Property Description

Country living in this Executive 3300 sf.  home on 7 acres (m/l). It covers an entire "block" with county roads on 3 sides and a power easement at the back.  No chance of neighbors too close especially with the adjacent 5 acres being included.  Three 12' tall Gargoyle lights for brightening up the front yard at night. Two large decks, one in front and one in back.  A 3000 sf. unfinished utility/storage  basement.   A 3 car garage which is insulated and finished.  The property also has a 3600 sf  finished shop with 2 studio apartments. The back part of the shop is built on a hill, providing cover for more storage as well as parking for a lawnmower and pick-up truck or medium size tractor.  An additional 5 acres is included which is adjacent from the shop.  (We bought it to avoid neighbors building too close).   Also included (under specific criteria) are 3 large insulated, finished buildings, 2 smaller buildings, a 2 car carport and dog yard fencing.  There are 3 separate heat pumps.  One for the main part of the house, one for the family room and one for the shop.  The home is wired for surround sound in every room but the family room.

You enter the home through double leaded glass entry doors into an open floor plan 818 sf  living room/great room with Marble tile floor.  At one end is a Bavarian glass fixture ceiling fan.  This end of the room has been used as a formal dining area which can easily accommodate a table for 14 people.  At the south end is a brick built in wood burning fireplace with blower which can also be easily converted back to gas logs.  (The line is still there.)   The space and layout of the room offers limitless possibilities for furniture type and arrangement.   2 sets of ornate bi-fold doors can close off the livingroom from kitchen.

Large 352 sf Kitchen has 2 three seat eating islands as well as room for a table for 6.  Jenn-air downdraft electric range in the island, with an extra built in eye level oven, Sub-zero refrigerator with matching wood panels (people don't even know it's there), ultra quiet Bosh dishwasher,  and a garbage disposal. All lower cabinets have pull out shelves so no struggling for things in the back.  Corner cabinets are Lazy-Susans.  Counter tops are custom made roll edge with a top grade scratch resistant material.  There is lots of surface space.  Floor is high grade tile. 

Family room is 552 sf with easy care shiny ceramic tile floor.  Theme is old world sailing ships. There are 2 entry points through leaded glass doors.  One is from the kitchen and the other is from the outside.  A custom designed regulation size Olhausen Pool Table with leather cover is included.  It has only had 6 games played on it!! A custom built double seat pool bench along with 2 sets of balls and 6 cues, etc are included.  The bench upholstery matches the wall paper trim.  The decorative sailing ships can also be included.  The 4 light bar for the pool table and the ceiling fan are on dimmer switches for the right light for the event.  There is an electric dart board inside its own cabinet included.  Plenty of room to add a poker table, big screen TV and comfort sofas and chairs.

Large 210 sf Computer room/office has bi-fold doors from the livingroom.  Ten windows cover 3 walls for great views of front yard, back yard  and shop.  Fiber-optic internet (100mps or 500mps options) , TV and phone through the electric company.  We are a test area and it has been fantastic in both price and service.  There is a counter with cabinet storage below and above.  Also has a sink.  There is enough room for 2 very large executive desks and all the computer monitors your desktops can handle.  New commercial carpet was just put in Oct 2017. 

Master suite is off the kitchen.  It is 14' x 23' (322 sf.)  The floor is marble tile.  It features his and hers bathrooms.  The closet is built to be movable so if your furniture arrangement warrants, it can be easily relocated on another wall or moved through the sliding glass doors to an adjoining room which I refer to as the 'dog room'.  Or a large walk-in closet can be re-built where we took the original one out.  Endless possibilities for this bedroom.

A short hallway with a closet at the end leads to His and Her bathrooms. His bathroom has a large 2 person shower.  The shower head is a line for easy showering.  Her bathroom has a jetted 6' garden tub.  Her bathroom also wired for surround sound! 

Guest bedroom is 186 sf.  It comfortably fits a queen size bed with room for dressers.  Large wall closet.  Two windows overlooking the back yard.  It's own bathroom with tub/shower.  The bedroom carpet needs replaced.  That has been taking into consideration in the price.

All bathrooms
have loads of cabinets.  They all have American Standard "flush anything " toilets.   The septic system is very large and after 2 people living here 14 years (and filling the garden tub every night) it was only half full when I had it pumped last year.  

Laundry room (66sf) is in a small hallway off the kitchen behind a pocket door ( I love pocket doors).  Deep sink, trash compactor and loads of cabinet space.  Plenty of room for vacuum, cleaning supplies, etc.  Easy access to heat exchange unit for Family room heat pump.

What I call the Dog Room. (136sf)  It has tile which matches the kitchen tile. This is off the kitchen and Master bedroom and has outside entrance. This room has limitless possibilities.  It has been used as a sewing room, reading room, grandchildrens play room and dog room. Because of the layout, a large closet from the master suite could be created and still have space for the dogs or grandkids in the rest of the room.  Or use your imagination. 

Spacious 409 sf. front deck.  Custom made rails. Gas B-B-Q grill hook-up.

The full unfinished utility basement adds 3000 sf. of storage space and a storm shelter!  Walk in access from the back of the house.

Three rooms consist of 2 Studio type Apartments that share a kitchen.  The rooms have separate outside entrances as well as inside access to the other rooms.    Or it could be one large apartment.  These are great for company or hired help.  Or they could be used as offices for a business venture. 

Two work rooms are 900 sf. each both with bathrooms and their own outside entrances as well as inside access to the other rooms.  The one on the north side has an 8' x 8' work table on an Eagle hydrolic car lift.  Great for any stand up or sit down job.  Height adjusts at the touch of a button. Whether your thing is crafts, wood working, welding, dog training,  musical jamming, model railroading or whatever, these rooms offer limitless possibilities for personal satisfaction or as a business venture. . 

The Garage boasts a 16' ceiling with Eagle car lift.  Because the property has no restrictions, you could have a mechanics shop or just change your own oil.  One overhead and 2 wall air compressor lines. Several 220 outlets.  It also has a bathroom, deep sink, washer and dryer, shared with apartments.  There is a washing station with water lines for dog washing or vehicle washing.  Floor drain under lift.
