BlackRock Construction Wins Prestigious 2019 Home & Garden Awards
BlackRock Construction has been awarded two 2019 Home and Garden Awards, including:
Best Luxury Residential Construction Project (Vermont): BirdsNest, Completed October 25, 2018
Building this home didn’t just start from the ground up, it began by blasting into rock on the side of a mountain to clear the 133 acres of raw land for a 7,200 square foot rustern (rustic-modern) home perched at 300 feet of elevation with 180 degree unobstructed views of the Green Mountains of Vermont. That was just the beginning. The property includes a 1900 foot winding road that leads to the home. The 133 acres includes over 4 miles of professional trails for cross-country skiing, hiking, snowshoeing, ATVing, mountain biking, and more. Two acres of land have been cleared and set aside for an organic crop field, including apple trees.
From the entrance of the home, you move into a great room with floor to ceiling windows with views of the mountains, without another home in site. The classic elegance of wood, with modern touches can be seen throughout, including western red CBG siding, CBG hemlock in the kitchen, to a stone fireplace, vaulted ceilings, rustic knotty cedar, and mortar stone joints. The home also features a interior wood-fire pizza oven, and a 1,000 foot wrap-around deck with a drop-in hot tub, and a gym.
