THE GUEST HOUSE FIRST TIME ON THE MARKET IN 64 YEARS! THE OASIS IN THE CITY! This radiant estate, comprising a Main Residence (2935 Albemarle -- see separate listing) and the Guest House (2931 Albemarle), which also features an apartment with private entrance, is the ideal retreat. Featuring soaring ceilings and entertainment spaces galore, the guest house has all the "bells and whistles". The breathtaking Conservatory, with soaring 16' ceilings, antique, European tile flooring and 7 sets of French doors, opens to a central courtyard between the two homes where dining, living and entertaining of any scale unfold. There is a stunning living room with a wood burning fireplace, access through french doors to the central courtyard, a bay window and views of the vegetable garden and greenhouse. An eat-in kitchen overlooks the pool and expansive, fully landscaped and irrigated rear gardens where the heated swimming pool and gazebo may be found. Two bedrooms with en suite baths, laundry and a powder room are located a few steps down the main level hall. Below and on grade, the garden level offers a Palm Beach inspired cabana area with changing rooms, fitness center, wet bar, full bathroom and laundry. In addition on this level, a separate entrance invites bedroom three to become a private guest suite with full bathroom and kitchenette. Please view the Main Residence -- 2935 Albemarle as the properties are sold together for $7,295,000. Each home was designed and built in 1956 for the current owners' parents and grandparents. The sumptuous English gardens that unite the two homes were conceived in 1985 by the distinguished landscape architect Jane MacLeish. The present owner grew up on site, and in 2001 reoccupied the property as an adult with the plan to re-imagine it. Led by Richard Arentz, the gardens were expanded while noted architect Richard Williams re-envisioned the main residence and guest house to take on their present configurations. Peterson and Collins executed the construction with masterful attention to materials and craftsmanship. Every detail has been considered and every modern convenience and efficiency introduced including: an elevator in the main residence, geothermal and solar energy, recirculating hot water and Lutron Homeworks lighting are a few examples. The estate is "one of a kind" offering a timeless sense of grace, extraordinary privacy and an unparalleled expanse of enchanting gardens -- 1.25 acres -- in a location with easy access to conveniences, restaurants and Metro.
