This Wilderness Gate 4 bedroom/5 bathroom property was constructed by Wolf Builders with clean, minimalist lines and a Shaker-like attention to functional design. A pitched roof forms high interior wood-planked ceilings accentuating the spaciousness of the central living areas. Handsome brick floors were laid throughout the home and cream-toned walls as well as large windows and multiple skylights infuse each living space with the beneficial effects of natural light. Natural wood trim is used effectively throughout the home for both utility and decoration. Built-in shelves line three walls of the library and solid double doors secure it for quiet and privacy. The kitchen, outfitted with Viking appliances, has a large central island, counter space and sit-down eating area with access to a patio for outdoor entertaining or alfresco dining. The generously proportioned master suite features a kiva fireplace and access to a private portal through French doors. An attached guest residence with a private entrance would easily convert to a studio or office space. Nestled in the foothills on 5 acres bordering the St. John’s arroyo and surrounded by old growth Ponderosa pine, the setting offers extraordinary privacy and proximity to biking and hiking trails and yet is just minutes away from town.
