Unique in design, unsurpassed in quality of materials, and stunning in interior beauty, this modern (2007) home was custom-built using a large-timber construction according to the half-log system. Materials in this home include stone and hand-hewn logs and spindles. The gorgeous hardwood floors are one-of-a-kind, as they were taken directly from 22 species of trees on the property. The truss system was designed for maximum span without the need of support beams. The wood-burning fireplace features a stone hearth with log mantel. The home is designed for high-efficiency heating and cooling. Behind the wood siding is an extra-heavy R-Factor insulation and 2x6s behind that, and the home is heated by a high-efficiency, multistage heat-pump. The large triangular windows allow in plenty of sunlight, and the houses faces north, which makes it ideal for winter heating from the sun. The basement spans the entire width/length of the home and features an oversized (12') garage door, walkout, 240-volt service for machinery (ideal for a workshop), and special wiring panel for generator operation during power outages. The sprawling back porch and deck above face nearly 1 acre of hardwood forest. Vintage/antique lighting fixtures light the home throughout, some of Art-Deco design. Entertainment centers upstairs and down are powered by behind-the-wall wiring and include TVs and sound systems that remain with the property! Home sits on a cul-de-sac in a good, quiet neighborhood.
