This is an absolutely stunning contemporary home in Annapolis that you won't want to miss! With six bedrooms and 4.5 baths (four full, one half) & 5,088 finished sq. ft., there is so much to fall in love with here. The house is designed by Deck House and sited on a hilltop location of 2.3 acres. The hilltop serves as a stage for nature to unfold & exhibit a lush forest backdrop. This former Deck House model home was featured in the Washington Post in 1999 flaunting the home's "wow factor." The Deck House is a stunning historic style of architecture. Its signature wood ceiling and exposed post & beam construction allows for high walls of glass that welcomes in nature's splendor. Wired for sound, you can sit back and listen to Bach or the Rolling Stones while watching birds flock to your backyard feeder. Or, you can go outside & simply observe nature from the 7-person Hot Tub during the summer months or snow-filled winter's day. The main level features an incredible, glassed-in cathedral space for the living and dining areas; large, floor-to-ceiling windows follow the vaulted space up and look out into the wooded area, creating a pleasant & calming wooded backdrop to the entire space. Much of the home offers beautiful, Brazilian cherry wood floors, with mahogany wood trim doors and windows throughout. The color of these materials provide a sense of harmony with the outdoors. The lofted area above the kitchen and dining room areas adds additional coziness and provides a private space for listening to music, reading a book, or just looking out into the woods. The kitchen, for its part, is exceedingly spacious, with plenty of open countertop space for preparing food & serving guests while entertaining. Surrounded by complementary cabinetry & stainless steel appliances, the kitchen area is both inviting & practical. A bonus walk-in butler's pantry & wine room immediately off the kitchen includes an ice machine, tap sink & plenty of storage for bar accessories, wine bottles, and party supplies. But wait, there's more: The Family Room adjacent to the kitchen is a good place to just plain relax after a tiring day or Holiday meal. Then there is the spacious laundry area & mudroom conveniently accessible both from the 3 car garage & kitchen. There, you will find a side-by-side washer and dryer, built-in cabinets, and a sink. Another feature of measurable importance is the Master bedroom, conveniently located on the main level. Similar in design to the rest of the home, the Master bedroom showcases a high cathedral ceiling as well as floor-to-ceiling windows looking out into private woods offering calm and solitude. Further, the owner's suite has a semi-separated sitting room, large walk-in closet, and ensuite bath with jetted tub and large stall shower. Moving upstairs, the lofted space above the kitchen provides a lovely alternate sitting room, and there are also three substantial bedrooms that can accommodate guests or members of the household. Each bedroom has wood beam exposed cathedral ceilings, closet space, and generous windows that provide great views of the woods and plenty of natural light. The finished basement of this home adds 1,532 finished sq. ft to the above-ground total, and offers a substantial recreation room, with more great windows to the outside and recessed lighting. Additionally, the fifth bedroom in the basement has a close-by third full bath, making it an ideal guest suite. Another additional room in this downstairs area is perfect for office space, storage, or a cedar closet. Another large area easily allows for multiple exercise equipment such as weight machines and treadmill. Not short on space, this home offers a large storage area adjacent to the downstairs recreation area. Further, the three-car garage provides a useful amenity for both owners & guests. Within easy reach of downtown Annapolis and DC, you can be certain there is nothing else quite like this jewel of a home.
