Contemporary View Home.The original home was conceived in 1950's as a classic three bedroom, two bath home on an oversized .49 Acre view lot. The current owners purchased the home in 1978 and their first renovation was the conversion of the basement to a family room and master bedroom suite. After enjoying the home for a decade, the owners then hired an architect and re-imagined the home to its current grandeur. The front entry was created, the garage was added, the addition of an upper floor master retreat was realized, the main floor was expanded to include a formal dining room accentuating the views, the lower level was expanded to create a dance and music studio. The expansive gardens were completed to complement this exceptional home and create a serene private oasis. Now this dramatic contemporary view home measures over 3500 square feet, twelve rooms, five bedrooms, four baths with three en-suite bedrooms. This expansive home is ready for the new owners to enjoy.
