Description

This luxurious home has fine wood finish and trim work throughout the interior spaces, creating an atmosphere that feels warm and rustic. The curved stone veneer wall, where the open stairwell is located, rises from the lower roofs, and gives the house a distinctive appearance.

The covered front porch is large enough to hold furniture, so you can relax and enjoy the front views. The entry foyer is wide and generous, with a 10' ceiling and an open curved stairwell to the right. The curved stairwell allows an open semi–circle, which is open to all three levels, if you choose to build the basement level. As you walk to the living areas at the rear, you pass a powder room on your left, and a formal dining room on your right. The dining room has a nook for built–ins/cabinetry, and a door to a covered deck that wraps all the way around the great room. Like all the rooms on this level except the great room, the ceiling is set at a lofty 10'. The living areas are all open to each other, so that you have views into all the spaces, which are framed and delineated to the eye by wooden posts.

Across from the dining room is a beautiful built–in bar with a wrap–around counter, which is conveniently located next to the open gourmet kitchen and a large walk–in pantry. The kitchen is very spacious, and includes a large center island with a sink on top that has plenty of room for casual eating and/or serving on the far end, and provides plenty of additional counter and cabinet space. Sinks in the corner are set beneath windows that look out to both the side and the grill area in a covered portion of the rear deck. If an operable window is installed, things can be passed between the grill and the kitchen.

A sliding door from the kitchen opens into a large mudroom that includes a laundry area, closet spaces, and a powder room. One door opens to the rear of the house, while another opens to a four–car garage with plenty of room for a workshop, if needed.

A hearth room is located between the kitchen and the great room. An optional two–sided fireplace with wide angled windows on either side is at the far end, facing the open portion of the rear deck. There's another wide window that looks out to the covered grill area. A glass door on one side of the hearth room opens to the grill area, while another on the opposite side provides access to the open deck area and the covered section next to it.

The dramatic great room is located a couple of steps down from the rest of the living area. It has a vaulted ceiling – rising from 16' to 19'6" – with exposed wood beams, and a corner fireplace that spans the two–story height of the room. Both outer walls of the great room are completely filled with picture windows topped by transom windows, so views and natural light are abundant. Railings on either side are the only separations between the great room and both the dining room and the hearth room.

The upper floor landing opens into a large loft space, which would be ideal as a place for study or play. Bedrooms 2 and 3 are located off of the loft space, and each has its own private full bath and walk–in closet. Bedroom 2 has a vaulted ceiling and views to the side, while Bedroom 3 has a 10' ceiling and a bumped–out space with a built–in seat beneath a pair of windows. As you go down the hall towards the master suite, you pass a full bath and a laundry room on your left, and just beyond the door to Bedroom 4 on your right there's a balcony with views to the great room below. The master bedroom is quite spacious, and it has a vaulted ceiling that angles to the two far corners. A three–sided bay has windows in two sections, and a glass door in the third that opens to a private deck. Sliding doors open into a long master bath, with a Jacuzzi tub in one corner beneath windows on either side, a separate shower in the other corner, two vanities, a private toilet room, and a huge walk–in closet with a pass–thru to the laundry room.

As you descend the stairs to the lower level, you pass a study that is located at the mid–landing. This room has a 10' ceiling, and a total of five windows facing the front and side. The lower level has a guest bedroom, a large office with a closet and an optional fireplace in one corner, an exercise room, a full bath with a private sink area and a full–size sauna, and an open recreation room with a wet bar and a fireplace. There is also additional storage space, and even a vault space off of the storage room.
