Walk up the stoop to discover a five-storey home exuding cultural efflorescence. The living room boasts riches aesthetic and erudite: a horsehair-upholstered sofa, intricate rugs and boldly printed cushions reminiscent of eclectic treasures from the Silk Route, and lofty bookshelves stacked with tomes written by enlightened minds. A sprawling kitchen, all honey-hued wood, shiny white cabinets, and top-of-the-line stainless steel accoutrements, sets the stage for the flavours of the Spice Islands. In the dining room, a breathtaking Pluma Cubic pendant lamp made of feathers illuminates an intimate setting where families can break bread. Armchairs draped with seafaring ropes face floor-to-ceiling glass windows, inviting further exploration. Descend from the staircase, an iron and teak modern masterpiece, for a choice of two tempting perspectives: the lush manicured backyard outdoors and the contemporary comfort of the sitting room within.
Venture to a graceful Eero Saarinen table in the secluded study - the ideal spot for pondering Descartes. Six bedrooms, four bathrooms, three powder rooms and a shower room for children and guests are generously spread throughout the home, with a grand accommodations reserved for the masters suite, with its own sitting room, powder room, shower room and bedroom. The ensuite emerald green bath features a clam-shaped tub fit for Boticelli’s Venus. The pristine master bedroom has all the serenity of Mona Lisa's smile.
