Property Description

Talk about your own personal sanctuary! This home sits on 2 wooded lots equaling 1.8 acres (164' x 300')! A creek runs across the whole property! The southern charm facade boasts an all brick custom designed and built home. Walk into a vaulted ceiling entryway with a picture-perfect stairway which opens into a charming sitting area with a coffered ceiling and gas fireplace welcoming you in. Next, you will enter the spacious great room with a custom-designed cherry wood entertainment center that offers a ton of storage. A wall of custom Pella sliders provides a year-round view of woods behind. So peaceful! The open concept kitchen is an entertainer's dream! Cherry cabinets, granite countertops, SS appliances, double ovens, and a Dacor cooktop on the huge island. There is plenty of room for a good size dinette table as well as breakfast stools at the island. Family and friends will love congregating in this space! For more formal times the elegant dining room will provide just the right atmosphere. Flex space with a walk-in closet could be a private home office or just as easily a guest bedroom. A full bath is adjacent. A large laundry room with plenty of storage and an elevator to the second floor is right off the kitchen. Upstairs you will find 2 ensuite bedrooms and a large loft area. Perfect for another office, virtual learning or hang out space for the kids. The owner's suite is indeed grand! The bathroom is gigantic with cherry cabinets and a spa tub. The custom-designed walk-in closet is to die for! The construction of this home is top-notch and has all 2"x 6" walls and a concrete flexicore subfloor on the first level. Pella windows throughout, a central vac system, and exterior sprinkler system. This home was designed with the preservation of the topography in mind. It was very creatively engineered to allow the natural flow of the creek to remain as is. Because of existing wetlands and the creek the property is considered a floodplain. The creek is mostly a dry bed but does handle overflow during heavy rains. You will need flood insurance if financed, but the way the engineering was done it should be very reasonable, only about $300 a year. All living areas are above the flood level. To make up for not having a basement there is a huge storage room with access from the owner's suite and a staircase from the 5 car heated garage. There is also a 2,000 sq. ft. attic with plywood floors above the storage room. From the wooded property to the spacious floor plan and the upgraded construction you will not find a better value anywhere! Walk to the park, train, downtown & schools.
