Cuba Road and Hillside Mill Road, this relative newcomer to 19807 is an expansive custom retreat providing over seventy-nine-hundred square feet of living space. Located within the gated community of Deer Valley, this tucked-away residence sits back on a lovely two-acre treed lot with soothing views of a placid pond below. Notable neighbors include the Mt. Cuba Astronomical Observatory, Hoopes Reservoir, and the nearby Mt. Cuba Center. Your first impression is enhanced by the substantial grassy frontage and mature landscaping, the curved drive sided with stucco-and-stone retaining walls, and the thoughtful way the architect applied a hint of French-country graciousness to the overall design. Immediate features include a terraced slate walkway, complementary windows of varying sizes, two open covered porches, and a rounded stone tower topped with a conical roof and weather vain. From the moment you enter through the imposing three-quarter leaded-glass door with matching sidelights into the large open foyer, you will delight in the seemingly endless sea of Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring. You cannot escape the generous application of expert millwork including layered crown molding, ached casings, and sumptuous wainscoting. The mood of this home is set by the walls adorned with the gentle colors of Sherwin Williams. Beyond the entrance lies the spectacular open-concept eat-in kitchen by Paradise Custom Kitchens with hardwood flooring, handsome cabinetry, attention-grabbing granite countertops, and a perfectly sized island with a double stainless-steel sink and a four-seat breakfast bar. Plenty of space for all! Premium appliances by D~cor and Sub-Zero include a wood-fronted, two-door refrigerator, two built-in ovens, a concealed dishwasher, a built-in microwave, and a five-burner gas cooktop. Not to be overlooked, the kitchen also features a butler~s pantry with wet bar, a ceramic tile backsplash, a hooded exhaust vent, recessed lighting, pendant lighting, and direct access from the breakfast area to the large raised covered patio featuring a Vaulted Ceiling with recessed lighting and a ceiling fan, a wood-burning fireplace, and magnificent views. Additional main-level highlights include the appropriately elegant front-facing formal dining room, the rear-facing formal living room with gas fireplace, the open family room with gas fireplace adjoining the kitchen, and a well-sized media room! Further main-level highlights include nine-foot ceilings, built-in speakers, recessed lighting, and a discretely located powder room with a stunning marble pedestal sink. Heading upstairs, the wrought-iron-railed turned staircase brings you to a sizable landing leading to the beds and baths. The lighted niches flanking the French-door entrance to the master suite are perfect for favored art pieces. This rear-facing suite features a sitting room with gas fireplace, bedroom with tray ceiling, two walk-in closets, and a luxurious bath featuring Travertine tile, a double vanity, a three-head walk-in shower, and a jetted tub with skylight above. Additional upper-level features include two full suites with fluted shower-tub doors, a laundry room, attic access, eight-foot ceilings, and California Closets.
