Designed to blend seamlessly into its tranquil lakeside environment this modern home glows in the dappled sunlight and secluded peace of one of Pound Ridge's most beautiful areas. Set just one hour from Manhattan, down a private drive on Blue Heron Lake, this mahogany, stone and glass structure is open and bright allowing ease of movement between inside and out through several balconies, terraces and screened-in porches. On the ground floor of this 7,202 square foot house, high ceilings and two full-length corridors connect the formal living room at one end to the open kitchen at the other, allowing for an effortless flow through all the entertaining rooms. Adjacent to the living room is a gracious study with large windows and a leather tile floor. Custom millwork runs throughout the house with different woods and grain patterns used to great effect. The double height great room and dining area features a striking stacked stone fireplace and large picture window looking out over the lake. An informal living room faces the open back yard and nature preserve beyond with doors leading out onto two dining terraces. The chef's kitchen and breakfast room offer plenty of space to prep for large dinners and events with open work surfaces, double sinks, ovens and dishwashers. Two screened-in porches and a guest suite round out this extensive first floor. Upstairs are 4 bedrooms, all with en-suite baths including a spacious master bedroom that opens onto a sleeping porch. The nearly 10 acres of wooded property also includes a dock and boathouse just steps from the front door with access to the 50 acre lake, perfect for swimming, fishing and boating. The house also has a 5-zone HVAC system, water softener, full-length dry basement and workshop. This peaceful oasis works well as a weekend or full-time home.
