The newly constructed dream home at 135 Highland Road in Rye has everything a new homeowner could ever wish for – from the 20-foot-high entry foyer to the magnificent chef's kitchen to the luxurious mahogany-paneled office. Beautifully designed to combine an elegant New England Colonial exterior with striking contemporary interior design, this 7900+-square-foot home also features seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, ten-foot ceilings, and five fireplaces.
"From the moment you open the solid mahogany front door and take in the two-story entryway and sweeping staircase to the second floor, you are surrounded by luxury," says Fiona Dogan, Realtor at Julia B. Fee Sotheby's International Realty. "The home features custom millwork and cabinetry built on-site by master craftsmen and has the finest quartz, marble, and granite countertops throughout. In addition, the builder has utilized the most upscale and up-to-date amenities, including Smart Home Lutron lighting, radiant heat, and high-efficiency, multi-zoned heating and cooling systems. It’s fantastic!"
And that’s just for starters. The extraordinary level of custom detail includes a gourmet kitchen with two islands, a 36” Sub-Zero refrigerator and 36” Sub-Zero freezer, two dishwashers, and a butler's pantry. The home also has formal living and dining rooms; family room with a coffered ceiling; private mahogany office featuring an "entertainment gallery" with built-in bar and Sub-Zero wine storage; den/playroom; and a bedroom and second office/mudroom – all on the first floor.
Upstairs, there's a majestic master bedroom suite with a gas fireplace, tray ceiling, his/her walk-in custom closets, private outdoor balcony, and Dolomite marble master bathroom, along with four additional bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms.
The lower level features a rustic wine cellar area and a fully finished recreation room, and there is also a three-car garage fully outfitted with GarageTek-style cabinetry, storage, and epoxy floor. Set on a magnificent private level one-acre parcel, the home has an extensive outdoor BBQ/TV/bar area, covered bluestone patio, and room for a pool.
Another added benefit is the home's in-demand location in the heart of Rye's Indian Village, just steps away from downtown shops and restaurants, and the Rye train station, and extremely close to Rye Country Day School and the Apawamis Country Club.
