Inspired by the prairie architecture of famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright, this custom designed two story property features walk-through built-ins, high ceilings, stained glass windows and a gated lower level with a wine room.
“I wanted a warm and welcoming home with clean lines but with some interest. I have sourced lumber and stone from local companies in Wisconsin, California and even Germany. Anything I couldn’t source I made myself, including crown molding, doors, cabinets and counters,” says homeowner James Manson.
“I also did all the finishing work, from plumbing to furniture work. I started demolishing the old existing house 10 years ago and only completed it in June of this year,” says Manson.
“Applewood Acres was an ideal neighborhood to raise my daughter as the streets are quiet and there are good schools, parks, playgrounds, swimming pools, a community center and bike trails nearby,” he added.
The house is also close to restaurants, shopping and a hospital.
“This truly one-of-a-kind home features built-in hardwood furniture, quality appliances, energy-efficient materials and state-of-the-art high-tech equipment,” says listing agent Yuri Ching. “This property uses water jet underfloor heating.
