The design has clean lines and wonderful wood accents with unique features. It features a stunning blend of wood, tray ceilings, marble and granite. It is over 6,500 square feet, five bedroom and five bathrooms on three levels, so there is more than enough room for everyone.

Also, the main floor master and master bath are large and luxurious.What is unique about your home or dcor?This home can be whatever style the buyer desires. It can be furnished in a contemporary manner, as it is now, or in a more mountain-traditional manner. In many ways, it is a blank canvas.

The space is already built, so all that is left are to deal with officials to obtain the requisite permitting and water and sewer taps if needed. There are front and back staircase accesses to the lower levels and a spot for a large wine room and storage.If you could change one thing, what would it be?The home looks like a one story home from the street and that is truly deceiving.

This home is listed at $999,999. You cannot recreate a home of this quality and size in the Snowberry area for $176 per square foot. It is a bargain at this price.
