Why We Love It
1. Kitchen. The kitchen has beautiful Corian counter tops, stainless steel appliances, tons of counter and cabinet space. It is large enough that if you need a hand while cooking dinner, there is plenty of space, but it is also private enough that your guests don’t have to watch you in action as you throw yourself into a panic attic trying to make everything perfect; pot roast... tender, mashed potatoes... no lumps, and don’t burn the rolls! You know how much pressure this is, right???!!! Your guests can relax and chat in that awesome living room... just give them a topic and get them out of your way because it can be nerve racking enough trying to put a meal together. Once it’s done, wipe the sweat off your brow, take a deep breath, reapply your lipstick... and viola… dinner is served. Bon appetit! Your guests will have no idea that you had your finger ready to dial Zamarelli's! There is plenty of space to eat; the formal dining room and the informal eating space are both located off the kitchen. The informal space even has a bay window that overlooks the backyard.
2. Briarwood Hills. Whether it's because of the differing architectural designs of each custom-built home, the mature trees, or the neighbors who take pride in their homes... Briarwood Hills has remained one of Grove City’s upscale neighborhoods for many years. Every home has its own individual place in the neighborhood and it's strategically placed directly across the street from Grove City High School and next to Grove City Christian School so you will be able to walk to Friday Night Football. You are also centrally located to Stringtown Rd (your main shopping hub), Downtown Grove City (to shop local), and to I-71 to get you to Downtown Columbus in minutes.
3. Owner's Suite. This is the reason you work so hard; to have a space like this to call your own. There is room enough to sleep, relax, hide... whatever you need. Turn on the gas fireplace, grab a book and your favorite bottle of wine, and leave the cares of the world at the door. You even have your own private entrance to the rear deck. Your bathroom suite has a soaking Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, dual vanities, and an enormous walk-in closet. It is situated away from the other bedrooms to give you privacy from the rest of the bedrooms.
What You Need To Know
The market typically begs for sprawling ranches like this and with 2,545 square feet, space will not be a concern here. It offers 4 large bedrooms and 2 ½ baths but this isn’t your cookie cutter house because while ranch homes with 4 bedrooms are pretty rare... ranch homes with 4 rather large bedrooms, plus a den, and a dining room are as rare as unicorns. This home is a unicorn.
The brick exterior has lovely architectural dimensions and roof peaks and is situated on a large lot at the corner of Gershwin and Barnwood. This is the perfect time of year to see the spring blossoms the property has to offer because there are several trees in the yard that are absolutely beautiful! A long manicured walkway leads you to the covered porch of the front door.
When you walk in, you will notice light neutral flooring throughout the house. This house is really clean and is a blank canvas to add your colors of choice. To your right is a large dining room that has access from the entryway and the kitchen. Straight ahead is this AMAZING great room. The focal point of this room is the two story brick fireplace that cascades from the ceiling to the floor. The triangle windows on each side of the fireplace and the decorative beams give a unique architectural element to the room. When combined with the sliding glass doors on each side of the fireplace, you get an abundance of natural light in the room.
Adjacent to the great room is the den with french doors, providing a quiet area to get all the items off your to-do list checked off.
The left wing of the house is where 3 of the large bedrooms and one of the full bathrooms live.
The right wing of the house is where you will find the kitchen, eating areas, first floor laundry, and your owner's suite.
The home has a large unfinished basement that could easily be finished if you find you need more living space. There are even 2 entrances from the garage into the home (one to the mud room, one to the basement) which adds convenience, especially if someone comes in covered in dust or dirt.
The backyard has a huge two tiered deck (complete with built in benches) and a completely fenced-in yard to keep what you want in, and what you don’t want out. Mature trees add to the privacy back there.
