It's a bit surprising that this contemporary home has been on the market for a few months. A brand-new build with artfully placed windows and light, open spaces in a terrific location, the two-story house reads as both energizing and peaceful.
The well-designed, 2,306-square-foot home looks to have integrated its leafy surrounds and to feature an easy flow among rooms. It has three bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a modern kitchen is open to the living room and dining area, which feature a wall of windows.
There are more floor-to-ceiling windows in the private study with floor to ceiling windows, and the master bathroom has a soaking tub and walk-in shower. The well-placed windows on the second floor make the treetops part of the decor and bring in lots of light while seeming sheltered and private at the same time. Outside, there's unique garage/carport combo that looks great and will accommodate two cars.
