Perched high on Goodwives River Road, this custom-designed Colonial offers coveted water views of Gorham Pond from nearly every room.

The house, designed by architect Robert Cardello, features an unparalleled design from top to bottom.

From the rare imported mahogany wood used throughout to the Italian Calacatta marble, the home doesn't skimp on details or materials.

An oversized mahogany door gives entry to the 4,000-square-foot home.

A seamless open floor plan features an octogonal-shaped family room with soaring vaulted bead board ceilings, an oversized limestone fireplace and two walls of floor-to-ceiling windows.

The family room is the heart of the home offering an elegant yet comfortable space for both entertaining and everyday living. Bathed in natural light, the space has access to a private terrace with a Pergola-covered hot tub overlooking Gorham's Pond.

A recessed wet bar features mahogany double doors faced with mercury glass exuding a New York City vibe. Although it may be the smallest room in the house, the wet bar doesn't skimp on details, ranging from its custom copper chandelier to its copper-mesh faced cabinetry to copper vessel sink and faucet. It has two SubZero refrigerated drawers in addition to a wine refrigerator and icemaker.
