Entering onto the private street, 10 Welwyn, originally known as “The Farm at Welwyn”, is perched overlooking its own 3+ acres. This property was built in 1940 by Mr. Richard Norris Williams, survivor of the Titanic and winner of Wimbledon Mens’ Doubles in 1920.
The covered walkway supported by large white pillars leads to the mahogany arched front door. The main entrance has a gallery hall with three sets of double doors granting access to the private patio that travels behind the entire back exterior of the home. To the left, you will find the attached 3-car garage with storage space and entrance to the den above the garage. This spacious den has high ceilings, a private balcony overlooking the pool, and a full bathroom. Currently used as a home office, this space can easily be transitioned into an in-law suite. Retreating to the main entrance gallery hall, three hanging chandeliers light the way past the first powder room to the remaining living spaces. The Kitchen, informal Dining Room, and Family Room create an open space for entertaining or simply enjoying the company of family. The Kitchen comes equipped with island overhang seating, skylight window, desk area, built-ins and stainless steel appliances including: Miele built-in dishwasher, Insinkerator split sink, Thermador 5-burning stove top, two Thermador ovens, and built-in Subzero fridge to match the surrounding off-white colored cabinetry. The Family Room has a wood-burning fireplace, high ceilings, and a door to side/front yard to enjoy the home's tranquil privacy. The informal Dining Room has seating for six to fit comfortably and branches off the Mudroom. The Mudroom has built-in storage and hangers, skylight windows, tile flooring, and leads to the front driveway.
The formal Dining Room can seat eight guests under the elegant chandelier, perfect for entertaining as it branches off the Kitchen and naturally flows into the Living Room. The Living Room is dressed with hardwood flooring, wood-burning fireplace with mahogany trim and spotlight lighting that compliments the natural light brought in by the three large doors that access the back patio. A cozy reading area is placed between two large built-in bookcase shelves.
The Primary Suite can be found on the main level behind double doors that open to the spacious layout with a renovated bathroom, walk-in closet, and private entrance to the backyard patio. The Primary Bathroom has a dual head walk-in shower, separate Kohler soaking tub, Kohler double sink with built-in storage, vanity, and walk-in closet with wrap around wood shelving. An additional Bedroom and full bathroom finish the main level.
A spiral staircase next to the Primary Suite leads to the second floor bedrooms, perfect for families who would like privacy but still remain close to their children. The second level has four bedrooms and a Great Room for entertaining and lounging. Three of the bedrooms on the second level have an en-suite bathroom while the fourth bedroom utilizes the hallway bath. The third level was added as a playroom, complete with hardwood flooring, high ceilings, and three closets with built-in storage.
The luxurious full basement is finished and ready to entertain. The bar has plenty of storage, island with overhang seating, and built-in appliances including a U-line ice maker, U-line minifridge, GE dishwasher, and GE microwave. Take a step down into the billiard room with recessed ceiling, detailed trim, and arched doorway to the temperature controlled wine cellar that is constructed of bricks from the original back yard patio. Two large pillars separate the billiard room from the lounging area with fireplace, sitting area, and access to the backyard patio and pool. Continuing through the basement, you will find a ping-pong table room, gym, full bathroom, cedar wood closet, and laundry room.
