A modern oasis...Enjoy gracious living in this multi-generational, architecturally designed family retreat. Situated on a quiet, tree lined street, this magnificent, one-of-a-kind home offers the ultimate in grand living spaces, both on the interior and throughout the beautifully landscaped grounds. Comfortable living, entertaining and a love of nature were the principles guiding the design of this home. The flowing plan is focused on a central courtyard which is accessible from three main areas of the home. French doors open up onto the courtyard from all sides, creating a strong connection to the gardens. The home has two main levels and a fully-finished lower level. Brazilian cherry hardwood flooring is found throughout the two main levels of the home, while the lower level features tiles over a slab with a hydronic radiant floor heating system. Throughout the first floor, large floor-to-ceiling windows frame the lush greenery of the gardens. The high ceilings create a beautifully spacious interior environment. A total of eleven well-placed skylights compliment the space and fill it with abundant natural light. The professionally designed chef's kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances and a large, central island. A very spacious walk-in pantry separates the kitchen from the casual dining area and sun room, which overlook both the main courtyard and gardens. A large dining room, located between the kitchen and great room, is ready for entertaining family and friends. An ivy-lined secret garden, completely hidden from the street, ties the dining room to a tranquil sitting area that doubles as a small art gallery. The great room links all of these spaces together. It features an inviting lounge area, a two-way fireplace with wrap-around hearth (back to the kitchen) and French doors that open to the main courtyard with views to the gardens. The first floor also features a related living area - a rare asset in housing design. This area can be used as guest accommodation or a suite for extended family in a multi-generational living situation. While connected through the interior, it has its own private entrance through the courtyard, a full kitchen, large bedroom and a full bath. Also on the first floor is a secluded library and powder room. A mudroom/laundry room with an interior entrance to the 3-car garage completes this level. The primary suite on the second floor is the ultimate retreat with views of the gardens, two enormous walk-in closets and an attached bonus room large enough to be a nursery, office or exercise room. The primary bath, located in this main suite has a soaking tub, a large shower with body jets, and a vanity with dual sinks. An additional bath services the other bedrooms on this level, each with high ceilings, large closets and private balconies. The lower level of the residence is a great extension of the house and includes two bedrooms, a full kitchen, full bath, an office and very extensive additional storage. The entire one-acre property is professionally landscaped. Well established conifers and deciduous trees create a tranquil and idyllic setting for the extensive gardens. Outdoor features include multiple brick paver patios, a built-in gas barbeque zone, fire pit, koi pond with waterfall, meandering walkways, extensive perennial gardens and raised vegetable beds, a variety of fruit trees and a blueberry grove. A large garden shed completes the far boundary of the property. A tremendous sense of privacy combined with the quality of this home and its convenient location to amenities lifts this property to singular status. It is nothing short of a peaceful oasis.
