These days do you find yourself yearning for that sort of welcoming house...where the art of living graciously is practiced,where rooms can be arranged for inviting one, two or four people as comfortably as fifty? Built in that era of elegance along the waterfront, the 1920's, this home has all you could want for the needs of the 2020's: places for multi-generational living, shelter in place practicality, areas for working at home or virtual learning. Meaning there are rooms where one can be accessible, yet professional; where a quiet corner can easily be created. There is a Library off the main foyer, 2 master bedroom suites, an in law/au pair apartment with separate entrance should you need, but also accessible by the nearby elevator. In addition, a catering kitchen is behind the primary kitchen for the days when entertaining is possible once again, an expansive stone terrace accessed by French Doors from the Foyer, Dining Room, Kitchen and the lovely Palladian windowed Sun Room (off the Living Room) with stunning views of Southport Harbor and Long Island Sound. Can you imagine all the doors flung open, music playing, fans whirring overhead and laughter as the stars and lights begin to twinkle after watching the stunning sunsets from this vantage point.
