NORTHBRIDGE – High-end architectural features abound in this custom contemporary that features a light, bright and open floor plan set on more than 19 acres of sweeping vistas.
The 5,916-square-foot home at 1458 Quaker St. is listed with Cheryl Eidinger-Taylor of ERA Key Realty Services for $1.25 million.
Eidinger-Taylor says this four-bed, six-bath home is full of light, and the floor plan offers a lot of flexibility.
Homeowner Karen Steiger agreed that the “light and openness” are among her favorite features as well as the “privacy and serenity” of the property.
“It’s also a great place for entertaining family and friends,” she said. “We love the pool and the open-concept kitchen.”
It begins with a second-floor balcony overlooking a large foyer with rich honey-colored wood floors and striking architectural columns.
To the left, a two-story library of Old World flavor with custom wood paneling, a gas fireplace with marble surround, and bowed glass doors to a patio. A floating circular staircase leads to the upper-level lot and catwalk with its built-in bookshelves, and access to a rooftop widow’s walk. This upper level also has second-floor access.
To the right is an entertainment-sized dining room with fireplace, built-in display closets and a coffered ceiling.
The heart of the home runs along the back of the house. The living room features a floor-to-ceiling rough-cut stone fireplace, a marble-topped wet bar, coffered ceiling and a glass door to the patio.
A columned panel of glass front cabinets separate the living room from the informal dining area of the kitchen. This space holds a wall of glass doors leading the patio and in-ground pool.
The elegant kitchen features a L-shaped center island with breakfast bar and gas range under a copper hood. Stone countertops and cherry cabinets hold stainless steel appliances including a cabinet-encased refrigerator.
A walk-in pantry, mudroom and laundry room complete the first floor.
The grand staircase in the foyer or a back staircase off the kitchen lead to the second floor and master bedroom suite. Here a half-vaulted ceiling over a sitting area offers a wall of windows overlooking the grounds. The spalike master bath holds a claw-foot soaker tub and large stall shower.
Three other bedrooms are on the second floor. One has a half-vaulted ceiling with loft and catwalk, and another holds a full bath.
A bonus room on the third level has glass doors to a rooftop covered porch.
The staycation-style backyard offers a large stamped-concrete patio with lots of entertainment space around an in-ground saltwater pool and outdoor kitchen.
