A one-of-a-kind Big Island Pond waterfront masterpiece


To the right of the foyer is a sunny dining room that is wide open to a fireplaced living room and the enormous state-of-the art kitchen. This combination is perfect for year-round entertaining.

All the rooms offer gleaming hardwood floors, custom moldings and fabulous details. The fireplace is framed by two arched windows, with small stained glass details, that add just the right amount of light and style to the open space.

The eat-in kitchen is impressive with a large island that seats five comfortably and beautiful seating area in front of a bay window overlooking the waterfront. There is extensive workspace, plenty of storage in the handsome hardwood cabinets, a built-in wine rack, stainless steel appliances and gorgeous granite counters that tie all the elements together and echo the beauty of the natural surroundings.

Completing the first level is an attractive powder room and the large waterfront three-seasons room.

Up the extra-wide staircase is the extraordinary bedroom level with an extra room for a spacious home office or library.

The master-bedroom suite is dreamy. Located in its own wing, it features soaring vaulted ceilings, panoramic water vistas, a sitting room, a walk-in closet, an additional double closet and an appealing tiled en-suite bath with two built-in vanities and sinks. It feels as if the soaring space hovers over the waterfront and it would be incredible to watch a golden sunrise over the water from this astonishing suite.

There are two additional good-sized bedrooms, one overlooking Big Island Pond. Each has hand-scrapped hardwood floors and large closets. A spacious full bath is conveniently located next to these bedrooms.

A true bonus is the third floor loft. This is yet another soaring space with great views of the water. It could easily be used as guest space or perhaps a bedroom for a college-age student.
