Short sale stunner. This 2008 custom built Craftsman home on 25.5 private acres is offered at an incredible price. From the moment you step into the two story foyer, the quality throughout will be obvious. Notice the custom trim package - with detailed crown molding, beamed ceilings, and tall windows with transoms above. Gleaming wood floors flow throughout the main level. The 3855sf home has 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, plus a 2400sf semi-finished daylight basement.
A spacious dining room sits just off the foyer - note the beautiful ceiling and wall trim. Ahead is the living room with a wall of windows overlooking your private woods. The masonry stacked stone fireplace will keep you cozy in the winter months. Beamed ceilings and a built-in media cabinet complete the look. Adjoining the living room is a breakfast room surrounded by windows, and an incredible kitchen. The gleaming red lacquer cabinets topped by rich granite countertops are stunning. You’ll enjoy preparing meals with the Electrolux Icon wall oven - combination microwave and grill on top, with a convection oven below. The 5 burner gas cooktop has a high-efficiency down-draft vent. The super quiet dishwasher is also Electrolux, and blends in nicely with the custom cabinet face. The extra-large refrigerator/freezer is by Northland - maker of the Sub-Zero line. Around the corner are two pantry closets, and an extra- large laundry room. The garage is conveniently located just steps away. Tucked privately away on the other side of the home is an elegant master suite with wood floors and direct access to the back deck. The master bath has beautiful cabinetry with granite countertops, a deep soaking tub surrounded by tiles, and a large tiled shower. The master closet is spacious. There is a second bedroom on this level, with a full bath. The back deck features tile floors and custom wood railing with iron rails.
Upstairs you’ll find three additional bedrooms - two share a jack and jill bathroom with individual vanities with granite countertops and large walk-in closets. The third bedroom has a private bath. Also upstairs is a large playroom/home office, with views to the lower level from a small balconey.
Downstairs is a world just waiting for your finishing touches. The daylight basement has been studded and drywalled, and a full bath is partially installed. There is a workshop room lined with T&G siding. The concrete patio would make an excellent spot for your outdoor kitchen! The level backyard has room to add a pool for your family’s enjoyment.
The home sits back comfortably off the road, with three board fencing lining the road front. The 25.5 acres are mainly wooded, with trails winding throughout.
