Take the old idea of acreage (11.02 acres), build a large house on it (5,130 square feet), and give it modern features (Nana doors), and create an estate that commands a $3,200,000 price.
Start with the outdoor saloon. The bar is an old-fashioned idea. It’s really the counter to an impressive BBQ station that borders an outdoor kitchen and living room. Stay dry in the covered patio, and thank the skylights for letting the sun in and keeping the rain out.
A wall of windows and doors disappear to connect the outdoor and indoor dining areas. Fieldstone tiles span the dining room and the country kitchen. There’s enough room to prepare for large parties. A separate beverage fridge off to the side diverts some of the disruptive drink traffic out of the way of the chef.
The rustic feel returns with three large river rock fireplaces, the biggest of which is so impressive that they wrapped a balcony around it. Rough brick bathroom walls, stained wood cabinets, and a barn-door style closet door balance the country feel against refined fixtures, bathtub, and tile work. With four bedrooms and five bathrooms, there’s enough space for a large family. Good thing there are also two laundries.
Back outside are the accommodations for four-legged residents. A six stall barn and a series of pastures are ready for a small herd.
The other outdoor attraction is a large swimming pool that sits within sight of the outdoor saloon. Two different ways to get wet.
Managing such a large estate takes a lot of work, and attracts a lot of guests. There’s a separate house for either a manager or guests. With so much going on, maybe it makes sense to consider adding another.
