Looking for a private country retreat with the convenience of small town living? This Fonthill home has everything you’re looking for.
You’re struck initially by the ruggedly elegant exterior, made from an old barn’s foundation stones. Inside, the country manor feeling continues with warm Italian engineered oak hardwood flooring throughout, enhanced by beautiful custom cabinetry. If you find yourself thinking of Frank Lloyd Wright as you wander, don’t be surprised. The custom-designed trim was inspired by that master architect’s work.
This is a home designed to celebrate its surroundings. Expansive U.V. protected windows gently tinted for privacy bring the landscape into every room. Vaulted ceilings and an open floor plan draws your eye from the spacious dining area, to the living room with its welcoming wood burning fireplace and elongated concrete hearth. The chefs kitchen provides an enviable abundance of storage in beautiful Art Craft custom cabinetry and keen cooks will appreciate the Miele appliances including the Speed oven (microwave/convection oven), double ovens, dishwasher, five-burner “Induction” cook top, panelled Sub zero refrigerator, two Jenn Air refrigerated drawers, Liebherr Wine Fridge and reverse osmosis drinking water system.
Subtle pot lights and uncluttered lines everywhere keep your focus on the stunning view. The living and dining areas offer a leafy, forest perspective but from the large windows of the cozy family room as well as from the spacious master bedroom and ensuite bathroom one floor above, you can gaze over the greens of Lookout Point Golf Club, enjoying the pleasure of well-tended grounds without ever having to push a lawn-mower!
Has space to dream always been just a dream? The master bedroom will put your longings to rest. With vaulted ceilings and hardwood floors, lit by a spectacular antique chandelier, this is a retreat for two, complete with a spacious closet and dressing area. The master ensuite bathroom is a wonder of Crema marfil marble tile, an immense soaker tub and rainfall shower in a stunning glass enclosure. Secluded and yet offering sweeping views of the ravine and golf course, this is a suite to dream of….and to dream in. Next to the master bedroom is a second space, ideal for a guest, a nursery, a luxurious dressing area or simply, more dreaming.
A spacious second bedroom charms you with its sisal carpet, eight-ft. ceilings, built-in window seats overlooking the ravine and an ensuite bathroom, complete with a custom floating vanity, backlit custom mirror – sure to mesmerize any teenager – a glass shower and gorgeous ceramic tiling.
A lower level family room beckons, with custom built-in cabinetry designed for a wall mounted tv, with built in B&W surround sound speakers. Berber carpeting, and an elegant wet bar complete with a dishwasher and custom Art Craft cabinetry make this the perfect spot for entertaining – and the the plumbing is already in place should you want a full kitchen in future. A lower level bathroom with a custom under-lit floating vanity and custom mirror, as well as a glass shower and sleek ceramic flooring make this an ideal guest area.
This home hold many surprises – two spacious offices, a cozy ‘Scotch room’ den at the entrance to the home, and a striking stairwell design, featuring thin, silvery rods of steel that create a waterfall effect between the first and second floors. Like the rest of this home, you’ll find it unforgettable.
