A Home with Striking Sophistication

In the serene, tree-lined neighborhood of Country Club Oaks, an unparalleled experience awaits. Built in 2023, the 6,500-square-foot home exudes luxury from its marble-wrapped exterior to its abundant and bold interior. As a new build, the home is sure to be one of Omaha’s most exclusive finds with bold architectural elements that are truly one-of-a-kind.

It was the original owner’s dream to build her future house, and for six years, she did. However, she decided to sell the property at the drywall stage. This led Michael Maley, realtor with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Ambassador Real Estate, to purchase the property. “There was a ton of potential when we walked through it,” Maley said. “It just looked super sad and lonely.” He knew the property offered significant potential for future development or expansion.

For two years, Maley dedicated himself to home renovations with plans to sell the finished home to friends. Due to the project’s rising costs, he switched gears and built a spec home, which came with its own set of challenges. “With a $3 million spec, everything must be perfect,” he said. “It’s not like you’re flipping a regular house. If there’s a scratch on the floor or the paint isn’t perfect, that will be an issue. People can be discerning about small things because nobody has to buy a home like this, but it adds a lot of pressure, which can cause delays in projects.”

Appearances can be deceiving, particularly when it comes to the home’s exterior. The blend of rectangular shapes and angular roof lines may seem disjointed, but the interior reveals the home’s geometric design and its harmony of creative elements that link each area. Maley reassures that despite the exterior’s unique appearance, the interior flows perfectly and seamlessly.

Sleek and sophisticated, the modern home meshes warm vibes with rich walnut woods to showcase the cleanest lines amid its impeccable design features. Many renovations—like swapping finishes, moving fireplace locations, and installing soaring ceilings—lifted the previous stark design to create the extravagant home it is today. Maley said the completely reimagined interior was worth the wait to get things perfect, leaving no detail missed and ensuring the right buyer would come along.

The $3 million home is a haven of luxury, featuring oversized custom windows that offer breathtaking views of nature. The home is a sight to behold, inviting exploring of each spacious room and its features. Whether it’s hosting lavish dinner parties in the chef’s kitchen (complete with exotic quartz and endless amounts of storage), unwinding in the primary bedroom’s attached spa-like bathroom, or enjoying a quiet read in the main floor’s library (featuring custom built-ins and a private guest suite), the home is a treasure of priceless features.

A trip down the custom spiral staircase welcomes you to the lower level, adorned with 20-foot ceilings. One may kick back at the private bar or hang out in the additional recreational room complete with billiards and overflowing amounts of space. Despite the home’s abundant entertainment options, the private decks and connected patios offer havens for quiet gathering spaces.

Beyond the square footage, the high-end home appeals to the most discerning buyers. “The finishes are unseen in Omaha,” Maley said. “It is very well thought out in terms of the floor plan.” Those who appreciate artwork and design may also make great use of the plentiful space, creating endless opportunities to make this house a home.

Maley acknowledges that the house may not be desirable to everyone, but he believes its quality is unparalleled. “It’s fun to look at what it’s turned into over two years,” he said. “You’ll probably never see a house like this again. It’s beyond a house. Someone is buying a piece of art.”
