Set on 9 Acres, this modern residence is a true expressive use of modern materials, in a secluded wooded area. The Architect set out to create a house that was on w/ its natural surroundings. The curvilinear front facade is composed of contrasting metal finishes brushed w/ mirror panels. Panels arranged in a rhythmic sequence engaging nature's ever changing seasons. A modern airy kitchen has a white lacquer cabinets that accent rich wood paneling throughout the main floor. The ceiling heights are over 9 feet on all floors rising to 12 feet in the dining and living room spaces adding to the drama of the open spaces opening onto the pool and pool terrace. Custom metal and wood stairs connect the floors with sculptural form. Large floor to ceiling windows frame the private woods beyond as if they were paintings. Nothing but flora, fauna, foliage are seen from every room. Attached to the home is a private infinity-edge pool caressing the endless nature beyond.
