Winding through wooded groves and across a burbling stream, the private drive to 823 Hillside Road provides an almost fairytalesque entrance to this hidden Brooklandville estate. Withdrawn from the bustle of town yet just minutes from the confluence of I83 and I695, this secluded locale boasts an impeccably renovated and seamlessly expanded circa 1876 Victorian farmhouse. Using the finest level of craftsmanship and top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes throughout, 823 Hillside Road reveals breathtaking yet accessible interiors designed with meticulous attention to detail.
Lushly landscaped gardens frame the steps leading up to the covered porch and entry into the wide, two-story Foyer with a full-width banister overlook. A wide portal opens into the bright Dining Room which leads into the long Gallery, enjoying two sets of French doors to the stunning, new Redwood pergola deck. The adjacent Living Room features a wood burning fireplace flanked by two glazed doors to the wonderfully inviting “living porch,” a covered exterior living room with a fireplace perfect for cool evenings. A separate exit door leads to the gardens and a pocket door reveals a convenient first floor Guest Suite with a private Bath. Continuing down the Gallery, light flows in from additional French doors at the kitchen vestibule which boasts a built-in walnut bar with a marble top and leads into the expansive and magazine-worthy gourmet Kitchen.
Completely renovated in 2018, this incredible custom space features extensive wood cabinetry, honed leathered granite counters, professional grade appliances, a large island with a breakfast bar, and a spacious breakfast area with a separate seating space in front of a raised corner fireplace. A wide portal leads into the adjoining Family Room, also completely renovated in 2018, which features a gorgeous stacked stone chimney wall and abundant natural light from windows and French doors to a private side patio. An adjacent Mudroom provides a window seat with storage, a pantry, and access to the newly remodeled cloak room with custom cabinetry, a powder room, and a three-car Garage.
A hall at the top of the stairs on the second level leads into a comfortable Study with built-in cabinetry and a window seat and provides access to the Master Bedroom Suite. This expansive, resort-like space features a vaulted ceiling, fireplace, French doors to a private balcony, and an attached marble Spa Bath with a shower stall and jetted soaking tub. Double doors open into the Dressing Room, boasting an island, extensive racks and shelving and leads into the adjoining Office/Exercise Room. The second level also enjoys three additional en-suite Bedrooms (one with a fireplace and private deck looking out over the grounds) and a Laundry Room.
A staircase from the family room vestibule leads down into the walk-out lower level. This expansive space enjoys a Recreation Room with a wall of custom cabinetry and shelving, a fireplace, an attached Billiard Room with two built-in snack bars, a Game Room, and a Bath.
The stunning, professionally landscaped grounds surrounding the home begin with a gorgeous, wisteria covered pergola deck and lead out into the large, flat yard accented by old growth and specimen trees, a peony planting bed with a stone garden wall from 1860 and steps to a fenced-in pool area with a salt water pool. Enjoying 3.16 acres in this tranquil setting, skillfully renovated with best-in-class techniques and design, 823 Hillside Road is a truly spectacular luxury estate.
