Welcome to Jake Ridge

Welcome to this enchanting home, created with elegant, old European design that conjures the quaintness of a simpler time while offering the pleasures of luxury living. In the beautiful countryside of Fairview, where horse farms and rolling hills abound, this resplendent home greets you with cobblestone paths, tall, old growth trees and gas lit lamps set on the stone and wood porch. An expanse of windows in the lodge style great room offers spectacular forest canopy views and the stacked Tennessee stone fireplace with a Douglas fir mantel flanks the room with warmth under the vaulted wood planked ceiling and cathedral wood beams. Stone stacked walls and pillar bases, with alder wood flooring and stone and wood accents create continuity throughout the home, bringing the calm of nature and the outdoors into the living space.

Created as the hub of the home, the gourmet kitchen is exquisitely well lit with pendant lighting and equipped with a farmhouse sink, double dishwashers, gas stove and hood, wood paneled sub zero refrigerator and granite counters that are a chef’s dream. Serve breakfast at the high bar or in the turret shaped dining nook, with its domed ceiling and surrounding windows. Step out onto the enclosed porch and cozy up to the stacked stone fireplace to savor a meal or a quiet afternoon of reading. The upper stone deck is crescent shaped and sits above the forest canopy where birdsong and the gentle breezes accompany the dazzling sunset.

Days begin and end in the exquisite master suite with a soak in the spa tub, where you can watch your favorite TV show, or rinse off in the double shower with sprays. Prepare a nightcap at the wet bar and wine rack and relax in the master den with the French doors open to allow the mountain air in. Once you settle in for a peaceful night’s slumber, the starry views will lull you to sleep.

The lower level was made for playing. With stained concrete flooring, stone walls and wood accents, another stacked stone fireplace will warm cold nights as you bask in its glow. Grab a bowl of popcorn in the kitchen here and head to the theatre where you can watch movies with surround sound, lounging in the soft chairs or sitting up at the eating bar. Take the family out to the enclosed patio with windows for a game night or to shoot a round of pool. For the bookworm, the refined library is meticulously built with floor to ceiling shelving, and offers a quiet spot for study or meditation.

While there are four bedrooms for family or guests, the comfortable in-law apartment is a place of its own. Located entirely on the upper level, a fully equipped kitchen, living room, bedroom and bath allow for independent living for family or visiting guests.

With the charm of old Europe and the comforts of modern luxury, this is a place for inspired living within beauty and elegance. This is a home that brings the forest and the heart together, where memories are made every day, and the prospect of peaceful living is at hand.
