The majestic âHennesseyâ log mansion, as featured in Countryâs Best Log Homesâ article, appropriately entitled âDream Fulfillmentâ, incorporates the best design elements from the most ambitious resort style homes.This stunning estate is harmoniously situated within a 5 acre bucolic setting among unique and mature specimen trees,landscaping, and gardens.Enter your grand home through the giant arched wood doors with wrought iron hinges and speakeasy window.The front doors, chimney, foundation, and other areas are accented by real stone,adding a certain rustic gravitas to the home.This stonework is mixed throughout the interior and exterior,a pleasant complement to the Northern White Cedar, and in perfect balance with the solid walnut doors and carved wood mantels. You will be awe-struck as you stroll down the foyer and pass under the custom truss and beamed ceiling over the great room. The great room is flooded with natural light flowing through the fan window at the peak of the 24-foot cathedral ceiling. The great roomâs bump-out is the perfect space for a cozy afternoon nap near the oversized fireplace. This alcove overlooks the vast backyard gardens, heated saltwater pool and waterfall,and an expansive patio. Flanking the great room are the kitchen and dining rooms and the primary suite. The desirable first floor bedroom provides access to a walk out deck, gazebo and a hot tub to enjoy evening sunsets. This suite has a natural beamed ceiling and a noteworthy bathroom boasting a steam shower and a custom designed stonework tub surround. The first floor kitchen is easily accessed from the 3 car garage. The open kitchen has a large center island with a cooktop and plenty of counter space for socializing. The dining room features a stone fireplace and has French doors leading to a large deck and gazebo for outdoor entertaining with a view, or for a quiet evening around the firepit. Two bedrooms on the upper floor rival the size of the primary suite and include walkout balconies, giant arched windows, bathrooms and ample closet space. Each has intriguing ceiling designs and patterns in wood. Between the two bedrooms is a balcony sitting area overlooking the great room and a large open area leading to the private library, an indescribable architectural masterpiece with a cozy fireplace, balcony, and ample windows. The lower level is an entertainerâs paradise, including: a large main social and dance area with built-in bar and âcantina-styleâ seating, a temperature controlled 2000 bottle wine cellar, an extra large stone fireplace, and a theater area and billiard room with a beautiful stone alcove. Another comfortable bedroom and a similarly sized resting room and office adjoin the main room and bathroom. The lower level ties into an oversized fenced patio area and an outdoor kitchen and bar with underdeck drip proof seating areas. Stroll through the thoughtfully designed landscape to your koi pond, salt water pool, stone waterfall with hot tub. The layout is ideal for a large gathering or a secluded day under the shady wisteria-laced pergola. The yard area boasts 2 barns, greenhouse, fenced vegetable garden, and untypical trees in quality and quantity. Rare and stunning trees adjoin the neighboring forest reserve area providing additional privacy. The main barn has HVAC, water, electric, natural gas, and a full bathroom next to the gym area. The second floor lofts are bridged by an overlook with 1-ton hoist to the lower level. Four large 9ft tall drive-in doors allow for plentiful uses for contractors, auto buffs, woodworkers, landscapers, boaters, artists, and other craftsmen and hobbyists. You will be amazed by the charm and functionality of this building. The second log sided barn is two stories with electric, and water outside. Great for your tractors, animals or storage and nearby the newer greenhouse with power, electric and water. Feel like you're on a mountain vacation every time you step into your home!
