The approach to this stunning custom home is on a level street. The driveway has room for 5 vehicles and the over sized 2 car garage features custom cabinets that have perfect space for all your tools and toys.
As you enter through the 8 foot front door, the house and great room spreads out before you. Light flows in from the many windows and sky lights. The custom slate floor and gas fireplace capture the rugged yet peaceful ambiance of this custom mountain home where you can enjoy living in your own forest environment.
The kitchen is a chef’s dream, large and open, the bay window looks onto the babbling brook and most mornings the chickadees bathe as you prepare your coffee or tea by using the “hot shot” by in sink-erator with hot water on demand. The cornerstone of the kitchen is a Professional model 48 inch Jenn Air gas stove with six burners, a griddle and 2 ovens, a workhorse for the most discerning of chefs. A Jenn Air french door refrigerator and a quiet Jenn Air dishwasher, all stainless steel, give the kitchen a clean and classy look. There are also plenty of custom alder cabinets, both uppers and lowers to hold all the tools, pots and pans you will need to cook in this wonderful space. The dark green granite counters augment the bright kitchen space.
If entertaining is your thing, your guests can sit and converse with you on the 8 barstools, cooking and socializing have never been so delightful. In the summer months, step through the sliding glass door and enjoy your meal outside on the large back deck overlooking your 2 acres of private forest. The dining room is also the perfect gathering spot for a sit down dinner for 10 or an intimate evening for two. A walk-in pantry compliments the dining room/ kitchen partnership. Also on the main floor is an office/ bedroom off the kitchen, a half bath with pedestal sink, a laundry room with custom cabinets and a dog washing tub that your furry friends will love.
The slate steps take you to the upper floor where you can enjoy the fireplace and look down onto the main floor and surrounding landscape. The tempered glass panels and custom railings make the loft an open and dreamy space where you can relax. As you walk across an open office area to the back slider and deck you can’t help but appreciate the forest around you. This area could easily be walled off to create another bedroom if desired.
