This large, sunny, 5 bedroom, 3.1 bathroom contemporary is set back from a cul-de-sac road in a neighborhood setting on 3 wooded acres, oriented to maximize appreciation of its natural setting, and perfect for a buyer looking for a property with distinctive style.
The home features hardwood floors throughout and a floor plan that flows well for daily living while offering the spaces required for family gatherings and other entertaining as well as multi-generational living. Generously-sized windows and recessed lighting bring natural and supplemental light into the rooms throughout the day. The entrance area welcomes guests and sets the tone of the sleek styling of this contemporary home by providing a vantage point for appreciating the central living space of the house — the oversized living room with soaring cathedral ceilings, exposed beams, stone front wood-burning fireplace, multiple sliding glass doors to a large deck along the back of the house, and hardwood floors. The entrance area connects to the living room, dining room, kitchen, and the lower level of the home. The large, front-to-back eat-in kitchen is oriented towards views of the natural beauty of the home’s sylvan setting. The eat-in kitchen features granite countertops, extensive custom cabinets, two islands, one with a breakfast bar and built in microwave, a 6-burner Thermador cooktop with a brushed nickel pot filler faucet, a Kitchenaid double oven, an LG stainless steel dishwasher, stainless steel double sink, under-cabinet lighting, tile backsplash, and sliders to the deck. There extensive custom cabinetry features glass paned cabinets, decorative plate holder, under-cabinet lighting, spacious counters with tile backsplashes, recessed lighting, and stone floor. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining room and connects to the central living space of the house. The dining room is scaled to accommodate a large dining table and furniture and features a high ceiling, chandelier, and windows overlooking the front yard. On the wing of the house opposite the entertaining spaces of the house — the living room, kitchen, dining room — are the more intimate spaces of the house — four of the five bedrooms, and powder room and two additional bathrooms. The master suite features sliders for deck access, two walk-in closets, a dressing area with granite counter topped sink and a large en suite bathroom with high ceilings, a jetted tub, and stall shower. The secondary bedrooms both feature closets, and plentiful natural light through the large windows. Located below is the family room, a bedroom, wet bar, laundry room and a full bathroom with a sauna. The family room is bright and spacious with room for a pool table and a separate area that can easily accommodate a large seating area, the expansive windows overlook the wooded backyard uniting the family room space with the rustic, natural setting of the home. The family room and bedroom both benefit from the full bathroom on this level with sauna, jetted tub and stall shower. There is also a large, tiled laundry room on this level with a sink, counter and cabinetry. Additional unfinished basement space provides plentiful room for storage and easy access to the mechanical systems of the house. The 2-car garage can be accessed from the finished basement and is complemented by a parking area at the side of the house near the access to the garage. The back of the house features a wooden deck overlooking the wooded backyard and is large enough for multiple gathering areas for dining or relaxing. Systems include natural gas-fired forced air heating, central air conditioning, central vacuum, 200 amp service, septic, and well water.
