Soho chic on 5 secluded acres minutes from the heart of Windham!
This stunning home was completely remodeled and renovated in 2018, offering over 3,000 sf of living space. As you enter through the large foyer, you are greeted by the light-filled open plan first floor extending through to the partially sunken lounge with its oversized stone fireplace and the generous deck beyond.
Details include a truly special custom kitchen, with Miele and Sub-Zero / Asko appliances, silestone quartz countertops, and spacious storage built into hand-wire brushed cerused white European oak cabinetry. The adjacent dining area and its bespoke hand-built table are framed by curved windows, with imported ancient oak floors running throughout the house. This main floor is completed by a large guest bedroom and luxurious bathroom with matching white oak vanity and dimpled black marble counter. Up the custom steel railed stairs, one reaches a sun-drenched landing gallery overlooking the living room and fireplace below. The primary bedroom with its own balcony and custom crafted grand bathroom suite are here, along with another spacious bedroom with its own mezzanine, that could equally well serve as a relaxation room, library, or office.
The lower floor contains a second large living space, perfect as a media or game room, or as a private lounge for guests staying in the generously sized adjacent bedroom with its own en-suite bathroom and ample storage.Leading to the garage, a second substantial mud room offers flexibility with comfortable seating and its own bathroom. A utility cupboard houses the state-of-the-art mechanicals including a high efficiency Navien water system. This runs the radiant underfloor heating throughout the entire lower and first floors, and the supplemental hot water baseboard radiators elsewhere. For further comfort, all bathrooms enjoy electric underfloor heating. Moreover, the house has been fully re-insulated to create a perfect year-round residence – whether indoors or enjoying the outdoor hot tub and fire pit in the garden.
Home to the founding couple of one of the most prominent independent, minority and women-owned interior design firms in NYC, this house oozes comfort and style. Situated on a cul-de-sac at the end of a 0.7-mile-long lane, 5 Jacob Strasse Rd offers supreme privacy and yet is only a 5-minute drive to the restaurants of Windham and the ski slopes beyond, and 2.5 hour drive to NYC
