As you enter,  clean lines, soft colors and subtle touches make Carl and Karen Fraker’s house striking and dramatic. The free floating staircase to the loft, embellished with glass, is stunning with alcove photos of grandchildren and unique sculpture accompaniments. The drama in the home is created by a one-of-a-kind chandelier lighting the foyer and dining area.

The contemporary home features wood floors, a wall of glass, harmonizing shades of biscuit and ivory with aqua. An impressive kitchen with granite countertops and floor to ceiling cabinets, specifically designed for the house, features handy cut-outs.

The open living areas flow together with eye-catching artwork, delightful glassworks and whimsical additions, including the “fun” butler in the pantry. Noticeable design touches continue in the guest bathroom and bedroom.

The home lends itself to entertaining which is a regular activity for the Frakers. Flowing nicely from room to room, this contemporary vision makes an architectural statement.
