7 bedrooms, 6 full bathrooms, including a full in-law apartment.
6,058 square feet -- beats virtually anything on the market for this size home at this price.
Home is only 9 miles from I-495, and within easy walking distance of an elementary and middle school.
Our ground floor level has the main home's kitchen, dining room and a formal living room, as well as both entrances to the in-law apartment. The in-law apartment is completely on the ground floor.
The centrally located staircase takes you to the second floor and you enter the larger "family room" for the home. Off to one side is an enormous master bedroom suite (which our family used as our homeschooling space!).
The other direction off of the family room takes you down a hallway, off of which are initially two bedrooms (which we used as our office and guest rooms) and then another master bedroom suite, a separate full bath and two further "kid" bedrooms (we had all our boys in one room and all our girls in the other - they are large rooms!).
There is a screened in, covered porch off the ground floor and, stacked on top, an open (not screened or covered) porch accessible from the second floor. The deck material on the upper deck is completely composite wood, making it very low maintenance.
Our large, flat backyard is fully fenced with a 6' privacy fence. There is a pond about 2/3 of the way back away from the house with fish in it! There is a shed for storing garden tools, etc. on the back left corner and, behind it, another shed which we used to house our poultry flock. Attached to this shed is a 40' x 40' enclosed (sides and top) run. The smaller shed is a standard garden-type shed and could easily be adapted for other uses.
We are writing a blog about our home to help you "catch the vibe" of a home that we loved and would like to find a new family to love it, too! We are using Word Press and the blog title is the home's address. Take a look and see a little window into what life in this very unique home was like for our large, active family - daily life, holidays and lots of hospitality!
