Description

Tucked away in an enclave of only four homes, this contemporary is thoughtfully designed. The structure is enhanced and surrounded by its natural wooded setting. Architecturally unique, every room looks out on a setting that will relax your spirit. Think of a vacation hideaway way, but within minutes of everything you need. Two two-story Living room windows rise high to touch the roof line. The wet bar in the living room is replete with everything you need for cocktail party entertaining. The half-moon window design is repeated throughout the house. The kitchen and two-story high family room with clear-story windows adjoin for open togetherness. It is a marriage complete with a full wall wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-ins. a glass door lead to a 22 x 10 deck overlooking a woodsy setting. The breakfast nook off the kitchen is the perfect transition. On the second floor, the main bedroom and private bath with vaulted ceilings in both, gives one time and space alone to reflect. The far side of the second floor houses three more bedrooms and a full bath with a skylight. But now, do you need space for an in-law? Perhaps an au pair? Or maybe you need an at home office? The lower level is the full footprint of the house. It is huge. As it is now, there is an entertainment area with a gas burning stove, an office area with built-ins, a workshop and full bath. This space has been configured so that a kitchenette is possible. It can be accessed privately without going into the main residence. Make this home what you will, but make it your own and enjoy comfortable living.
