We all do it... we make a mental checklist of items that HAVE TO BE in our next home. All of our “must-have” details are different, but the major items are pretty consistent. This house will have you checking boxes left and right: front porch ✔ hardwood floors ✔ gas fireplace ✔ 42” cabinets ✔ granite countertops ✔ black stainless steel appliances ✔ first-floor laundry ✔ finished basement with half bath ✔ loft space ✔ paver patio ✔ 3-car garage ✔
This basement is the perfect spot to have a few friends over to watch the big game; just relax on your large sectional sofa and fire up your huge projector screen and you are ready to cheer on your favorite team (Go Bucks!). But this basement doesn't stop there... there is a second room perfect for a foosball, billiards, or for all the kids to run around play with their toys. You don't even have to race up the stairs during commercials for a restroom break because this basement offers you a half bath as well.
Behind this home’s nice-sized backyard is a community green space; perfect for a quick game of football or for playing fetch with the dog. The open space means you don’t have backyard neighbors directly behind you or to one side (there is also space with a gazebo between you and your western neighbor).
This home is located in the popular Fieldstone neighborhood, in the city of Blacklick, and feeds into the Gahanna Jefferson school system. The neighborhood is popular for its proximity to Gahanna as well as the abundance of open green space and walking paths that span the community.
First Floor: As you step in from the cozy front porch, you are greeted with fresh neutral paint that spans the entire first floor.
The home opens to a 2-story living room that is bathed in natural light from the large front windows in the two dormers above [an architectural feature that I ♥️].
Hardwood floors flow into the formal dining room that has an updated chandelier which will complement any style of furniture.
From the dining room, the hardwoods continue into the large eat-in kitchen. Updates in the kitchen include 42” cabinets, subway tile backsplash, granite countertops, and black stainless steel appliances.
Off the kitchen is the cozy family room with a gas fireplace, the perfect spot for winding down after a long day.
The first floor finishes off with a laundry room and powder room.
Second Floor: Upstairs, we have three bedrooms, two full baths, and a loft.
Your owner's suite includes a large walk-in closet, vaulted ceilings, and a private bathroom with a jetted tub, free-standing shower, and double vanity.
The other two bedrooms up here share the other full bathroom.
A large loft finishes off the upstairs. This space would be great for an office or it could easily be closed off for a fourth bedroom if needed.
Basement: Notice I didn't say the loft could be used for an additional TV space or playroom, because those can be found in the finished basement. The basement gives you another half bath and two large, versatile rooms.
The homeowners have set one of the rooms up as a theatre room and the other makes the perfect playroom or exercise room.
There is even a “secret hideout” under the stairs. It's the perfect spot for a bean bag to make a little reading nook or a spot to but a dog bed for your fur baby!
Exterior: In the backyard, you'll find a paver patio that looks out onto the large lawn. The yard looks even bigger because of the community green space... but don't worry because someone else will be mowing all of that extra land.
As you're pulling away, don’t forget to notice the all-important three car garage. With all of the bikes, mowers, and extra equipment nowadays, that has become a must-have for many homeowners.
