Property Sub TypeDetached
Nestled comfortably between the two historic villages of Birchrunville and the art driven hamlet of Yellow Springs, sits this magnificent John Diament built oasis. Every inch of the property is Bio Sustainable, from the specimen plantings, to water features allowing a balance of environmental well-being on the property. The owners dream was to leave a friendly footprint. The home was designed by Brooke Drinkwater under the detailed scrutiny of the owners. Geothermal heating and air conditioning, along with roof overhangs, Lutron lighting system, whole house generator, 3 floor elevator, are just a few of the lifestyle amenities. The home itself was designed for convenience and performance. The evidence of this is in the extremely low utility costs, electric blinds, too many closets to count all fit out with organization systems and countless other features. A first floor master bedroom equipped with his and hers full baths along with a two story closet gives access to the second floor hall way. Two generous bedrooms and a large multipurpose room complete the second floor. Another wonderful feature of the first floor is the private mahogany office, with adjacent powder room and separate entrance, allowing the owner an opportunity to entertain clients privately. The large fabulous designer kitchen is the heart of this home accompanied by an adjacent sun room, fireside family room, and wonderful screened porch with fireplace. All three of these spaces offer cathedral ceilings. A first floor guest suite complete with tile bath provides privacy and comfort. The lower level is exquisitely finished with a mahogany bar and abundant moldings and allows full access to all the outdoor gardens and entertainment areas. This floor is filled with finished storage opportunities. Entertaining abounds with the fabulous outdoor negative edge pool and raised Jacuzzi with waterfall, multiple patios and terraces along with an outdoor kitchen area. The grounds were an integral part of the building project. Gorgeous well thought out plant species, with optimal grading and drainage, along with a fully lined and well fed pond were built under the guidance of well-known pond guru, John Monro. The property is fenced and equipped with a camera security system, a heated driveway, and an abundance of exterior lighting. The additional structures include an art studio along the pond and a pool house. The property is very private, bordered by open space in the rear and a quick walk to the Natural Lands preserve known as Bryn Coed where several hundred acres of walking trails exist. All this with easy access to all major routes from a true country gem!
