The heart of the home is a stunning and sensitively designed hearth room addition(2010) that tastefully combines the past with the present. It's semi-open space concept connects the kitchen, dining room, screen porch and lower level game room all while preserving the pre-existing architecture. The hearth room features 10' ceilings, built in custom cabinetry, a full masonry woodburning fireplace with gas starter, wet bar, hand scraped timber bookshelves and sub zero refrigerator drawers. The room overlooks two stone patios and a fully fenced backyard. The kitchen also features custom cabinetry,granite counters, 6 burner cook top, new double oven and pantry. The mud room is a dream, sun shines through the original stained glass window that was moved when the addition was built. It is spacious, has tons of storage, a sink and a lower dog bowl drawer. A formal living room is complete with its distinctive Prairie-style quarter sawn wood banding, built in bookcases and narrow Roman brick gas fireplace.and authentic Double stained glass doors lead to the heated sunroom a perfect place to watch the snow falling. The paneled dining room, large foyer, and office complete the elegant first floor. A graceful staircase and an impressive stained glass window lead to the second floor gallery hallway. Here you'll find a spacious primary suite including a beautiful spa bath with a dramatic two-story stained glass window, steam shower, private lavatory, polished nickel fixtures and 4 imported French alabaster sconces Three additional bedrooms and 2 full baths complete this floor.
