On approach, rich landscaping colludes with surrounding trees to frame your view. The eye is drawn towards two storey elliptical windows and a solid double door - a curved interlocking path leads the way.

Inside, a roomy entryway with a built-in closet and open to above ceilings produces dramatic first impressions. Your first sign of a thoughtful family home? The open floor plan with smart transitions: elegant, spacious rooms fit for entertaining, and locales where a casual Friday hockey night with the clan feels right. Marvel at how they coexist in exceptional harmony. What you can't see may impress you even more. An ionized water system, efficient heating and cooling, fail-proof connectivity, commercial-grade construction, and a top notch security system produce a solid, healthy place to live. First steps into the open to above living room dazzle - soaring windows let in light, and the nearby dining room beckons. Such chic spaces throughout benefit from refined details; 10 inch baseboards, custom maple millwork, smooth-edged walls and gleaming hardwood become a subtle home signature. With all this and the architectural interest of the tray ceiling with recessed lighting in the dining room, dinner parties are memorable to say the least. Access the kitchen via the main hall or through the dining room, and discover a new love for cooking. Space-saving organizers are found in every drawer and cupboard, Sub-Zero appliances exceed every demand, and two drawer fridges are life-savers for families on the go. A second sink in the granite-topped island is handy, as is the workspace-nook for managing schedules. Ingenious architectural design finds the nearby eat-in area in a turret. Here, access to the large second floor deck offers views over Mud Creek and woods beyond. With natural gas barbecue to set the scene for summer entertaining, it feels like a cottage refuge every day. Adjacent, the open to above family room gets cozy vibes from a gas fireplace and built-ins for technology and entertainment organization. Note the surround-sound speakers sitting in the corners, and know that the rest of the house is wired for sound. Back in the main hall, a well turned out powder room precedes laundry and a spacious mudroom. Convenient garage access is amplified by stairs going directly to the basement - extra curricular gear is handled and out of sight. French doors introduce a traditional home office - productivity is inevitable where solid wood french blinds manage a lovely view and smart built-ins deal with the rest.

Appreciate the custom millwork and wrought-iron banister on the curved staircase and make your way up. The captain's nook overlooking the family room stretches natural light into the second level. Three bedrooms make a case for great proportions and picturesque views, while the upscale main bath serves with panache.

With its sweeping natural vistas and ample space, the master bedroom is an idyllic adult retreat. A reading nook and vaulted ceilings are visual delights, and a remote-controlled fireplace produces daily indulgence. Optimal organization reigns in the walk-in closet; wardrobe conundrums are banished as space is abundant here. Heated floors and granite touches are a great start to a host of luxuries in the ensuite; travertine marble, a jacuzzi tub and walk-in shower with therapeutic body jets round out an enviable morning routine.

A walk-out basement completes the host of family-friendly benefits in this home. Double patio doors walk-out onto a glorious backyard; young ones are free to enjoy nature's best while parents feel comfortable in their children's safety. Back inside, a sprawling rec room with plush carpeting and high ceilings offers an open, bright space for kids to be autonomous at home. With direct garage access, a full bedroom and bath yield the perfect nanny or in-law suite.

The piece de resistance? An indoor pool. Set in a completely separate zone for optimal temperature and security control, this pool features ionized water for a gentle touch on the skin - six out of seven days swimming? Harsh chemicals are not a problem here. With its own separate HVAC system, maintenance and moisture in the balance of home is a non-issue. Anti-slip heated floors lead to a jacuzzi tub and double patio doors - leave them wide open during summer months for a resort-like feel.
