This award-winning plan, with painted
exterior masonry has a master bedroom
on the first floor with three bedrooms and
a vaulted ceiling loft on the second floor.
The five-inch hand scraped flooring
compliments the millwork of seven-inch
baseboards, seven-inch crown, coffered ceilings, maple staircase with wrought iron
balusters, bead board and board-and-batten trim, the stained box beams, bookshelves
and stone fireplace add charm to the great
room. The hearth room stone fireplace
extends to the peak of the vaulted ceiling.
The kitchen features custom glazed
cabinetry, granite countertops, and Wolf
appliances with a microwave drawer.
This is truly exquisite design. The
designers did a wonderful job making
the space functional despite its large
size, and the overall effect is striking yet
soft at the same time. Unique materials
are used throughout, and the hood is a
work of art itself. All of the color
combinations are impressive – the bold
blues pop alongside the kitchens soft
colored floors in an interesting way.

Contemporary chic design and unique details
define this extraordinary custom home. An award
winning kitchen – complete with quarter-sawn
white oak Crystal Cabinetry, one-of-a-kind granite
countertops and Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances –

soffits, creating a dramatic design element in the
space. A glass tile wrapped column highlights the
home’s spa-like master bath, and gorgeous glass
tile also adorns the backsplash and accent pieces
that surround the curved dual-head shower walls.
Stainless steel balusters enhance the natural-
stained white oak staircase, which leads to
luxurious natural limestone heated floors that
cover the entire main level.

Dreaming of a warm, contemporary space with
clean spare line, the homeowners called on The
Design Source, LTD. to enhance their newly built
kitchen into an artistic exhibit of dynamic design.
Their wishes included a spacious area with plenty
of seating that could accommodate large groups
of people for entertaining while also serving as a
more intimate setting for smaller family gatherings.
An outstanding range hood covered in lustrous
glass tile, repeated in a unifying backsplash
around the kitchen’s perimeter, serves as a focal
point in the room. The ceiling architecture and
quarter-sawn oak cabinets on dual islands feature
a custom navy blue stain. Stainless steel legs
(on one island); lend a contemporary, furniture-like
feel to the space, and cantilevered, curved soffits
