Contemporary Mid-Century home with the master suite and a second bedroom with full partially accessible bath for the in-laws located on the main level. This 5740 square foot home was renovated back in 1988-1990. All of the major systems were removed and replaced. Costs to renovate were in the $600,000 range. Between 2010 and 2016 another $250,000 in improvements were made to the home. The home has three heating and air conditioning zones and 400 amp electrical service. The garage has high ceilings, insulated walls with new drywall and trim. New insulated doors with windows and a keyless entry. The architectural design allows for entertaining and large gatherings, allows an owner to age in place because of the thoughtful interior design elements that allow one floor living on the main level. Wider hallways, large door openings, an abundance of sunshine and lots of full height glass windows make this home open and airy. The kitchen serves as the focal point of this open floor plan with ceilings that top out at 13 feet and French doors that lead to a large wrap around deck that covers almost 3 sides of the home. The boundaries between interior and exterior are almost eliminated. Dine outdoors, enjoy the views of woodlands, the mountain views across the river and the rowers below. Families of hawks ride the updrafts in your backyard. Twelve foot wide Pella glass doors create welcome views and natural light into the home. The second bedroom on the main level has been transformed into a tranquil oasis with panoramic views and the perfect environment for a home office. The main floor enjoys wide plank Brazilian Teak flooring that intersects with natural stone in the foyer, a massive fireplace wall in the living room and supports a 9 foot opera size Grand piano. The large living room flows into the dining room and can handle both formal and informal functions. With a simple change of furniture this home has entertained over 250 wedding guests and 180 for an engagement party. The lower level has a large in-law or au pair suite with bedroom, full bath, living room, dining area and its own outside entrance. There is a new spa bath, pool table area, yoga room and three bedrooms with three full baths. The lower level family room also acts as a changing area for family and guests who use the Armond Aquatech custom swimming pool with electric pool cover. This home has many upgrades and has been lovingly maintained.
