Why We ♥️ Love It
1. Private Setting and Impressive Grounds
There are no neighbors in sight from this property, giving you the ability to escape into your own private retreat at the end of a long day! The paved, winding driveway leads you up the hill from the main road and circles the house, creating quite a grand entry as you approach the front of the home.
The well-manicured lawn extends around the sides and rear, ensuring this home looks amazing from every angle!
There is a large level field adjacent to the driveway on the right side of the home that would be the perfect place to play a game of touch football, work on your golf game, build an out-building/garage of your dreams or even an area to have a barn and some animals on this unrestricted 14.5+ acre parcel.
2. The Curb Appeal and Landscaping
With a brand-new circular driveway in the front of the home and a fresh design and install of the landscaping around the entire property, the curb appeal from any angle is absolutely stunning! This is a property you'll be proud to show off to your friends and family and you'll have plenty of room to park when they do come to visit!
As you approach the front entry from the circle drive it's easy to see the exceptional quality construction and craftsmanship that went into this home. From the keystones above each window, the arched brick entry porch and of course the gorgeous craftsman front door, you are immediately greeted by quality finishes all around.
3. The Layout
The floorplan and layout of this home is one that will work for many stages of life. With multiple levels and split bedroom layout, this home has a private retreat for everyone.
Welcoming you from the beautifully appointed front entry foyer are a formal Living and Dining room that are central to the home and provide a quiet place to read a book or host a formal family dinner.
The Master Suite occupies the left wing of the main level, offering beautiful hardwood floors, large sets of double windows, french doors giving access to the rear porch plus an en' suite bath w/dual vanities, walk-through closet, and a jetted tub.
Off to the right of the front entry foyer, you'll find the second bedroom suite on the main level. With gorgeous hardwood floors also extending into this room plus the full en' suite bath with dual vanities, walk-in shower, and a garden tub you have the feel of a true second Master suite on this level.
As you head from the second bedroom towards the right wing of the home your next stop will be the Kitchen and Breakfast Nook. This kitchen is fully appointed with a gas cooktop and range hood, wall oven, warming drawer and built-in microwave, plus a center island with prep sink that will allow for some serious cooking!
The breakfast nook is large and features a built-in desk area, french doors leading to the rear deck for easy access to the outdoor grilling area from the kitchen, and connects to the Family Room via a butler's pantry.
Off the butler's pantry connection is a door leading to the 840+ sqft of unfinished attic space that could be finished off for another bedroom suite, bonus or recreation room, or any other room you may have a use for that isn't already met in this home's fantastic layout.
The Family Room is one of the areas we think you'll enjoy spending a lot of time in. The cozy feel of this room is highlighted by the gas fireplace and the built-in cabinets and capped off with beautifully arched casings and an awesome coffered ceiling. Looking out the large windows at the private rear yard also gives you the feeling of living in a treehouse with all of the modern amenities!
These areas are laid out well for entertaining many guests during parties and gatherings, giving you options of sitting in the breakfast nook and chatting with the cook or kicking back to relax and watch the big game in the Family Room.
The remainder of the main level is rounded out with the mudroom and laundry area with tons of cabinet storage right off the 3 car garage, a 1/2 bath for guests, as well access to a private water closet off the garage entry in case you've been working outside and don't want to enter the main living areas to use the bathroom.
The 3rd and 4th bedrooms are in the basement and share a private bath which serves as the perfect place for an extended stay for family and friends, completely separate from upstairs.
There's also a finished space perfect for a dedicated home office. One important additional note about working from home and the capability of adding additional entertainment systems throughout the home is the entire house is wired with full Cat 5e network cabling, whole house audio system and the components of the audio system are included in the sale and ready to begin using right away.
And with the additional rooms available to be finished in the basement you could easily turn the basement into a full apartment or guest quarters with a full kitchen, living room or home theater and still have space for a home gym, office, and storage depending on how you chose to finish it off.
