Set on an enormous 45'x125' lot with natural light streaming in at every angle, this custom architectural Modern Farmhouse is a breath of fresh air where drama, function, and light together create the quintessential living experience. An enclosed entry foyer opens to a central corridor with a gorgeous living room centered on a fireplace flanked by shoji screens on one side - and floor-to-ceiling sliding walls opening to a fabulous library/office on the other. With walls of glass and direct access to a private courtyard, the corridor leads to an enormous dining room overlooking the grounds on all sides and a wonderful family room with built-ins. Oriented to the backyard and terrace at grade level, the to-die-for commercial kitchen - centered on a marble island with a butcher-block extension for seating - has extensive storage, workstation, and easy access to the yards and garage. An unbelievable outfitted mudroom w/storage, cubbies, and hanging space is off the kitchen. Upstairs are 4 truly generous bedrooms on the same level including a light-filled primary suite with vaulted ceilings, large walk-in closet, and stylish spa bath. The lower level has another bedroom, full bath, wine storage, fab rec room, and huge storage room. Gorgeous finishes and details everywhere - walnut floors, extensive built-in, sophisticated stones, dreamy lighting. A designer's own home, this residence offers something truly special in the marketplace.
