Property Description

A home of singular distinction in the historic heart of Gwynedd Valley created in 2009, privately sited along the banks of the Trewellyn Creek. A European influenced design by renowned architect Rene Hoffman featuring fieldstone and contemporary standards of large windows, open floor plan and character design details. The interior millwork designed and built by Jonathan Trueblood represents the absolute pinnacle in artisanal architectural finishes. The creek and wooded views afford privacy unequalled in the immediate area. The property consists of a discreet 5.77 acre site accessed down a long driveway and over a wooden bridge. The house of 12,278 + square feet includes 6 bedrooms, 7/1 bathrooms, a dynamic master suite with his and her dressing rooms and private bathrooms. Generous in layout, the interior spaces are intimate. While traditional in style with contemporary touches, the overall house conveys casual elegance. The central family great room invites all to congregate in stone-walled and hand-hewn beamed warmth. Personal retreats and common areas offer the peace and the comfort of a well-loved home. A magnificent mahogany library provides a commanding view of the Trewellyn Creek valley. A personal, home theater follows the reclaimed grist mill-themed architecture, provides an intimate screening experience with a sophisticated lighting program to enjoy your favorite shows on top technical equipment. The Creek Room features a bespoke fireplace with a free-edge surround of oak flitches 30" wide balancing a radius of bay windows right above the creek's edge. A complete gym and related sauna make for a well-appointed lower level. Outbuildings include a garage with oversized parking for three automobiles, workspace and an independent apartment above. A garden house with more vehicle spaces and storage complete a welcoming entrance courtyard. Specifications and complete details are available upon request. We welcome you to plan a visit to tour the property in person.
