A successful executive came to us with her vision for a custom home in a gated horse-country community. She wanted a home which would provide privacy in her busy life, welcoming spaces for the family to gather and areas to meet each family member's needs.
Eschewing formal living and dining rooms for more comfortable spaces, the client chose instead a family room with a high ceiling, custom timber frame beams with plaster inlays, and warm, faux finished walls. The large adjacent kitchen provides multiple seating areas, including a banquette for watching TV, two marble topped islands to gather around and a dining area with a vaulted ceiling overlooking the 45 foot pool and pool house. The kitchen includes appliances by Wolfe, Subzero and Miele and a large butler's pantry. A powder room on this level features a mosaic marble floor, antique vanity, gold Sherle Wagner fixtures and a Swarovski crystal door knob. The lower level contains an additional entertainment area with custom Italian walnut cabinets and bar, a pool table area, multiple TVs and gathering area. Family and guests can also enjoy an exercise room, complemented by a spa bath featuring a body spray and steam shower and more custom cabinetry.
The owner's suite is a peaceful retreat which includes a fireplace, vaulted ceiling, spacious closet/dressing room and luxurious bath with a laser cut marble, mosaic inset in the shower. It shares an adjoining windowed sunroom with a private suite for the client's mother. This nearly self-contained suite includes a living room with a fireplace, a bedroom and a bar area.
The sons' rooms reflect their unique personalities and interests. One room has a blue and white beach theme with wood paneling and large, industrial look shower. The other contains a cozy upper loft which is accessed by a ladder. The home also includes a private space which the boys share for video games. Even guests are very comfortably accommodated in a suite which has a bedroom, private sitting room and bathroom. Custom doors and unique antique doors, cabinetry and fixtures are located throughout the home.
