Craftsman in the Woods

Situated down a private lane on a rolling hillside rests this stunning Craftsman-inspired home!  It’s natural wood beamwork and deep eave bracket detailing coupled with its covered front and rear porches help evoke a home heavy with shade and shadow, and as a result one with a ton of depth and visual interest!  A complementary blend of composite wood siding and white trim details help set the stage for the home’s regionally striking stone veneer and wood beams and ceilings to steal the show on the exterior!  Upon entering the home through the impressive mahogany double front door, it is easy to be overwhelmed to your right by the open riser staircase with an eye-catching two-and-a-half story stone wall backdrop.  Looking straight ahead, you are drawn deeper into the home into the open cathedral great room anchored by its robust stone fireplace.  Immediately adjacent is the expansive custom kitchen with its massive curved island perfect for cooking and entertaining.  And come dinner time, family and friends will enjoy the unique dining room with loads of windows, stone accent wall, and cathedral wood ceiling.

Directly off the great room and dining room lies the home’s sizable wrap-around covered rear balcony with adjacent outdoor wood burning fireplace and picturesque views of the tranquil pool below.  Back inside, the home has both a dedicated walk-in pantry and a large functional mud room complete with bench, lockers, and slop sink.  Rounding out the first floor is an office and the home’s second master suite perfect for visiting in-laws.  On the second floor, the home’s primary master suite offers a beautiful and restful bathroom setting as well as wonderful elevated views of the pool.  Across the ‘bridge’ overlooking the foyer and great room rests two more sizable bedrooms, full bath, and laundry room.  Down the open staircase to the finished lower level is a wonderful set of spaces perfect for entertaining throughout all the seasons whether its a kids’ pool/video game day in the summer or a cold winter movie night cuddled up near the toasty high-performance wood burning stove.  Complement the experience by grabbing a refreshing beverage at the striking indoor bar or outside on the pool level patio bar complete with sink, grill, and propane burner.  And don’t forget to work off all those food and drinks in the light filled exercise room or take a restful nap in the adjacent guest suite and full bathroom.
