Modernistic Marvel

Michael Hynansky transformed a stone contempo into a modern masterpiece that’s perfect for entertaining friends or just getting away from it all.

The master suite features a large bed with a tall, upholstered headboard and a leather bench at its foot. The homeowner wanted to give the space a spa-like feel.“I wanted a spa-like room,” he says. “This is simple and peaceful, a place to rest away from the world.”

That sense of tranquility extends to the master bath, where a long, yacht-like vanity is topped with a counter of Jerusalem limestone. Trim, contemporary faucets are mounted on the backsplash above rectangular sinks set under the counter. There’s a large, walk-in shower so spacious, there’s no need for a door to prevent water from splashing into the room.

The lower level is ideal for guests, with two bedrooms and baths and a cozy sitting room and fireplace.

A fully equipped, professional-grade gym gets a regular workout. “I really use this,” Hynansky says. “This isn’t one of those gyms where dust gathers on the equipment.”

The casual sitting room features a modern fireplace with a chimney that hangs over the hearth. The kitchen is a hub of activity. The grain on the oak cabinetry is defined with a pale wash, then polished. It’s an updated twist on a traditional material. The space is open to the dining room, allowing Hynansky to easily interact with his guests. “I love to cook,” he says. “I love to entertain.”

His culinary feats include cooking a traditional 12-course Ukrainian seafood dinner for 35 guests. He is equally passionate about preparing a simple weekday supper for his fiancée and family.

To that end, he equipped his kitchen with professional-grade appliances, including an eight-burner Wolf cooktop, a warming drawer and a Sub-Zero refrigerator. (The matching stainless-steel handles on the pull-out pantry shelves next to the fridge are Sub-Zero hardware.) Climate-controlled wine storage can accommodate 150 bottles.
