Large Custom Home On Well-Manicured Acreage With Income


The Home – Pride of ownership shines in this 5 bedroom 3 and ½ bath home. This home makes its statement as you approach the front entry, a towering, bold two-story brick entrance that builds excitement to see what is through the front door. Cathedral ceilings soar as you take in the custom woodwork and heated floors. A large kitchen with high-end appliances, granite tops and oak cabinets would make any chef feel at home. The family room provides an open feeling and boasts beautiful views of the grounds. The family room has one of the two large granite fireplaces in the home. A main level master suite provides a large walk-in closet, amazing views and a full custom bath with walk-in shower. To ensure every box is checked, the master also has a large jacuzzi tub. The main floor study has access to the screened-in deck. A perfect spot for morning coffee or evening meals spent looking over the pond and pasture watching the deer, turkey, squirrels, ducks, geese, and the many other species of wildlife that call this property home. The second level has four additional bedrooms with a full bath. Cedar-lined closets and a balcony deck give this level a full list of amenities all to its own. The lower level is complete with a full kitchen, bath, laundry, family room and walkout. The second custom granite fireplace is in this lower level family room. This area is perfect for guests or extended family to spend time and have their own space. Adjacent to the family room is a large storage area with nearly 1,000 sq feet of storage space. The two geothermal units and floor heating system is in this area. The additional space is great storage or could become playrooms, additional guest rooms, workout area, or a great game room. The home is well planned for housing a large family. All the rooms are big enough for family fun, and the house is big enough for everyone to have their own space. This one is a must-see to appreciate the amount of custom work and care that has been devoted to this home.

The Land – The gated entrance leads you to a long driveway adorned along the sides by trees and streetlights. The tillable acreage sits in front of the house and provides a nice buffer. Past the home sits the estate grounds. Approximately 5 acres of well-manicured lawn meanders around trees and along the pond. The white pines are large and provide a great windbreak. Walnuts and oaks feed the deer, turkeys, and squirrels. Fruit trees, grapevines, blackberries, and raspberries all call this property home. The outbuildings can hold collections of all types or provide a great place to start a business. The largest building has concrete flooring and is fully wired to support the heated woodshop. A full lean-to provides even more storage for tools and equipment. The adjacent building has a gravel and dirt floor. This building has been used and outfitted with an area for animals. The perfect spot for goats, or a calf for the family. A chicken coop is still present and usable for the new owners. The home is on city water, but there is a well that could be used to water animals and crops. The location of this property is unique with its proximity to town and yet holds an amazing rural feel. This home could serve as a homesteader or micro farmer's paradise. All the necessary items are present. On the west side of the property is the timber area, creek and set aside acres. Approximately 5 acres has been out of production for ten years. This area could now qualify as organic status and could be certified to grow organic crops or produce. With approximately 19 acres of production crops and 5 +/- acres of expired set aside land, the opportunities for unique agriculture uses are endless.
