Property Description

Tucked into the privacy of Killingworths 60+ acre Land Trust, this GREEN home abuts the only active Cranberry Bog in the state! Combining ‘Healthy Home’ features with high-quality construction & a forward thinking approach, this sustainable design offers understated elegance that flows throughout the main house into the breezeway attached Studio Suite. There’s a plethora of energy efficient advantages from the Daylighting plan to the mechanicals. The elegant finishes of this distinctive home offer a smart yet stylish environment.

A great room floor plan is ideal for family living. You will find Maple cabinetry, African mahogany, Cherry hardwood, Koa, marble, granite, onyx and slate throughout this well designed and spacious home! In addition, the Sun Room’s floor to ceiling windows and the Screened-in Porch offer year round outdoor entertaining & enjoyment.

Perhaps the most awe-worthy area of the home lies out of sight. A 4-Zone Geothermal Heating and Cooling System, Noritz Tankless Water Heater, a wireless monitored Underground Propane Tank, Carbon Backwash Filter and an Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) system combined with Spray Foam Insulation and over 50 energy efficient windows are the pride of this energy saving abode.

Equally amazing with similar features, the 1,100 square foot Studio Suite was designed to create a serene environment. Ideal for guests or Au Pair living, this sanctuary includes a full kitchen and bath, with American Clay Walls, Shoji Style Screens and a Meditation Balcony to highlight the space.

Ipe Decking flows from the screened porch into two large platforms surrounded by strategically placed stonework that adds ambiance to the outdoor meditation area and beautifully designed Zen Garden. Attention to detail was paid to all exterior features, including the copper gutters, flashing and trim, 40 year Architectural roof shingles, Custom Mahogany garage doors and Cedar Siding with a Nantucket weave corner system.

This unique property retreat is monitored by a cutting edge closed circuit Security System viewable on any in-home television or via the internet. Douglas fir soffits with recessed lighting surround the perimeter of the entire home with walkway and driveway lamp posts to guide your path. Enjoy a quiet existence with this added appeal and peace of mind.

No detail was left unnoticed and no creativity was spared in the planning and building of energy efficient ‘Healthy Home’.
