Suburban architecture infused with contemporary sentiments defines this alluring residence in Timberline Acres. With a vibrancy of its own, the project - from the early sketches to the final modern masterpiece - was a collaborative effort between Mike Schaap Builders, Inc and Benchmark Design Studio and illustrates how gracious living comes wrapped into every carefully planned detail.
Drawing a subtle resemblance to the classic prairie architecture epitomized by Frank Loyd Wright, the streamlined exterior keeps a keen eye on proportion and scale, while the inside shows off grand symmetry and a dramatic open-air design that maximizes every square inch of space.
Large sweeping windows and generous outdoor living spaces play a vital role in connecting the house with its lush woodland site and bathe the interior with sunshine and breathtaking treetop views.
A main-floor master suite with a private screened-in patio, opulent master bath featuring an alluring twist on the classic soaking tub and a clever walk-through closet with laundry access, signifies this well-designed home’s many conveniences and amenities.
Dramatic details, such as high-sheen surfaces, mirrored fixtures and a sleek black cabinetry, exemplify the glamorous undertone of the home, while a soft palette on the walls and floor offer a perfect interplay between overstated and understated design.
Rich textures and sumptuous upholstery, including a beautiful mix of wood, steel, velvet, leather and fur accent pieces, complement many of the owner’s existing furnishings and present a cohesive design that is durable enough to accommodate busy youngsters.
Just as bold and beautiful as it is fun and functional, the upper level’s special playroom and separate sleeping quarters illustrate why you’re never too young for a little glitz and glamour.
• Designed for a crowd, the lower level’s generous lounge areas and savvy refreshment bar promote entertaining, while extra sleeping quarters and a fitness room offer up some bonus privacy.
