Question: Where does the Tour begin?

Answer: At the house EVERYONE (slight hyperbole) is talking about – the new house on Mathewson! You can stop wondering what it looks like inside because Myron and Judy have invited you in!

A few titillating facts:

The house began with a vision for a modern glass house on a hill in the woods and found a life in Crestwood. Their architects and builders created their tree house with open architecture and multiple terraces including an expansive terraced patio.OUTSIDE feast your senses on Asian gardens, a waterfall and a white cedar porch. INSIDE there is even more: European fixtures and appliances and Italian cabinets in the kitchen. The bedroom even has its own terrace with a jacuzzi, lacquered Italian bedroom suite and a TV cabinet with an electronic lift and an Italian bubble soaking tub. Plus the house is “smart”, controlled by mobile phones or i-pads; motorized shades and screens,computerized lighting, and an AV system in every room.Come see it for yourself….
