Create a lifetime of memories in this beautiful 5 bedroom house sitting on a cul-de-sac with very little drive-by traffic in a diverse and active neighborhood. Although this house is in the middle of town and close to all of Columbia's amenities and walking distance of elementary school or grocery stores, you will feel you have a rural life as this lot backs up to Twin Lakes Park and is extremely private. Inside you will enjoy the gracious transitional feel, top-of-the-line kitchen, and enormous master suite.
As you walk through the front door you find yourself welcomed by a stunning two-story foyer with tons of windows for natural light, gleaming hardwood that is carried throughout the first floor, ivory millwork and moldings, and a large chandelier crowned with a medallion.
Directly to your left you see the formal dining room complete with bay window, crown molding, wainscoting, recessed lighting, pocket door to the kitchen, and chandelier with medallion that mirrors the one from the foyer. You will notice the size of the dining room offers enough space to fit a grand dining table in the center perfect for hosting a holiday meal or dinner party with friends and colleagues.
To your right is a set of French doors that opens to a room perfect for a home office or study that has recessed lighting and the same crown molding from the dining room. On the adjacent wall you notice a set of matching French doors that provide access to the living room.
Walking forward down the hall you will pass the grand staircase on your left and a coat closet on the right and find yourself in the living room. You'll notice access to the deck along with the wall of windows overlooking the back deck and woods, as well as providing you with tons of light creating an open feeling to the outside. Looking right you will notice the elegant fireplace and mantle as a great focal point of the room welcoming everyone to sit around and enjoy time together.
To your left is a throughway into a spectacular top-of-the-line kitchen with a huge center island, granite counters, and stainless backsplash and appliances including GE Monogram gas range and a Sub-Zero refrigerator.
Looking around you notice the built in hutch perfect for displaying all your dinnerware, and Tiffany style lighting over the table in the bay window breakfast area. From the breakfast area you have access to the two-tier deck where you can retreat to enjoy the treehouse views and watch deer, turkey, or other wildlife below.
Just beyond the kitchen and breakfast area are French doors that open to a sun porch with tons of windows, back access to the garage, or access to the decks where you can head down the stairs to find a lower level sun porch that matches the upper. This quaint sitting area is a perfect interior option to sit and enjoy the views without having to endure the outside climate on the deck.
From the breakfast area you are also free to access the entry area to the two car garage, entry closet, or laundry room with utility sink, and plenty of cupboard and counter space.
Centralized in the kitchen you have a small hall area with access to the dining room, stairs to the lower level and the main level bathroom featuring crown molding, checkered tile floor, black sink and toilet, and gold finishes.
Traveling upstairs from the foyer you have a hallway with the same hardwood from the main level.
Heading right from the top of the stairs is your main full bathroom and 2 bedrooms. The bathroom features a single vanity with expansive counter space, skylight for bright natural light and a linen closet. The two bedrooms both contain plush carpeting and fan and light kit with the back bedroom featuring large windows to enjoy the wooded view.
Moving left from the top of the stairs you have a hall closet as well as another bedroom featuring a walk in closet, plush carpeting, fan and light kit and two windows looking out to the front yard.
Just beyond the bedroom is the entry to the enormous master suite that is perfect for you to retreat from the world. As you open the French doors you will be amazed by the amount of space that is offered. To your left is a grand bathroom with large Whirlpool tub, skylights, double vanity and more-than-ample walk-in closet.
The bedroom features a wall of windows providing a gorgeous view of the woods, trey ceiling with recessed lighting and ceiling fan, plush carpet, and an oversized separate sitting room.
Journey to the lower level of the house and you find an entry with French doors that you can close off to keep noise levels down. Pass through the doors and find a large family room with a fireplace, wet bar, and access to the lower and upper deck.
Head down the hallway and you find a full bathroom with tile flooring, full shower, and single vanity.
Next to the bathroom is a fifth bedroom a large walk in cedar closet for storage. Across the hallway is access to a bonus room that is perfect for a home gym or play room for the kids. Beyond the bonus room is an excavated garage that will provide you more-than-enough storage and allows for plenty of hobby space as well.
