Canterbridgia, Estate of the Day
As a rule, I don't highlight homes in progress unless they are truly interesting. But I don't often seem contemporary homes being built in the horse country of Lexington, Kentucky. This modern home sits on over 10 acres of Bluegrass land. The home is on a private lane and has both a main house and separate guest quarters. The modern home will have a reflecting pool along the front entry and access will be via a bridge over the pool and a water fall with pool installed along the rear. The tower includes a balcony. The home is all angles and glass and steel. The only traditional notes seem to be the massive brick fireplaces and the Kentucky Walnut floors. There will be an indoor/outdoor spa room with glass walls, skylights, outside limestone shower, Finlander sauna and whirlpool. The home will have an impressive Artemedia Kitchen from Valcucine done in gray glass with graffiti artwork signed by the artist and the latest high-end appliances.
The master bedroom is on the first floor and will have a tub and limestone shower and stairs leading to a dressing room and the spa room.There will also be a media room with a viewing platform and motorized curtains. The second level will have three bedroom suits with private baths. Other features include a solar heating system, library, dog wash and an office. The guest quarters include a living room, kitchen with laundry and a master suite and there is also a three car garage. It is listed at $4.25 million. After the jump, future Dwell eye candy.
