Sited back from the road in highly coveted Five Fields, and abutting over five acres of private neighborhood conservation land with a community swimming pool, this spectacular six-plus bedroom modern home was built in 1988 and expanded and upgraded significantly in 2006 with designs by Kennedy Violich architects. The cheerful home is filled with natural light and features floor-to-ceiling windows, soaring ceilings with skylights, and a flexible open floor plan, with radiant-heated dyed-concrete floors, centered around a gourmet kitchen. There are multiple living areas, including the front-facing living room, a separate dining room that can comfortably accommodate dozens of people, and a step-down family room with a stone fireplace and sliders out to the level backyard. A mudroom with clever storage runs along one side of the house, connecting from the family room to the front entry foyer, the oversized two-car garage, and a side door to the driveway. The laundry room is also off of this space.
Upstairs are two primary suites, one from 1985 and the other from 2006. The 1985 wing is centered around a library and a studio, with the previous primary suite, with a walk-in closet, full bath, and a fireplace. This section has another hallway with three additional bedrooms and a full bath. A bridge overlooks the living area below and connects the 1985 section of the house to the newer primary suite. The 2006 suite has an expansive bath with a shower, a jetted overflow spa, and a long double vanity. There is also a spacious walk-in closet, and the bedroom opens to a private balcony overlooking the backyard. A lower level has an au pair suite and two rec rooms, one used as a home gym.
The property is supplied by an impressive array of 2006 systems, HVAC, a newer propane-fueled backup generator, 2006 roofs, and a 2022 driveway and drainage.
Thoughtfully designed and lovingly maintained, this is a rare offering in the pioneering midcentury-modern Five Fields, a community designed and developed by The Architects Collaborative (TAC), where a singular tradition of community has been preserved since the 1950s.
