Long awaited rare Ziger/Snead contemporary masterpiece with international touches isn't just a home; it's a work of art. Designed by award-winning architect Douglas Bothner and perched on five private acres off of River Road, Stoney Creek sits amongst the woods, near a cliff overlooking Sandy Branch River. Shou gi ban (burnt Japanese wood) siding presents a sleek exterior. The open, symmetrical floor plan is an eye pleaser, with smooth lines, minimalist design, and luxury building materials and finishes. The main level offers luxurious Italian tile under your feet and two long walls of floor-to-ceiling windows from the central main living area to the single bed-and-bath suites at either end. A deck extends along the living area on one side of the house. In the quartz kitchen, top-of-the-line appliances are neatly built in to the landscape, maintaining clean lines. Bedroom occupants enjoy large walk-in closets, glass-enclosed walk-in showers, and floor-to-ceiling views of the breathtaking surrounding woods. The symmetry continues with a stairway to the lower level outside of each suite. The lower level has two more bedrooms with a full bath between them, in addition to a laundry and mud room, and large theater or rec room with screen and projector for entertainment. Floors and walls are polished concrete.
The incredible grounds were created with the philosophy "flat garden in forest woods". Two concrete planters sit at the exterior corners, and metal chains appear to cascade down the sides of house, like floating art. The home was well designed, utilizing a significant amount of engineered lumber and architectural grade spec mix concrete to achieve a consistent finish throughout.
The house is also well insulated utilizing a combination of exterior rigid, spray foam, and batt type insulation. The siding of composed of burned cypress, produced with the shou shugi ban method, processed and delivered from Oregon, along with custom milled cedar and ipe decking. The interior finishes included select white oak wood flooring, polished and sealed concrete, quartz countertops, and imported tile from Spain and Italy. A true showpiece awaits you in Potomac! Sure to be regarded for generations to come!
