Property Description

This distinctive home, just eight miles from downtown, yet nestled in some of the most picturesque and private surroundings available in the city is life affirming on a daily basis. Thoughtful design, inspired by the architecture of Hugh Newell Jacobsen (see more in Documents), such as the extraordinary use of natural light via generous glass doors, skylights, and floor-to-ceiling windows make every day easier to enjoy. The windows work both ways so you'll be able to see nature at its best. Nine and ten-foot ceilings throughout plus vaulted ceiling in living room with custom cabinetry, specially lit artwork wall, and dramatic floor-to-ceiling fieldstone chimney with Renaissance Rumford 1500 zero-clearance fireplace. Entertaining here is easy given the feast-for-the-eyes both inside and out. Beautiful hardwood floors refinished in 2010. Well-appointed first floor primary bedroom suite with dressing room containing five double closets and two built in chests. Whirlpool tub, walk-in shower, tall vanities in primary bath. Bedroom adjacent to first floor primary bedroom could be used as a sitting room. Likely the most used part of the house is its completely remodeled chefs kitchen and hearth room with innovative use of gorgeous reclaimed hardwood countertops and barnwood siding combined with natural-feeling textured granite countertops. Tall, elegantly windowed shaker cabinets mixed with shiplap ceiling and subway tile backsplash. Hearth room also has shiplap and custom cabinets with builtĀ­in desk, drawers, and "tech-garage" where you can hide your printers, scanners, and supplies while they remain conveniently accessible. This space is kept cozy with a gas-log fireplace custom built from reclaimed bricks. Appliances installed in 2010: Wolf double ovens, 6-burner stove, and warming drawer, Subzero stainless fridge/freezer and additional 2-drawer fridge (great for salad fixins, fruit, and kids drinks), Miele super-quiet dishwasher, and KitchenAid 2-drawer dishwasher (to help manage larger events). Eat at the island, bar, the breakfast area, or enjoy the views just outside the kitchen from the screened porch with slate floor overlooking pool. Planning desk, laundry /mud room, and additional half bath off kitchen. Welcoming front foyer has wainscoting and Damask wallpaper. Half-bath off hallway is a showcase all its own with contemporary sink resting on antique cabinet and shiplap walls. Second floor comprised of three bedrooms, each with its own bath. One bedroom is a suite with its own sitting room, ideal for guests or nanny. Partially finished lower level with huge recreation room, full bath, exercise room, three double closets, and wine cellar. Two large storage rooms, one of which is ideally suited to be a serious workshop, photo studio, or other project workspace. Apartment above garage has separate entrance and includes living room, updated kitchen, bedroom, full bathroom, and vaulted ceilings.Two tankless water heaters means you'll never run out of hot water! Four heating and air conditioning systems. Invisible fence.
