In this modern-style home, the vessel sinks and faucets in the primary suite are the color of cast iron. They sit atop a thin slab of white quartz affixed to a floating black dual vanity. A black cabinet is poised above it all.

It’s this carefully considered use of neutrals that helps lend this home such a sophisticated, modern appeal.

The flooring seals the deal.

It’s clear from the curving driveway, koi pond, rocky planting beds, and segmented siding that this home is far from cookie-cutter.


The glass-panel front door leads to an open area encompassing the living and dining areas and the kitchen. The gleaming epoxy floor that connects it all is visually arresting. It has a smoky appearance in which dark colors intermingle with clouds of gray and white.

The kitchen is at the center of it all. An island with a sink and storage marks the spot where the working aspect of the kitchen begins. Black cabinets and a stainless steel backsplash, range hood, and stove line the wall behind the island. A word or two about the stove: It’s a JennAir dual fuel, meaning it has gas burners on top and electric convection ovens below. The counters are a black, honed granite. The space has a picture window, a side window, ambient lighting, and a glass door to the side yard.

Just a few steps away is a secondary kitchen with a sink, microwave, refrigerator, and two levels of cabinets.

The living and dining rooms — which are mirror images of each other with gleaming epoxy floors and plate-glass windows — flank the kitchen. Off the living room, which is in the rear of the house, there is a half bath with a clear vessel sink, epoxy flooring, and a black floating vanity.

In the only nod to traditional home design, the second floor is the bedroom level. The 225-square-foot primary suite boasts a walk-in closet with custom cabinetry, four windows with black frames, and a door to a balcony overlooking the back of the nearly half-acre lot. The flooring is an engineered hardwood.

The suite’s bath features the dual vanity mentioned earlier. There’s also a walk-in shower with dual heads (one is a rain shower head), glass doors with black hardware, and a porcelain tile surround with a black tile inlay. The flooring in the bathroom itself also is porcelain tile.

The other bedrooms (132 and 156 square feet) share a full bath with a black vessel sink, a black honed-granite counter, a shower, and porcelain tile flooring.

This floor also houses a laundry room with extensive white cabinetry.

The basement is finished and divided into rooms. — Joseph Morel Photography
