This home is a beautiful rendition of “Modern Farmhouse.” It sits atop a majestic ridge with views for days from the front and back door and everywhere in between. As soon you pull up to the home, you will immediately fall in love with the charm of the Farmhouse exterior with on-trend painted brick, board and batten, cedar beams and stone patios. Enter into the soaring foyer to find yourself in the midst of a fashion forward yet warm and inviting take on urban meets countryside. The 12 ft coffered ceiling, built-in bookcases surrounding the ship lapped fireplace in the family room are not to be outdone by the fabulous 16 ft all glass Western sliding door that creates an additional living space onto the outdoor patio with outdoor kitchen including built in Coyote Gas Grill and Refrigerator. The dining area with soaring vaulted ceiling and warm trim accents is the perfect spot for the farm table for the whole family to sit in fellowship. Inside the large chefs kitchen boasts a professional GE Café Appliance selection with a gas cooktop, built in oven, state of the art built in Kuerig Refrigerator and Monarch cabinets that go all the way to the ceiling. The 9 ft plus waterfall, wrapped silerstone island and backsplash is breathtaking yet durable enough for cooking, entertaining and even homework with the kids. Speaking of kids, the quaint Dutch door that leads into a “loading zone” off of the mudroom is a perfect place to drop off the backpacks and groceries when entering. The main level includes a spacious study/office that is perfect for working from home as well as a spacious master suite with a vaulted tray ceiling and sitting nook for enjoying the sunrise in the morning or a book in the evening. Once you enter into the Master bathroom, you will think you have stepped into your own personal space with serene marble accents, ultra mod freestanding tub and 2-person shower with glass from floor to ceiling. Upstairs is enough room for all the kids and guests ranging from oldest to youngest with an amazing TV Loft/Lounge centering the entertainment area of that level. This home is an amazing marriage of traditional farmhouse meets transitional modern from the rich dark 7” hand scraped hardwood flooring and barn door leading to the laundry room, to the Smart Home features by Nexia, to the latest in trend lighting and plumbing by Feiss and Moen. This home is one you will never want to leave.
