Enjoy the rustic style of this true log home, combined with modern updates done smartly over time. Owned by just one family for it's 37 years, pride of ownership abounds. The oversized standalone garage with guest suite above, acreage, and commercial/residential zoning provide a multitude of uses.
First Floor: The sweeping blacktop driveway weaves back to the open area and strikingly tidy cabin with garage. A large front porch welcomes guests to the front door and inside to the tiled foyer with full closet and mudroom area. A tiled powder room is set privately to the left side, and straight ahead is the impressive kitchen. Professionally designed with custom grey cabinetry, this space was well-thought out for both the chef and the diner. Upgraded appliances include a 48” JennAir® gas range with 4-burners and a 2-burner gas grill with commercial stainless hood above, and JennAir® electric double wall ovens. The counter space is almost as abundant as the storage space with pantry cabinet, slide-outs, and a large island with seating and more cabinetry. Exposed logs overhead hold pendant lighting and a large patio door offers easy access to the deck for grilling and alfresco meals, and allows a view of the property from the table.
The open living room is warm and comfortable with exposed log walls and beams overhead. It’s light and bright with multi-dimensional light from the glass on all three walls. The space is as versatile as the repurposed antique mantle is decorative, and features new laminate flooring and another patio door to the backyard that provides a wonderful cross breeze, plus great traffic flow when entertaining.
Second Floor: Up the double-sided central staircase with wood treads, you’ll find three bedrooms all with pine flooring and walls (no carpet!) and ceiling fans. The largest room has two closets. The full bathroom was modernized with tile flooring, vanity and medicine cabinet, a 5’ walk-in shower with glass doors and a beautiful oversized jetted tub.
Basement: Built on a poured concrete full foundation, one side of the basement is finished with carpeting, sheetrock walls, wood trim, and a gas stove with tile surround, plus a Bilco door exit. The opposite side of the basement is unfinished and houses the washer/dryer, gas-fired forced-air furnace, gas water heater, water softener and offers plenty of storage space.
Garage: Bring on the projects and toys! This standalone 30’ x 34’ garage has two eight-foot overhead doors with remotes, a 100 amp panel with a 220 v outlet perfect for charging an electric vehicle, or to run equipment. Insulated, sheetrocked, and painted with tall ceilings, there’s ample space to do much more than park here!
