Situated on a one-acre treed lot in the desirable community of Indian Hills, this 2-story gem is not your typical traditional floor plan. An extensive paved driveway leads you to this residence, which is not viewable from the street, making it the envy of the neighborhood! Upon entering the home, an inviting 2-story foyer awaits with wooden staircase and gleaming hardwood flooring, which extends throughout much of the main level. A private study offers French door access and a view of the front lawn, while the formal dining room details extensive millwork, including wainscoting and dentil crown molding. The center great room features a vaulted ceiling with towering walkway overlooking this space from the second level.You'll love the cozy stone hearth fireplace with gas or woodburning capabilities. The heart of the home is a wonderful second gathering space, which is open to the kitchen. This vaulted family room addition offers access to the multi-level expansive decking and affords views of the private lawn from all three sides. The space is incredibly versatile for both dining and seating area, and is accentuated with two floor-to-ceiling built-ins for displaying your collectables or favorite library of reading material. Definitely a fabulous space to curl up with a book! The gourmet kitchen is well appointed with an abundance of white cabinetry, center island with breakfast bar, planning desk, separate beverage station with undercounter refrigerator, granite countertops and full appliance package, which includes stainless steel refrigerator (new in 2022). Alfresco dining will be a must on that expansive deck, which overlooks the treed lawn and extended driveway pad, ideal for additional guest parking or shooting hoops! The primary suite is tucked away just beyond the guest powder room and features private bathroom with double bowl vanity, garden jetted tub, separate shower, and generous walk-in closet with built-in design. Atop the staircase landing, a bedroom to the left is quite spacious, offering a lounge/den area, as well as two closets. Two additional bedrooms are ample size, and one features a large walk-in closet. The hallway bathroom offers double bowl extended vanity which is separate from the water closet area with tub/shower combo. The lower level affords more living space, consisting of cozy family room with brick hearth fireplace, hobby/craft room or office with built-ins, another possible bedroom (closet but no immediate egress other than walkout via the garage), full bathroom and spacious laundry room. The oversized garage affords plenty of storage opportunity or workbench if desired. Improvements in recent years include installation of the irrigation system in front lawn, roof (2015), one of the two furnace/AC systems (2011) and some of the wood flooring refinished on the main level.
