Introducing the Sago: A Modern Farmhouse Dream Home
Stunning luxury home located in West Hills Subdivision! This New View Designs home by Laurie Cole was featured in East Coast Living magazine for September 2022. Thoughtfully designed, this modern farmhouse dream home offers 4 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms on over a quarter acre in the city.
Functionality, accessibility, and technology were all top of mind during the design of this spacious R-2000 compliant home, known as the “Sago”. Additionally, it is located in one of Fredericton’s most prestigious communities, with the West Hills Golf course only steps away. Many other city amenities such as schools, dining, and shopping are also nearby.
Inside, enjoy modern comforts such Lutron smart switches, heated tile floors, Nest doorbell, and more. The home boasts a rustic style that is balanced by elegant, yet effortless, features such as the open floor plan, high ceilings, and tall doors to maintain proportions.
Starting on the Main Floor
Enter from the covered concrete front porch to find an impressive foyer, with the front and back entrances mirror each other. Matte black tile and black tray ceilings lead from front to back, keeping the entrances visually separate from the rest of the space despite the open concept floor plan. On the right is a beautiful kitchen which further demonstrates the modern farmhouse style with a mix of stone, wood, glass, plus quartz counters. White floor-to-ceiling cabinetry is accompanied by sleek iron and glass cabinets, all backed by a stone backsplash that runs up to the ceiling. The raw stones were carefully selected and grout washed for a French farmhouse feel. Quartz counters top this space and the 10ft island, which boasts sink, breakfast bar, and rustic shiplap sides.
Next, find a cozy banquette which provides additional storage. A walk-in pantry with butcher block countertops and wine fridge is tucked behind a custom 8ft barn door. This space also offers great storage.
On the opposite side of the foyer are the living and dining rooms, separated by a double-sided propane fireplace. The dining room also features a dry bar with coordinating stone backsplash. These spaces feature ultra high ceilings clad in black shiplap.
Incredible Primary Bedroom
Next is the spacious primary suite. The common wall between this space and the living area is sounded insulated for peace and privacy. The primary bedroom, with a vaulted ceiling with large, black beams, maintains the home’s rustic mood. The ensuite bathroom follows, boasting a gorgeous walk-in shower with a mix of white herringbone tiles, black and white penny tiles, and glass walls framed with black mullions. The penny tiles also adorn the bathtub, with a unique rectangular shape and black exterior. An 8ft floating double vanity boasts quartz counters and a matching floating wooden shelf. Finally, find the walk-in closet with custom shelving.
Completing the main floor, find a den, powder room with beautiful finishes, and a large mudroom. The mudroom accesses the attached 2-car garage, offering a floating wood bench flanked by floor-to-ceiling cabinets for storage. This room also hosts the laundry, with lovely white cabinetry, warm wooden counter, and convenient pullout drawers for laundry bins.
Second Floor Amenities
Next, head to the upper level via the prominent floating stair-tower, with a striking black steel stringer clad with solid 3” wood treads to match the engineered hardwood floors on the main level. The second floor hosts, first, a sitting room to help ensure the privacy of the bedrooms. This bright space features a moody wet bar, with black shiplap, dark cabinets, and a wooden counter and floating shelf.
Down the hall, find three bedrooms. The first is currently used as a gym and features a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with a steam shower packed with amazing features. Extra structural support in the gym floor provides peace of mind housing heavy gym equipment. The other two spacious bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom.
