Property Description

Welcome to this gorgeous home with many upgrades in a family friendly area. Whatever the size of your family, everyone will have space to gather together or find privacy, indoors or out. Unwind in the park-like backyard with multiple areas for relaxing or entertaining. This home has many flexible living areas, perfect for working from home or remote learning. The large foyer is flanked by the dining room and the living room with double doors, currently used as an office, and leads to the open family room with soaring windows. This floor also features a spacious 72-handle kitchen with peninsula, large island, and walk-in pantry. The adjoining sunroom has a heated tile floor and the views will take your breath away as you watch the seasons change. This level includes a library/study, perfect for homeschooling, with built-in bookshelves and doors for privacy, a laundry room, and powder room. All of the arched doorways on this floor have been finished with custom wood trim. You’ll find the master suite at the top of the wide oak staircase. In addition to the large bedroom, there is a comfortable sitting room with window seat, huge closet with custom built-ins, a full bath with soaking tub, walk-in shower, double bowl vanity, and lots of storage. Enjoy your morning coffee or watch the moon rise from the walk-out balcony accessed through French doors. The additional four bedrooms are down the hallway and accessible from the kitchen below via the convenient rear stairs. Two bedrooms have walk-in closets and share a hall bath while the remaining two bedrooms are connected by a Jack-and-Jill bath. Any of these rooms would be suitable for an office, playroom, or crafting space. Every room in this home affords you sweeping views of the outdoors. The lower level features Superior Wall construction, a finished area which would make a great theater room, complete with an under-stair area for play or storage. The unfinished area has ample room for storage, is plumbed for an additional bathroom, and has interior stairway access to the oversized 3-car garage with epoxy-coated floor and wall storage for all your tools and sports equipment. The location is quiet and private yet not remote, and close to shopping, schools, restaurants, and the recreation of Blue Marsh Lake. This quality home is equipped with a security system, reverse osmosis and UV water system and comes with a one-year home warranty.
