brown overstuffed couches- ideal for a leisure time of reading the local paper or watching the game on the large flatscreen television. An alcove- perfect for beloved books, family photographs and a favorite piece of pottery- is located directly above the television and alongside the fireplace, extending into the high grooved ceiling. The components of the living room create a relaxing and hospitable environment for entertaining guests and engaging with family. Matching the fireplace in the living room, black granite countertops cloak the contemporary kitchen, including the island located in the center. The island has an abundant open space for preparing passed down recipes, and is the perfect place to pull up a bar stool for in depth Saturday morning breakfast discussions. White cabinetry elucidates the abundance of storage space, situated against the prominent rich crimson colored walls and expanding to the kitchen table encircled by expansive windows. The kitchen table, ideal for lunchtime, is adjacent to the walk out to the partially covered porch where lounge chairs await. The modern black appliances and glossy hardwood floors make this kitchen a true showpiece. Exiting the kitchen to the opposite side, is a hidden wet bar area that overlooks the living room through a thick arched cut out window of the wall. The wet bar dons a mini fridge, see-through glass cabinets, and a wooden wine rack. The wet bar is in an idyllic location, attached to the formal dining area where glasses of wine can be easily accessible during social gatherings or special occasions. The dining area is once again encased by expansive windows, and in this particular area the scenery is of the front yard landscape. The room is commanded by a large wooden dining room table, companioned with a wooden china cabinet and a marble-topped table. A deep yellow coats the walls of the room with navy blue bottom trim. The finishing touch of the room is the modern chandelier, which hovers over the bouquet of bloomed flowers that are arranged impeccably in a round clear vase. Heading towards the master suite, there is a half bath and a “need beâ€? room that currently serves the role of an office. The office has large windows that overlook the front landscape, as well as the natural forested back yard. This room provides a perfect tranquil and inspiring place for stimulating ideas and alone time. www.HighCountryHomeMagazine.com •57
