This “enchanted forest chalet” comes to life with exterior materials that include James Hardie Black Ash and Aged Pewter siding; a cedar vaulted entry with decorative brackets and truss work; and a stone-blend board and batten.
Inside, this aesthetic translates to arched windows, walnut flooring and doors, and vaulted ceilings in the great room and kitchen, finished with walnut cabinetry and natural quartzite countertops.
The primary suite on the main level features a beamed box-vaulted ceiling, a stone-clad gas fireplace, and a private deck. The bath is a private oasis, with a freestanding tub and walk-in shower. The custom walnut closet system connects the laundry achieving a walk-through layout.
Double glass walnut pocket doors open up to the vaulted den. Wrapped in wainscoting and offering a bold, masculine aesthetic, the den is properly suited for desk work on one end and casual meetings and cocktails on the other. Walnut shelving and cabinetry and a bar cabinet tucked beside the fireplace with a space to lounge and relax complete the look.
Space on the lower level for the homeowners to enjoy their favorite hobbies was a must. A dedicated pottery studio was built with a kiln, drying shelves, and a sink, while the hunting room displays custom gun racks.
A temperature-controlled wine cellar with walnut racking to house more than 1,100 bottles sits adjacent to a fully equipped wet bar.
The lower level is complete with three guest rooms, a media room with a stone fireplace and built-in cabinetry, a game room with a pool table, and an exercise room, fulfilling the homeowners’ wish for a house capable of entertaining and hosting family gatherings.
There are ample opportunities to appreciate the property’s streams and hillsides, from a four-season porch with a gas fireplace and stone surround to the paver patio with space for al fresco dining and quiet conversations around a wood-burning fireplace.
