This Highland Park contemporary home was custom built with a unique design feature. There are no ground-level windows on the front facade of the house.
Now, before you picture a home devoid of light, it’s important to note that the back walls of the home are covered in windows and doors that let in plenty of sunlight. Listing agent Pogir of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty said this was an intentional feature because the homeowners wanted privacy in the design.
The house is the work of architect Mark Domiteaux and builder Robert Hopson and, it was built in 2019, according to the listing information. Pogir said the home has a C-shaped layout that creates that sense of privacy and focuses on the views in the backyard. Pogir said that the architect designs in a “concise” way with clean and clear lines throughout.
“There’s no wasted space,” Pogir said.
The home has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-bathrooms in its 5,649 square feet.
A study and a guest bedroom suite sit just off of the home’s foyer on the first level. The home’s main living spaces have an open-concept design with a few notable features. The kitchen has a large island that houses the sink, the cooktop, cabinet storage and countertop space that offers extra room for dining. Pogir said this home has a considerable degree of storage space thanks to numerous cabinets, closets and drawers throughout the home, especially in the kitchen.
“If a person loves to be organized, this is the house to be organized in because it has closets everywhere,” Pogir said.
The living room sits adjacent to the kitchen in the open-concept design, and there is a wet bar and a wine room on one side that both serve the space. A striking, contemporary-style fireplace sits on the opposite side of the living room and divides the space from the dining room. All of these rooms have views of the property thanks to a wall of windows-paned doors that overlook the pool and patio. Pogir said the doors were custom-designed for the house, and they open on a pivot and create the opportunity for indoor-outdoor living.
The home also has a game room, a den, a utility room and easy access to the two-car garage on the first level.
The home sits on a 0.203-acre lot. Outside, there’s a pool, patio and covered outdoor living space with a grill.
The home’s four remaining bedrooms sit on the second level. Pogir said the primary suite takes up nearly half of the square footage of the second floor. The primary bedroom is full of natural light thanks to a set of windows that bear a similar windowpane design to the pivot doors on the first floor. The bedroom is big enough to fit a seating area, and it also has built-in storage. The bathroom has two walk-in closets, two sinks, a walk-through shower and a freestanding bathtub.
The three other bedrooms on the second level all have en suite bathrooms and walk-in closets. There’s also a playroom and a bonus room or smaller office on this level, according to the floorplan.
The home at 4340 Fairfax Ave. is listed for $4,275,000.
