Masterful design and rustic luxury are uniquely combined in this spacious, historic carriage house conversion located in sought-after Gwynedd Valley. This one-of-a-kind home has tastefully developed over time, always with the ease of living and entertaining in mind. The open concept floor plan, with large yet intimate spaces, combined with serene views will draw you in providing an oasis of calm. The dramatic interior spaces of this home showcase magnificent exposed timbers and structural supports of the original 1881 carriage home. Arriving the first thing you will notice is the beautifully manicured landscaping and a custom cedar driveway gate. Push a few buttons and drive around to the front of the house where the country gardens and private meditation courtyard welcome you home. The two-car garage plus carport provide ample covered parking space and the breezeway and wrap-around porch are not only charming, but keep you covered from garage to front door, even in the worst storm. And if it is raining, the copper rain chains on the garage and breezeway gutters will definitely make you appreciate that rain! Walking through the main entrance, a sharp eye will notice the tulip design in the leaded glass of the front door that mimics the tulips in the custom stained glass window directly ahead in the sunroom. A spectacular spiral chandelier with venetian hand blown glass will draw your eye upwards all the way to the third floor master loft. The great room highlights original barn beams and ladders built into the walls. Warm maple flooring in the great room continues up to the three bedrooms on the second floor and to the master loft on the third level. Built in shaker style closets and drawers in each bedroom and the master area provide ample storage space, and window seats in the south facing bedrooms offer a cozy space to enjoy the views of the gardens and spacious yard. The kitchen and dining area feature modern stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, custom Dutch Made cabinetry, a Franke double sink and a stunning Sub Zero wine refrigerator. Opening the kitchen door, you step out into a beautiful outdoor living space complete with 43' pool with stamped concrete decking, large EP Henry patio and a koi pond with waterfall. Grab a cool drink from the outdoor undercounter refrigerator, turn on the pool fountains and relax in your secluded oasis. The property is tucked at the end of a cul-de-sac and is surrounded by magnificent homes that provide stolen vistas over greenery everywhere.
