Description

SHEER OPULENCE - 10 BELKNAP - RUMSON As you enter the lush grounds of Longue Vue Estate it becomes quite apparent you are about to experience something extraordinary. High expectations will be sustained as this quintessential Georgian Revival with Parisian influence unfolds. For those seeking commonplace trim and finishes... with all due respect...this magnificent estate is simply not for you. If on the other hand you revere and appreciate the finer things in life... or wish to, come and experience this pinnacle of superior craftsmanship and good taste. Over 11,000 sq feet, not including the lower level with media room offers 9 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms, 8 full and 4 half. Interior by the highly regarded Sally Bacarella Design Studio.We begin in the receiving foyer, reminiscent of the most glorious Chateaus throughout France. The foyer powder room embedded in the curved staircase walls is a work of art in and of itself. From this stately foyer, exquisite architectural site lines draw your attention to the opulent, Faberge inspired dining area. While many floor plans simply "check" the dining room box out of tradition, this room will surely be enjoyed during family suppers and special occasions. A detailed list of descriptions and features will be furnished upon request but a short list includes fine milled dental molding, exquisite furniture quality built-ins and curved window box. One stroke of the buttery smooth paint finish confirms a level of quality seldom found in today's craftsmanship. Three living areas, all with their own grace and character begin with an absolutely sumptuous formal living room suitable for the most elegant gatherings and adorned with quarter sawn, parquet, oak floors found only in the finest homes in the United States and Europe. The renowned W.F. Sherman and Sons was commissioned for nearly a year to create by hand and then install the Intricate custom mill-work . A large fireplace and french doors to the terrace with access to the kitchen make any indoor/outdoor transitions for entertaining a joyful experience. Four Murano chandeliers imported from Venice Italy, as well as all light fixtures in the estate are presently included in this offering. The second informal living room with substantial, coffered ceilings and deep wood burning fireplace is located just off the kitchen, separated by beautiful lead framed glass doors. This is a very comfortable room for everyday use, yet commensurate in rich quality and detail as it relates to the rest of the estate. Finally, descend down the imported tile steps to the third living area, a true sanctuary/solarium bathed in sunlight. Teak ceiling details are in perfect harmony with luxurious wall coverings, light fixtures and window treatments. French doors lead out to the rear terrace and concrete, salt water swimming pool. All light fixtures and designer custom window treatments throughout the estate are presently included in this offering. The esteemed Clive Christian kitchen is both warm and inviting for family and friends while at the same time equipped for serious entertaining. Viking appliances, 3 ovens, field finished wood cabinetry and a genuine tin ceiling - so pure it was installed with white gloves to avoid contamination. Needles to say, this is not a cookie cutter affair. French door also leads to the terrace from the eat-in area. The first floor also includes a very tasteful and well situated and proportioned office adorned with African/ Cherry paneled wall detail. A floral arranging room with carved stone sink is just down the hall...well wouldn't it be? Yes, of course it would. Onward and upward to the Master bedroom by stair or 4 stop elevator. In generously sized estates such as this, masters suites can get a little overplayed offering neither comfort nor appropriate scale as it relates to the furniture within. This master space is simply perfect. The romantic, deep fireplace, (not a shallow insert with inexpensive glass window) brings great gravity to the room. Back light from the milled ceiling trim is beautifully designed and properly proportioned. The windows and balcony porch offer glorious views of the grounds and salt water pool. This master sleeping chamber is tranquility personified. The master bath is adorned with imported mother of pearl inlay, domed ceiling with light detail, his and her separate water closets, sinks and his and her private showers. They are unified at the center by a beautiful soaking tub framed by curved windows. Above one of the two master closets there is a large 3rd, "season changeover" and organization closet. Each of the 9 bedrooms is fresh, attractive and comfortable with lovely views of the grounds. A very generous guest suite is on the far side of the estate with its own private staircase to the main level. There is also a large workout area with high ceilings. The lower level offers a 10 seat, professionally sound dampened movie and entertainment room as well as bar/lounge area and is currently offered with furnishings from Oscar winning actress Barbara Stanwick's personal collection. A few words about heating: For the knowledgeable owner who believes common forced hot-air heating is simply unacceptable without radiant as well, the Longue Vue Estate features what many heating experts consider a superior hot water system that creates a much more consistent, comfortable environment. Few structures include such a system due to the increased costs that must be allocated during the initial planning stages of such a grand estate. Sadly, many homes of this caliber do not enjoy such a superior system. Once you experience this level of comfort, it's very hard to imagine how you could ever live without it. This isn't just Rumson, this is Rumson at it's finest. Call for more details or to arrange for a private, confidential showing. All measurements are approx. Sq Footage per tax records.
