Maison Verne: One of a kind modern classic. A connoisseur’s dream, unique architectural design elements w/European vibes & open space living. A home with character, completely reconstructed & expanded w/updated efficiency mechanicals, all new plumbing, electrical & metal roof. “Maison Verne” takes its name from French author Jules Verne, (famous for his science fiction masterpieces “20 Thousand Leagues Under the Sea”, “From the Earth to the Moon”). Reminiscent of Verne’s rivets & metal imagery, the extraordinary custom ironwork executed by a local iron master is displayed thru out. This includes the open floating staircase, interior & exterior supports & a jaw dropping polished steel-covered powder room. The stairs & upper hallway have floor to ceiling glass. Broad plank pine floors & ubiquitous imported mahogany French doors complete the European flair. Architect trained/designer owners carefully chose solid brass nautical exterior lighting, porthole skylights & European hardware. Finished solid beams span the high ceilings upstairs, while the open lofty feeling downstairs with exposed brick fireplace lends itself for entertaining.French doors provide access to out-of-doors from every room in the house.Baths have watertight poured epoxy lacquered floors. The glacial rock in front provides additional privacy. Wells Hill Rd is one of our most coveted locations. Near public & private schools, hospital, ski, hiking trails, kayak, sail in our lakes & rivers, 25 min to metro north
