Whispering Pines. It evokes images of sunlight filtering through a canopy of green, a gentle breeze stirring the pine needles and rustling leaves on the forest floor. Among the tall pines and glorious maples, with Blue Mountain's abundant wildlife and gently flowing streams as its backdrop, is nestled a contemporary home built to coexist with nature. The owners of 29 years, who lovingly created this peaceful estate and christened it Whispering Pines, have decided it is time for a new family to make memories here as they embark on their next adventures. This flowing, modern home was designed for entertaining with spaces that are open and welcoming, and effortlessly seem to unite indoors with outdoors. The main kitchen is a cook's dream with commercial quality Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances including multiple ovens, dual dishwashers and six burner range, and stainless prep area with prep sink. Enjoy meals in the sunny breakfast room or more formal dining room, both surrounded with windows, created to feel as if you are dining alfresco. Soaring windows two stories high bring a lofty, airy feel to the formal living room, while the family room, just off the main kitchen, exudes warmth and relaxed comfort with its wet bar, wine fridge and ice maker. Of course, both living spaces boast fireplaces - one gas, one wood burning - to take the chill off while watching the leaves turn or the snow fall from your front row seat. A locally-crafted Hydroworx indoor pool with underwater treadmill ensures that regardless of the weather, you can still enjoy plenty of exercise. And a second kitchen with indoor grill and attached sunroom allows you to grill to your heart's content any time of year. Upstairs, an artfully-designed master suite awaits, with not one but two en suite bathrooms and walk-in closets including a full dressing room complete with custom Carrara marble-topped built-ins! All second level rooms, the master suite plus two additional bedrooms and an office, open onto sunny balconies where you can enjoy your morning coffee as the deer and wild turkeys wander by. The finished lower level is a great place to shoot a game of pool, or polish up your golfing skills on the indoor putting green. The 12 acre property includes wooded trails as well as an open, sunny pasture, perfect for a friendly game of football or a lazy picnic on the grass. The barn has additional storage space and a stall ready for a horse to join the family! Whispering Pines is gently calling to you; come see where your new memories will be made.
