The Anderson home follows the architecture of the Saltbox homes that convey years of American colonial history in a single glance. With distinctive high pitched asymmetrical roofs, and flat, unadorned exteriors, these homes show how people lived in the nation's earliest days, between the early 16th and late 17th centuries, adjusting their homes as needed to make things easier. Because of their unique features, Saltbox homes are also instantly recognizable, and among the iconic residences of the Northeast coast Saltbox homes got their name because they looked like the large asymmetrical wooden saltboxes everyone used in colonial times. New construction of this 3000 sq. ft. home has reversed the old clich to Thinking Inside The Box. By design the exterior appears to be a simple massive country barn centered on 5 plus acres. The land is a premium parcel located on top of and overlooking the entire Irish Hollow Valley. Once you enter the home the Barn is gone and you are now in the foyer leading to the grand staircase climbing to the second floor balcony area. The second floor is completely dedicated to the comfort of the Master bedroom suite. This area has lofty panoramic views from numerous windows. The suite has his & her bathrooms; his features an oversized walk in tiled shower and hers has a turn of the century soaking tub. There is a 12 X 11 WIC. The main floor /living area has the dining room, kitchen, living room, half bath and laundry. Designed to have the feel of a country farm house, using colors and built-ins to utilize every cubic space while warm with open spacious rooms. The massive country kitchen is designed for family dining with plenty of prep space and a walk in pantry. High end Wolf and Zero appliances complement the gourmet cook. With the panoramic views and plenty of space the kitchen will be the central room of this farm house, bringing back the days of old. The living room has numerous windows for the great vistas and plenty of natural lighting. Lavish built- in shelving frames the fireplace as well as the opposite wall. The lower level features a second master suite for guests with full bath and WIC. By design the third bedroom and bath has been framed but not finished. This allows the Buyer to design this area for their wants and needs. Additionally this could be a family room, media room, fitness center, home theatre, game room, etc., all with a full bath. The listing price could change with any build outs for the Buyer. In short, you need to visit this home to see what imagination and superior design can develop. The home is being sold unfurnished; however the furnishings can easily be negotiated on a separate Bill of Sale.
