Perched on a hill, this circa 1900 home of renown composer John Corigliano, tastefully blends original period details—crystal door knobs, brass fixtures, a corner china cabinet—with modern renovations. The chef’s kitchen is not only aesthetically pleasing with dramatic windows, a cathedral ceiling, stainless appliances and granite countertops, but also functional, including warming/cooling racks, ample storage, cookbook shelves and a pantry. French doors flood the dining room with light. A wood-burning fireplace with a lovely bas-relief surround, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and built-in music cabinet create a living room with warmth and charm. The flow is perfect for entertaining. The primary ensuite with it’s high ceilings, windows all around, and glass door to the back patio is an inviting retreat. Two additional bedrooms and full bath comprise the upper level. Above the home sits a large detached studio/office with woodland vistas. This quiet refuge features a wood deck, french doors, cathedral ceiling, wood beams, ceiling fan, heat, cable/phone/internet, big windows and hardwood floors. The property is both private and naturally beautiful with two patios, dry-stack stone walls, and mature landscaping filled with a variety of perennials and flowering shrubs. It’s ringed in back by an expanse of lawn set off by rock outcroppings and borders a nature preserve. City water, city sewer, natural gas access. Close to beaches, restaurants and train. Welcome home!
