In terms of architecture, "contemporary" and "modern" are not synonyms. "Modern" refers to the modernist architecture of the early and mid-20th century, an era of great change in the American landscape. "Contemporary" architecture retains modernism's devotion to connecting the indoors and outdoors, and to achieving a feeling of spaciousness. The ethos of contemporary design and energy efficiency and, as well as a devotion to sustainable materials led to this truly innovative design by Darren Whatley, a nationally known designer. Darren understands the human need for contact with nature, right down to the walnut floors, the expansive floor to ceiling windows and a "living" roof with green plants. Located in the "filet" section of Highlands living, this home sits modestly with pride, if such a phrase can be used, on an estate sized lot on Bowery Road, with conservation easements by its side protecting its privacy and love for nature. The state-of-the-art kitchen is truly the heart of the house; it's open to the great room and dining area with a glass wall that opens to the screened porch. This home places a huge emphasis on entertaining, particularly including the outdoors. Perfect for casual entertaining, the beautiful dining area can also host the most elegant of dinner parties. Spa bathrooms accompany each of the four bedroom suites. The wine cellar on the terrace level is climate-controlled. A spa deck with hot tub is on the terrace level to enjoy the fairy land venue. This home is not just a trend-it is a communion with nature-creating a classic ambiance of harmony and relaxed sophistication.
