Welcome to 17007 Barn Ridge Drive! This incredibly striking, and architecturally unique contemporary is located in a neighborhood of custom-built homes on two-acre plus lots, nestled in a sylvan setting with lovely trees and lawns. The home is constructed of brick and has a beautiful stone and wood entranceway that is framed by a vaulted porch ceiling with windows above the front door. One enters to a spacious foyer which has a dramatic, two-story ceiling and a staircase to the upper level with a gallery overlook of both the front foyer, as well as a large family room on the back of the home. The vaulted ceiling extends from the front foyer over the staircase gallery and to the back, where it becomes a cathedral ceiling in the family room.
To the left and right of the foyer are found the formal Dining and Living Rooms, which both have windows facing the front of the home. Just beyond the foyer is an entrance to the kitchen on the left side, and a stairwell entrance opoosite, that goes to a spacious lower level Recreation room. Beyond this is the Family Room, which features a two-story stone fireplace on one wall, and on the opposite, a wall of ardced windows following the roof line of the cathedral ceiling, which overlook the back deck and lawn. The spacious kitchen has granite countertops, stainless appliances, and an island cooktop, with custom wood cabinetry, as well as an eat-in breakfast area at the back. There is a laundry room off of the breakfast area to the left, which provides an entrance to the three-car garage as well as a small powder room. On the opposite side of the breakfast area, is an exit through glass doors to a charming, new screened-in porch that attaches to the deck, and features an elegant vaulted, wood ceiling with recessed lighting and an island fan. There is an additional doorway from the screened porch that opens out to the deck. The deck extends from here to the other side of the home, next to the family room windows. A small staircase leads from here, down to the lawn, where there is a stone walkway that goes around the perimeter of the deck. The spacious lawn provides room outside for family recreational activities.
This home features custom built-ins and wood features throughout. The living room, found to the right of the foyer, has windows overlooking the front lawn, on the front side, and on the opposite wall are four rectangular openings that allow a view to a hallway. The hallway extends from the foyer to the Master Bedroom suite, which is found at the end, on this wing of the home. The Master Suite features a luxury bath with a separate dressing area, and a closet behind a mirrored wall, as well as built-in storage underneath windows that overlook the back lawn. Also found on this wing is a nice library/office which has bookshelves on two walls, and three large windows that also look out upon the treed lawn on the back side of the home.
The upper level is accessed from the main staircase, in the front foyer. Upstairs there are three bedrooms (one currently used as a sitting room); and two full baths. One bath is a private bath adjoining a bedroom, and the other is found in the hallway. The gallery staircase is the focal point of the elegant Foyer, and has views of both the Family Room on the back, as well as the Foyer on the front side.
The lower level has an expansive Recreation Room with both tile and carpeting and windows that look out on the back and side lawns. One end has a built-in wood storage closet and cabinet and a sink. At the other end is a glass door that exits to the outside, where there is a small patio. Additionally, a fifth bedroom and private bath offers a nice place for guests to stay. The lower level provides space for an exercise room, as well as expansive storage and utility rooms, in addition to the main recreation area.
This home is designed for elegant entertaining as well as relaxed family living in a beautiful setting. It is close by to country clubs and public golf courses, shopping, dining, and other amenities. This unique home provides the feeling of a secluded lodge in the wooded countryside, where one can enjoy warm evenings beside the stone fireplace overlooking the lovely deck and treed lawn outside; or likewise, enjoy sitting outside in the summertime, enjoying cool breezes from inside the lovely screened porch, or the sunshine on the back deck!
