Enter through the bluestone tiled entrance into this stunner of a home, which is finished with Shinnoki white oak flooring throughout. In the living room, warm the chilly nights by a stacked stone fireplace and watch the snow fall outside. Clear pine tilt and turn windows by Zola were imported from Germany, and used throughout the house, giving guests plentiful natural light and glimpses out to the surrounding landscapes. Also on the ground level, a master suite includes walls of glass, vaulted ceilings, a walk-in shower, and private deck.
The kitchen features custom cabinets, vaulted ceilings, and Sub Zero and Miele appliances. Each of the three bathrooms feature custom maple cabinetry, Heath ceramic tiles, Boffi fixtures, and Kohler sinks. All systems and structures in the house were new in 2015; a new septic tank for house and barn has capacity for 25 people.
On the 9+ acre property, abundant gardens are planted in New American style in the manner of PIet Oudolf to best harmonize with the surroundings, while also providing the perfect habitat for birds and other wildlife. Pick apples and pears from the trees and turn them to cider just down the street, watch the mist float through the valley below, and tap your own maple trees for homegrown maple syrup. A spring fed swimming pond reflects the vistas and cools on a hot summer day. Last, the sturdy barn is ready for your best ideas: guest quarters, studio, workshop?
