Inspired by the San Carlo alle Quattro Fontane in Rome, the new Bosov estate’s architecture admittedly does a decent impersonation of a baroque cathedral upon first glance. A gated and camera-watched driveway leads into a spacious motorcourt, and the pizza delivery person will be awestruck by the opulence of the entryway, where twin limestone exterior staircases curve around, meeting at a landing before the towering front door. Molded architectural flourishes are everywhere — no crack or cranny is overlooked — and the .69-acre hilltop lot additionally includes two wee patches of grassy lawn and a plunge pool with inset spa.
Inside, spaces include a living room with a vaulted ceiling and gilt-trimmed chandelier, a family room adjacent to a wet bar set in its own rotund room, a vaguely medieval library with a marble fireplace, and a gourmet kitchen with a restaurant-worthy array of pricey stainless appliances. There are no fewer than eight bedrooms and twelve bathrooms, and dozens of French doors open to various parts of the gardens. Outside, an array of mature trees and thick hedges surround the corner-lot property, imbuing the house with some much-needed privacy, though the structure is so tall and bulbous that it’s all but impossible to completely shield from public view.
Alla Furman and Rayni Williams, both of Hilton & Hyland, jointly held the listing; Lisa Sockolov and Sally Forster Jones of Compass repped the Bosovs.
