This award-winning home by Visbeen Architects provides generously for larger families with great outdoor areas that encourage seasonal living and large-scale entertaining. Two entrances, one more formal than the other, showcase the exquisite elevation at the front of the home. A third entrance from the three-car garage handles casual traffic, leading directly into a large landing area for homecoming family members. More than a mudroom, this useful space includes an office, laundry and garment room, and multiple deep closets. A secluded bedroom and bath are located half a flight down from the main level. Practically appointed, the kitchen features lots of prep room, an island that doubles as a casual table, and a separate lounge area. Showcasing a beautiful two-sided fireplace and views of the surrounding property, the dining room puts formal entertaining at the heart of the plan. The second floor is home to bedrooms, a study, a cozy family room, and a play area. Find your soothing retreat in the master suite, filled with everyday luxuries such as walk-in closets, a steam shower, and a private patio. An optional recreation room on the top floor has plenty of room for games and a built-in wet bar. Packed with cottage attributes, this Visbeen Architects home features an open floor plan without sacrificing intimate spaces. Opening to the kitchen and a double-sided fireplace, the dining room features a relaxing lounge area. Abundant outdoor living space is accessible from throughout the first floor. The second floor features a spacious master suite, a children’s suite, and a whimsical playroom area. Two additional bedrooms open to a shared bath. This home won first place at the 2008 American Residential Design Awards in the Custom Luxury category.
