Adachi Florist and Nursery are a beautiful home in the middle of the woods of Upstate New York. It has been described as the quintessential mid-century modern style home. It is actually a beautifully decorated, four-story home in the heart of the city of Utica, a resort town nestled in the southern Catskills Mountains, which has become a place of prominence for those who have earned their Masters of Architecture, and has also been a building site of famous architects like Donald and Mary Casella.
The homes are designed for the Japanese immigrant community which had their own little gardens and vineyards in the area. Many of these native plants have grown wild and provided natural cures for many of the illnesses that plagued the locals. Since these homeowners were a minority in their country, they began to bring their garden to this new America and turned it into a new industry.
All of the designer homes built today come with mid-century modern design and use all of the latest home appliances. The grounds are also lush and are manicured and the home itself is full of natural lighting that adds to the environment. Adachi is a vacation spot of some distinction with dozens of hotels around the area, and is in close proximity to major population centers of Buffalo and Syracuse.
The house is perched on picturesque backdrops of mountains and streams, and one gets the feeling that one can just walk around the outside of the house and take in the natural scenery and appreciate the beauty of nature. You can almost smell the new green grasses and feel the breeze. This in addition to the beautifully styled home appliances add to the soothing ambiance of the home.
The outdoors experience is very pleasant too with a deck that leads out to the pool and spa area. The outdoor rooms include a tea room, fireplace, bar and coffee and snack counter. The bedrooms are all within walking distance to each other.
Adachi was built in the early nineteen eighties and was then sold by its previous owners. They wanted to resell the home, and one of the sellers purchased the property and completed the renovation and added the finishing touches to bring it up to date. The current owners have been decorating and redecorating the house for over twenty years, and they now sell the home for twenty-five to thirty-five thousand dollars.
The renovations required to bring the house up to par and bring it to where it is today were handled by an interior design consultant who was able to create a style that appealed to many. There are three levels and each has a different style. If you love the western or Italian villa look, you will find that this house is for you.
The kitchen area is designed with lots of natural light, and the coffee bar has a wonderful view of the mountains. There is a vast room that is open with a wonderful view of the surrounding mountains. There are also a deck area and a walkway that lead out to the deck where you can sit back and watch the wildlife from your porch.
There is a multi-use fireplace in the home’s main living room that gives off a warm and inviting atmosphere. The living room is well designed and has the additional features that one would expect from the west coast. There are a beautiful and comfortable couch, a comfortable wooden love seat and a comfortable armchair.
If you are looking for a more tranquil setting, you will love the way the master bedroom is set in the garden, but is open to the beautiful view of the yard and the valley beyond, and the gorgeous sun room that features the same features. If you are interested in sitting in the garden and enjoying a book under the stars, the master bedroom also has an expansive window that allows you to enjoy a great outdoor view of the woods.
There is a large wood porch that leads to the backyard and has a gorgeous, well-designed deck that also includes a water feature. There are a private home gym with a hot tub and sauna and an exercise room that are open to the lawn. Enjoy the spectacular views from the deck and walk around the outside of the house and see how clean and comfortable you will feel.
The home has lots of charm and style, but it also has a great sense of quality and balance. The life style of the family and the designers make the home a place that everyone will enjoy.
