When the homeowners decided to build on this plot of land, they took on quite a large project, but the result is remarkable.  By paving their way through creeks and steep, beautiful hills, they sat their house in the perfect location, creating an envy inspiring, million-dollar view.

Walking through the home’s towering red door fit with beautiful decorated glass, you can immediately tell the owners created a one-of-a-kind home.  The couple has lived in numerous states across the country, and their favorite features, which piece together their custom estate, inspired each section of the home.

First, you’re greeted by an incredible great room, complete with large indoor column structures, two ceiling fans, a lovely fireplace, and that mind-blowing view across the entire back wall of the home.  Off the living room, the kitchen is a true chef’s delight. The large gourmet range, detailed cabinetry, vast counter space, huge pantry, bar, and large eating area bring one thing to mind: space.  In this home, there’s so much room to work, eat, gather, cook; there’s so much space to just be.









Standing behind the gorgeous kitchen island or when sitting in the lovely sunroom located just off the kitchen, you look out, through the custom windows and across to the vast landscape of continuous, green trees.  The view extending out from the kitchen stretches out beyond the endless bluffs.  Even indoors, you feel connected to nature, peaceful, and open.

With this home, there’s no need to fear opening the windows and doors, letting nature have an easy way in.  The privacy is something that simply cannot be found in a suburban development.  Like the privacy, there’s character in every piece of this home, and it was all built with a purpose in mind from the large master suite, to the super-sized walkout basement with three huge bedrooms, all the way to the large four-car garage.

On the other side of the home, down the hall a short way from the study, the master bedroom is simply beautiful and spacious (there’s that word again) with access to the massive deck spanning almost the entire length of the home.  The deck is one of the home’s most memorable features, and the view is something you just have to see to believe.  From the deck, you have a clear view of sprawling trees, the natural glade on the land, and the two pole barns on the land.  The barns are two very functional features of the home.  One pole barn is a heated workshop with doors on both ends, perfect for creating a cool breeze using only the rolling winds of the bluffs.  The other is large enough to hold an entire RV, no problem!

Imagine waking up in the master suite to the cool breeze blowing through the door to the deck all around the room, sun streaming in, or soaking in the hot tub on another one of the home’s private decks with a glass of wine.  You can watch the sunsets to the west with perfect clarity as it lowers behind the trees in the distance.
