a brandybrook masterpiece

Concealed along a quiet road toward the back of the already secluded Legend at Brandybrook village sits a residence unparalleled. Without question, there are numerous homes in this isolated golf community that are quite special in their own right, but this particular Barenz-built classic stands apart from any of them. There are

b y Ti m o t h y J a y

stand-out features from one end of this nearly 9,000-square-foot masterpiece to the other, with a spectacular view of the par 3, 12th hole at The Legends course not being the least of them. Entering the driveway and past the first level of meticulous landscaping, the drive is carefully proportioned to split a pair of two-car garages in half. The exterior of the home is finished in hard coat stucco, with a lifetime-warrantied Decra metal enamel-coated roof. The two-story entryway with grand staircase sets the tone for a Tuscanythemed open concept design throughout the Home suggested by Flora Cameron of First Weber Group Realtors速 To view more photos of this property visit Portfolio of Fine Homes at

The great room is highlighted by a wood beamed ceiling and recessed lighting that underscore the built-in bookcases and natural fireplace. A pair of French doors provides access to the wrap-around deck looking out over the backyard. Not to be overlooked in this room (and in ten other rooms throughout the home) is a hidden Stealth Acoustics surround sound theater system buried into the woodwork.

Vantage—the televisions, stereo systems, lighting throughout the home and even the multiple zone climate control system can be managed with the touch of a finger from any iPad. It is a technologist’s delight. Even with the open concept, the adjacent kitchen still takes on a feel of its own thanks to the double island design of the room. Although both

islands are finished in granite, the outer island sports a row of bar stools, its own copper and brass prep sink and a beverage chiller—perfect as either a breakfast or entertainment bar. The inner island is a bit more functional for the chef in the house with two stainless steel sinks and plenty of cabinet space. The kitchen is loaded with additional features including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and freezer; Wolf range and exhaust fan; a Miele automatic coffee machine; a large walk-in pantry; writing desk; a custom-designed backsplash and a cooking area that is finished off with an ArcusStone surround which is a Limestone coating developed in Europe in the early 1960s. Bordering the kitchen to the east is the dinette area and a perfect complement to the other two rooms. A circular room big enough to support a table for ten, it also has a wall of windows providing the ultimate view of the back patio, landscape work and a great view of the golf

kitchen. The first one heads toward one of the garages and also passes by the main level laundry and mud rooms. The laundry room could actually double as a craft or hobby room, as it includes a ton of cabinet space and built-in desk and work areas. This back hallway also leads to the stairs for the lower level and a second set of stairs to the upper level, in addition to a full bath and the mud room. The second exit off the kitchen leads to the formal dining room. This room continues on with the Tuscany theme, utilizing more of the sculptured ArcusStone to create a textured finish for the two built-in hutches that border the entryway. It also includes a butler’s pantry, accent niches, wainscoting, crown molding and pillar accents leading back out toward the foyer.

actually serve multiple different purposes. This family room for example, could also be used as a living room, den or another office. It includes a tiled floor, ceiling fan, walls of built-in shelving and storage and pocket doors leading to the sunroom. The sunroom is a quaint little room on the back corner of the home with two walls of windows and a private door to the balcony. Making our way up to the second level you’ll find that the creativity doesn’t stop. The spacious loft area really brings out the chocolate espresso maple flooring, another specialty feature that is common throughout the home.

B r a n dy b r oo k M a s t e r p i ec e of this level you’ll find the first two of six official bedrooms. One of them is over three-hundred square feet and the other is over two-hundred fifty. As with every bedroom in the home, each has its own private full bath and each has an awesome view of the exterior landscape. On the south end of this level is the master suite. The suite includes a built-in armoire and a morning bar with sink and beverage chiller. The highlight though, has to be the private balcony looking out over the landscape which seems to stretch for miles. From this vantage point, whether you’re a golf fan or not, the view just doesn’t get any better than this. The master bath is loaded with features as well, including a heated tile floor, his and hers vanities and a private make-up vanity, a step-in shower and a huge soaking tub with a stone accent wall including a mounted TV. Finally, we make our way down to the lower level to relax in the setting of a huge recreation room with full kitchen which includes a wet bar, beverage chiller, microwave, dishwasher and

stainless steel sink. While this level could easily be transitioned to an in-law quarters, it has so much to offer that might be a tough decision. In addition to the rec room there is a private music room, a game room with granite serving counters and room for game tables. There are also three more bedrooms with unique features of their own including walk-in closets and full bathrooms. Last, but clearly not least on this level, is an indoor sport court constructed of poured cement. At nearly six-hundred square feet and nearly twenty feet high, it is currently setup for indoor basketball but can be customized to suit your own needs. Some of the additional amenities in the home include: trowel plaster finishing in many of the rooms; wrought iron light fixtures; double-closets prepped for an elevator shaft; radiant heating support for all floors; Pella windows; heated garages; security system; sprinkling system; terraced landscaping; multiple sprawling stone

Setting High Standards in Educational Excellence Many families choose Shorewood as their home because of the nationally recognized school system. Just last year, Shorewood High School was named the top high school in Wisconsin by U.S. News & World Report. Outstanding academic programs are complemented by stimulating extracurricular activities to promote high achievement and performance, including athletics, music, art and a national award-winning drama program. Shorewood Schools seek to develop students who are critical thinkers, problem solvers, exhibit strong positive character and are engaged in the world around them. Learning strategies are designed to foster individual talents and abilities to create future leaders of their families, their professions and their communities and to prepare students for a lifetime of success.

Drive Uptown This Summer

The reinvention of the Lincoln Motor Company is in full swing at Uptown. Catch a glimpse of the new eye catching designs that are turning heads around Milwaukee and experience the upscale materials that make up the stylish new Lincoln interiors. Get 45 MPG with the Lincoln MKZ hybrid or get All-Wheel-Drive capabilities for year-round driving. Join the early adopters that understand that driving upscale begins at Uptown! Summer is the time of the year to open your huge panoramic roof and feel like you are riding in a convertible even though you have the safety of a 4 door sedan around you. The new Lincolns are designed to impress and you will find advanced features like massaging seats, an automatic parallel parking system, and the heated steering wheel. Uptown is your Lincoln headquarters in Milwaukee and we will find the perfect Lincoln to fit your style.
