With five bedrooms and four and a half baths, it is listed with Sotheby’s Patricia Wadzinski at $6.3 million. An open house will take place on Saturday, October 17, from 2:30 to 4 p.m.

A foyer leads to a large living room with a fireplace, a separate dining room, and media room or office. The kitchen opens to covered and opened terraces. An unusually large pantry — 13.3 feet by 8.5 feet — with shelving would be a haven for any chef or hostess — there is plenty of room for bottles of Veuve Clicquot or to stack extra plates for the next big party.

A bedroom and bath for staff is also located on the first floor, along with a powder room for guests.

The master bedroom suite on the second floor is truly that, as it has its own private study and a 13-by-21-foot terrace overlooking the pool. Just down the hall, a junior master suite has its very own sitting area. Two additional guest bedrooms — one with a fireplace — share a bath.

Both the covered and open terraces on stone patios provide the perfect setting for outdoor dining and entertaining. The rolling 1.3-acre property also has a heated gunite, freeform pool.and mature landscaping designed for complete privacy.
