Anchored into bedrock and built of steel and oak, this residence has enough linear feet of wood to stretch 11 miles. It marries classical design principles with a farmhouse-industrial feel. Its symmetry, flow and flexibility create a 5,100 SF floor plan suited for today's lifestyles. Enter into a front-to-back center hall with living areas to the left and right and a corridor that runs the full length of the house, allowing access to every room without going through each space. Its finishes and details command attention; rustic and substantial, its 1.5"-thick oak floors.
Exposed beams, beadboard walls, solid masonry chimneys and big sash windows keep this home true to its farmhouse roots. Step into the contemporary kitchen, where a huge polished concrete island seats six and contains a stainless-steel farmhouse apron sink. Custom elmwood cabinetry is the finishing touch.
Separating the kitchen and dining room is a two-sided Heat-Glo propane fireplace. For warm weather entertaining, French doors open to a party-sized terrace with multiple fire pits and sunset views down to the Paunacussing Creek. The living room and adjacent music room each have Rumford fireplaces. Roomy private quarters, including a main bedroom suite with super-vaulted ceiling, boutique-style dressing room, ultra-contemporary bath and office/lounge in the loft, are well-planned.
