At home

nmag0117_home_img_0190_800pxThis Nantucket-style, stone- and shingle-sided custom home has stunning golf course and sunset views from almost every room. The formal foyer is adjacent to a 30-foot tapered stair tower, and leads into an great room, dining area and kitchen with twelve-foot coffered ceilings. The kitchen’s focal point is a round walnut and leather banquette with seating for ten.

The rear of the home features a large covered stone porch, complete with fireplace, outdoor kitchen and custom motorized screens and shutter systems. A formal sitting room and mahogany-stained office share long uninterrupted views down the fairway.

The second floor features a six-room master suite—including a bedroom with fireplace and private balcony, his-and-her walk-in closets, morning kitchen, master bath, and master laundry room—and a private bedroom suite with adjoining bath.

The stairs to the lower level open into the home’s media room, complete with a wall-sized projection TV, a game area and walnut bar, workout room and two additional guest bedrooms with adjoining bath.

The home is truly a “smart house” equipped with state-of-the-art lighting control and home automation systems. All levels of the home can be accessed by an elevator.
