home occupies 2.22 acres of waterfront on Joshua Cove. Each room showcases architectural and construction excellence, from Brazilian cherrywood flooring and built-in shelving to triple-pane windows and a turret’s curved mahogany wood staircase leading to a rooftop deck with amazing vistas. The main floor is smartly divided, with the dining room, living room, home office, mudroom, powder room, and one of two primary bedrooms on one wing. The other wing features the gourmet kitchen with custom cabinets, large cherry-topped island, 5-burner Wolf gas range, Wolf double wall ovens, 2 Sub-Zero refrigerators, 2 sinks, and wine cooler, plus a built-in banquette dining area. Adjacent are the craft room and family room, which leads to both a sunroom and a spectacular bluestone deck overlooking the private yard, gardens, and waterfront. The second floor includes another primary bedroom, with a semicircular wall of windows, and spacious bath. Two of the other 4 bedrooms have their own full baths; the other 2 share one bath. This level also includes a waterfront-facing great room, exercise room, and laundry room.
