Country home in The Galena Territory custom built by premier builder Galena Hillside Homes and thoughtfully designed by architect Marty Johnson. This home is a functional work of art that has been well maintained and lightly lived in. The front wall made of Galena Limestone is exposed on the inside, something normally seen in historic homes, adding warmth and character. The incredible stone combined with vaulted ceilings, magnificent wood beams, and hand-scraped hickory floors allows this grand home to not overwhelm. Open concept main floor with sunken living room and sitting area with a stone fireplace (see if you can find the fossils!).  The welcoming kitchen has custom Bader cabinets and granite countertops. Enjoy the wildlife sanctuary outside on the pergola-covered flagstone patio or from the oversized screened-in porch with glass windows for the winter. Rounding out the main floor is a powder room, laundry room, and master bedroom with two walk-in closets, and large master bathroom with double sinks, a separate tile shower, and a whirlpool tub. Walking upstairs to the lofted hallway, there are three more generous bedrooms and an office with a bathroom conveniently located between the rooms at each end of the home. The basement has been finished with a family room, workout room, full bathroom, and another bedroom. Multiple storage closets in the basement level with double door access could serve as additional garage space or allow for easy loading and unloading for hobbies. Rich in history and wildlife, this property is a Certified Wildlife Habitat and historic mine entrance. The entire property consists of three GTA lots (3.45 acres total) at the end of a cul-de-sac that adjoins 31 acres of green space to the east with horse and walking trails. So many details in this magnificent home: built-in bookshelves, copper gutters on back of home, and three furnaces with April Air purifiers make this home a must-see. Home is being sold with some furniture and furnishings. If you are considering building, this could prove to be an alternative solution that could save time and money. Ownership of this lot entitles you to numerous neighborhood amenities. And this property is only a half-mile away from the Owner's club that offers pools, tennis courts, a fitness facility, recreation center, and basketball court. Additional amenities include 24 miles of walking/hiking trails, Lake Galena for boating and fishing, a marina complex, and an equestrian center.
