The crown jewel of Queen Village is well known by all for its unparalleled grandeur and towering cathedral windows. The prestige of this home begins with its beautiful brick façade with black wrought iron adornments and a double thick facia that resembles a crown that soars above neighboring homes. You enter the home through black double doors gleaming with brass hardware and into a quaint vestibule with a chandelier, tumbled stone floors, and French glass doors opening to the main entry hall. This grand home of over 5,000 square feet pulls out all the stops. Immediately upon entering, there is a formal reception room with rich wood paneled wainscotting, built-ins, a hidden wet bar, and a gas-burning fireplace that creates an intimate gathering place for guests. This elegant home has thirteen chandeliers, beginning in the main entry. On the first floor, you will also find an office/library featuring wood columns at the threshold, a beautiful staircase with antique finials and a custom-made stair runner from Belgium with brass hardware, a full marble bath with a walk-in shower, a laundry room with folding area, wet sink, and cabinetry, an oversized coat closet, followed by a back hallway to the double-car garage with epoxy floors, a bonus room, and an elevator. After ascending the stately staircase, you will encounter a charming, European-style atrium flooded with sunlight from the three skylights that can take you through French glass doors to the dining room or kitchen. The enormous, south-facing chef's kitchen with three oversized windows, wood floors, gleaming white/glass cabinets, stunning marble countertops that remind you of artic ice with tinges of blue, new commercial appliances (Viking, Subzero, wine and beverage cooler), walk-in pantry and two crystal chandeliers. When entering the formal dining room, you will immediately notice the majestic lead crystal chandelier, a marble mantle, wood burning fireplace, and wood floors. Around the corner, you will see a beautifully appointed powder room with crown molding and another stunning chandelier. Completing the second floor is a grand living room that boasts a 14' high ceiling with elaborate crown molding, another wood-burning fireplace with a hand-carved Carrera marble mantle, a floor-to-ceiling built-in curio cabinet, and the beginning of those famous cathedral windows made of solid mahogany and approved by the Historical Society.

Up the turned staircase, you will pass a stained glass window, pass under another lead glass chandelier, and be facing the primary suite. The entrance to the primary suite has double doors that are seven and a half feet tall and open to a primary suite decorated with two large crystal chandeliers, floor-to-ceiling cathedral windows, fourteen-foot ceilings with crown molding, and wood floors. This ensuite encompasses an enormous walk-in closet with wood shelving and crown molding. The spa-like bathroom boasts another crystal chandelier, a hand-crafted copper soaking tub, a heated Toto toilet, a large walk-in marble shower with marble tiled wainscotting, and a double sink vanity. After leaving the primary suite, you will pass through double French doors into the remaining third floor containing two bedrooms and another marble bath with an oversized walk-in shower and heated Toto toilet.

This home boasts four new HVAC systems, a new 50-year rubber roof, two separate walk-in basements with tons of storage room, and an elevator that travels from the basement to the rooftop. This home is turnkey and will delight even the most discerning buyer.
