This morning, you and your son shared sunup in the fields across the way, the one they call Big Rock Meadow. Tonight, it’s a pajama party with a brilliant cast that includes the Big Dipper, the Milky Way and Polaris, along with the moon hanging heavy to the west. The theater for this nightly performance is that stunning sunroom of floor to ceiling windows that stands out like a jewel box both day and night. The same show appears from the nearby deck jutting westward like the bow of an elegant yacht. This is a Martis Camp estate where gathering comes easy and often at all points of its 6,379 square feet. It’s a home where entertaining thrives throughout, a showcase of modern design that was acknowledged by American Institute of Architecture’s award-winning commendation to architect Blaze Makoid. Sleekness prevails all the way to the most subtle details. The most prominent display of grace is the living area. Soaring, windowed walls run the length of the great room and dining room, offering beautiful sunset views towards the mountains. The setting is bright and positive. Beyond is a wrap-around patio with hot tub, firepit, and covered dining area with double-facing fireplace and views of the meadow and mountains. Just past the graceful staircase beyond the front door is a private wine cellar holding up to 1,000 bottles. The lower level features a large recreation/media room with space for the likes of billiards, ping pong or air hockey. From here, you can step beyond the doors to a grassy area ideal for refining your snowman making skills. On the top level is the primary suite with views and fireplace, a kids’ room with four double bunks, and two guest suites, one whose use of windows affords sweeping views of the forest and mountains beyond. There’s also an office.
This 5-bed, 5-bath (two additional half-baths) home has Caesarstone kitchen counters, Henrybuilt cabinets, and a flooring scheme of oak, concrete and carpet. Appliances are Miele and Sub-Zero. The exterior is accented by black stained cedar and the property is pleasantly landscaped, a complement to the stargazing, entertaining, and storytelling taking place in the big-windowed room that – 12 hours from now – serves up inspiring morning views of the meadow and mountains beyond.
