Private retreat in a wooded canopy that backs up to open fields with creek and more woods in the farthest back of the lot. Sit out on the wrap around decks and watch nature or your own pets enjoy the yards. The home is quite unusual, custom built by the original owner. A dream home that came to life. The second owner knew right away that this would be perfect place for their needs. Unusual doesn't mean the same to everyone. Be sure you view the photos and read the description so you can see if this is the same perfect fit for your needs. The access is very discreet and left very au natural. The long narrow driveway, with pot holes, comes down past another home to open up to the sanctuary setting with metal 2 car carport and detached 2 car garage out front of the homesite. Beyond the driveway and parking, the house is sitting amongst very large trees and features wood decking on two levels. Upstairs the decking wraps around 3 sides of the home and there is access from various rooms to the deck. The upper deck is the main entrance to the home into the entry foyer. The foyer opens up to the cathedral ceilings in the great room with gas fireplace and built in bookcases. Or off the foyer you can enter the family room with gas woodstove and breakfast nook that is one side of the big kitchen. The kitchen has skylights, vaulted ceilings, center island cooking, double pantries and plenty of wood cabinets and granite countertops. From the kitchen you enter the dining room which adjoins the great room. In the rear on this main level are 2 generous bedrooms that share 1 full bath in the hallway. Staircase in the center of the home takes you down one level. On this level the size is the same and the room count similar. 2 bedrooms with full bath between them, den or office, great room with gas fireplace, a more formal room perfect as a game/card room, french doors walk out to the ground level and off of this level is the huge laundry room with full shower bath. Perfect for pet grooming or other types of business that would need a utility bath set up. Down another full staircase from this level is the rec room, utility room and huge storage area. You can walk out the steps to the back yard from here. The continuous gas hot water heater, the gas furnace and a wood stove back up system, are all in the storage room. Outside the decks have extra flat areas where there once was a hot tub, since removed and electric terminated and over the garage was a party area with lattice and strings of lights. Use your own imagination for your outdoor enjoyment of such a wonderful set up. The yards are not grassy around the home but not because of any reason than the previous owner had dogs. The yards are all natural and could be made to match new owners taste. For pets the fenced and gated areas are perfect to have your fur babies close to the house and yet free to roam. Down the back side of the property, the valley has more grass, marshy wetland up to the beautiful flowing creek. The property continues beyond the creek and up the hill into the treed back. Another community is over the property line and you can best view this from google maps. There is an old shed in the middle of the property and old fencing and "toys" in the yard. The local wildlife and domestic pets have thoroughly enjoyed the free roam of this property. You can decide for yourself if this is what you have wanted in your next home. If it is, don't wait! There are others just like you and the previous 2 owners who loved living here. Different good. Unlike anything else, good.
