This home is an experience, a feeling, a sense of magic and wonder. It starts with a long, meandering paver stone driveway shaded by ancient oak trees. At the end lies a Post and Beam contemporary that is so in harmony with the setting it nearly blends into the landscape. Beautifully finished natural wood frames floor to ceiling windows and artfully placed half walls, built-in book case walls and cabinets create a great room that is at once as spacious and open as it is intimate and serene. There is so much glass it is hard to tell where “indoors” begins, and a mature tree canopy ensures the perfect temperature. Three bedrooms include a stunning master suite, and a private den that could easily suit as a fourth bedroom. Almost completely rebuilt in (2004) by noted local architect Gio Aliano, this masterwork will become someone’s forever home. Perhaps it should be yours.

Everyone knows this house. That it impresses others does not impress you. You are more attuned to the soul of this landmark two story Spanish located in the desirable Rossmoyne.
Stress falls away as soon as you enter the shaded courtyard. The formal entry sets the tone with magnesite staircase and hardwood floors with subtle inlay detail. Intelligent conversation is had in the glorious Living Room with wood beamed ceiling, arched window and double french doors to the courtyard.
But the crowd always gathers in the nearly-new-but-looks-vintage cook’s kitchen with center island. Perhaps the door leading to the perfectly designed backyard is the reason. The kids are frolicking in the sparkling pool and a little one scurries to the remodeled bath and dressing room located just off the pool and adjacent to the downstairs bedroom/den.
Upstairs there are three more bedrooms, including two preserved vintage baths featuring Washington cast iron tubs and rare waterlily tile liners. Modern features include dual zone heat and air, copper pipe, foundation bolt and sheer wall bracing. Electric wires, main roof, main sewer line, pool pump, gutters, and chimney are all recently replaced.

You love your master bedroom with ensuite bath and it’s nice to know there is a second bedroom and bath that is perfect for guests when they drop by.

Large updated townhouse with private 2-car garage. Contact us to request a showing.
You love the sweet and easy lifestyle of townhouse living. At the end of a long day you pull into your spacious private garage and shut the door. Workout clothes get tossed in the wash and the bikes are stored for tomorrow’s ride. The Costco haul goes in the spacious cabinets. You take the perishables to the bright, remodeled kitchen, and let the kids snack at the kitchen table. They would prefer to be on the patio just outside, but it’s too hot. Today the central AC feels heavenly. Your partner is curled up in the step up den, the fireplace is turned on, despite the weather. Later, when your friends are over, you enjoy the wide open Living and Dining Rooms and how the recessed LED lights bounce off the wood floors. You are glad you only had to tidy the 1/2 bath downstairs- the 3 bedrooms and 2 baths are upstairs and private. After everyone leaves it is time to relax in your Master Suite. Clothes go in the walk in closet, your partner is enjoying the master bath and you are relaxing by the fireplace, the second one in the unit. Ah, this is the life.
