Few homes make as good an impression when you first walk into them as this one. A few steps past the front door brings you into the living room with the two story vaulted ceiling. Straight ahead is a two story wall of windows. Even on this gray drab day, the sight is impressive. The view from the windows takes in the hillside across the way, but then the view makes a panoramic sweep to the left and goes down the valley, and over to more distant mountains. It gives the view a sense of scale and drama that is even better from the deck.
But enough about the view; the house is also impressive with its casual contemporary grandeur. Its bright, clean, airy charm is very seductive. Natural light fills the spaces from the kitchen through the upstairs’ bedrooms. This affect is aided by the blond flooring throughout the ground floor, and the white trim around the doors and windows. Upstairs the master bedroom benefits from light carpeting, light green walls, and its two alcoves create a sophisticated interior space. The master bath and two other bedrooms are also painted in light hues, keeping with the airy feeling.
The kitchen is worth special consideration, stainless appliances serve as a counterpoint to the natural colored floor. The counter tops are varicolored stone with gray grout. The black cabinets set off the stone tile back splash, and give the kitchen a modern urban look without being cold. Downstairs is a large family room with a fireplace and a place for a big screen TV. Outside on the ground level deck is a hot tub. There are three more bedrooms and a full bath here as well. Located just outside of Ellicottville it is a world apart from the typical Ellicottville fare, and yet it is still close to skiing, golf, and downtown.
