Kitchen: The large, open kitchen boasts many modern touches, including quartz countertops and a subway-tile backsplash. Black custom-built cabinets, including a wet bar and wine rack, add a dramatic and sophisticated look.

Attention to detail is evident throughout this unique home, including extensive custom millwork, an exposed faux-painted structural steel beam, barn sliding doors and custom-built window seat benches.

Office: The open floor plan is great for both entertaining and using every inch of space. Flooring on the main level is a chamber-bean colored porcelain tile with a wood-plank look.

Guests are given an immediate sense of the homeowners’ style by the artwork and display pieces in the home office.   

Den:  A two-story atrium overlooks a modern, sunken family room, perfect for game-day relaxing. The nearby rear balcony and outdoor living area feature a gas fireplace and no-mow turf.

Theater:  The design and details in the theater—film reel on the ceiling, multi-level seating and a hidden door revealing the owner’s movie collection—is everything a movie lover dreams of.
