Walk upstairs and you’re treading on reclaimed timber from the old tavern that used to stand here. You are living the green dream.

The second floor lays out beautifully….. We took an extra 13′ from the second bedroom to open up the space more.

The builder thought of everything. Even the nooks are photo-worthy.

With an 18′ Soupcan concrete island, Artemide lighting and music flowing from the built-in sound system and new Samsung speakers, the party is on. Cook to impress in the double Thermador ovens (convection & standard) & dehydrators, 6-burner Viking Professional cooktop, and built-in electrical in countertop and other electrical neatly stored in the custom Valcuccini cabinetry.

Miele dishwasher and a large walk-in Laundry Room with full size Whirlpool Duet Washer/Dryer neatly concealed behind sliding doors make clean-up easy. Storage is abundant, but discreetly tucked away.
