Description: This single family home was built in 2001 and is located on a corner lot facing The Ledges golf course in a gated community. There is 5,200 Sq. Ft. under roof with very open interior and exterior floor plans. There is an attached three car garage with 1005 sq. ft. bonus suite and additional kitchen. Outdoor living in style with over 805 sq. ft. of roofed outdoor living areas featured in a front porch, second floor front piazza, side lounging porch and back breezeway/colonnade. Plus, and outdoor sun patio and sitting area around the shaded turtle pond. There are no neighbors across the street allowing you to enjoy golfers playing two holes from your front porch, second floor piazza, indoor den or master suite. Looking over the golf course you have a beautiful mountain top view of Jones Valley farm, the downtown area of Huntsville and the Saturn rocket at the Space & Rocket Center. This vista really opens up during the winter. The corner lot gives you two one-way streets with a community green-way median of finely manicured gardens on the east side of the property. An alleyway on the west side gives you another buffer zone between the home and neighbors. The only bordering neighbor is in the rear of the property and buffered by the garage and 12 foot privacy hedges. I have seen few homes better situated on a lot. Facing slightly west of due north the sun rises and sets perfectly on the home. The back southwest side of the home is heavily wooded with mature trees that shade the home and back yard. There is always a cool sitting area no matter how hot the weather is. During late morning the sun hits the east side of the back yard creating a perfect area for the raised vegetable or herb garden. Another under valued bonus is the ability to enjoy views of three sides of this home when going or coming from the property. The master suite and garage are all on the first level with no steps. The bonus suite makes a perfect office suite or rental apartment. The open floor plan was designed for expansion. For investors wanting to increase heated and cooled space, or families needing more bedrooms. Three different areas offer expansion options: The second floor has two large areas the could be redesigned for new bed rooms and baths. The 27' x 18' Family Room and 15' x 25' Media Room are large open areas. A 15' x 22' open area above the Living Room offers expansion of 330 square feet for living space if needed. Interior highlights include 20 foot ceiling in the living room with wrap around balcony above. Two story stone fireplace with two mantels. Three interior columns and dome ceiling dining area. Woodwork includes antique recovered knotty heart pine flooring, three piece crown molding, 12" base and 8' interior doors. 11 foot ceilings on the first floor and 9 foot ceilings on the second. Marbled counter tops and to-the-ceiling marble back splashes in the kitchen. 18' x 50' fully decked attic storage area. A new 40 year roof was added in 2014. This fully bricked home has good bones. Highlighted by 6" exterior framed walls to provide extra structural and insulation characteristics, High tech subflooring and decking with water resistant properties, and low maintenance EIFS stucco soffit and eves. What I love about the home: I love my gated community, mountain living on a golf course, and being just one block from the country club and Crest Park. The view(s) are awesome! From the home you enjoy views of a wooded lot, golf course, mountain top view of the city and a community green way. But, just as important are the three views of the home you get as you approach and enter the home. I love the shade trees, shrubs and multiple bulb beds. The six different outdoor sitting areas to relax, and the way sun rises and set on the property. I love the huge rooms and first floor master. Have a question? Click here for contact information.
