We’ve been waiting a long time to bring this one to you. After more than 2 years, this house has finally come together – and what a result! While challenging, the results have been fantastic. As time has progressed – so has the vision. Changes along the way have added extensive landscaping and hardscaping outside with privacy walls, amazing blue-stone pavers, a mason fire-pit, imported antique fountain from Europe, brick planters, and brick outcroppings. The outdoor patio area includes custom built wood cased screens for hot summer days. From painted woodwork, extensive masonry both inside and out, reclaimed timbers spanning large distances, intricate tile work, and a floor plan that harkens back to a French countryside Manor, there are details to capture your attention around every corner. Inside you will find many details, including soapstone counter tops, touch sensitive faucets, amazing cabinetry and paint, intricate wainscoting, detailed faux painting on the bathroom wall, a heated Italian tile floor with stand alone claw foot tub, and amazing reclaimed timbers spanning large spacious rooms. Other interesting facts include two sets of washers and dryers at either ends of the home, a separate apartment upstairs with full kitchen, a four bay garage with a stamped concrete surface, and overlay appliance panels to hide their presence. The house features a stucco and stone exterior accented by copper gutters and a tile roof. Mix this with large decorative wood shutters and carefully selected light fixtures around the house and the pieces come together nicely.
Perhaps you have noticed the large dark cabinet adjacent to the fireplace by now. Purpose-built for a media system, those custom-made lead glass doors hide a large screen TV and sound system.
Throughout the house, electrical plugs were cut into the tall base board and painted to blend in. Just another detail that while not immediately evident, adds to the overall feeling of upscale, high quality craftsmanship.
If you enjoy cooking, this is the range for you. With a massive hood vent, 6 spacious burners, and an intricate tile back splash, preparing a gourmet meal becomes a whole lot easier. These cabinets are a step above most. Not only are they finger joint assembled, but also come with soft close rail systems and are flush mounted – no cabinet door sits on top of the frame, but rather in it. Separating the kitchen area from a desk work area and a small nook is a central pantry for dry goods storage. Wrapping around the pantry is a cabinet unit with a drawer mounted microwave. Opposite the desk area is a coat closet for guests. The desk area is perfect for light work at home with a great view out to the patio which features a built in fireplace. One thing that is evident from the exterior is that each window has a real stone sill.
The adjacent bedroom leaves nothing to be desired with a separate bathroom and large walk in closet.
Exercise Room: At the far end of the home lies the exercise room with cork flooring and a television to keep you occupied on the treadmill. More to come!
