Few people in life are presented with the opportunity to design the home of their dreams. Renowned architect Leo D’Aleo of D’Aleo & Associates was one such fortunate person, conceiving the bright and airy contemporary luxury home at 3304 Hess Road in Monkton. With attention to precision and function throughout, this modern home utilizes space, light and crisp lines to create an open, free flowing yet warm setting.
An entry door with side lights opens into the vaulted Foyer with Birch hardwood flooring. Sliding doors reveal the lush atrium courtyard that runs along the center of the home. A passage opens into the expansive Living Room with a vaulted ceiling, accented by a full-height central chimney wall with a pass-through fireplace. Walls of windows on both sides of the room look out into the Atrium gardens and pond to one side and to the large Patio and pool enclosure to the other. Opposing the Living Room just beyond the chimney wall, the Dining Room also enjoys a vaulted ceiling, walls of windows and open flow to the adjacent Kitchen. Custom solid maple cabinetry lines the walls and island in this lovely space, featuring granite counters, professional stainless appliances and a Breakfast area looking out at the pool beyond.
Access from the Foyer leads to the Game Room, offering recreational space and leads into an Office with a built-in Desk and bookcases. An adjoining Studio, set up perfectly for projects at home with cabinetry, sink, and shelving enjoys serene views of the Atrium. The nearby Laundry Room provides access to the breezeway at the 4-car Garage.
The tranquil Master Bedroom Suite features vaulted ceilings, abundant windows, a large Dressing Room with three walls of custom fitted cabinetry and a dreamy Master Bath with beautiful cabinets and a glass enclosed shower stall. Four additional Bedrooms each enjoy vaulted ceilings and a Bath which is shared between each pair of rooms.
The extraordinary enclosed pool area boasts a wide brick patio leading down to the heated salt water pool with an adjoining spa and backing to a full width wall with three lion head fountains decoratively filling the water below. Beautiful lawns surround the home, bordered by wooded groves and an open meadow; a total of 25.61 acres.
Thoughtfully conceived to provide light, open spaces while retaining views to the surrounding natural beauty, 3304 Hess Road is an architectural treat!
