The home (main residence) consists of 3,672 sq. ft. — 1,836 sq. ft. on the main level plus 1,836 sq. ft. in the finished fully exposed walkout basement. Both levels have plenty of large thermal windows that let in the light and frame the beautiful views. Built in 2003, the home was completely remodeled/updated in 2010.
The main floor includes a kitchen with top quality self-closing cabinets and new appliances, a dining room, and living room with a gas fireplace. The archway between the dining room and large living room is adorned with a beautiful plaster mural. The master bedroom is also on the main floor and features a walk-in closet, an exquisite master bath with double sinks, fully jetted tub and extra large shower. Sliding glass doors open off the master onto the deck.
The home is surrounded by a beautiful 360º wrap-round deck adorned with Brazilian Tigerwood flooring. Next to the kitchen under the roof overhang is a large area with a propane hook up for outdoor cooking . The lower level of the home has 2 bedrooms, a full bath, a large family room and a game room with pool table. The laundry room is also on this level. Two exterior doors and large windows open to the great outdoors.
The second structure (apartment/guest quarters) on the property was built in 2009 and houses an apartment, a shop area and a 3-car garage. The main floor of the apartment (816 sq. ft.) features an open concept from the first-class kitchen to the family room, and a bathroom/laundry room. There is one bedroom (320 sq. ft.) on the upper level. The hand-hewn pine board planks throughout the apartment add natural beauty to the warm western country living atmosphere.
The finished, oversized 3-car garage/shop (30’ x 80’) has a concrete floor with in-floor heat. There are three 10’x10’ and one 12’x12’ overhead doors and three walk-in doors.
The boiler, which supplies the in-floor heating system may be powered by either propane or wood. One could enjoy the best of both worlds — rural electric power now available on site could easily be converted to a propane-powered generator making the property completely independent from the grid.
The home and apartment both have beautiful tile floors throughout; the shop has a concrete floor — all are equipped with in-floor hot water heat. Domestic water is provided by a well on the property. A cistern services septic systems for both residences.
All furnishings are included in the sale of the property with the exception of the artwork. The two plaster murals in the main home — one above the archway leading into the living room and one above the stairway — are considered built-in artwork and stay with the home.
