MAHARISHI STHAPATYA VEDA MASTERPIECE! Unique Feng Shui Home of Tranquility in Brightwoods 650-acre paradise beckon you to visit and enjoy a closer connection with Earth and nature, ensconced in a community of like-minded spirits. The MVA construction and design will soothe your soul, sustaining tranquility and an intimate, harmonious connection to the universe. Set on ten tranquil acres in beautiful Brightwood, an intentional community designed as sanctuary for nature and wildlife, you will enjoy the gentle, wooded approach and the serenity of arriving where the only sounds are wind in the trees and wildlife in the woods. Walking past the vastu fence, one feels ensconced in a womb of tranquility as the vastu and flowerbeds form a membrane between home within and world without. One breathes easier glimpsing golden glow of light flowing from within, aware how little space separates this home from its cocoon of nature. Glass is ubiquitous. The front door, facing the sunrise is a piece of art, heavy, stout, natural, beautiful. Once through the threshold, you feel energy flowing, circling easily throughout the home. There is little to block the flow, as few architectural divisions divide. Wherever we turn our eyes, channels of space and light open upon us. You find yourself relaxing. First in the foyer, feel the texture as the muscles in your feet undulate on solid slate. The texture travels under your feet and eyes a reminder that the materials inside are natural elements of the Earth. Eyes open above to a cavernous cathedral ceiling. Looking left and right one sees servants windows one to the kitchen, one to the great room. Here the floor transitions with such grace, balance and proportion from the slate hall to beautiful hardwoods on either side. Channels of light pass through this home uninterrupted in every direction. The Maharishi design is evident as we advance toward the Brahmasthan, which establishes the wholeness of this home. Here is the central space of the home, brightened beneath a skylight and cupola. One never walks on the Brahmasthan where you willl find a beautiful carpet, graced with small table and your favorite vase. As the vastu forms the perimeter, here we feel the center of the healthful energy in this home. Just past the Brahmasthan is the proportionally wide staircase climbing to windows releasing light to the west. From the center, left is the large welcoming kitchen and dining space, beyond which is a large laundry suite (my second favorite room in the home). Right is great room and first floor bedroom. Each of these spaces celebrates connection to nature with transparent walls. The exterior of this home is truly a membrane connecting inner and outer worlds. I breathe easier writing about this home just remembering the experience of being there, where the distinction between within and without is ephemeral. MVA connects more than divides. Circling into the kitchen is a delight experiencing light pouring through the glass over the large farm sink and dancing lightly on the granite counters and island. Glass cabinets continue the theme of transparency. Glancing through the pass-through service slots to the foyer brings you full circle. The island takes us back toward the comfortable dining space with table for eight. Around the corner, the large laundry suite is typical of the epic nooks and crannies that mark this home so specially as they ensconce one in a womb of warmth. The great room like all others here is merely space on the other side of a transparent membrane visually admitting within, the nature and wildlife without. Gazing out any of these membranes one can view gorgeous gardens in spring. With windows open, one hears bees buzzing by the apple blooms. Stay too long in garden with your glass of wine and witness a conflagration above as firmament explodes in celestial profusion like a garland of diamonds in the night sky. Nothing but nature intrudes upon your reverie. Back inside you will appreciate the country tongue-and-groove walls accented in tasteful pastels that obliquely blend the light nicely through the home. Ascending the staircase from the Veda Hall toward the mezzanine beneath skylights and cupola, forming a vast, vertical column of light, you are heading for some very special spaces. Here you will find three mostly glass-walled bedrooms. The master includes a designer bath mildly redolent of mid-century, art-deco Miami. I found the space piquant, from the exotic marble, curved counter, garden tub, stand-alone tile shower with wrap windows. The bamboo-like, louvre doors for linen closet complete the effect. In the master suite, the culminating moment for me was walking around the corner into the private study, ensconced as usual in glass to draw the outside within no matter what time of day or season. Why camp out when you can invite nature within the friendly confines of your own home! Walking back downstairs you will renew your appreciation of the subtle and artistic interplay of colors as well as the gentle punctuation of light from sconces gracing the halls and staircase. Walking away from this home at night â€“ that is what you will remember the glow of golden interior light flooding this comely wood. Overlooked in this description are the forty acres of community gardens, massive waterfalls, swimming holes, trout streams and hiking trails, just a short walk away, all in the amenities of Brightwood.
