Modern sophistication in a country setting. Welcome to The Canaan House, built by a master craftsman who left out no details. Custom kitchen cabinets, a Brazilian cherry floating staircase, wood floors and ceilings all intelligently designed. Walls of custom windows allow the outside in, giving this home the feeling of being in a tree house, with 22 acres of serenity enveloping your home. Listen to the stream beckon you to sit on one of the decks and take in nature. The flow of the main living level makes entertaining a breeze. This Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired home is energy efficient and is made to display art and reflect. The top level houses a master en-suite with a private deck, a second bedroom and bath. The lower level has two more BR’s and a bath.
