This exceptional residence is nestled on four-plus beautifully landscaped and wooded acres in one of Waccabuc’s premier estate areas. The private-yet-welcoming home is designed for grand entertaining and the best in family living and recreation. It even has its own roller hockey rink.

First, though, a well-manicured courtyard invites you into a light-filled entry with soaring ceilings and windows, lustrous Brazilian cherry flooring and wide entryways with perfectly proportioned living and dining rooms for gracious entertaining with ease. A richly appointed study with fireplace and custom cabinetry offers uninterrupted work or quiet relaxation. Impressive without being overly formal, a great room contains a state-of-the-art kitchen with a large island and granite counters and heart pine floors; a light-imbued conservatory-style breakfast room; an amenity-filled butler’s pantry; and a large stone fireplace.

The second level with a private master suite features architectural round windows, a spa-quality bath and a separate, large dressing room with custom cabinetry throughout. An additional four bedrooms and four full baths, exercise room, bonus room with full bath and laundry room finish the second level. A private third floor offers an expansive room with a beamed and gabled ceiling and a serene porch overlooking the lawn.

The lower level has entertaining and family living on a redefined scale, featuring a movie theater with cinema-quality seating and surround sound; an arcade room; a commercial quality, fully-appointed custom bar with a large billiard and media area; that indoor roller hockey rink complete with locker room; and a kitchen. It leads onto a sparkling pool with a limestone terrace and complementing arbor and a large, sweeping lawn.
