229 West Eugenie Street

The most discreet and elegant residence in all of historic Old Town. Situated on nearly 3 lots, this architecturally significant and tech forward home offers a lifestyle unlikely to ever be replicated. The grounds consist of a light-filled single family home, reimagined historic 'fire cottage', lush gardens, and an oversized 2 1/2 car garage connected by heated walkways. The primary residence, carefully designed by the current owners and renowned Rugo Raff architects, boasts natural light in every room with detailed craftsmanship throughout. The main level offers a welcoming foyer with curved plaster walls, walnut paneled library with one of 5 wood burning fireplaces, hand crafted staircase, a mezzanine, separate living room and dining room flanked with built-ins and floor to ceiling windows, piano room, and a true commercial grade kitchen. The entire west wing of the main level was raised to accommodate the basement expansion and the Food & Wine Magazine featured kitchen, one of only a handful of residential kitchens built by SML, the company that creates Michelin-starred kitchens. The second floor features a full floor primary retreat with large, custom walk-in closets, oversized bathroom w/ large open shower, teak ceiling, and skylights, heated flooring and sep water closet, and a private sitting room w/ adjacent home office. A third floor attic is a private study and quiet home office that completes the East wing of the home. Over the glass bridge is the family wing with two large bedroom suites, each with a reading loft perfect for homework or sleep overs. The lower level encompasses a generous family game and media room, modern wine cellar, and flex Rec room/music room/additional bedroom, large laundry center & full bathroom w/ walk-in shower. Tucked away through the gardens is a separate coach house with lofted bedroom space, bathroom, and kitchen ideal for guests, a gym, and art or yoga studio with a nano-wall that opens completely to the garden. The outdoor space is a fully-private walled garden with generous gathering areas, espalier pear trees, concord grape vines, arctic kiwi, and a large roof deck above an oversized 2 1/2 car garage. No expense was spared and small details abound in the creation of this meticulously cared for private compound.
