Southwick a study in harmony and style
The Southwick's European exterior can be likened to a musical composition. The rough, earthy texture of stone veneer here runs a complementary counterpoint to the smooth classical columns, graceful arches and ethereal neo-Gothic windows. These elements, along with the wrought iron balcony railing, combine to give this estate-size home a delightfully French flavor.
Passing through the vaulted porch, you enter a naturally bright foyer. Windows surround the door on the sides and top. Double doors on the left open into a vaulted den that could be a library, study, or home office.
Directly ahead, ornamental columns flank a wide, arched opening that leads into the living room. A gas fireplace is centered along the left wall, and custom cabinets fill that wall on both sides. Wide windows span most of the rear, offering a great view while admitting a generous wash of natural light.
Another column-rimmed, arched opening is across the room from the fireplace. This one links the living room to the dining area and kitchen.
French doors are centered in the half-octagonal window bay that expands the dining area, offering easy access to a large, partially covered patio. This entire space is totally open to the large kitchen. Noteworthy kitchen features include: a built-in hutch and desk, corner display shelves, a large work island/eating bar, and a sunny space for potted plants in front of the sink.
The Southwick's vaulted master suite boasts a luxurious bathroom, huge walk-in closet, and direct access to a vaulted, covered patio ideal for a hot tub. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, along with a vaulted loft, a two-section bathroom, and a bonus room with a gas fireplace, home entertainment center and balcony.
