Tucked away and practically invisible from the road, you take our steep mountain driveway to the top of the property, where a climate-controlled 3.5 car garage provides easy access for your vehicles. There are also separate entrances to the home in the front (foyer and walkout basement) and in the rear patio. Our fully equipped luxury kitchen boasts high end features that will make anyone who loves to cook happy, including a Wolf 6 burner gas stove, a double oven, a massive SubZero refrigerator and an oversized stainless steel farm sink. Two dishwashers keep the dishes clean and available. Seating in the kitchen area includes a table for 8 and 6 bar stools. The dining room also has a table with seating for 8. The first floor family room has seating for 8-10 and is centered around the beautiful stone gas fireplace that feels just right on a cool maintain evening. The first floor office is a great place to get some work out of the way during your stay or to play a game of chess on our hand carved board, while sitting on our kings chairs. The master bedroom is massive and inviting, with a seating area for two and access to the outdoors with a private balcony. The master bathroom is spa-like, with double sinks, a soaker tub, a large stone shower and two extra large walk-in closets.

For cooler evenings, our home has two features which will add to your enjoyment. The first is a massive stone outdoor fireplace with matching stone benches. Making smores is absolutely necessary! To the right of the outdoor patio is our incredible Jacuzzi hot-tub, which is built into the woods and accessed using our "Stairway to Heaven". When you reach the top of the hot-tub deck, you simply remove the hot tub cover and step down into heaven. Our hot tub has amazing views, as you are surrounded completely by mature trees, yet can look up and count stars by the hundreds. In the fall & winter months, you can even see a waterfall across the valley from our home. The second floor has three nicely decorated bedrooms--each a little different than the other.
