291 Garden Drive

291 Garden Drive

Sherwood Country Club

Like a fine work of art that is rich in detail and rare in its beauty, 291 Garden Drive is well-known within the exclusive gated community of Sherwood Country Club for its architectural magnificence. With stunning vistas of dramatic ridgelines and ancient Oak trees, this one-of-a-kind custom masterpiece proudly sits upon an elevated promontory overlooking the 16th fairway while capturing the tranquilly, warmth, and idyllic charm of a traditional Cape Cod home in the Hamptons.

Designed by British-born architect Edward Carlson and shaped by a team of master craftsmen from Tyler Development, the 8,005 square foot floor plan is inviting, with the rooms flowing effortlessly into each other and spectacular views almost everywhere you look. Expert attention has been paid to the home’s every detail. From the exterior dormer windows, gables, and columns; to artisan crafted chandeliers that set-off beautifully fashioned coffered ceilings; to the liberal use of crafted wainscoting throughout the home, meticulous detailing and artistry have been utilized to orchestrate a spectacular custom residence.

The home’s kitchen has been graced with state-of-the-art appliances for epicurean inspiration. Abundant traditional antique glazed white beadboard cabinets and beautiful hand-hewn wood flooring play counterpoint to the glimmering Walker Zanger counter tiles, while exquisite functionality is added with the generously-sized center island that features a rare Azul Bahia marble counter. Supplying contour to the room are wall cabinets trimmed with dentil crown molding and finished with recessed lighting to provide subtle illumination for the coffered ceilings. The kitchen offers the additional conveniences of a large butler’s pantry complete with a chef’s work station, and an adjoining octagonal breakfast alcove opening to a terrace for al fresco dining.

Where conversation and relaxation can be shared, a game of billiards enjoyed, or a drink at the bar, there’s a spacious great room that offers casual style with just a touch of elegance. Rich in detail, this dramatic room is anchored by a striking floor-to-ceiling river rock fireplace flanked by handsome milled knotty pine cabinetry. Impressive wood beams with decorative corbels cross the double-height vaulted ceiling, and the room’s walls are lined with multiple French doors to breathe in the beauty of the outdoors while allowing easy access to a covered patio with recessed heating, verdant gardens and view-terraces.

A sweeping grand staircase and elevator transports you to the upstairs living quarters, home to a handsome family room/second library. This room has been distinctively crafted using rich milled knotty pine, French doors that open to a private balcony. The room is completed by an adjacent alcove that surrounds you with picturesque views.

Behind privacy doors the master bedroom suite, with its plush sculpted carpeting and relaxing color palette, offers a variety of luxurious indulgences. Bask in the warmth of the sun while lounging on the private balcony, or curl up with a good book by the fireplace in the suite’s private sitting area. And at the end of the day let your tensions melt away with a steam shower and a deep-soak in the whirlpool tub.

The expansive terraced rear grounds offer panoramic views that extend as far as the eye can see. Manicured lawns are accented by mature Sycamore, Birch and Oak trees while the fragrance from the sublime English garden of Azaleas, Roses, Lavender, Hydrangeas, and Irises fills the air on a fresh spring day. The infinity pool and spa dramatically accentuates the property’s seamless flow into the 16th fairway creating a spectacular setting for your own private oasis.

This custom Sherwood Country Club home seamlessly merges grace and refinement with comfort and charm. 291 Garden Drive embraces the California lifestyle while boldly carrying on the reputation and style of the classic Cape Cod home.
