Brilliant Architecture. A True Masterpiece. Built as Judge Wood’s personal residence in 1895 by one of the foremost, progressive architects of the era, W. Albert Swasey, this century revival estate is one of the first four residences built in the area. At 7+ bedrooms, 3 of which are suites, a library, 4.5 baths, nearly 5200 sq ft, 6 bay windows, 4 fireplaces, & 3 levels of space, #27 Waterman Place set the rule, not the exception, for homes to come over the next century. The stately front elevation is finished in brown brick with two symmetrical bows featuring gorgeous curved glass windows, doric columns, & limestone accents. The cathedral front door w/ oversized sidelights & transom window ushers us into the grand foyer from a bygone era with breathtaking views of the show-stopping bifurcated staircase, the grand ballroom now used a living room, & the exquisite dining room. Built-in bookcases, majestic crown molding & trim, raised-panel wainscot, chandeliers, basket weave marble tile floor, & stunning rift sawn oak wood floors are only a sneak peek of what #27 Waterman delivers! The main level is rounded out with a kitchen, breakfast room, full bath, atrium, & an expansive butler’s pantry. Atop the grand staircase just before reaching the 2nd level, exists a nearly wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling window, an observation deck of sorts, offering a picturesque, bird’s-eye view of the generously sized grounds, terrace, & gardens. The 2nd level continues to impress with soaring ceilings, incredible natural light, & 4 substantially sized chambers: the master bedroom suite outfitted with a bay window, fireplace, & large bathroom; a 2nd suite with full bath; the library (or possibly the 3rd suite) connects to the master suite & is finished with floor-to-ceiling book shelves & a bay window; a 3rd bedroom also complete with a large bay window; & finally, a half bath & 2nd level laundry rounds out the 2nd level. The remaining 4 bedrooms, also very generously sized, & 4th full bathroom are tucked away on the 3rd level & accessed by a second staircase. A full basement spanning the entire footprint of the house & a 2 car garage complete our tour. #27 Waterman Place is a remarkable architectural feat that even the most discriminating buyers will appreciate.
