Elevated Living, from the outside in! Warm and inviting with a natural aesthetic that brings the outdoors in, this 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom home in the beloved Trails at Hiwan neighborhood is perfection. The private lot backs to 47 acres of open space, complete with 3 ponds and a trail system that links to the best of North Evergreen. Hike, bike or snowshoe right out your back door. Walk to Buchanan Rec Center, the 1600+ acre recreational paradise of Elk Meadow, local schools, community garden, Center for the Arts, and all the amenities of Bergen Park. In true foothills style, this sun-drenched home features floor-to-ceiling windows to catch that coveted southern exposure, 2 gas fireplaces and multiple outdoor living spaces. Ample and updated, the kitchen is at the heart of the home. Thoughtful design blends mountain rustic with gourmet glam. Warm wood custom cabinetry is topped by red dragon granite, a picture perfect complement to the red-dialed Wolf range and stainless Sub-Zero refrigerator. In the renovation, walls were removed to create an open concept flow that extends through the dining spaces to the stacked stone hearth room. With sweeping views of the entire meadow vista, Bergen Peak and Evergreen Mountain, you can watch the elk and deer stroll by over your morning coffee. The living spaces open to a deck that feels like you're sitting in the meadow. The main level primary suite features those same stunning views, a separate deck and 2 walk-in closets. The beautifully renovated bathroom has 2 quartz topped vanities and shower room tilework worthy of a design magazine. The light-filled lower level is home to an expansive recreation room that opens to a charming flagstone patio. Don't miss the backyard greenhouse with irrigation, it's the best way to garden in Evergreen! You'll also find 3 additional bedrooms on this level, one has custom built-ins, one has a huge walk-in closet and all have the most beautiful view in town. This special property is a rare find!
