1755 Brantfeather Grv.
Nestled on a treed 1.27-acre lot in prestigious Stratton Preserve, this custom home was designed and built to replicate the plantation house in the movie “Out of Africa.” Offering incredible attention to detail, the home has unique features such as masonry “curvy brick” exterior, hand-made iron lanterns with real gas torches and numerous reclaimed building materials. Not only is the home exquisite, but the home with its elevator, main level master suite, main level guest suite & guest house make it ideal for a multi-generational family.
As you approach the home, you are greeted with an expansive covered front porch, which boasts 1478 square feet of brick flooring and cedar ceiling. Multiple hand-carved beams from reclaimed oak and gas hand-wrought iron lanterns add the perfect finishing touches to this outdoor living space.
As you enter the home, a brick entry hall opens to the living room, which is designated by eight hand-hewn pine columns. The living room offers reclaimed heart pine floors, a tiled fireplace with gas logs, a wall of built-in bookcases, floor to ceiling paned windows, and 12-foot ceilings. A spacious formal dining room with faux tin ceiling, bay window, and reclaimed heart pine floors is to the left of the entry. At the end of the brick entry hall, there is a wall of floor to ceiling windows and a brick arch that leads to the gourmet kitchen. As you enter the kitchen, there is a powder room located to the left.
The gourmet kitchen is a beautiful and creative spot to cook. Rich red cabinetry accented by a built-in black buffet and a tall cupboard of alder wood provides abundant storage and delight to the eye. A reclaimed pined ceiling and reclaimed oak floors along with two copper sinks and copper hardware add an aura of old world authenticity to the kitchen. Modern conveniences include slab granite counters, a commercial grade Viking gas stove with 6 burners and skillet, double ovens, two dishwashers, refrigerator plus a refrigerator drawer. There is even pot filler over the stove, which is embedded in copper along with antique Italian tiles, which form a scene of the town square in Mali, Sicily. A butler’s pantry, located between the kitchen and the dining room, offers a wine cooler, an icemaker and a large walk-in pantry.
Adjoining the kitchen, there is a large family room with ample room for sitting and casual dining. The family room, which also has a pine ceiling with hand hewn pine beams and oak floors, offers a door to the front porch, a gas fireplace, two ceiling fans and French doors to covered back porch. The back porch, which also has a brick floor and a cedar ceiling, has 548 square feet and boasts a built-in stainless steel Viking gas grill. The covered back porch adjoins a large flagstone patio, which overlooks a waterfall that spills into a pond below.
The main level master bedroom, which also opens to the back porch, features beautiful bay window, oak floors, ceiling fan, fireplace, and a large walk-in closet with a convenient stackable washer and dryer. The master bath has heated floors, a claw foot-soaking tub; two copper sinks in complimentary antique sideboards, bead board wainscoting and a spacious shower complete with two showerheads and bench.
Also on this level, there is a guest suite with a walk-in closet and a black and white bath that is handicapped accessible. Completing the main level, the laundry room has brick floors, another walk-in pantry and loads of cabinets.
Note: There is elevator access from the main level to the lower level.
Up a short flight of stairs, there is a bedroom suite and a loft that provides an ideal workspace. The bedroom has a peaked beadboard ceiling, walk-in closet and a ceiling fan. The adjoining bath has two sinks and is finished in colorful tiles. The hand-painted striped sink is enclosed in an antique cupboard.
The lower level is a walkout and features acid stained floors and a huge rec room with wet bar. The wet bar comes complete with a dishwasher and a refrigerator with icemaker. The rec room has two areas. One area has a fireplace and is ideal for a game table or a pool table. The other area has a wall of built-ins with a wide screen T.V. and audio equipment. (TV and audio equipment convey.) Also on this level, there are two more large bedrooms each with their own bath. The sinks in both baths have antique “furniture” vanities for added interest. A cedar lined closet and a large utility/ storage area complete the lower level.
