Orchard Heights Residence
With views of Salem, the single family residence sits high on the property and was designed in the farm house contemporary style. Covered porches provide for yearlong outdoor enjoyment, vaulted ceilings at the top floor increase volume, and durable finishes throughout complete the 4 bedroom home. Recently a shop was constructed to match the residences appearance.
Other features include a large open area that includes the great room, dining room and kitchen. The traditional living room was not provided for preference of this large open area. Children’s bedrooms include lofts and vaulted ceilings, and a wood fireplace is provided in the great room and one of the exterior decks.
This single family residence sits at the side of a hill nestled in trees. The homeowners desired a Mediterranean appearance, that includes stone accents, copper roofing and stucco finishes. The ground floor features a theater room, wine cellar and bar that is open to the exterior deck overlooking the pool. Entering from the second floor, a circular entry draws you into the two story great room. Within the entry the doors and frames are curved to follow the curve of the walls. The great room features a large stone fire place and heavy timber trusses. A balcony from the master suite overlooks the great room. The great room is also attached to a continuous exterior deck that also overlooks the pool, seasonal creek and back yard.
One of our favorite features of the home is the central stair that connects all three floors. It is a floating circular staircase supported by a central core and at each level. Exotic woods and wrought iron make up the stair which provides great views to each level. The home also features a high level of interior craftsmanship for woodwork, plaster finishes and exotic flooring.
