805 Kessler Woods Entry 805 Kessler Woods Living 805 Kessler Woods Second Story viewThat brick and those walls! And look at all of those windows and sliding glass doors! Truly, this is a home with some sexy lines, and boy are they dramatic! That gigantic two-story fireplace has tons of impact, but I love how the home has a sort of “bringing the outside in” vibe, with sleek stained concrete floors and masonry that is identical to that used in the exterior inside. And with those windows and views, you’ll definitely get an eyeful of this tree-filled paradise that earns its name: Kessler Woods.

This particular listing at 805 Kessler Woods Ct. though, is one of my favorites among a slew of beautiful modern homes. This boxy two-story was designed by Work Architecture and built by English Heritage Homes, with landscapes by David Hocker. It is sizable and open, and has a fantastic post-industrial feel. There are three bedrooms, four full and one half baths, two living areas, two dining areas, a three-car garage, and more than 3,700 square feet of modern interiors. It’s listed by David Griffin for $1.5 million.

Because the living spaces are located above the garage, you get a treehouse-like feel, which is also very private. That, combined with the huge walls of square-shaped windows, gives almost every room a view of the neighborhood and 12 Hills Nature Center, including the breakfast area and the kitchen. Honestly, these two areas dining areas and the gigantic kitchen may just have the best views in the house! Of course, you get modern wood-grain cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, a eat-in bar, and a built-in wine cooler. The mosaic backsplash is a bit much for me, and it’s missing a pot-filler above the six-burner range. Still it is smoother than a baby’s bottom and extremely spacious. It’s the perfect setting for long-into-the-night dinner parties.

Upstairs you’ll find a casual-feeling family room that is a cozy space for watching movies and hanging out. While a lot of modern homes look about as comfortable as a cactus, this one is a bit more laid back and would suit a family quite well.

What do you think of this cool powder bath? When I was touring Allied Stone earlier this year, Fraun Delafield told me that we’d be seeing a lot more integrated vessel sinks like this marble one, where the sink is actually carved to precision out of a large piece of marble, granite, or onyx. I can’t wait to see more of these! 805 Kessler Woods Master 805 Kessler Woods Master Bath 805 Kessler Woods Balcony

The master suite is full of potential, though in this master bedroom it’s a tad unrealized. Go ahead and let your imagination run wild, though. Think of how you could put in a gorgeous chaise lounge near the sliding glass doors that lead to the private balcony, or how you could put in one of those fantastic modern upholstered beds from Bernadette Schaeffler Collection! The master bath is beautiful, though, with a large vanity and dual sinks and an equally over-sized shower with two heads. And then there’s the balcony, which is perfect for morning coffee!
