A beautiful Bluffview home was precisely planned by its designer-owner to reflect the style and feel of a Hamptons estate, and now the serene retreat is seeking a new owner.
It was expanded with intention in 2017 as part of a joint project between the designer-owner and architect Wilson Fuqua. The renovation added a great room featuring a wall of windows looking out at the large lawn and a charming two-story, 1,200-square-foot guest house with one bedroom and two bathrooms.
And while anyone can renovate a home, listing agents Jennifer Shindler and J. L. Forke say the attention to detail in this one is truly second to none.
"Our clients rebuilt this from the ground up, and in doing so, made sure to give nod to the past," says Shindler, of Briggs Freeman Sotheby's International. "Looking out at the expansive backyard and guest home from the living room and kitchen is our favorite part of the property."
Then there's the kitchen, painted in a beautiful blue that blends with a home that otherwise has crisp white walls. It includes amenities home chefs love: Thermador fridge, Wolf gas cooktop, and a coffee bar. The home also has a kid-friendly sunroom and a smart study.
A favorite touch is the pass-through window that connects to a sophisticated side yard showcasing an outdoor living space and a dreamy fireplace. This is queen of all courtyards. So chic.
The home has handsome hardwoods in some places and Ann Sacks tile in others. Modern art is paired with Schumacher textiles. These are just two examples of its unique blend of traditional and daring interior design.
Another reminder that this home has the Hamptons in mind comes in the upstairs master retreat, with its vaulted ceilings. It's accompanied by a light-filled bathroom with soaking tub.
Unfortunately for fans of this home, the designer-owner has stepped away from the spotlight to take time to raise her family. The good thing about that? There will not be another home like it anytime soon.
The property is currently listed at $1.25 million.
