Stunning Home in Sought After Fairview Neighborhood.
Meticulously designed with attention to every detail, finished in gorgeous materials and soothing palette make this stunning home a showpiece inside and out. Located in the beautifully planned neighborhood of Oakwood Estates. This neighborhood of impressive homes is set in an area of Fairview with streets that amble around curves and over hills through established old growth trees. The drive up to 651 Oakmont Ct. does not disappoint. The home has a grand and welcoming front entry with a circular front drive. The wings of the home stretch both directions with interesting setbacks and angles. The sparkling windows are set in a field of Lueders Limestone, accented boldly, and bordered with a neutral warm red brown brick. The stone is highlighted on the front peaks at the entrance and accented with the brick that completes the surround. The front highest roof peaks are hipped in a way that is reminiscent of a Tudor style. The home sits on a corner lot allowing for wonderful views from a 180-degree vantage point. The landscaping lets the home shine with a feel that is casually naturalized and elegant. The curved front park and side entry to the garages lend to a welcoming feel with the backyard remaining very private.
Once inside the entry of double iron scrollwork doors you find yourself in a gallery hall. Formal spaces are immediately visible and the gallery hall extends deep to the back of the home with well-planned lighting and art niches for drama and definition. Sharply dressed for simple elegance, the interior is set in tones of warm white, taupe, and ivory with accents in warm charcoal brown. The floors are a continuous surface of richly stained and finished, charcoal brown hardwoods. Modern and rustic architectural elements, arched openings, heavy wood beam trusses, are a counterpoint to the luxurious treatments, beautifully trimmed circular tray ceilings, flying buttresses, and luxury lighting. Through the contrasts this home achieves perfect harmony. Natural marble, porcelain tiles, and granite are showcased and shine in modern clean line settings. Wide white base boards set off the subtle and soothing neutral wall palette. Sparkling and dramatic lighting fixtures balance both worlds and are placed perfectly. Through the end of the front gallery hall a far wall of floor the ceiling window is visible. The expansive windows overlook water views and rolling green lawns that add sparkle and invite the outdoors in, giving the space a wonderful sense of balance and serenity.
From the entry landing, enter the study through double French doors. The room is formal and private yet comfortable and inclusive to the rest of the home. Accented with beam detail ceiling, clean bold trim work, and large arched window to front yard views, the study is formal and private. There is a built-in along the back wall of custom clean line furniture finish cabinetry. Storing essentials is easy with closed cabinetry below and open shelves above, stained in a warm deep charcoal brown stain.
Right of the entry is the home’s formal dining room. Three large front facing windows with transoms fill the room with light. The warm neutral wall color and richly stained hardwoods are contrasted with a wide crisp white baseboard. The room feels open and welcoming. Above a singular centered buttress treatment is a lovely counterpoint to a square set chandelier. The unique hanging fixture illuminates with multiple strands of cascading crystal drops. With interesting and perfectly placed details at every turn, this space is formal and comfortable at the same time.
Adjoining the dining room is the walk-through butler pantry. The hall passage butler pantry has built in wall cabinetry, with glass cabinetry for stemware display, granite countertop, and closed cabinet storage below. Opposite the butler’s pantry is a wine bar area. The wine room has gorgeous built in closed storage, glass door cabinetry, stemware hanging storage, and a full size built in Sub Zero wine chiller.
The home is exceptionally well designed for elegant entertaining. The far wall of the dining room is open to another room currently being used as the music room. Enter through a graceful wide arched opening, the music room makes for a lovely space for visiting before or after dinner. With large front facing windows for natural light and a well shelved and well-lit closet, this versatile space could easily be converted to a bedroom for larger families.
Back through the front entry gallery hall you reach the home’s great room. At the end of the entry there is a hallway leading to either wing of the home. The hallway runs perpendicular to the entry hall and serves to divide the front formal rooms from the family areas with its visual definition. The ceiling is detailed with an adapted flying buttress treatment along the length of the hallway.
Through the triple arched passages, the family room opens before you with views to the backyard and pool area. Heavily beamed trusses and a smooth stone slab fireplace that extends from floor to ceiling adds weight, warmth, and drama. Flanking the fireplace are two alcoves with warm dark cabinetry built-ins. One side has display shelving and the other a low modern banquet for entertainment above. The room is spacious and has a wall of concertina doors so the whole wall opens to the outdoor living area.
At the opposite end of the great room is the kitchen. The huge island bar backs to the living area creating a generous space to entertain large groups and holiday gatherings. The cook space is open and set at the opposite end of the room from the fireplace wall and takes full advantage of the natural light and outside views from the massive windows. This kitchen is appointed for any master chef to feel at home. Full luxury appliance suite is an understatement. At center stage a Wolf 6-burner range with grill sit atop double ovens, along another wall the side by side Sub Zero gleams against a wall of gorgeous cabinetry. The cabinets in the kitchen surround and island are a deep charcoal brown with wonderful taupe granite countertops. Undercabinet lighting shows off a modern set plank tile backsplash in warm slate grey tones. Open to the kitchen and adjacent to the living area is the breakfast nook. The comfortable circular space sits along the back of the home with pool yard access and views. It is a lovely space with its own dramatic floor to ceiling enclosed gas fireplace and a bay wall of floor to ceiling windows.
The outdoor living space is behind the breakfast room and great room. From the living area, the stunning wall of concertina doors open for uninterrupted living space. Remote control screens allow for this to be an all-season option. A large covered porch between the home and pool is a beautiful spot any time of year with high ceiling fans, wonderful views every direction, and a gorgeous and dramatic fireplace. The fireplace is integrated with entertainment and has a deep shelf at mantel height. The outdoor kitchen area and entertainment wall are of the home’s exterior brick. Steps down to the pool deck are along the whole of the back patio. The raised stone beds and curving steps create levels adding character and interest. The natural stone and curving lines blur the divide and create a natural flowing transition between home and outdoor spaces. The sparkling pool has a waterfall feature of large boulders and a drop ledge against the back edge. The raised spa area with light and water sounds offer a feast for the senses year round. There are several seating areas around the pool and sun deck.

Open through double doors, the game room is just around the corner from the breakfast nook and opposite the laundry area. The generous room is outfitted with windows to the backyard living spaces and pool area. With plenty of room for a tournament sized pool table, seating, and a bar, this room is ready for fun! Through a connecting archway is the Media room. Dramatic tray ceiling and lighting sets a stage for a night at the movies. A huge equipment closet stores everything you need and then some.
Continuing down the hall from the game room, you find yourself in a dramatic vestibule with a staircase to the upper rooms. The vestibule is an intersection of halls and entry areas. The center point from the garage / mudroom entry, a passage to the front bedroom and butler’s pantry area, and the hall along the back from the game room meet here. Detailed with a circular tray ceiling set with a stunning light fixture this back hall feels anything but overlooked. The stairs are elegant and flair wider at the base for a dramatic and formal feel. The wooden stair treads, dark handrail and iron spindles make a dramatic contrast against white trim and warm neutral light walls. At the top of the stairs there is a huge playroom, a lovely full bath and a large bedroom. The playroom has vaulted ceilings, dormered windows for natural light, and two closets making it a possible second upstairs bedroom.
This home is exceptionally well designed with separation of spaces in mind. The bedrooms are well separated for privacy and peace for raising children of multiple ages, house guests, or multi-generational living.
Returning to the downstairs, continue along the back of the home past the great room fireplace. The stunning master suite is awash with light and peaceful seclusion. The rich and warm wood floors continue and this room is elegantly scaled with a curved wall of windows to the pool yard. A soaring trayed ceiling and deep trim treatments make an impressive statement. Comfort and elegance abound and a lovely fireplace makes a focal point centered on a long wall.

Two more bedrooms share a hall at the front of the home just behind the study. The hall leading to these bedrooms is home to a workstation. The desk is built into a corner of the hall between the two bedrooms. This is a great command center for handling the scheduling of a busy household. The bedrooms are exceptionally large, have front facing windows, large walk in closets, and full en suite baths. Each vanity is outfitted with luxury stone tops and ample cabinetry.
The fourth first floor bedroom is accessed through a hall behind the butler’s pantry and off the stair vestibule.
