Zen-Inspired, This Home Is An Oasis In The Midst Of A Busy World
This bright and spacious contemporary-style home features an open concept design and takes advantage of scenic pond views and peaceful landscapes to welcome you home.
Bringing The Outdoors In
Nestled in amongst specimen plantings, rock gardens, mature maples and granite outcroppings, this redwood and flagstone home integrates into its natural surroundings with ease. Immediately apparent as you enter the foyer is the sense of space and light flooding in through the multiple large-paned windows. A gently curved central staircase provides direct access to both the upper and lower living spaces, while the main floor meanders through a series of levels providing interest and distinct living areas.
The formal dining room includes a flagstone feature wall and overlooks a mezzanine, which includes a river rock planting bed with 30-year old Ficus trees soaring towards the roof. It also opens to a gourmet custom kitchen and breakfast nook, which includes a large center island with a prep sink, granite counters, cherry cabinets, a professional Wolf 6-burner gas cooktop, Viking double ovens, energy efficient professional series Liebherr refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher and a wine fridge. Two full baths, a guest suite and a laundry/mudroom complete this level.
Moving to the mezzanine, the large home office, family room with double high ceilings and a wood-burning stove surrounded by flagstone blocks, exercise room and access to the multiple decks provides ample space for rest and relaxation. The waterfall-like flow of the home continues further down to a library and spacious living room with a second fireplace, huge skylights and a vaulted ceiling. Adjoining the living room, a library is accessed by two sets of French doors, while an expansive deck provides an exterior complement from which to enjoy the pond views from the rear of the home.
A Place To Relax
The master wing enjoys a spacious bedroom and sitting room including a fireplace, built-in cabinetry and bookshelves. Reminiscent of a European spa, the master bath includes a double vanity with marble counters, a separate bath and shower area with vaulted ceilings and wood accents, and a large skylight. The walk-in closet is a room unto itself and is cedar-lined throughout. The three additional bedrooms include ample closet space and multiple windows, and share an updated hall bath. Hardwood floors are found throughout.
Lower Level Suite
Walking out to the yard via multiple entrances, the lower level features a perfect au paire or in-law suite including a full height ceiling, wine cellar and tasting room, kitchenette, recreation room, craft/bedroom, full bath and a billiard/games room. Ample closet space and additional storage are also found here.
Back To Nature
Multiple level mahogany decks and terraces off the master bedroom, exercise room, living room and lower level allow myriad opportunities to take in the serenity of the property. Mature trees surround the home, while Round Pond provides a quiet backdrop. The incorporation of natural materials means the home blends seamlessly into its surroundings.
Located only a short drive to town and close to the New York border for fast commuting, the home includes over $500,000 in upgrades and improvements. Combined with so much beauty, this home offers everything you would want in your own Zen oasis.
