Overwhelming best describes this amazing architect-designed contemporary complex. Nestled amidst mature trees with ultimate privacy, this spacious home has the extra bonus of a one-bedroom apartment/guest quarters above the three car garage, all connected to the main residence by a covered walkway. The terraced site provides ever-changing seasonal views on two commodious levels. The upper level provides a 360 degree view of beautiful perennial gardens surrounding an in-ground swimming pool along with woodland views. The floor below opens onto a large terrace with a delightful, cooling fountain and woodland vistas. Sliding glass window walls overlooking the forested dell bring the beauty of the outdoors inside. On the upper level is a large living room with wet bar and an adjoining dining area separated by a two sided gas fireplace. The slate floor throughout this level makes for easy maintenance. Opening off the opposite end of the living room is the spacious master suite and bath. This entire level has high vaulted ceilings with airy skylights. Beyond the dining area is the well appointed modern kitchen ? a cook’s dream featuring granite counters, Miele appliances (2 dishwashers, double over, cook top grill, exhaust system, a Sub Zero refrigerator, trash compactor, and plenty of cabinet space. Tucked between the kitchen and dining area is the powder room and laundry room. Adjoining the kitchen is a large, light filled glass enclosed sun room overlooking the pool, gardens and woodlands.

These light filled areas open onto the woodland terrace with fountain through sliding glass doors.

The lower level of the guest house contains the pool equipment room, an artist studio, and a full bath ? all adjoining the three car garage. The main house is heated by a new oil furnace, and the guest house by a propane fired system ? both are air conditioned. There is a 16K generator, a garden irrigation system and a 220 ft deep well with excellent quality water. The very essence of this estate is the distinctive architecture, the beautiful woodlands providing extraordinary privacy, and nearby acres of conserved open space.
