Property Description

This breathtaking 7,000 sq ft French Provincial style home is characterized by balance, symmetrical proportions, and steep roofs. The architectural design combines beauty and elegance with rustic, country style features. This wonderful house is currently undertaking a total remodel. In late 2018, the home had a fire that mainly caused smoke damage. The house was taken down to the studs with new insulation, drywall, flooring, electrical, plumbing, and heating system installed, plus so much more. Currently the home’s interior painting is being finished utilizing natural warm tones, and will be followed by new luxury carpet installation. Tile floor on the first level is complete. The kitchen and baths are next on the agenda, with all cabinet, countertops, appliances, and plumbing fixtures ordered and ready for install. The home was built by current owners in 1997. This one-of-a-kind home is bright and spacious, designed for family living and room for just about any activity one desires. A state of the art kitchen is designed for those who love to cook and bake, but also perfect for gathering and conversation in what could be considered the heart of the home. Contiguous to the kitchen are wonderful living spaces, including a bright family/sun room, large living room, both with 18 foot ceilings, as well as formal dining room, laundry and ½ bath. The stately library and master bedroom suite complete the first level. The master bedroom comes with a large bathroom equipped with a soaking tub and shower, two spacious walk in closets, and a wonderful deck to enjoy the day’s first cup of coffee while taking in the wonderful view and wildlife. Take the curved staircase with ornate banister to the 2nd level, which offers wonderful views of the interior space below as well as the outside. 3 more spacious bedrooms (one with added bonus space over garage) and two baths are found on the 2nd level. Use the second stairwell down to the kitchen area and continue on to the stairwell to the lower level with walkout. Kick back in the Large family room with gorgeous gas fireplace complimented with stone and oak. This room opens into bright recreation rooms perfect for the family to enjoy activities such as pool, table tennis, foosball, etc. Larger than life work room area with garage door is perfect for storage and so many hobbies. Lower level also comes with ¾ bath and a ½ bathroom. The home is heated and cooled utilizing geo thermal with all new high end, efficient components. The lower level and first floor are kept warm with radiant in-floor heat, while the 2nd floor is heated with forced air. This home was built and remodeled drawing inspiration from nature. It is only fitting that nature and wildlife is so abundant on the 37 acres (m/l) the home graciously sits on. With park-like setting, there is plenty of yard space, prairie, and hardy woods to explore. Relax and entertain on front porch and/or large decks with unlimited vistas. A fun “above ground” pool awaits you. Additional storage with 30 x 40 shed strategically located on property. Call today to set up your own personal tour.
