The golden age of crooners has given us some of the best love songs of all time – as well as some of the best love stories too. Meet the Pahls, two lovebirds who have stood the test of time. These birds of a feather were in need of a forever home to end their migratory patterns, retire from the snowbird circuit and nest all year. Welcome, to The Turtledove.

This broad stately home stretches across the horizon as the many-tiered treetops sway behind it in the background. This unique transitional ranch is overflowing with beauty and purpose, a delightful aesthetic coupled with an age in place design. The large stone columns and other modern accents create a royal entrance to the home, where the large double doors are nested in a surround of sidelites allowing natural light to enter the home alongside our residents. Upon entry it becomes undeniably difficult to continue forward momentum. The stunning visual array of height, depth, feature and detail are weaved together so intricately that to fully absorb the magnanimous interior we must simply stop and stare. The multi-layered beauty here serves many purposes. First, to the immediate right, the study. The large office teeming with natural light teases from behind a set of glass paneled doors. Inside, the beautiful dark built-in cabinetry and custom desk display every single grain, knot, and charming characteristic of their manicured alder. Returning to the great room; large stained overhead beams and a fully encased stone fireplace surrounded by towering built-in cabinetry form a monumental focal point for the entire living space. Overhead, the beautiful wood highlights are continued to the exterior. On the opposite side of the six oversized windows a tongue and groove ceiling offers a collage of woodgrain that is almost hypnotic in it’s display of line and hue.

Opposite the ​Great Room ​fireplace is the hyper-functional corner kitchen. The perimeter of dark, handsomely toned cabinetry is subtly contrasted by the accented gourmet kitchen island. With incredible storage and utility the island is not the only highlight to this space. Inside the large walk-in pantry is a second room. This is the climate-controlled wine room. Centrally placed and cooled the room is designed to prevent any outside force from penetrating the bottles, be it light heat or microscopic particle, access is granted at the homeowner’s discretion. The entire main living space (great room, dining area, and kitchen) is mimicked on the exterior. The outdoor covered living area serves as a secondary great room, doubling the space, size and function of the lofty interiors.

The master wing provides a cadence for daily life. Interconnected amenities offer all that is needed in daily life and streamlines daily processes. The master suite glows brilliantly with an exorbitant amount of natural views and light via six additional oversized windows. In the master bath, a clear path is set before us. Between a warm rustic rock wall and an expansive set of twin amenities set before a large mirror wall we can see the entrance to the master closet. Behind the statuesque wall of stone is a curbless walk-in full tile double shower. Encircled with warm tones and polished tiles and filled with light and serenity this space will provide the perfect reprieve from any activity. Procession through the naturally-lit master closet brings our residents to the elliptical mudroom. Extensively outfitted with custom storage and utility this room is the most forthright in the home when it comes to inspiring swift activity. Additionally, two guest suites designed for separate generational living create additional venues for aging in place. The opulent man cave designed to host and entertain, boasts a luxurious built-in theater wall and separate wine bar. Collectively this home is well-appointed to please anyone lucky enough to pass through the awe-inspiring entrance.
