Description

This stunning house is reminiscent of a contemporary country villa in a valley of Tuscany, thanks to its combination of stone and stucco walls topped by a low–pitched tile roof. The circular stair tower is finished with stone and juts out from the more private front facade, while the rear provides expansive views with abundant glazed doors and windows.

The spacious front courtyard invites you into a private outdoor space with a fireplace in one corner and a covered porch that is detailed with wood posts and exposed rafters at the eave. After entering the foyer space you immediately see the gorgeous curved open staircase to your left, where the ceiling vaults to over 19' high. To your right, there is a parlor that the original homeowners used as a music room. Sliding glass doors in this room look out to the covered porch at the rear, while a pair of doors on the other side of the room open to the master bedroom suite. The large master bedroom features a 12' ceiling, and windows on two sides let in lots of natural light to the room. A central vestibule has a door to a huge walk–in closet with a stacked washer/dryer and two separate closet areas, as well as a pair of doors that open to the master bath. The master bath features a private toilet room, a shower, a separate tub that is set into a window bay, and two vanity sinks.

Straight ahead from the foyer is an open great room with a ceiling that is detailed with wood beams and vaults to over 19'. A centrally–located stone fireplace hearth warms up the room, and opposite it the entire outer wall is composed of glazed doors and full height windows that look out to the covered rear deck and the views beyond it. The deck wraps around the great room for multiple views, making it an ideal space for entertaining. High windows on the right side of the great room bring in additional sunlight while still providing wall space for furniture and artwork. The left side of the room is completely open to a spacious kitchen that has a 9' ceiling with exposed fir beams, and features a large center island with a cook top stove, a prep sink, and a breakfast bar. A small vestibule between the kitchen and foyer has a barrel–vaulted ceiling, and accesses a coat closet and a powder room. The kitchen is open to a sunny dining room that has a 12' high ceiling and glazing on three walls. The dining room opens on both sides – on one side there are sliding glass doors that open onto the wraparound covered deck, and on the other side a pair of glass doors opens onto a private covered deck with a fireplace – a wonderful way to extend the dining space and enjoy the open air!

The kitchen has an opening to a nook that would make an ideal space for a home office. From here, there is a door to a large walk–in pantry and an opening to a mudroom with space for closets and a bench. The mudroom accesses a three–car garage that is broken up into two spaces.

The curved open stairwell invites you to the upper floor where the landing opens up to a loft space. A short hallway to the left leads past a laundry to a bedroom with a large walk–in closet, three windows looking to the front of the house, and double doors opening to a small outdoor balcony. A second bedroom off the loft also has a walk–in closet, and it shares a bathroom with the first bedroom. Each has a private vanity sink outside the shared bathroom space. A third bedroom has views in two directions, a walk–in closet, and a private bath.

The optional basement provides an open recreation room with a wet bar, a fireplace, and sliding glass doors to the backyard patio. There is also room for a billiards area, a theater room, an exercise room, a guest suite, a full bath, and a mechanical room.
