After yrs of searching for a barn to restore or convert to residence the original owners of this stone steel & glass contemporary embraced the necessity of building. A 5 acre parcel on coveted Sheaff's Lane was ideally suited to the couples exceptional vision & creativity & in tandem w/ historical guidelines to be of sympathetic architectural appeal to the main stone estate the residence at 7131 took shape. Upon exterior inspection it is difficult to decide if the house was "always there" as the extraordinary landscape gardens & vistas appear to be too at ease with the structure to have existed independently. A raised front entry w/filtered koi pond & intricate hatched overhead pergola features a multi-colored slate terrace in shades of plum shale & black. In an effort to encourage the outside in the slate pattern continues into the 2 story foyer & differing combinations of the material play throughout the 1st level of the home. With gallery quality wall space the foyer opens to a 45 foot great room with 20 foot ceilings and custom clerestory windows. Exposed riveted steel construction define this expansive interior space while a four sided glass fireplace divides the dining room from the seated living area with a column of stainless steel beads mimicking the silhouette of a traditional chimney. A full wall of glass with exit to raised deck streams light into this gathering space while offering long vistas to the tiered rear yard and steel wall which separates the lawns & gardens from the woods which lie beyond. Continuing the open plan the kitchen family & breakfast room all with large plate glass windows form the core of the home. Details such as coffered steel ceilings and long views of mahogany maple allees and vast plantings of bronze and green feathery american grasses.
