As you drive away from the city, you leave the noise and pressures behind you like the traffic in your rear view mirror. Turning onto Fishers Mill Road, you meander along the country lane, cross the Elkhorn Creek and discover the pastoral setting that is Fishers Mill Landing. Located just minutes from Historic Midway Kentucky, you are in the heart of the Bluegrass. The capitol building in Frankfort is only 25 minutes away as is Toyota in Georgetown, Versailles or LexMark in Lexington. And with access to I-64 at Midway, travel to Cincinnati and Louisville is simple.
Fishers Mill Landing is a collection of two acre lots on cul-de-sacs surrounded by eight to sixteen acre mini-farms. This property is an eight acre plot, six acres of well maintained lawn and two acres of woods and stream, located at the end of Sea Otter Circle. You get the benefit of neighbors on the street yet the rear of this property is secluded by a small wooded area and a large adjoining farm. It features a 2900 square foot split ranch home and a 4000 square foot steel building at the rear of the property. It is a four bedroom and three and a half bath home. It was custom designed to be handicap friendly with flat transition from the garage into the home. Large door openings, an open floor plan, lots of hardwood floors and a Mother-in-Law suite with a walk-in shower all contribute to making access with a wheel chair or walker much easier.
The exterior of the home is all brick with custom Indiana Limestone trim around all of the windows and entries. The limestone theme continues into the spacious great room with a large stone fireplace, ventless gas logs and seating on the hearth. The floors in all of the public areas are Brazilian cherry and wonderfully compliment the custom solid cherry cabinets in the huge kitchen. All of the ceilings are at least 10 foot tall and accented with extensive trimwork/crown molding throughout the home.
An abundance of kitchen cabinets surround the large island and provide both a cooking and preparation area. The double oven with warming drawer simplifies your work whenever you are preparing meals or large dinners. Two large pantries with pull-out drawers and specialty cabinetry will give you ample space for a well stocked kitchen. All appliances are stainless steel. The adjacent large breakfast nook looks out over the patio and beautiful landscaping. On the opposite end of the kitchen, the comfortable dining room, with tray ceiling, can easily fit a large dining suite.
The master bedroom, with plush carpeting has a large tray ceiling and fan. The master bath has heated tile flooring, cultured marble jetted-tub and matching large walk-in shower with glass surrounds. The dual level vanity is of the same cultured marble and solid cherry cabinetry. The bathroom has a private water closet and walk-in closet.
The home has three other large bedrooms on the opposite end of the home. The largest is the Mother-in-Law suite with a private bathroom. It features beautiful tile flooring and tiled shower with glass doors. This bathroom also has maple cabinets. The remaining two bedrooms are currently used as offices, as seen in the photographs, with another full bathroom in the hallway. This bathroom also has a cultured marble tub and surround.
There is a half-bathroom as you enter from the garage. Adjacent to this is a deep laundry room with cabinets, counter-top and lots of shelving. It also serves as the mechanical room which houses the geo-thermal HVAC which is connected to the water heater. The HVAC system also has a whole house humidfier and an ultra-violet lamp for removing unwelcome pathogens.
The nearly 700 square foot garage is spacious enough for two full sized vehicles without bumping doors. It also houses the Beam central vacuum unit as well as the attic access.
The rear covered porch and patio is located on the east side of the house and is wonderful for afternoon entertaining. The high pitched roof begins providing shade around 5 PM even at the height of summer. With a backyard of several acres there is plenty of room for lounging or playing.
The house was built to be very energy efficient in many aspects. The fireplace is ventless so no money is floating up a chimney. The energy efficient Peachtree windows, the geo-thermal HVAC, and septic system all contribute to low monthly utility costs. All of the windows have plantation blinds and custom window treatments.
The home is also protected by a monitored security system with motion detectors, glass break sensors and smoke alarms.
The concrete driveway, walks and patio are all exposed river aggregate from the road to near the steel building. The concrete drive then continues around the building for drive-thru ease. The steel building has large overhead doors at each end, a loft for approximately one third of the building, a storage room and a work room both dry walled. It features hi-bay lighting for easy indoor work. Although now being used for contractors equipment storage, it could easily be converted to accomodate storing boats, RVs, campers or even buses. It could also be modified as a horse barn, hobbies or other artisan interests. With 4000 square feet available, dream big!
