Ascot's features take you back in time
Brick walls and half-timbering in the gables would be enough to establish the Ascot's (332-043) Tudor styling. But massive medieval chimneys, ribbons of small paned windows, and an oriel window at center on the second floor complete the image.
Once inside, you are clearly in present time. A large kitchen packed with modern conveniences is at the heart of the Ascot. Features include double ovens, microwave, dishwasher, walk-in pantry, and an island with a cook top and grill. Breakfasting in the sunny octagonal nook starts your day on a cheerful note.
Formal dining takes place in the spacious vaulted dining room. A second floor balcony overlooks this bright space, and French doors open onto a dining deck.
The elegant lobby is also vaulted. Stairs here lead to a second floor landing with a railed balcony facing the entrance. A small den or office is to the left, and a stately vaulted living room with fireplace is to the right.
Stairs in the lobby are not the only access to the second floor, by the way. Another staircase is in the family room with basement stairs are below. A unique set of doors in this area open to the kitchen, garage, utility room, powder room and master suite, all at the same time.
A garden spa is the most striking feature of the sumptuous owners' suite. Tropical plants will thrive in this moist, bright environment. Other amenities include an enclosed toilet and oversized shower, his and hers walk-in closets, and twin basins in an extra long vanity.
Storage space and three more bedrooms are upstairs. Each has a large walk-in closet. The back bedroom is intended for use as a guest suite, but could be a den or office. It is larger and has a private bath with two basins.
Occupants of the other two bedrooms will have to share a bathroom, but what a bathroom! How luxurious it feels to bathe in a tub nestled into the nook created by the diamond-paned windows in the oriel-style projection.
