Spacious and utterly enchanting, this impressive Mill Creek Post and Beam (authentic timber frame construction) beauty represents the quintessential mountain-lake home. Much admired for its many original features, this home has been featured in “Timber Homes” magazine. Expansive living areas (with over 7,000 square feet fully finished) are beautifully laid out over heart pine floors, beneath vaulted and beamed ceilings. Five enormous bedrooms (plus bunk room), each with full bath, and one contained within its own apartment, provide hospitable spaces, which are both practical and lovely.
Living areas include a beautifully appointed kitchen with Sub Zero and Wolf appliances, large farmhouse-style sinks and hand-finished antiqued cabinetry. The Great Room is truly “great”, featuring hammer beam & King Post accents, a 2 story wall of windows, impressive stone fireplace with flush hearth, and French doors to the screened porch. Above, a large loft may serve as a home office, games or sleeping area. A special windowed staircase leads to the Tower Room, with its 360-degree windows and numerous possible functions (studio, crafts room, exercise loft, etc.)
The Dining Room is also multi-functional –convenient, bright, overlooking a waterfall, and large enough to accommodate dinner parties while maintaining the warmth of a beloved family gathering area.
Two main floor bedrooms, with old-world fixtures and cathedral ceilings and a further two sizable bedroom suites at the lower level (one of which has a bunk room attached) provide privacy and comfort for all denizens of the home. A large lower level sitting room, adjacent billiards room, courtyard and covered hot tub, snacking kitchen and stone-lined wine cellar provide comfort and entertainment.
A further, full apartment with breakfast kitchen is located above the garage, for privacy and function. Nestled into its woodland setting on 4.33 ac, this home looks as though it “belongs” amid the towering pines, above the spring-fed creek, and anchored by a stone-lined waterfall and mature landscaping.
