A private road serves Horseshoe Hill, a 50+ year old neighborhood including 15 homes on over 100 acres with a pond and tennis courts. This home is set on 8.5 acres, with 5 acres of natural woods including rare foliage. This Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Usonian home beautifully melds the indoors with the outdoors. With numerous windows, skylights, and doors leading outside, the tranquil and beautifully manicured grounds are just a step away. This one-level home offers 4 bedrooms, 4.1 baths as well as plenty of privacy, charm, and modern architectural details. The updated kitchen boasts dark granite counter tops, tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances including double wall oven, Dacor range and warming drawer. A generous butler's pantry with washer/dryer offers convenience and ease. Look out over the two-tiered kitchen island to the open breakfast area followed by the large living room with a stone feature wall with wood-burning fireplace insert and built-in shelving. A spectacular picture window overlooks the large flagstone patio, koi pond and flat yard. Adjacent is the unique dining room with hand-crafted tile floors, built-in wet bar and a water feature as well as sliding glass doors on either side leading to 2 patios. Continue through French doors to the large, private studio with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and charming fireplace, connected to a stunning sun room with complete glass enclosure and to a private full bath. With its separate entrance, this wing could double as an in-law suite. On the other side of the house, find a family room with fireplace, another patio entrance and built-in shelving.
