Listing Description

Resting on over one acre of beautifully landscaped property, this custom contemporary home brings a dramatic floor plan and fabulous amenities together. Entertain on the highest level, or relax in complete comfort, this home accommodates a wide range of tastes and lifestyles. Artfully framed by tall trees and mature shrubbery, this quiet setting in the desirable Deerfield section is only minutes from shopping, recreation, top rated schools and NYC commuter trains.

Flanked by broad staircases, the foyer opens to a garden area, complete with koi pond and set beneath a vaulted ceiling where skylights usher in abundant natural light. From this remarkable entry, flows an amazing home where nature's beauty has been integrated into an environment made for entertaining and comfortable daily living with feng shui balance and energy. Rarely does a home so fully embrace its surroundings. From nearly every room and vantage point you enjoy views of over one acre of beautifully landscaped property.

Nothing has been overlooked, as custom walls meet soaring ceilings, and spacious rooms flow effortlessly from one inviting area to the next. From the gallery foyer, you enter the living room with wood-burning fireplace and a wall of windows. The living room spills into the banquet size dining room where sliders lead the way out to a wraparound deck and views of a private backyard that includes your own tennis court.

Clean lines, substantial cabinets and counter space distinguish the chef's kitchen. A massive center island includes a large breakfast counter, cook tops and professional exhaust above. As high end appliances are arranged for easy access, the adjoining breakfast area takes advantage of the sunlight pouring in through large windows and sliders leading to the deck.

Nestled in the sleeping wing, generous bedrooms and baths include a luxurious master suite with its own private deck off the master bath. The second level divides in two, depending on which staircase you choose. Both overlook the gallery. On the left is a bedroom with den/sitting area and en suite bath and on the right is a study with large closet storage.

The finished ground level meets the needs of everyone in the household. Along with a large family room, there is a recreation room, workshop, exercise room, craft and art rooms, kitchenette and lots of storage space. A full bath with dressing rooms and sauna leads the way to an indoor pool with atrium. Exercise, entertain and play year-round in this incredible space.
