A tailored front elevation creates a seamless transition from the traditional architecture of Wesley Heights to the 21st century aesthetic of Three on Cathedral.

A light-filled gathering room with adjoining office, large mudroom and informal and formal powder rooms complete the main level.
Upstairs is the primary suite with dual dressing rooms and luxurious bath with soaking tub, separate shower and double vanities clad in marble with waterfall sides. Four secondary bedrooms with en suite baths and dramatic ceiling heights, and secondary laundry room complete the upstairs level. One bedroom works easily as upstairs office or den with huge corner windows and flush-mounted closet doors.

A wine cellar with arched steel and glass entry door is the focal point upon descending the floating staircase to this level.
