Home Details for 173 South St

104 Days on Trulia
173 South St The indisputable Empress of South Street, this fine 1904 Colonial Revival, affectionately known as “Forked Chimneys,” was designed by Ehrick R. Rossiter. It is the quintessence of the turn of the century gracious and sophisticated country house and is redolent of Rossiter’s fine style both inside and out. Its formal and monumental but simple composition is apparent at once in the white stuccoed exterior, neatly presented in perfect tripartite symmetry, and crowned with handsome copper roofing. While replete with historical significance, the majesty of Forked Chimneys does not pree...mpt the ultimate in comfort and convenience; the most leading-edge and innovative enhancements and amenities are prevalent throughout the house. The main entry features a large paneled Dutch door surmounted by a glass transom made by Louis Comfort Tiffany. The central hall is spacious and breathtaking: handsome parquet floors compliment the double landing stairway festooned with fine Rossiter turnings and ornamentation. Off the central hall on the right is a formal living room which can be confined by means of massive pocket doors. An ornate mantel bedecks a large fireplace, and the room is circumscribed above with fine crown molding and dentil flourishes. This room leads into a billiard room, paneled with fine, rich mahogany, and this in turn leads to the formal dining room with an extraordinary coffered ceiling. To the left off the central hall is a music room with fireplace and a cherry paneled wet bar. These rooms lead to an elegant library, with original and beautifully wrought woodworking, including fine dentil work that adorns the fireplace. The colossal kitchen is flooded with southern light and its fulcrum is a magnificent, curved center island. Its open and airy design is stunning, and its sheer scope and appointments provide the capstone of practical efficiency. It also accommodates a large dining area and TV/sitting room. A full bath, pantry, laundry, and butler’s pantry are located off the kitchen near the back stairway to the upstairs chambers. The upstairs is as airy and gracious as below. The master suite includes a fireplace and a substantial dressing room with ample walk-in closets with built-in shelves and cubbies of all kinds. The master bath offers luxurious radiant heat in the marble floor. A media room and a laundry are included in this domain. There are two additional large and gracious bedrooms, en suite, on the second level. The third floor is enchanting; as you climb the stairs, look up, and you will discover another treasure: a Tiffany skylight imbues the stairwell with light and opulence and historical eminence. Three darling bedrooms, tucked into the dormers, two full baths, and a cozy sitting room complete this charming and quaint level. The exterior offers a large deck, terracing, a fountain, and an oversized pool and spa. The formal gardens are professionally landscaped
