Why We Love It
1. The Floor Plan. Unique, well thought out, perfectly executed; all thoughts that come to mind when you visit this home. Our Sellers didn't go shopping for ready-made blueprints, they had this home custom built to their own design so they could maximize the character of the property. The result? A house that lives like a ranch, hosts parties like a destination venue, and comfortably sleeps enough to keep The Brady Bunch happy.
2. The Setting. It almost feels like Mother Nature decided to sculpt this landscape around the home instead of the other way around. Set upon 4.2 acres, the house sits back off the road far enough to give you some privacy and the entire width of the back of the home was designed to take advantage of the views. Large windows and full glass doors dominate the rear wall to bring the outdoors in, while different living spaces --screened-in/open-air/covered/uncovered/upper/lower-- were created to bring the indoors out. Mother Nature spent a lot of time crafting this backdrop for you… take advantage of it.
3. The Quality. When you finally stop admiring the view, you can start admiring all of the details; hardwood floors, crown molding and detailed trim, built-in shelving, wrought iron rails, wide staircases, granite, the breathtaking cook top, six-panel doors, wainscoting, how the brick from the exterior was carried into the fireplace, etc.
What You Need To Know
If you're still reading this, it's probably safe to say that you're not from the off-the-rack crowd. Allow us to walk you through this tailor-made home…
First Floor: You and your guests will enter the home through the --more formal-- front door or the --more common-- side door. The front door leads you out of the foyer and into the wide open great room/kitchen/dining room space. With built-in shelving to the left, a wall of windows straight ahead, and a gourmet kitchen to the right… it's a sight to behold.
Hardwood floors carry throughout most of the space but a more comfortable carpet awaits your toes in the living area. Sliding glass doors open to the covered portion of the deck and French doors open to the large screened-in porch.
The utility side of the home is on the other side of the kitchen --half bath, laundry room, side door, and entrances to the separate 2 car garages-- while your private quarters await across the great room. Your owner's suite begins through a set of double doors, has private doors leading out to the deck, and wraps up with a spa-like bathroom. You have everything you need on one level allowing you to live the ranch-life most of the time.
Second Floor: A door sits at the top of the stairs helping provide: a. some doggone peace and quiet, b. energy savings thanks to the extra furnace.
Three bedrooms and a full bathroom sit around a center hallway/loft and all of the rooms are extremely large. The loft is even large enough to set up a teen-suite/living area/homework zone.
Basement: Welcome to one of the brightest and most wide open basements you're likely to see. An open staircase leads you down and empties into the pool table area. Off to the side of it is room for a table and the built-in bar. These 3 zones sit around a huge family room space that is anchored by both a wood burning fireplace and a wood burning stove. Be prepared to host every Ohio State Saturday and Super Bowl party with this setup.
Two more bedrooms/offices/craft rooms are adjacent to this space, as well as the 3rd full bathroom of the house.
Sliding glass doors in the family room area lead us out to a semi-cover patio at the base of the treeline.
Exterior: The exterior of the home is brick and stucco and it has upper decks and a lower patio… but I'm sure you're more interested in the grounds. The front portion of your 4.2 acres is mostly cleared and the driveway winds across a slightly rolling yard. The back of the property is heavily wooded and the home sits atop a slope that falls off until it reaches a creek. There is a small clearing at the bottom of the hill.
