There are words that ring a bell for those seeking to move into grand homes in cherished neighborhoods. These include: Ward Wellington Ward, architectural detail, floor plans offering designated private and gathering areas, updated kitchens, skylights and leaded glass and … Here is a property that passes all tests, that has it all; in fact, I think you will find that this estate home grants you surprises around every corner!

Hardwoods and tile enhance the fireplaced living room with its elegant bas-relief ceiling.

I like the fact that the cook/host can enjoy a striking work place as well as proximity to family and guests AND a great view of the outdoors. The room itself spotlights a built-in breakfast table, stainless steel appliances, wet bar, and ample counter and cabinet space. For times when more formality becomes the order of the day, a gracious dining room awaits with double sets of leaded glass French doors and windowed walls.

This enchanting 1929 Rococo-style home is entrenched in stories and history that goes back to WWI maps which chart the tour of the original owner, Leon Forgie, through France. I found it intriguing to see proudly displayed on the wall, hand-drawn signatures of 1900’s Rochester’s Who’s Who attendees at parties held here. Mr. Forgie who before returning to Rochester had been a furniture designer for The Hayden Company, envisioned and executed magnificent architectural touches throughout including hand-made iron bannisters, lighting fixtures and unique planters.

The home imagined, sketched and painted in water colors by Mr. Forgie while in France, was later embellished with accents he admired in a conference room at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Second homeowners, the Doctors Lowenguth, utilized their powerful drafting skills and first class team to exactingly create a modern lifestyle designed for entertaining on the first and lower levels. Friends and family move easily from indoors,…with its two expansive kitchens, eclectic breakfast nook, and alluring family room featuring French doors…to the inviting outdoor environment with patio, hot tub terraced gardens, enveloping grounds and forever views of greenery.

Artist glazing and faux painting, Scalamandre paper, and elaborate antique valances surround the grand entry and striking bridal staircase. Paneled living room with hidden compartments, historic book torches, and 18th century marble fireplace, master suite with to-die-for bedroom, knock-out master bath and dreamy dressing room are a few highlights of this nearly 5,000 square foot estate home which unlike any other, speaks to grandeur, riches and sophistication.
