Located on a charming and close-in Reliez Valley court, this newly completed modern farmhouse sits on a beautifully landscaped, level, half-acre parcel. Thoughtfully created by a trio of local talent including Deborah Laroche of Townson Homes, architectural designer Bruce Mastick, and landscape architect, Peter Koenig, the home boasts clean lines, exceptional finishes, and refined sophistication.
The open, single-story floor plan was designed for seamless indoor/outdoor living with oversized picture windows, wall of sliders, and French and Dutch doors connecting to the loggia and rear yard. The loggia features Connecticut Bluestone pavers and a stone fireplace making it ideal for year-round enjoyment. Additional interior highlights include light-filled rooms, neutral color palette, high ceilings, white oak, wide-planked hardwood floors, and smooth interior walls.
The magical exterior offers privacy, mature landscape, a meandering pathway that borders the sprawling lawn and gardens, an apple tree, and detached guesthouse with full bathroom.
