How do you put a value on a home curated with an eye for exquisite design? The vision the current owners have imparted on this home is remarkable, and with over $210k in improvements within the last two years, you know no expense was spared when it came to crafting this dream home. Entering into the foyer, you’ll notice the unique contemporary columns that flank the dining and living room areas. Continue down the light filled center hall, past the powder room and coat closet, to a kitchen/family room combo worthy of a feature in a luxury design magazine. The kitchen was expanded by the current owners to include white cabinetry paired beautifully with rich mahogany woods; and a large central island with a Dekton black countertop; leaving you with a feeling of warmth and happiness as you envision gatherings with friends. A gorgeous mahogany hood is a standout in the kitchen’s design, presiding over a 6-burner BlueStar gas range. BlueStar continues in the double wall ovens - one French door close. A sleek Bosche refrigerator with interior water dispenser for a streamlined facade, shows the attention to aesthetics by the owners. An adjoining family room features a newly installed stacked stone floor to ceiling fireplace flanked by custom built-in cabinets. The fireplace is electric - allowing for ease in enjoying an ambient fire. Off the kitchen you’ll find a couple of the unique gems offered by this home. First, a massive laundry room/craft room, featuring a wrap around granite counter, upper and lower cabinetry, built in desk, as well as a central island. Continue into an apartment suite ideal for an au pair, in-law suite, or other guests! Featuring it’s own private entrance, this apartment is outfitted with a full kitchen, an adjoining living room, separate bedroom, and full bathroom featuring a walk-in shower and separate bathtub. Make your way up the curved staircase to the private level of the home featuring 4 bedrooms; one which the current owner converted into an office with the installation of beautiful built-in shelving. The spacious primary suite features a custom millwork accent wall, three windows for abundant light, large bathroom, as well as a 30 foot long double closet! This upper floor features 9 foot ceilings, as well as extra wide hallways and a spacious landing for an open floorplan concept. Heading down to the lower level of the home, you’ll find another unique gem - a THX rated theater! Complete with leather recliners and stadium seating, this room offers a luxury movie experience within the comfort of your private home. A lower level rec room, full bathroom, home office, and storage space round out the lower level. Finally, make your way to the outside and be prepared to be amazed. Starting in the large screened porch off the kitchen, where al fresco dining is a breeze, literally, thanks to your extra large outdoor fan. Continue to the covered bluestone patio, featuring a wrap-around grilling station - complete with sink, fridge, freezer, flatiron grill, electric grill, and plenty of granite counter bar seating. Outdoor appliances feature high end brands such as Bull, AMG, and Blaze. A nearby raised garden bed with overhead sprinkler system allows for growing the freshest ingredients, while an in-ground irrigation system keeps your yard green with ease. Current owners installed a gorgeous bluestone and brick pathway to a lighted patio in the rear of the yard, featuring the perfect space for enjoying the natural stone fire pit. Finally, notice the 3 car garage - perfect for any car enthusiast! The garage doors were insulated by the current owner to increase the inside comfort. Outside, you’ll find a staircase to the bonus room above the garage - recently finished by the current owner, it is outfitted with electricity, grey flooring, and a window for natural light. The perfect space for a private home office, yoga studio, or more! Whole house generator and water filtration systems included!
