This property is a complete
lifestyle: home and horses, peace and quiet, orchards and berries. This home
basks in privacy although a six-minute drive takes you into the heart of
The beveled-glass, double
front doors with sidelights open to oak floors with walnut trim, but frankly,
you will hardly notice them. As soon as you step into the entry, the dominate feature
is the amazing and unexpected view across the living room through three huge
windows. The view is astonishing as you find yourself flung instantly to the
far shores of Canada!
A lovely fireplace creates a
focal point for the living room which also features custom built-in shelves and
cabinets of alder wood used throughout the home. Wainscoting skirts the
coffered-ceiling library which has a wall of custom shelves and cabinetry. The
floor here is hickory. A small deck offers a private get-away where you can
contemplate the endless view – or check on the horses.
The magnificent kitchen
commands the main floor opening to a lovely eating area, a formal dining room,
living room and receives in-coming packages from the double-car garages. A
kitchen desk and hall with a guest powder room intersect here. The oak hardwood
floors flow underfoot bringing a sense of unity. There are two major pantries,
one walk-in and one behind double-doors, plus the usual extensive kitchen
cabinetry. A Jenn-Air gas-top stove, a built-in second oven and microwave,
miles of Corian counter tops and bar height counters keeps the cook at the
center of all activities.
The bright mudroom/utility
room on the other side of the kitchen houses more storage and cabinetry galore,
a deep sink, and a three-quarters bathroom. Besides the normal double-car
garage storage, there are two protected closets. Just off the upper drive, a
20′ x 20′ tractor garage stores a variety of machinery and grounds care items.
A walkway deck along the
side of the home leads to a shady deck with gas hook-up for a grill and access
to the kitchen which makes entertaining easy-peasy. Part of the sunny deck,
like the shady one sits under wood-covered eaves which provide protection from
the weather. You can enjoy these outside ‘rooms’ for more than the sunny
season. And with the spectacular view, these areas could become favorite spots
for morning coffee and evening’s wine.
The dining room shares the
fabulous view which lights ups with twinkling lights both near and far. You can
serve from the gray-green granite counter of the custom lighted, display
cabinet. Its ceiling is one of three with the elegant touch of wood trimmed,
The master suite housed on
this level offers a private retreat with room for a seating area, a reading
nook filled with built-in shelves, many windows and, of course, the view of the
pastures…and Canada. Bare feet will pad along cozy carpeting. The bathroom’s
double vanity is newly renovated with sinks set-in under the black granite
counters strewn with shimmering gray and silver constellations. The faucets and
other appointments are gold tone. The easy-access, tile-lined shower offers
privacy and just outside the door, between the bathroom and generous walk-in
closet is a built-in bench.
Because of the exciting view
as you stepped into the entry, you may not have noticed the stairway to the
lower level. The slope of the hill’s allows many windows to wash the lower
level with light. A guest bedroom with a full bath across the hall, and a
second master suite are tucked away here. The large family room comes complete
with a wet bar in a luscious gray-green marble top, a small refrigerator, wood
stove with a wood storage cabinet, media closet, and cabinetry with an inset
for a large screen television. Nights at home become events in this space!
off of it you’ll discover your office with two built-in desks and cabinetry,
plus the requisite high-power wiring. Outside the family room a fenced yard
provides entertainment, security and containment for dogs and children.
