New construction by Matt Payne of Springhill Homes showcases a fresh and light-drenched contemporary farmhouse sprawling over 1.27 level acres near the former Kaiser Estate. The gorgeous creek-side property offers an ultra-private mecca for outdoor entertaining and living under gorgeous towering oak trees.
Nestled in an exclusive enclave of homes on a cul-de-sac, this home offers 3672 square feet of exceptional living space on two levels. Impeccable craftsmanship and design are evident in every detail, from the clean lines, hardwood floors, and soaring coffered ceilings to a sleek iron staircase railing and several clerestories capturing treetop views.
There are four en suite bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, including a main-level suite, plus a flexible-use loft ideal for a media/game room or a home office.
Gather and thrive in the spectacular great room designed with expansive living and dining areas and a chef’s kitchen well-appointed with fine finishes, including Calacatta marble and quartz counters with a sleek and decorative tile backsplash, an oversized island/breakfast bar, custom cabinetry, open shelving, and a stainless apron sink. Appliances include a Wolf six-burner range, dual Wolf wall ovens, SubZero refrigerator, a drawer microwave, and dual Bosch dishwashers.
Three sliding French doors virtually open the walls in the great room to create a seamless flow to the amazing backyard, a sanctuary of tranquility. Enjoy the built-in outdoor kitchen featuring a Bull grill and refrigerator, a concrete counter and raised counter seating for six, the sprawling flagstone patio and lawn, lush garden beds, a large gas fire pit, and multiple venues for dining and relaxation,
Envision the possibilities and be inspired by this palette of fully fenced outdoor space to customize with a pool, spa, cabana, sports/tennis court, or an ADU/guesthouse.
Beyond the spacious upstairs loft are three en suite bedrooms, including the master suite behind a double door entry. This luxurious room also has a coffered ceiling, windows on three sides, a pair of generously sized walk-in closets, and a sumptuous bath with a dual-vessel-sink vanity and a backsplash wall of glass mosaic tile. Pamper yourself with a soak in the freestanding tub or enjoy the oversized shower with rain and hand-held showerheads.
Two additional bedrooms are spacious rooms with en suite bathrooms beautifully appointed with custom finishes and tile. Also on this level behind a pocket door is a second laundry room plumbed for a stacked washer and dryer.
Additional features include a neutral palette of colors, smooth textured walls, dual pane windows, wide baseboards, shiplap accent walls, high ceilings, and crown molding. A mudroom entry has a built-in bench near the laundry room outfitted with a sink, cabinetry, and a decorative tile backsplash. A two-car garage has epoxy flooring. A deep under-stairs closet would make an ideal wine cellar or extensive storage space.
