Nestled amidst lush greenery in the lower Montclair Hills is this modern three-level home. Newly constructed in 2015, the interior and exterior spaces feel fresh, new, and are simply stunning. Out front, the home’s tall, proud façade implements attractive, sleek architectural lines in beautiful juxtaposition with the forested canyon.
Inside, the striking style continues. Entering on the middle level, rich wood floors flow up to the main-level family room-kitchen combo. Sweetly dubbed the “treehouse” due to its elevation, this space provides unobstructed views of the wooded hills dotted with high-end homes through abundant windows. The family room features a triangular vaulted ceiling for expansive volume, and with decks on both sides, one can take in pink sunrises over coffee in the east and tangerine sunsets over wine hour to the west.
Seamlessly connected, the designer kitchen features sparkling stone counters, white cabinetry, and a gorgeous tile backsplash. Top-of-the-line Thermador stainless-steel appliances, including a six-burner range with pot filler, are the ideal equipment for delicious cuisine. And the wine fridge supplies friends and family their glass of pinot as they congregate in bar seating on the huge island.
Completing this main level is custom work-from-home space (conveniently able to be shuttered); a sunny bedroom; full stylish bath with a glass enclosed shower, stone vanity, and contemporary tile work; and laundry room with California Closets mudroom and storage.
A trail from the western deck leads to a perched seating area on the hillside for solitude and soaking in the vistas—all surrounded by myriad sweet flora nurtured by a talented green thumb. Back to the other side of the home is a patio with a full outdoor kitchen. Designed with form and function in mind, it features stone counters and modern brick backsplash. It includes a grill, fridge, sink, cabinetry, and even a dishwasher. No need to transport any dishes!
On the mid-level, the primary suite is plush and offers a spa-like bath with dual sinks and a glass-enclosed shower. On the front of the house is another large bedroom with its own private deck, which is served by a full bath, cohesive in the high-end design of all the home’s baths.
One flight down brings the lower-level bedroom, which can be used as an office with excellent storage. It also features a separate entry.
Saving money and the environment, the home’s solar panels help power the home and the Tesla Powerwall for both car charging and back-up power storage during an outage. What an important feature!
283 Beauforest is exceptionally located. On a wide street, navigating and parking are easy.
