Nestled on a completely private 2.5-acre lot with a gated entry, a hockey rink, basketball and volleyball court, in close proximity to St. Clair Country Club, this unsurpassed, Rustic Contemporary-style estate offers something for everyone. Located in an award-winning school district and only 25 minutes from Pittsburgh International Airport, this designer-quality residence boasts a main-level master suite with a spa-like bath, an upper-level game room with hardwood ceilings, a walk-in wine cellar and an expansive lower level. A destination unto itself, the lower level includes a sports bar with granite counters, a fridge/ice maker and custom cabinets with glass insets; a large family room/home theater with a gas fireplace, a built-in projector, custom moldings and ample space for a billiards table, as well as a full kitchen with granite, distinctive tin ceilings, and an open dining area, plus a spacious home gym, with a built-in TV, an adjacent bathroom that includes a steam shower and French doors that lead to the secluded backyard—perfect for cooling off after a long workout. Hidden from the street by a long private drive, the home blends modern amenities such as smart home technology and motion-sensor lighting with gorgeous natural materials, evidenced by the brick and stone exterior, exposed beam ceilings and northern ash flooring, which runs throughout the main living areas. Get work done in a large home office with extensive built-ins, volume ceilings and views of the dramatic water feature in the front yard, gather friends around the massive outdoor fireplace in the backyard, which also has a built-in BBQ island, select a favorite vintage from the walk-in wine cellar or host an elegant dinner party in the formal dining room. With coffered wood ceilings, room for a 10-person table and dual walls of atrium-style doors that open to a front courtyard, the dining room is perfect for entertaining friends and neighbors. An adjacent butler’s pantry/wet bar with high-end appliances, granite counters and extensive custom cabinetry makes hosting large gatherings a relaxing affair. Equally suited for a caterer or the chef in the family, the kitchen has an 8 burner gas range, 2 dishwashers, 2 Wolf ovens, a SubZero fridge, a center island and a warming drawer. Leathered granite countertops, custom cabinets and paint tones pop against the designer hardware and fixtures; an adjacent dining area with a wall of glass doors keeps the vibe friendly and relaxed. The open great room lives up to its name, with soaring cathedral ceilings, walls of windows, a stone fireplace that extends to the ceiling and French doors that lead to the backyard. The nearby master suite is a relaxing place to finish the day, as it has a large retreat, vaulted ceilings and a spacious, recently renovated bathroom, with radiant heated floors, a modern free-standing tub, an oversized walk-in shower and dual vanities. A custom walk-in closet with built-in cabinetry and direct access to the cedar attic adds to the appeal. The three large secondary bedrooms all have walk-in closets; one has a large sitting area and an updated bath with marble tile and a glass enclosure. Lovingly refined by the current owner, the home also has dual staircases, built-in seating and cabinetry off the mudroom, a spacious laundry room with a sink, granite counters and custom cabinets; two large unfinished storage rooms on the lower level, two custom sheds, heated gutters and overhangs, expansive rolling lawns. Other lovingly included details are the integrated sound system, hot tub, keyless entry into the three-car garage, three new HVAC systems and synthetic hockey rink, which allows for year-round enjoyment.
With too many amenities to include a complete list, this sophisticated trophy home should be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
