Natural Element & Modern Style – Mount Horeb, WI
The oak grove surrounding this Modern Natural Element home in a rural Madison, Wisconsin suburb definitely inspired its design. The massive trees frame the home as you approach from the driveway, and once inside, the windows perfectly frame the 360-degree views.
Great northern flagstone from Montana, Douglas fir timber, shiplap walls and a broken edge granite countertop are just a few of the other natural elements seamlessly combined with a modern roofline and steel accents for a truly one-of-a-kind home. The modern layout arranges the 5,204 square foot, 5 bedroom home into warm, cozy wings.
The exterior features rustic, wood-toned board and batten and stucco siding, the covered entry a tongue and groove ceiling and distressed front door with antique hardware. Just inside is a stone feature wall with lighted shelving and hardwood floor with tile inlay. In the great room, the timber ceiling beams lead to the stone fireplace with timber and metal details. A steel TV and art display and a full wall of retractable screens to a heated screen porch complete the main living space.
Standing out in the kitchen are a wooden hood cabinet with Maple-Appaloosa finish, Clovis metal rivets and timber posts; an island with a prep sink; a walk-in pantry; and another tongue and groove ceiling with timber beams matching the cabinetry. The dining room has a beverage center in its buffet island. Also incorporated into the home are sliding barn doors, pulley-driven ceiling fans, and a second-floor loft.
