This stone and cedar masterpiece was built with superior craftsmanship and extraordinary materials inside and out.
Stone porches with 2” thick bluestone stoops, steps, and patios create an elegant entryway into the home, add interest to the front facade, and provide a private area for outdoor enjoyment off of the master suite. The 18” x 5/8” taper sawn cedar roof shingles are complemented with copper gutters, downspouts, and flashing. The endless backyard vistas are best appreciated from the expansive stone patio, complete with an outdoor fireplace and stone benches. A fenced area with artificial turf is a nice added bonus. The high quality finishes can be seen on all three levels of the home. Large premium windows allow for an abundance of natural light to enhance the warm interior of the home. Tall ceilings are enhanced by coffered detailing and hand-hewed reclaimed barn timber beams that provide a feeling of grandeur throughout and are accented by elliptical cased doorways, custom millwork, and solid core 8’ doors. A combination of outstanding stone flooring and wide plank white oak hardwood flooring with hand scraped edges lend to an old world look and feel. The Chef’s kitchen is comprised of high-end stainless steel appliances, a dramatic custom hood, tile backsplashes, rift sawn white oak custom cabinetry, flamed stone countertops and island with breakfast bar, walk-in pantry, and planning desk. The flexible floor plan allows the home to adapt to your lifestyle.
First floor highlights include a master suite, elegant living and dining room, expansive great room that is open to the kitchen, library, laundry, and mudroom. The unsurpassed master suite features a fireplace with hand carved French limestone mantle and hearth, built-in arched cabinets, two walk-in closets, and a gorgeous Carrera marble bathroom with premium stone tile, steam shower, whirlpool, separate custom vanities, and radiant heated floor. The second floor has four additional family bedrooms each with a well-appointed en-suite bath and a second laundry room. The full finished lower level was constructed with 10’ high foundation walls to provide a higher finished ceiling height. The detailing continues with premium flooring, moulding, recessed lighting, and oversized window wells with stucco finish that comes together to create another level of living space. A thoughtfully designed wine room provides temperature controlled storage for 1,200 bottles and a finely appointed room in which to enjoy each bottle with slate flooring and hand hewn reclaimed barn timbers and siding. The wine room is so impressive that it was featured in Wine Spectator magazine in 2015. The lower level also includes a second family room, exercise room, versatile craft room, two additional bedrooms, and two full bathrooms. Additional systems include integrated AV system, Sonos, surround sound, wired security system, fire sprinkler system, landscape irrigation system, wired landscape lighting system with timers, Carrier Infinity system with 95% efficient 3 stage furnaces with humidifiers and 17 SEER AC units, and a backup generator. The three car attached heated garage has built-in cabinetry, epoxy coated floor, and custom cedar plan “carriage style” garage doors.
