A villa in the woods describes this home. Entry to the home requires a transition through the “tunnel” into a motor court. Approaching the front door, an entry gallery provides another transition to the courtyard beyond which is surrounded by the kitchen, dining and master bedroom. Imported stone floors, high ceilings, and custom wood trim recall a European style while a large modern kitchen/dining area with a “see-through” fireplace to the living room bring a more modern floor plan into the equation. A highly efficient geothermal HVAC system completes the package.
