Country retreat with glass enclosed pool/spa and sports court

Situated on a slightly elevated site in Tewksbury Township, the stone and cedar home takes in serene views of rolling landscapes bordered by treelines.

Tailor-made for those who enjoy an active lifestyle, this impressive contemporary in Tewksbury Township presents a unique opportunity. Elegant, well-groomed landscapes and hardscapes surround the home and pool while a tennis court is tucked off to one side within the mainly open six-acre setting.

Situated on a slightly elevated site, the stone and cedar home takes in serene views of rolling landscapes bordered by treelines. Privacy is ensured along a tranquil, low-traffic cul de sac.

The long entrance drive is flanked by old stone pillars, while hardscapes include a graceful Idaho quartz stone walkway to the covered front porch. Specimen plantings, shrubs and borders are focal points that provide a sequence of bloom throughout the seasons. Stone walls add to the charm of the setting.

A stunning glass enclosed heated pool and spa is topped by a massive timbered ceiling.

Hallmarks of this 7,400 square foot home are lustrous hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings, handsome solid wood doors and trim and wide doorways. Clerestory windows in select rooms fill the interior with natural light.

Drama unfolds in the handsome foyer opening into a great room defined by a soaring floor-to-ceiling Georgia stone wood-burning fireplace.

The large clerestory windows frame an indoor heated pool and spa for year-round swimming and entertaining. Adjoining are multiple lighted Trex decks, perfect for outdoor relaxation.

The expansive floor plan has a good flow amid a transitional design aesthetic. Principal gathering spaces are comprised of the great room, dining room, kitchen, library and family room.

The family room and two-story library share a Georgia marble wood-burning fireplace. Stairs in the library access an upper loft and second floor. The generously-sized kitchen has a granite-topped center island, a Sub-Zero side by side refrigerator, a down draft Jenn Air gas cooktop and a spacious window walled dining area overlooking the sport court and manicured grounds.

A first floor master bedroom with Brazilian cherry flooring and two walk-in closets is tucked away in its own part of the home.

A recently updated spa-like master bath has a stunning oversized stall shower, richly hued wood vanity with undermounted white sinks and freestanding jetted slipper tub.

Glass doors open to the Trex deck adjoining the pool. At the far end of the main level is a full bath, maid’s room and laundry room.

An open second floor hallway overlooks the great room below.

This level contains three additional bedrooms; two connected by a full bath and a third featuring a private en suite bath. Closet space is abundant on both levels.

A full unfinished basement and attached three-car garage offer numerous storage options.

Mechanicals include four units of natural gas heating, four units of central air conditioning and a Kohler 48 kw generator for uninterrupted power.

Additional outbuildings are a separate one-bay garage building for garden and lawn equipment and a building for sports equipment near the sports court.
