Just nine minutes from Palmer Square, this exceptional 3-bedroom, 3-bath passive-solar contemporary serves up a serene oasis, tucked in the woods backing into a 135-acre reserve. As you come down the driveway, mottled by dogwood and mature oaks, you know you are home. Designed by renowned architect Cyril Beveridge, this efficient home blends seamlessly with surrounding nature and has been featured on environmental house tours. Lovingly maintained, this elegant property offers established gardens, walking paths, specimen trees, and custom-designed fences and gates by master woodworker David Robinson. Superior craftsmanship by builder James Potts is felt throughout, including the hand-cut cedar shake roof, authentic Japanese shoji doors. Well-lit open spaces offer a high ceiling great room, large double-pane transom windows, blond hardwood floors, and a red-glazed Vermont Castings wood stove which efficiently throws heat into the living room and house. The open Spyglass Design kitchen is a chef’s dream: custom cabinetry, Indian Cleopatra marble countertops, Miele and Subzero appliances and spacious walk-in pantry. The adjoining sun room is the perfect place to witness the great blue heron land in the stream over your morning espresso. The second floor on one end hosts the master suite with Spyglass-designed bath, and on the other three additional bedrooms and bath. The “Poet’s Garrett” – a small room in the sky reached by a ladder – will lure children and delight those seeking refuge in the trees. The blue stone patio with retaining wall overlooks one of the two meandering streams. A connecting breezeway creates yet another outdoor space as it delivers you to the two-car garage, which could easily be converted to a graduate student/mother-in-law apartment above. This gracious, thoughtful, integrated home is turnkey ready for a young family or couple who would like to age in place all the while connecting with the natural world.
