A two-phase addition between 2006-2008 added the master suite extension and built a new living room/den, as this home was meticulously transformed into a modern, loft-like gem with an industrial feel and unlike any other in the world. First impressions are met with curb appeal galore as colorful gardens accent the prominent facade of the front entry. The dramatic entry is truly unique, created by a local architect and constructed of three platforms, which are cantilevered overhangs, supported by steel beams and wrapped by zinc panels. Not only does this present as an architectural gem that jets out to greet you, but also protects the entry atrium from the elements. The entry atrium, accented by custom stained-glass panels, welcomes you inside the grand foyer as an open concept floor plan begins to unfold with delightful views of the home’s upper and lower levels. Soaring ceilings stretch high above as stainless-steel railings accent the staircase for a sleek finish, inviting you to step up and explore the home’s main level.
Prepare to be amazed as the formal living room welcomes you with unparalleled design. Abundant natural light streams through walls of large windows encircling the beautiful space as a sweeping vaulted ceiling adds a feeling of expansiveness. All eyes will be drawn to dramatic roof lines bisected diagonally at an angle and reaching towards the sky, supported by exposed beams and high accent windows letting in delightful shimmers of light. A wood burning fireplace, with a floor to ceiling brick surround, provides a cozy place to gather on chilly nights.
The living room transitions seamlessly into the bright and spacious, open concept dining room as the gleaming hardwood floors continue to shine. Walls of dramatic windows offer delightful views of the peaceful, wooded landscape beyond. Sliding glass doors spill out to the expansive deck and rear courtyard as another set of sliding doors on the opposite side of the room open to the screened porch perfect for enjoying the summer breeze. The dining room connects seamlessly with the centrally located kitchen, creating the perfect space for comfortable living and entertaining.
The open plan, gourmet kitchen is truly the heart of the home, designed with function in mind and guaranteed to inspire your inner chef. The stunning kitchen is full of contemporary flair and features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, a center island with cooktop and modern pendant lighting above, breakfast bar seating, two sinks, an elevated dishwasher for easy loading, a warming drawer, a beverage chiller, stylish cabinetry, a desk area with overhead shelving, a skylight, recessed lighting, and ceramic tile floors. Sliding doors from the kitchen provide another great connection to the large deck, courtyard, and sprawling, private backyard beyond. Outdoor living is easy with the expansive deck or screened porch where many summer days will be spent relaxing and entertaining. Mature trees and perennial plantings surround the landscape with beauty and shade.
The first level continues to the bedroom wing, offering three family bedrooms perfectly placed within easy access of two beautifully appointed family bathrooms, and further flows to the expanded and unique master suite. The generous bedrooms are full of natural light, one with carpeting and the others with hardwood floors, and ample closets for storage. Surround yourself with luxury in the spectacular master suite retreat, meticulously designed and added to the home during the renovation and extension. A private hallway of large windows flows to the master suite as a sliding glass door connects with a covered area of the deck, which continues to span the home. An efficient laundry room is located in the bedroom wing for added convenience.
The master bedroom stuns with a soaring vaulted ceiling mirroring the same dramatic roof lines of the living room, hardwood floors, a gas fireplace, a sunny corner nook of dramatic floor to ceiling windows, a ceiling fan, and a huge dressing area with a walk-in closet for the ultimate storage and organization.
