Double Team

In chilly winter months, this home’s gourmet convection ovens, gas cooktop, gleaming granite countertops, rich wooden cabinets, and large Sub-Zero refrigerator will help you wait out the cold. But when the snow starts to melt, you may want to move to the outdoor kitchen, nearly as extensive as the first, to cook next to the pool. With two incredible options, this home moves seamlessly between indoor and outdoor space, making cooking and entertaining a piece of cake. Note the three bedrooms and three and one half baths in the home, then head upstairs, which features a spa-like master bath and walk-in closet. Stunning landscaping completes this home’s dedication to luxe living.

Winter White

A gleaming white backsplash offsets this lustrous kitchen, a culinary connoisseur’s dream. The dark butcher block slab that divides the marble island is ready for all of your chopping, kneading, rolling, and cookie-cutting requirements, while providing plenty of space for entertaining. No need to stress about the cleanup, as two dishwashers work double duty to finish it swiftly! Lit glass display cabinets flank a state-of-the-art Wolf range that can fill your home with the scent of your holiday traditions. Stay warm in these winter months next to one of three fireplaces, illuminated by the ample natural light that shines through the entire house. Six bedrooms plus four full and two half baths make this a perfect hosting home for a big family and out-of-town guests. The lower level kitchen, home theater, and fitness studio only add to the accommodating feeling that this stunning home provokes.

Luxurious Lodging

Hardly rustic, this grand, lodge-style home sits on 35 acres of beautiful land. Gaze at the sprawling grounds from the kitchen’s rear wall, filled from floor to vaulted ceiling with large, paneled windows. With two sinks, stacked convection ovens, and a tiered island, you’ll hardly want to leave the kitchen, soaking up the heat from the prodigious stone fireplace. Honey-colored oak floors warm the entire home, from the great room to the three bedrooms. View it all from above in the sizable loft area, serving as a hideaway second family room that will catch the aroma of delicious treats waiting downstairs.
