The curbside statement is a powerful one – soaring windows light up the night; barely-there glass railings float, hinting at a multitude of alfresco living spaces. Stacked facades of wood, masonry and ultra-chic corrugated metal siding play off each other's strengths in a super-modern dream come true.
Inside, space extends upward to 10-foot ceilings and soaring windows; walnut stairs lead up to Kahrs white oiled oak floors for a muted touch of rustic chic that suits the space so well. Beyond the spacious living room and first street-facing balcony lies a stylish horizontal window and recessed dining room wall. Adjacent, find the principal balcony – oriented for maximum quality of natural light. Terraces on this floor and throughout augment Mother Nature's offerings in both position and style.
Sleek style and a pop of colour converge to yield drama in the powder room – the room's boxy fixtures are so on point. Beyond, the kitchen's Astro Kitchen design appears to be straight out of the pages of a design magazine – high-end appliances, sleek high-gloss white cabinetry, waterfall quartz countertops, and pops of rich walnut are exquisite. Opposite, windows over the gas fireplace lend a cozy, informal vibe. Daily meals and hangout time are a comfortable family affair. A third main floor balcony yields access to the yard below – fenced, private and well-sized, the options are endless.
On the second floor, a stairtop den becomes a wonderfully casual hideaway – whether for toys, TV or reading, it's the perfect complement to the floor's sleeping quarters, clever laundry zone, and sumptuous main bathroom clad in walnut, mosaic, and glass. In addition to the master, find two ample bedrooms, one with private terrace and walk-in closet.
Down the hallway, the master suite benefits from momentary seclusion. The ensuite's pebble floor and rain shower unite to produce an earthy vibe; a clever angular soaker tub allows moments of indulgence. His and hers sinks are a chic morning blessing. In the room, a clever floating wall produces roomy walk-through closet organization and wrap-around deck access leaves a grown-up outdoor hangout a delicious possibility.
On the third floor resides the king of the outdoor castles – the result is next-level living. Gorgeous lighting, covered living space, Jacuzzi rough-in, and expansive windows set to maximize treetop views over New Edinburgh – it's unabashedly urban and totally cool.
The home's floor plan ends below, where closet storage and mudroom garage entry makes moms and dads swoon. In addition, find entry to a separate suite that leaves endless options for tenants, nanny, or extended family. One bedroom, a three-piece bathroom and open living area with gas fireplace and a roughed-in kitchen leads to yard and street access.
The design has thought of everything – central vac and ingenious retractable hose system, heated bathroom floors, Control 4 smart home system that yields remote 21st century convenience to sound, lighting and security. A walkable community with dynamic village appeal lies around the corner. Move in secure in the knowledge that home life could be no more well-built, state-of-the-art, family-friendly, or urban chic.
