Why We Love It
1. City Home vs. Country Home. Want to live in the country but don't want to leave the city? This is about as close as you'll get. Keep modern conveniences like public water, GenerLink power backup, 2 x 6 construction, dual-zone heating/cooling, 9′ ceilings, and custom trim work… but enjoy the benefits of your country setting. Start a vegetable garden or water your landscape every day because your exterior spigots are fed by a well, fall asleep to the sounds of peep frogs and awaken to the serenading of birds, and don't worry about disturbing the neighbors when your cookout runs a little late into the night.
2. Sophisticated Home vs. Fun Home. Confidently invite guests over knowing that they'll be impressed with what a fine, sophisticated adult you've become when they see the high end finishes of your main floor. Carrara marble in the custom built fireplace, Frank Lloyd Wright inspired Kitchen Craft cabinetry, and Anderson doors and windows. But when they leave, your inner-child can go wild in the two huge rec spaces. Upstairs is home to a bonus room with vaulted ceilings and windows that create great cross breeze. This is a perfect game or theater room. The lower level has also been finished to create another huge flex space and even has a rough-in for a full bathroom. This could be another family room or play zone.
3. The Owner's Suite. Your private suite will become your favorite hideaway. The bedroom is spacious and features a stepped tray ceiling and triple-wide windows that look out over a scenic backdrop. The bathroom has a huge walk-in closet and a bath tub you won't soon forget. Anyone who says men can't enjoy a bubble bath has never soaked beneath this chandelier and watched the moon pass through the night sky. Not manly enough you say? Just add a toy boat. Boom.
What You Need To Know
This home was custom built in 1999 and designed with the idea of bringing a city mindset out into a country setting. Set upon 1.86 acres in Ashville, we think they hit the nail on the head.
First Floor: You step into a beautiful 2-story foyer with a formal dining room to the left and a den with built in shelving to the right. Hardwood floors carry you throughout the entire level creating a comfortable flow.
As you move past the entry powder room, you enter the great room. Where do you look first? That stunning fireplace or the stunning views through the dual French doors? We told you about the fireplace earlier so let's go right to the doors. Both sets lead to the paver patio and in order to create more usable space inside, the doors swing outward.
Following the trend of open concept living, the great room is open to the eat-in kitchen. We told you about the Kitchen Craft cabinetry but let us also point out the solid surface counters, tile back splash, and built in wine rack too.
Second Floor: When you arrive at the top of the stairs, you can either choose to head right into the bonus room or left to the sleeping quarters.
The bonus room is my personal favorite room in the home. The vaulted ceiling combine with the large dormer to create some great angles, the ceiling fans combine with the windows to create a great cross breeze, and the room is so wide open that you could probably run some full court Nerf basketball games up here. And when your game is over, just toss your sweaty jersey into the wash because the laundry room is located here too.
Down the hallway you'll come to 2 guest rooms, a full bathroom, a railing open to the foyer, and the beautiful owner's suite we told you about earlier.
Basement: The quality materials even carry down to the basement. Berber carpet and solid wood, 6-panels doors aren't too good for your lower level. As mentioned earlier, this space is huge and features a rough-in for another full bathroom. Two sets of lights have been installed… one set to light the entire space and one set on dimmers to create a better atmosphere for anyone thinking of bringing in a home theater.
Exterior: The brick and cement board siding help keep your exterior maintenance at a minimum. The side load garage has a concrete pad large enough for extra parking and the exterior spigots run off the well so you can save on your water bill.
Location: You're far enough out to let life slow down a bit, but still within a 30 minute drive to downtown Columbus and just a 10-15 bike ride to Slate Run Metro Park.
