Nestled on a private, beautifully wooded lot, this modern European home is a testament to harmonious design and its natural surroundings. As you approach, a breathtaking view of the home reveals itself through a canopy of mature trees, creating a truly awe-inspiring first impression.

Inside, you’ll experience the sensation of living among the treetops, with the great room stealing the show. The architectural choices were guided by the desire to seamlessly blend with the surrounding nature, evident in the extensive use of large windows and dramatic ceiling heights throughout the home. The timeless design is enhanced with warm wood tones, including walnut cabinetry, reclaimed wood beams, and walnut slat walls, which add a touch of organic elegance to every room.

The open and airy floor plan, along with thoughtful additions like the loft overlooking the great room, a cozy day bed in the upper-level bedroom, a sleek lower-level bar and island, and an athletic court, cater to the needs of modern families seeking both functionality and style.

The kitchen range serves as a focal point, featuring a stunning design that inspired the entire home. Unique features such as the pass-through from the range to the scullery behind and beautiful walnut cabinetry with glass panels showcase the blend of functionality and artistic flair. There aren’t any white cabinets in this home. Instead, warm wood tones take center stage, perfectly complemented by modern touches that create an inviting and cozy atmosphere.

The two-story fireplace in the great room features masculine details and metal accents that add a contemporary edge to the natural stone surroundings. The use of wool carpet throughout the home adds warmth and comfort, while fun patterned tiles, steel elements, brushed gold fixtures, and white oak flooring further enhance the unique character of each space.
