Main House: Main Floor

Photos of Main Floor >>

The main floor  (level two of three levels) of the main house has 3931 square feet under roof, which includes the garage (816 sq ft) and the screened room adjacent to the great room (520 sq ft.)  It does not include the extensive covered decking that surrounds two sides of the house, or the covered front porch.

Living in this beautiful home is a visual delight, with views from every window of trees, animals, birds, and of course… the sky, the canyon, and the valley beyond.  Sunsets are savored, and time is set aside to sip wine with cheese and crackers as the most beautiful ones are viewed with awe.  Time slows down as the sun suddenly dips below the far-off mountains…..

Spaces on this floor include:

  • Two-story entrance area
  • Great room with dining and gathering spaces
  • Kitchen with large walk-in pantry
  • Library
  • Office
  • Bath Room
  • Multi-purpose room: office, hobby and laundry areas
  • Screen room
  • Oversized garage
  • Decks
  • Beautifully constructed entry porch and patio, with waterfall and small pond

Integration of indoor/outdoor spaces is accomplished not only with large windows, but also with doors in several rooms so that the surrounding covered deck and the screen room can be accessed easily.  Double french doors open out to a spacious screened room from the great room;  single french doors open to the covered deck from the kitchen and the office; and a sliding french door opens to the deck from the multi-purpose room.

This home has the unique ability to feel like an intimate family home and function well while entertaining.  It is an elegant but uncomplicated,  casually comfortable space.    People who love to hang out in the kitchen sipping wine while cooking and chatting will love the kitchen arrangement that easily accommodates two or more cooks.  When it’s time to sit down to the meal, the formal dining area seats 8 to 10 people, and the more casual nook table is an intimate overlook spot, with a pub table that seats 4.

The wood burning fireplace in the great room, and the gas burning fireplace in the library, are welcome comforts in the cold winter months.  In the warmer months, gatherings can spill out onto the deck or into the beautiful screen room, where one can see and hear the water falling into the small pond beside the house, take a nap, read a book, or chat with friends.  When house guests stay a while, there is plenty of space for people to seek out a quiet corner when they need a little private time, or to separate noisy children into areas removed from adults who desire a more sedate conversation.
