City Zen: “Build me somewhere I never want to leave”….. That was our instruction. This spa like bohemian retreat was built with everything in mind; three fireplaces, incredible open plan, custom soaking tub and computerized music, lighting and shower system with a glass steam sauna plus the 8 man backyard Jacuzzi fitted the bill!
All this beauty and tranquility belie the fact that the property started out as a dreary one bedroom with a 6’ high basement no natural light and limited garden access.
Excavating the basement, adding a large addition and underpinning the building, the footprint of the space was enlarged creating an stunning space full of natural light.
Wall to wall glass doors lead to an ornate Japanese inspired garden that has energy efficient radiant heat to deal with snow melt and a beautiful year round outdoor fireplace.
Radiant floors, computer controlled humidity and HVAC and studio quality sound proofing really make this the perfectly silent city oasis.
