Not just another beautiful, custom built, one owner home, this is a “Lifestyle” home! A lifestyle home offers unique features that help improve your daily quality of life & this home has them! Before even getting to the interior, outside you will enjoy over 1 acre of professionally landscaped, park like yard with large 26’x20′ deck, 22’x20′ brick paver patio, raised cedar garden beds with stone bases, a fire pit with stone bed, a compost area, mature trees & shrubs including a line of Arborvitae along the rear & east sides of the property for privacy & a line of pines on the west side, a newer fence has also been added to the East side of the rear yard, a second newer constructed (2019) garage with loft & heated floors, & a custom built chicken coop. If chickens are not your thing, the coop has power & can easily be converted to a child’s play house or storage/garden shed. To keep the park like setting, the seller has gone the extra step of disguising the second drive to the rear garage. This drive has been constructed with a large and small stone base and overlaid with an airplane grade mesh so grass may grow over. This allows for a solid surface without the need for an unsightly driveway going through the yard. Both the exterior of the home and the newer second garage have Hardie board cement siding and trim for long life. Roof on the home is approx. 8 years from new. Speaking of that second garage, no expense was spared here. This garage is approx 28′ x 32′ (est. 900 sq.ft.) has a gas fired, water boiler, in floor heating system, is fully insulated and finished, has 10′ wide x 10′ high insulated overhead doors with openers, perfect for camper/boat storage etc.., and a large loft. If you’re not blown away yet, wait until you step inside this 4 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath, home! Walking in you notice the entire home has beautiful hardwood flooring throughout. The living room has a floor to ceiling fireplace. Moving into the large kitchen you will see nothing but quality. Solid Cherry cabinets capped with crown modeling and finished off with a light rail, over and under cabinet lighting, soft close drawers, solid Cherry doors, double door pantry closet, granite counter tops, hand hammered copper sink, stainless steel Kitchenaid appliances including built in double ovens, slow cooker/warming drawer, cook top with custom hood, dishwasher and a newer Whirlpool stainless steel, french door refrigerator. The ample table space has a view to the rear yard with access to the deck and patio and offers a nice open flow from the kitchen into the family room. Also located on the main level is a laundry room & rear entry foyer from the attached garage. Moving to the upper level you will find a master suite with dual closets & double wide walk in shower in the master bath. A second full bath & three additional bedroom round out the upper level. The lower level has a rec. room finished with handmade doors & trim constructed out of 100 year old barn wood, a dry bar with separate circuit for a high end expresso machine, mini frig, a third full bath, & unfinished utility room complete with water softener and iron out purifier system.

Lastly, the cherry on top is location. The property is closely located to an apple orchard, & winery/restaurant.

While convenient to these amenities, you will be returning home to a peaceful sanctuary.
