Enter through the lovely solid wood door with glass insets and sidelights, and you’ll notice the elegant staircase that graces the front entry. The stairs are decked out in wood treads, painted risers, turned spindles, and stained handrails and newel posts. The entry is wide and inviting with soaring ceilings. Light from the high foyer window and the upstairs washes the space in a warm natural glow.
The roomy dining room is open to the front entry hall and awash with light through front facing windows. Walls are accented with a picture frame detailing under the chair rail. The well-appointed butler’s pantry with pass-through and wine room, separates the dining room from the living area. With bottle storage, granite countertops, a hammered copper sink, and closed cabinetry, this area is a well-planned and an elegant transition between the spaces. A side passage to the kitchen allows for ease of entertaining.
To the right of the entry, through a double French door, is the study. The room is private but feels open to the rest of the home. A large arched window faces the front yard and is outfitted with plantation shutters. Just outside of the study is the home’s half bath, which is beautifully done with grey blue Venetian plaster walls, beautiful porcelain floor, and pedestal sink.
Beyond the staircase you will enter the living room. The space before you has a wall of windows overlooking the backyard and sparkling pool. A floor to ceiling fireplace sits centered in the room between atrium doors and a large window. The stone is white chalk stacked and accented with a keystone design above the arched firebox. The hearth is integrated and out of the same stone topped with slab lueders. A wooden mantel shelf floats on the stone face. The space above the mantel shelf is wired for television. In this large living area, the ceiling is treated with a double stacked tray detail and a fan with lights is centered in the space.
The breakfast room is open to the living area through a wide cased opening. It is a lovely open space situated at the end of the kitchen with a bay wall of windows overlooking the patio and pool yard beyond. Over the table space is a lovely wrought iron chandelier with frosted glass shades.
This kitchen is sure to delight! Surrounding cabinetry sparkles in white with bronze hardware and granite countertops. The backsplash is a light neutral travertine with a bronze inset setting square accent. The center island sits center stage with a beautiful stone top and custom stainless hood over the four-burner range. The fully appointed chef’s kitchen is a dream to work in with an easy to clean ceramic cooktop, extra deep double bowl sink, oven and microwave stack in a very luxury appliance suite. The sink is situated in a corner with two sides of windows for great views to the front and side yards.
The master suite is located off the end of the living area. A short hall turns the corner into the master bedroom. This spacious and impressive room has views to the pool and an atrium door to the backyard from the sitting area. A bayed-out wing of the bedroom creates a separate sitting room perfect for morning coffee or a book in the afternoon.
Enter the huge, light, and bright spa bath. The master bath sparkles with light countertops on separate custom full wood cabinet vanities. Center stage, a large jacuzzi tub sits under a large window of distortion glass. White tile and glass surround make the huge shower sparkle. The master closet is easily accessed through double mirrored sliding doors. The closet is appointed with open shelf storage and generous amounts of hanging space.
Off the kitchen and breakfast room is access to the laundry room and mudroom hall, with garage access. At the end of the hall, behind its own door is the laundry room. The large laundry room has plenty of breathing space to tackle the tasks of a busy home. The floor is gorgeous in a Torreon 12×24 set railroaded. A modern curved stainless farmhouse sink, dark granite countertops, and light cabinetry make this a very pleasant space. A full atrium door to the outside functions as smart pool yard access. The laundry rooms generous cabinetry is convenient for towel storage.
An entry door across from the mudroom bench leads to three garage bays. One bay has a single door and the other two spaces have a double door entry. Along the front of the garage there is a window, so the large space is very pleasant with natural light.
Ascend the stairs and find yourself in the large game room. The wood floors are continued in the common rooms and upstairs bedrooms. The game room is large, wide, and has a vaulted ceiling with cedar beam detail. Windows to the backyard overlook the pool.
There are four more spacious bedrooms upstairs. One bedroom is off the game room with a glamourous en suite bath. The bath has Calcutta tile floor and porcelain tile walls at the back wall of the tub and shower with a frameless glass door. Two more bedrooms are on the corner of the game room and another wonderfully updated Jack and Jill bath is open to these bedrooms and the game room. The fourth upstairs room is at the far end and would also serve well as a playroom or nursery. Each room has large windows and well planned closets.
Traditional Victorian high slope roof lines are made modern with handsome metal roofing. Sharp contrast of the brick face and trim areas give the home a very modern feel surrounding large and expressive windows. The large yard features some old growth trees and nice expanse of lovely lush grass. The foundation is edged with flower beds and the home has a circular front approach driveway.
At the back of the home, you enter a totally private resort style pool with a large grass area and side yard. Hard decking surfaces are in concrete and paver stone. A raised spa tub sits above the pool at the far side, making it a lovely destination and focal point. The patio off the back of the home has a lovely and substantial cedar beamed pergola. The tiered tops are rounded for interest and the theme is repeated in a raised circular flower bed.
A fire pit and sitting area is behind the pool and a play yard is beyond that. Behind the play yard is an expanse of fenced pasture with a wooded creek along the back of the property. At the end of the driveway beyond the garage is the barn and paddocks.
This is a beautiful barn with copper cupolas. The barn is painted traditionally in a red with white trim.
