431 PAXINOSA RD E

$1,300,000
Welcome to this one-of-a-kind, 4580 square foot, architect-designed, Midcentury Modern-inspired residence with commanding long-distance views from its prime location in Easton’s sought-after College Hill area. A hidden front door opens to a gallery-style reception area. Behind the wall is a world of wood, glass and breathtaking views! A large living room and glass-enveloped sunroom showcase amazing views of the Delaware River and the Watchung Mountains beyond. The east view is framed by 55 feet of glass and sliding French doors opening to a comfortable balcony, where 10+ miles of views await. The dining room, family room and main bedroom suite are beautifully accented with solid cherry tongue-and-groove walls. Cleverly designed, the principal areas can remain open or be separated for privacy by oversized, suspended solid cherry pocket doors. The wood floors throughout the house are oak and other hardwoods. Lined in spacious cabinetry, the kitchen features several work areas and quite capably serves everyday needs and special occasions. The main level also features an owner’s bedroom suite with walk-in closets finished with custom cabinetry and a [neutral white] spacious bath with a wealth of storage. The upper level features two spacious guest bedrooms and a full bath as well as a large, sun-drenched office (potential for a 5th bedroom!) originally designed for use a painter’s studio, allowing northern light and eastern views to fill the room with peace and serenity. The lower level was transformed from raw storage space to a beautifully finished living area with an in-law (or au pair) bedroom suite, a full bath with a walk-in shower, cedar closets and a beautiful full kitchen. Completing the lower level is a family room, a mirrored exercise room with a barre, a glass-enclosed sunroom and an ancillary room with a sink (perfect pet spa) and a separate storage room (wine collectors, take note). This wonderful, finished space opens onto a balcony that mirrors the main floor balcony with an added large storage area for outdoor furniture, pots and winter storage. From there, low-rise stairs gently descend to an expansive ground floor deck surrounded by a lush garden. The stairs and deck are low-maintenance, durable Ipé, aka Brazilian walnut, which is four times as dense as teak and resistant to the elements and insects. This 300+/- square-foot deck is a secret world, ideal for pleasant weather dining and entertaining, and is partially covered by a sturdy, open-air, architect-designed structure with angled roof slats for air flow while providing full shade. Next to the deck, built into the hill, is a Koi pond with a waterfall. The deck looks out over a lush, varied, floral garden that also is home to a productive vegetable and herb garden, and winters over in a heated garden room. The grounds are irrigated and architecturally lit with an in-ground lighting system. While the house has efficient, zoned natural gas heat and zoned air conditioning, it is also passive solar. On a sunny, cold, winter day, the home is warmed by the sun. A recently installed, whole-house natural-gas generator provides year-round, worry-free living. This sophisticated, unique home enjoys the tranquility of a private, paved road that serves seven homes, all serviced by township trash pickup at the door. An oversized two-car garage is supplemented by additional parking in the private drive area for several other vehicles. Located minutes from Lafayette College and downtown Easton - - a foodie destination - - and with convenient nearby shopping, it is 70 miles from the Holland & Lincoln tunnels, this home is waiting for its new owners to enjoy the beauty of each season from high above town.
