Hot Property: A Charming Contemporary Home in Bluffview Estates

All you really need to know: there’s a secret passageway in the library.

There’s always been something magical about a house on a hill — the thought of a gently sloping, winding driveway leading to a regal home, sitting proudly at the peak. This Bluffview Estates home lives up to that hype. 

Golden-hued lighting, like a beacon to visitors, casts a warm glow for curbside viewers. Inside, the home manages to marry a clean-lined, modern aesthetic with a homey and livable feel. Gunmetal-gray steel doors and windows, all with huge glass panes, bring the outside in — the impeccable landscaping practically serves as artwork in each room. With moody, dark wood flooring and white walls so bright they’re almost blue, the home’s interior is an ideal canvas for jewel-toned décor. Living spaces call for wintry touches like thick blankets and sheepskin rugs. Vaulted ceilings and blank wall space will offer a gallery-like backdrop for artwork finds its home in each room. Little touches, such as exposed beams, gold hardware, and white stone fireplaces, keep the sprawling home from ever feeling too stark.

Notable bonus spaces include a navy-blue media room (complete with tiered floors and space for a screen), a wine storage space, and a master bath with a steam shower. And finally, an elegant library, with floor-to-ceiling windows and built-ins dressed in shades of gray, is attention-grabbing even before you’ve discovered the secret doorway tucked among the bookshelves.
