Why it’s for sale. Irene, 71, a psychotherapist, says she no longer needs her home office space five days a week. (Mike, 72, is retired from the real estate industry.)

Irene has owned the home for 27 years and actually had a hand in designing it. She says of the home:

“It’s like a surprise house .?.?. When you walk in, it’s filled with so much light from the windows, the skylights and the glass doors. It’s modern, but you can do whatever you want to it .?.?. The home was unique at the time it was built. It has a cupola, which is unlike other houses here .?.?. There’s a fireplace in the den, the great room and the master bedroom .?.?.

"The house is on three levels. The first level is my office, the foyer, garage and basement. The middle level has the great room, the kitchen, a den, a laundry room and the master bedroom suite. The third floor has three more bedrooms, a huge loft area and a bathroom .?.?.

"We put in a new furnace, which is very energy saving, and granite in three bathrooms, and Silestone counters in the kitchen .?.?. The fireplace in the master bedroom is gas, and the other two are wood-burning, but all the plumbing is there to be easily converted to gas.”
