Property Description

Outstanding opportunity to own the iconic Bishops Hall on its estate sized lot in the heart of the Frank Lloyd Wright Historic District. This Georgian Revival home has been completely renovated. The elegant grand foyer sets the stage for entertaining, opening to the Living Room with working fireplace and room for multiple seating areas. Flanking the fireplace wall are French Doors to the music room which would also make a bright and sunny home office. The Sunroom spills light into the Foyer and Dining Room with 3 sets of French doors that open to the backyard. The Dining Room is oversized for those wonderful holiday and special occasion meals and leads into the L shaped butler's pantry with glass fronted cabinets. The Kitchen is set up for serious meal prep with 2 additional pantries and opens to a cozy yet large Breakfast Room. Not to be missed, behind a hidden door is the Library with bookshelves and a working fireplace, truly a magical room. Back out into the Foyer, travel up the grand staircase to the 2nd floor Gallery Hall with its sweet outdoor balcony. The Primary Bedroom is a delight with working fireplace, walk-in closet/sitting room and a magazine worthy, en-suite bath! Three additional large bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, grace this floor. Traveling upstairs again, you will find an enormous treetop retreat with built-ins, Family Room, TV space and a banquette! The Basement features a Home Gym, Laundry Room, wine storage and newer double boiler. This property features significant chandeliers, wall sconces and architectural millwork and a renovated slate roof. Delightful sundial garden and pergola in the backyard as well as a 3-car garage with space to park additional cars on the driveway. This is an outstanding opportunity to have a work from home business.
