Description: Peace, serenity, & SOLITUDE. This gorgeous, spacious rustic home offers wildlife, mountain views, trees galore, & a 5 car heated garage w/ loft! Nestled in the trees, this 9.88 +/- acre treed property offers the perfect private oasis for you to get away from it all. Step inside, and you are greeted by rich, 'first cut' fir wood floors, 10' ceilings, and a welcoming ambience that says 'Welcome HOME.' The large living room is warmed by a cozy wood stove fireplace & rock feature wall. The kitchen is a gourmet's delight, boasting a gas stove, SS appliances, spectacular granite counters, tons of cabinets and counter space, & a convenient movable island for entertaining! A bright breakfast nook/casual dining space is just off the kitchen, while a large dining rm is next to the living rm for more formal gatherings. A family rm with a cherry wood built-in feature wall & gas fireplace is the ideal spot to wind down, relax, and watch a show. A large mud rm, 3pc bath & laundry area wrap up the main flr. Upstairs, you will find a grand Master suite, with huge vaults, a separate sitting area, gorgeous views, and a lovely ensuite. 2 Additional roomy bedrooms, each with their own unique view, a 4 pce bath and an office/den round out this level. Outside, a wrap around deck invites you to sit and enjoy nature, and take in everything this property has to offer. The 5 car detached garage features overhead radiant gas heaters, 2 air filtration systems, 220V power, and has a full length loft above that is great for a hobby or craft area, or extra storage. Many improvements have been made in recent years, including a new furnace, new sump pump, new pressure tank & motor for pump, new water softener, reverse osmosis system, septic distribution redone approx. 2 years ago, new drainage culverts, new toilets, a new shower, new door, and some new windows. The 5 GPM well feeds a 500 gal. cistern to ensure a steady supply of water, which is tested annually. A generator will keep things powered in the event of electrical power loss, and 2 greenhouses provide the gardener in you a place to grow your own veggies. A metal 'snow roof' is fabulous in the winter time, and there is high speed internet available via satellite (fast enough to stream movies!). The inviting feel of this home will inspire you! Year round home or supreme getaway - you choose - ideal for both! Pavement all the way right to the driveway, and cell phone service is available. Don't wait - it's calling you!
