Built as one of the original Showcase homes at Fox Hill, this month’s featured home leaves no detail overlooked. A ranch plan with a walk-out basement and nearly 5,000 finished sq. ft., this expansive, open home emanates light and serenity. The 1.51-acre lot on which the home sits contributes to its estate-like feel, as the sweeping driveway and front walk welcome you to the sophisticated glass-paneled front entrance.
Open the door to this spacious entry, where a spectacular rock wall spans the length of main and lower levels of the home, serving equally as a visual focal point, a structural wall, and as a functional surround for two of the home’s three fireplaces. Matching the interior stone to that on the exterior serves to bring the outside in—beautifully marrying the two areas.
Engineered wide-plank wood flooring in a neutral brushed oak tone flows throughout the home, providing an ideal palette for the natural shades of stone—from which darker hues are then pulled for use in the stained beams, stair hand rails, and planked, vaulted great room ceiling. Black window frames, patio and study doors, and stair balusters add a modern foil against the farmhouse rock, and—behind it all—Sherwin Williams Pure White brightens the walls, trim, and doors.
Custom metal and glass doors off of the foyer lead to a study, where a whimsical central light fixture keeps things from becoming too serious. Recessed, built-in cabinetry in a calming grey-green hue accented with cosmopolitan brushed brass hardware gives the room a stately nod and waits to hold books and sculptural pieces.
In the kitchen, custom cabinets extending to ceiling height not only provide tons of storage, but also eliminate that top layer of dust from accumulating. Open shelving on either end of one long counter offers convenient storage for cookbooks, dishes, or decorative items. Cabinet underlighting enhances work light and prevents darkened kitchen corners. The stunning wood-trimmed vent hood over the six-burner gas stove is stained to match the island base, creating harmonious balance.
Seen here from the opposite side, it’s clear that whoever is working in the kitchen needn’t be left out of family activity or restricted from enjoying the incredible views!
Tucked behind the kitchen, this convenient butler’s pantry serves as a holding area for serving dishes—clean or dirty. A sink and a second dishwasher make cleanup after large parties or family dinners easier than ever. A huge, walk-in pantry with more built-in cabinetry, counter top space, and electrical outlets serves as back-up kitchen prep space.
Surrounded by windows, the dining area is defined by a unique beamed and paneled ceiling inset. Dimmable recessed can lighting, in addition to the multi-armed chandelier, allow dinner to be romantic or as well-lit as you please.
Retreat to the primary suite, where another stone-faced gas fireplace awaits, along with a vaulted, beamed ceiling echoing that of the great room. Gliding barn doors, painted white, lead to the tiled, spa-like bath.
Another hint of stone on the back wall behind the tub keeps the rustic vibe in the modern chic of the gleaming tiled shower and large double vanity. Matte champagne plumbing and hardware fixtures play well off of the black window and shower door.
Not to be overshadowed, the lower level of this home lives up to the style precedent set by the main level. Rows of recessed beams define both seating and bar areas, and a third rock-surround gas fireplace at the entertainment area provides cozy ambiance. A wall of sliding glass doors—a benefit of situating the home on a walk-out lot—allow lots of light to enter, making the space feel more main-level and less like a basement.
A wood-paneled wall at the back of the wet bar adds a refined rustic touch, and black iron shelving and pendant lights compliment the windows and doors. Darker cabinetry suits the area, as well.
A dining/game area off of the wet bar is the perfect place to park snacks or a jigsaw puzzle.
And—in case you missed it—these custom iron doors lead to a wine room, which is both aesthetically pleasing with its rock walls and practically built, with climate control.
Lest you think that attention to detail runs short in the lower-level bathroom or in the laundry room, check this out! Vertical lines of mosaic tile stripe the walls of the basement shower, and softly colored sage green cabinetry with vertical shiplap trim grace the walls of the upscale laundry room.
Seen from the rear exterior, the handsome lines of a spiral staircase can be seen connecting the covered lower patio to the upper deck.
