This unique property is designed to show how a smaller home can live big in an urban neighborhood. The builder chose a classic carriage house exterior style with an indoor twist: a contemporary “euro fresh” interior.

The first floor flows with an open-style kitchen-dining room-family room setup. The dining room opens to a large screened-in porch and back patio. The screened porch features infrared heaters and ceiling fans.

The second floor features two bedroom suites and a convenient laundry room. The lower level comprises a guest suite, yoga, cycling and golf simulator room, as well as a family room with walk in wine room.

The home is also the first Net Zero home in the city, featuring a 13-kilowatt solar system to power the house, cars and lawn equipment and green HVAC system with air-to-air heat exchange and electric heat pump fueled by solar.

Additional features of note include:

  • Smart home automation
  • Gourmet kitchen with custom window seat
  • Primary bath with a view, steam shower, soaking tub and radiant heated floors
  • Ample closets throughout
  • Super entertainment area in the lower level with wine room, family room and golf simulator
  • Detached garage with potential to finish in-law suite or home office
From the Judges
This refreshingly not modern home incorporates nice detailing throughout, including an arched ceiling in the powder room, reading nook in window and large wine cellar. The exterior envelops a sweet courtyard for outdoor living.
