About 5 Rusk Lane

In absolute pristine condition and idyllically paired with its unique 2 1/2+ acre forested setting, 5 Rusk Lane awaits. Experience peace and privacy on a whole new level in this enchanting home on the hill! Originally built in the 1970's, from 2020-2022, this brilliant open concept home was almost entirely renovated with an artful eye, channelling a Mid-Century Modern aesthetic! A light-filled double-height entry ascends to the home's main level featuring burnished hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings throughout. In the beautifully articulated Great Room, a mosaic of full-height and roof lined windows create a distinctive design symmetry, framing and ushering in the natural landscape beyond. A modern Danish floating wood stove gives warmth and light continuing the modern aesthetic in the home's Living Room. Featuring east-facing floor to ceiling picture and transom windows, the Living Room offers another lens onto the unspoiled outside environs. The kitchen, an inspired space with hillside views, embraces classic Mid-Century decor elements. Think clean lines, simple shapes and natural materials! Walnut cabinetry, stone counter surfaces and concrete tile, rhythmically arranged, imbue this space with a warm vitality. Uniting the kitchen and living area, the dining space, with uninterrupted interior and exterior views, includes French Doors leading to a diverse world of outside living and discovery. There are three main floor bedrooms including the tranquil primary bedroom with vaulted ceilings, matching double outfitted closets ceiling fan and ceiling lined windows. Brimming with natural light, the renovated hall bathroom, with radiant-heated floor and topped with skylight features an Italian shower with recessed window creating a refreshing out-of-doors vibe. Entirely renovated in 2020, the home's walk-out lower level features two generous living spaces: a media/family room and an office with door to driveway, both with wide plank floors, new windows and recessed lighting. Completing this level is the home's 2nd full bathroom, laundry and workshop. Myriad possibilities await out of doors: a flowing bi-level deck for alfresco dining, entertaining or peaceful contemplation. Beyond the deck, rock outcroppings provide a dramatic backdrop for outdoor barbeques, fire-pit for bonfires under the stars or imaginative exploration, unique to this setting. Complete wall insulation and new electrics on the ground floor, new dehumidification system, wi-fi controlled thermostats throughout and mostly new windows. Close to hiking and biking trails, horseback riding, farms, shopping, restaurants, entertainment and MetroNorth - this is truly a hidden gem!
