Why We Love It

1. Floor Plan

This floor plan gives you the best of both worlds; an open concept for entertaining and intimate spaces for a little privacy. If dinner parties are your thing, you'll love how the formal dining room is paired away with the formal living room... while the expansive great room is completely open to the kitchen for your casual gatherings.

2. Bonus Room

I absolutely love this flex space because it's nice to have it somewhere other than the basement. It's a huge room that could become the location of your home theater, gaming room, or even a fifth bedroom. If the bedroom is what you're after, I want to warn you that you will likely have a fight on your hands to see who will get it!

3. Yard

I must say, I personally love living in a neighborhood because my kids can ride bikes with their friends and we can gather with our neighbors on Buckeye Saturdays. But I'll admit that what I don’t like about being in a neighborhood is looking out my back door and seeing a line of houses. Once again, providing the best of both worlds, this Grand Oaks home offers beautiful views with a little peace and quiet because the backyard abuts to a walking path and treeline.

4. Home Office

With the prospect of working from home becoming so common, there has never been a more important time to have a private home office. This one is perfectly tucked into the front corner of the home and it has French doors for privacy.

What You Need To Know

Just minutes from Polaris in the Olentangy school district, this home is located in the Grand Oak neighborhood of Galena. Take just one drive through the neighborhood and you'll know it's the perfect name!

The impressive, two-story brick facade makes a statement as you approach. Don’t worry, the perfectly manicured beds you see will be easy to maintain; most are perennials.

As you pull into the driveway, you'll take note of the three-car garage. I know for certain that once you live with a three-car garage, it's hard to live without it ever again.

First Floor

When you enter the home, you arrive in a two-story foyer.

The home office - with French doors - is on your left.

The formal living room is to your right. Accented with crown molding, this space has an intimate and cozy feel to it.

The living room leads into the formal dining room, where a tray ceiling and updated chandelier add a touch of character to the room. I love that this room has no direct access from the hallway.

The kitchen is in the back of the home. Crisp white cabinets, light Corian counters, and stainless steel appliances make this space feel bright and cheery. With plenty of cabinets, counter space, and a large pantry, there is a place for everything.

The kitchen shares a large open space with a casual eat-in nook and a large great room.

The great room features a few windows bringing in natural light, a small vaulted section of ceiling for architectural interest, and a gas fireplace with a nice black and white contrast to it.

If you like to entertain, this space is perfect. I imagine friends gathering around the center island, while someone plays cards at one of the tables, and others watch a game on the TV. Then, once the crowds leave, you turn on the gas fireplace and relax for a bit before heading to bed.

Second Floor

Upstairs, there are four large bedrooms, two full bathrooms, plus a huge bonus room that could serve as a fifth bedroom or an upstairs rec room.

Each bedroom has a ceiling fan and your owner's suite has dual closets, one of which is a walk-in.

The shared bath has nice flooring and surround, while your private bath has a huge soaking tub, double vanity, and a stand-alone shower.


The backyard is amazing.

Plan your perfect summer evenings with some kabobs on the grill, dining on the deck/patio, then a relaxing walk at dusk on the path right behind your yard.

With the tree line being so close, I am sure you will have some cute animal neighbors as well!
