Frank Lloyd Wright famously said that “space is the breath of art” and this modernist masterpiece is an architectural work of art. The home is a tapestry of natural light, open living, and comfortable entertaining areas accented by dramatic vaulted ceilings. Every inch of the interior was designed in a way that leaves the occupants feeling relaxed and at ease. Natural light permeates every room of the property making the spaces feel bright and open. Inside you will discover a mosaic of unique natural woods including Douglas fir beams, eight-to-ten-inch white oak flooring, cypress, luxurious western red cedar, teak, cocobolo and African padauk accent walls. The canvas is complete with an intriguing mix of contemporary materials such as epoxy coated blackened A-36 steel, reclaimed brick and flooring and nine-foot-high glass windows and doors. The owner, architect and builder meticulously designed and created a stunning sanctuary on an acre plus lot in one of Raleigh’s most desirable legacy neighborhoods.
Upon entering the spacious foyer, the ambiance of the Douglas fir beams is highlighted by the accent of the cocobola wood defining the stairway. Ahead are the entertainment areas of the main level featuring expansive vaulted ceilings, steel and fir beams accenting the multiple seating and dining areas and two gas fireplaces. The gourmet kitchen lacks no accouterment and is the fulcrum of the entertainment space. The look is chic, modern and classy!
Behind a hidden door is a secluded, spacious primary suite offering full views into the private rear yard. Vaulted beamed ceilings, eight-inch white oak flooring, a fireplace and western red cedar accents showcase the room. The owner’s bath features floating vanities, a chic shower with multi-colored LED lighting and a unique accent “slat” wall with reclaimed heart pine. Additionally, the main level boasts three ensuite guest rooms, each with a unique loft area, plus an executive office accented with steel and reclaimed brick.
Accessed by a flighted stair with unique laminated PSC steps are a secluded guest suite and a loft lounge overlooking the entertainment areas on the main level. The basement features a rec/exercise room with high ceilings plus a media room with multi-level seating.
The nine-foot glass windows and sliding doors lining the home’s rear offer seamless movement between the indoor and outdoor entertainment areas. Outside you will discover a spacious covered porch with gas fireplace and grilling area. The porch leads to a fifty-foot infinity pool with a spa, sunbathing area and a gas firebox. The pool house offers changing areas, an outdoor rain shower as well as a private porch with a wood-burning fireplace. After swimming, grab your putter and practice your stroke on the artificial putting green.
The driveway leads to a multi-car carport with vaulted beamed ceilings and then to a motor court and an adjoining four-car garage ideal for auto enthusiasts.
