Modern, handsomely rigid mix of black steel beams, metal siding, warm cedar, and abundant glass, this three-tiered home holds a commanding view of mountains and sky. A custom glass and wood staircase ushers you to the main level, where tall windows and soaring ceilings capture daylight from dawn to dusk. In this setting is a great room with modern fireplace and views of the northern skyline and, to the west, the Sierra Crest. It’s the same view you’ll find on the expansive deck that’s accessed by the great room, dining room and the kitchen with large counter space, pantry and wine cooler.
The Emory Ash deck features a firepit and planter that runs the length of its north side, framing views of the mountains. Down the hall is a secluded, covered garden patio with built-in barbeque, fireplace and hot tub. Two bedroom suites are found on this floor. One is the master with a private deck and fireplace — and another bedroom suite with direct access to the hot tub and views of the forest behind. The entire third floor of this home is a private master suite featuring an office, a wall of drawers for extra storage, a large walk-in closet, and a bedroom featuring a fireplace and spectacular views. At ground level is the bunk room with a media room that features its own terrace, wet bar, wine cellar, microwave, refrigerator and sink. A lovely second bedroom suite is on this floor as well.
All windows in this 5-bed, 5.5-bath home are wired for shades and the lighting control system is Lutron throughout. Floors are oak, baseboards alder, and cabinets are custom built from walnut. The entry is enhanced by the smooth glide of a large, pivot door made from clear cedar. Appliances include quality names like Wolf, Sub-Zero and Bosch. Centerpiece of the media room is a 75” Samsung tv and a surround system with in-wall woofer and custom Triad speakers.
