Property Description

From the beginning, 6126 Autumn Bluff Rd. was designed to be in harmony with its
surroundings. Nestled among mature hardwoods on nearly 9 acres, abundant
glass bathes the home in natural light and provides expansive views of the
surrounding forest. Consistent with the home's harmony with nature are the many
"green" elements incorporated into the home's construction; Superior Walls
foundation, Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) main floor walls, double-pane gas
filled windows, and solid foam insulation around the windows and in the ceiling,
create an energy efficient envelope around its inhabitants. The ceilings of the
home display extensive vaulting. From the 10 and 11 foot bedroom ceilings to the
great room which soars up to 18 feet, few flat ceilings exist in the home. The
extensive character of the ceilings precluded the use of SIPs for the roof; the truss
plan for the roof was 92 pages long! The building materials also reflected the
home's "green" nature: HardiPlank siding and architectural stone veneer, in
addition to being insect resistant, also has less impact on natural resources than
wood or vinyl. The flooring inside the home is bamboo throughout, chosen for its
sustainability as much as its beauty and durability. The temperature of the home
is controlled by a high efficiency dual fuel heat pump/gas furnace which
automatically switches from electricity to gas when outside temperatures drop and
the heat pump is less efficient.
Though constructed for low energy use (average electric bill for last 6 months -
$110) and years of maintenance free living (20 – 25 year warranties), the home
does not lack for luxury. Angola black granite, chock full of crystals, adorns the
counter tops throughout the home, including the laundry room. The kitchen has
all stainless steel appliances, a modular JennAir stove (there is a grilling module
for those rainy days when you want a nice steak but don?t want to get wet grilling
it) and gorgeous accent lighting. The master bath contains a large tile and glass
shower. If a bath is more to your liking, a two-person jetted tub with a bay window
awaits. No need to leave the bath oils behind, the air jet tub, unlike water jets, isn't
bothered by oils, salts, or scents. With the on-demand gas hot water heater, there
is need to worry about running out of hot water, either! For outdoor living a large
deck is found off the great room. To add to the ambiance, there is a see-through
fireplace between the deck and great room. If you'd prefer to stay out of the sun,
a spiral staircase takes you to the patio below. From the patio there is direct
access to the lower floor of the home or only a few short steps to the pool and its
deck.
6126 Autumn Bluff Rd., your private country paradise not far town.
