Why We Love It
1. The Apartment. Multi-generational living has been a buzzword in real estate over the past few years as combining households has become a great solution for more and more people. This home will suit those needs perfectly because there is a full "apartment" in the basement. Beautifully finished, it has plush carpet in the large living room and bedrooms, and high-grade laminate floors in the dining and kitchen areas. The full bathroom has a laundry hookup as well. If you're looking to combine households or just like your guests to have some space for themselves... this lower level is the perfect solution.
2. Outdoor Style. This outdoor space is an entertainer's dream come true. There are multiple seating areas and an outdoor kitchen built around an inground pool as the center of attention. The biggest problem you'll have is deciding who to invite to your amazing pool parties (I would invite the ones who make the best side dishes). You can invite quite a few people because your seating areas include deck tiers off the great room, owner's suite, and in front of the kitchen, bar seating at the outdoor kitchen, patio space under the pergola, and room for chairs around the pool. After a day full of swimming and grilling, start a fire in the fire pit and let the kids roast marshmallows until it's time for bed. Oh... I forgot to mention the Olympic size pool heater that will heat the pool in a few hours so you can use the pool April-November!
3. Bells and Whistles. Ever wonder what the personal residence of a custom homebuilder looks like? Wonder no more. The original owner of this home was a custom builder and he built this home for himself. No feature went without careful consideration... an executive paver driveway/entryway, a dual side stone fireplace between the dining room and great room, an owner's suite with its own fireplace and deck area, both bedrooms upstairs have private bathrooms, a loft oozing with architectural interest, and more. This is no cookie cutter house, it has all the bells and whistles you could ask for.
What You Need To Know
Situated on 1.4 acres near the end of a no outlet street, this executive home grabs your attention as soon as you pull up. Just 30 minutes south of downtown Columbus, this home is perfect for those who want luxury and breathing room.
The long driveway starts with asphalt, but transitions to pavers that compliment the stone and stucco of the home as you approach the three car garage and the driveway's (convenient) turnaround area.
Main Level: This is the perfect home for those who like to host, whether it is a pool party in the summer or a game night in the winter. When you walk in, you'll love the "gray-washed" look of the floors. Combined with the different ledges and peeks in the ceilings and the modern color palette, it gives this home a really cool feel.
To your immediate left is a large space that is currently used as an office, but would also make a great sitting room.
To your right is the dining room that shares a dual-sided fireplace with the great room. Large windows here will provide natural light and great views for your dinner guests.
On the great room side of the fireplace, you'll love the built-in bookshelves on each side of the stone hearth. The back wall of the home is lined with windows that overlook the beautiful backyard, including the full pane doors from this room out to the deck.
The attention-grabbing architecture of the kitchen has been accentuated even more by a fun, lime green, paint on the transition wall. This chef's kitchen is complete with beautiful granite counters, tall white cabinets, and an island with cooktop. There is room for an eat-in table with a GREAT view of the backyard and if you use the nearby built-in desk area as a coffee station, it will probably become your favorite place to sit in the mornings.
Tucked away in the other back corner of the home is the amazing owner's suite. The floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace makes a huge statement as soon as you step into your private quarters. Combined with the hardwood floors, deep tray ceiling, and direct access to the deck, there may be days where you decide not to come out of your quiet little corner. You'll find two closets on your way to your master bath that features ceramic tile, a soaking tub, stand alone shower, and tons of counter space that includes a vanity area.
A laundry room and powder room are also found on this level.
Upper Level: When you go up the stairs, you will again notice that this is no cookie cutter home because you get a great view of the "skyline" of the first floor. Atop the stairs, you'll find a nice loft that will serve as a great common area for those that sleep up here. While you are in the loft, you can’t miss the unique circle window that gives you a view of the front yard.
Two bedrooms are located up here. Both are spacious and they each have their own full bathrooms!
Lower Level: I talked about this level in depth above but I want to reiterate how great it is! If you're combining households, the ability to separate at times will be invaluable. But if you're not in need of an "apartment", you'll still find a use of this level as rec room with individual spaces for a craft room, shop, etc.
I should also mention the home's $5,000 Kinetico water system that includes reverse osmosis; this makes your water better than bottled water!
Outside: The amazing 1.4 acre lot is lined with mature trees to give the home a very private and secluded feel. The home sits back off the road, so there is a large front yard.
I really like the design of the backyard; the fenced pool area provides plenty of living space but there is still a lot of yard beyond the fence. There is a shed there as well that even has electric.
Location: Just steps from the banks of Deer Creek, this peaceful location is just 5 minutes from the heart of Mount Sterling, 20 minutes from the new Mount Carmel Hospital in Grove City, and 30 minutes from downtown Columbus!
