Three words best describe this one-of-a-kind, four-bedroom, contemporary haven—sleek, sophisticated, serene. Who wouldn’t want to come home to this sanctuary at the end of a stressful day? It's set on two acres of wooded grounds and its sense of serenity is supported by a minimalist interior, nature views from every room, and a bright openness throughout, thanks to vaulted ceilings, skylights, and wall-to-wall windows. “The architect Vuko Tashkovich, who was also the builder, sited the house on the property to take advantage of the views and allow light to penetrate throughout,” says listing agent Michael Neeley.
