Home of the Week


The family and living rooms also feature fireplaces facing the windows, including a floor-to-ceiling brick mantel in the family room. 

At the top of the wooden stairs, the living room adjoins the kitchen, with its updated appliances and a glass door leading to the deck. Behind the kitchen, two bedrooms share a hallway bath while the master suite features an adjoining bath and a skylight. 

Hardwood floors continue through the living room, the hallway and the three upper story bedrooms. Berber carpeting appears in the family room. Slate floors form the main-floor patio and entrance hall, while the two tiled rear bedrooms on this level share a full bath. 

The home thus demonstrates both the open, flowing floor plan and the indoor-outdoor living that are the hallmark of the contemporary style. The front eave encourages winter heating and summer cooling, as an example of passive solar design.

The exciting contemporary exterior features walls of windows facing towering trees for an unforgettable view. Those windows line both the living room on the main floor and the family room downstairs.
