Meditative, mystical, rejuvenating, peaceful & serene are descriptive of this little piece of heaven on earth, your haven away from the hustle and bustle of life.

Separately deeded, there is a 2.7-acre vacant lot as you turn onto the private road and towards the back the contiguous 3.7-acre lot with the circular drive main house, a detached three car garage with a spacious waiting to be finished second floor. For those seeking a separate music studio or private office, there is a cozy cabin with bedroom, bathroom, floor to ceiling windows and back deck.
In keeping with the modern rustic style architecture this home is characterized by its natural setting and use of organic building materials, natural wood exterior & interior, fieldstone gardens, paver style patios, wide plank pegged floors, real wood beams, wood built-ins and walls of glass. Every room in the house has unobscured views seamlessly blending the interior with the great outdoors in an unpretentious relaxed welcoming way.
The heart of every home is the kitchen, and this kitchen is a standout. A large butcher block island sits centrally in the room allowing more than one cook to create a fabulous meal for friends and family! There are two sinks, a 48-inch Thermador six plus burner range with double oven, a Miele dishwasher, large subzero fridge, black granite counters, including a slightly lower counter baker alcove, closeted washer & dryer & loads of storage space. The far end of the kitchen is designed to accommodate a large table and is accented by a vaulted wood beam circular ceiling.
The main living room runs front to the back of the house and is spacious enough for large gatherings. The dining room opens to the lovely back patio with a trellis adorned with gorgeous clematis. Cocktails on the patio and then inside to a delicious sit-down dinner! The cozy family room greets you as you enter the home. The masonry fireplace with a rugged country look will appeal to your early homesteader pioneering or just off the slope skier spirit. The main floor master bedroom with ensuite resort quality bath and large walkin closet is calling for a Jacuzzi just out the sliding glass doors! An office, 2 bedrooms and 2nd resort quality bathrooms complete this one floor living home. There are stairs down to an indoor gardening shed walkout basement.
