For $1,398,000 you can buy a manor of a house that has as much going on outside as inside. Take your pick; but you’ll probably want to spend time in both.
Start with the living room because that’s what most tours do, even if that isn’t the room you’ll spend the most time in. The 3,367 square foot house is reminiscent of a Craftsman, though much larger. Because it was built in 2001, expect gas fireplaces wrapped by false stone chimneys, recessed lighting, and columnar touches in the pillars and framing.
The kitchen is a mix of country and modern, stainless steel and natural wood cabinets that is set aside to keep it out of the traffic flow, and to keep the traffic flow out of the way of the cook.
Take most of the living room and the kitchen, put them outside and find a 1,238 square foot covered space that includes another gas fireplace, a gas grilling station, another dining room, and heaters in the ceiling to augment the fireplace. Spread out and relax, or use it as an escape if the folks indoors get too noisy.
It is hard to keep track of the five bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms because they are divided into two buildings, the main house and a separate guest house. Yet another escape, or a convenient option for more family or assistants.
Assistants might be a good idea to help maintain the 2.41 acre lot. Everything is in order: cobblestone walkways, a lawn large enough for games, ornamental gardens, and a series of raised beds, all surrounded by hedges and greenbelts that provide privacy.
Extend your tour and find a mirrored gym, a workshop, and more outbuildings. Take your time; there’s lots to see.
