There’s a lively thread that courses this Martis Camp home and its yards, one where kids may search for gold and where others find solace in its rhythm. It’s the creek that slips under the glass bridgeway separating the primary suite from the main home and that later reappears for an encore on the back patio that gazes off toward the forests and pathways and to the fifth hole of the Tom Fazio golf course beyond. That water feature was a key element for designers Chris Harris and Tom Stringer of the Chartwell Design Group who integrated its energy into this 7,397-square-foot mountain modern estate. Continuing with that design and energy are intricate details like the artistic use of tile, the steel beams that run the length of the ceiling, and the pocket doors that disappear between the great room and patio. The sliding window at the breakfast nook allows for conversations between those in the kitchen and whoever’s manning the grill in the covered barbecue bay on the expansive patio. The hallway to the primary bedroom is an elevated, glassed-in bridge that traverses the creek, arriving at a scene with stunning views. The media room is blessed with a liberal use of natural light as well with its wall of windows and a door that leads to the patio and hot tub. Upstairs is a bedroom and a bunk room that looks out over that forest beyond the creek that doubles as a kid’s paradise.
A stunning addition to this nearly two-acre lot is a guest house on the far side of the circular drive. Beyond its front door is a tall, double sided fireplace casting a glow on the great room with bar and wine cooler to one side and an office on the other side. There’s a spacious patio beyond the great room’s sliding doors and a bedroom with a murphy bed that slips away and seamlessly converts the room into a media room. Further into the woods and just a few minutes down the adjacent path is that soothing retreat known as the Lost Library located along the 26 miles of community trails.
