This 5-bedroom, 5-full and 1-half bath home in Clarkson Valley is listed for $1.38 million.

Imagine spending a relaxing Saturday in this beautifully appointed home, with renovations designed by architect Lauren Strutman. Wake up in the luxurious master suite, with a stone fireplace, dome-lit ceiling, crown molding and access to a private deck. The master bathroom’s marble floor, sauna, his-and-her sinks, huge walk-in shower and beautiful views of the property’s 3 picturesque acres make for an invigorating start to your day. Crack open your favorite cookbook in the custom gourmet kitchen, featuring Bosch, Dacor and Subzero appliances, plus granite counters and fabulous ironwork by Todd Kinnikin of Eureka Forge. Beyond the large foyer, which features marble flooring and soaring ceilings, is the hearth room. It boasts a spiral staircase that leads to a loft, with a wet bar, Murphy bed, full bathroom, TV area and built-ins. The living room’s skylights, large carved-wood fireplace, vaulted ceilings and plantation shutters make it a great place to settle in with the newspaper. Or head downstairs to the lower level, with family, recreation and workout rooms, plus a covered patio with access to the outdoor pool.
