Presenting a superlative and stunning soft contemporary home in a wooded setting created by the top tier team of Bodron+Fruit Architecture, landscaping by MESA, and contractor Elite Homes by John and Stephen Hardy. Built to last generations and completed in 2009, there is thoughtful consideration given to the gorgeous materials that include Cottonwood limestone, mahogany and copper exteriors, rift cut white oak and Gasgone marble floors, and custom cabinetry built onsite, combining with a sophisticated textured landscape and attention to environmental sensitivity. The floor plan offers large open spaces with seamless connections to the exteriors yet feels warm and enveloping for the couple who commissioned it. The great room soars with a 14 foot height ceiling, featuring a marble-clad Rumford fireplace, giving views of nature through steel windows and leading to front and rear terraces through wide pocket doors. A magnificent 5000 volume library with floor to ceiling millwork provides a private and cozy setting. The kitchen features elm clad Bulthaup cabinets with custom inserts and an oversized corner window. Cleverly hidden behind a wall of cabinetry is a working pantry with added equipment and china storage. A spacious den, highlighted by a limestone fireplace surrounded by bookcases, allows room for the breakfast table and is open to the kitchen. There is an easy transition to the pool and cabana by a wall of sliding glass doors through a mechanized screened terrace. On the opposite wing, the ground level master bedroom also views the pool through eastern exposures. A limestone fireplace, hidden TV and an office tucked behind the bed wall complete the bedroom suite. The luxurious spa style master bath is clad with book-matched Calacatta slab marble, has heated floors, his and her WCs plus two spacious walk-in closets. Artful landscape design provides much privacy yet southern light into the bath. Upstairs are two elegant guest suites with large corner glass exposures. At the top of the stairs the exercise room is comfortable with a soft floor, ballet bar and a yoga wall. Two powders, a large utility and storage closets round out the first floor. The basement tells the story of the amazingly well built structure that employs a commercial quality concrete and steel foundation, a geothermal HVAC system, integrated whole home audio/video system, Lutron automated lighting and shading designed by Craig Roberts Co, water and dust filtration, wiring in-conduit, and a de-humidifier. As if that weren’t enough, there is a backup generator designed to run the house if power is disabled. On a 1.3 acre site, the entry through a discreetly designed gate and security camera leads past an award-winning landscape featuring a naturalized forest of native trees plus the strategic additions of blooming trees, shrubs, and flowers that provide year-round seasonal color and a privacy screen from the street. In contrast, the rear yard is meticulously manicured with power lines buried under the row of mature magnolia trees. There are delightful outdoor amenities including a putting and chipping green, a saltwater infinity pool and spa, a mahogany lattice covered terrace, and a screened terrace with a fireplace. The glass-walled cabana features a full bath, kitchenette, and wall cabinets enclosing a pull-out desk and flat screen TV. For long term care of the home there is an extensive drainage system, UV film on the windows, and foam insulation added to all exterior walls and ceilings. This one of a kind property is not to be missed!
