The phrase "timber hideaway" is easy to write but hard to provide. In the summertime when the trees are in full foilage your hideaway neighbors can barely be seen. Along with the hundreds of trees the wildlife is spectacular. Sometimes the deer are seen by the dozens, eagles have overnighted in trees within 100' of the house. It is interesting to hear the squirrels chatter at owls as they get close to their nest. Turkeys, racoons, chipmonks and many species of birds are also our neighbors. Now about the house, built by the CEO of the Pella Corp. in 1977, the house has Pella windows, 7 sliding doors, trapizoid windows, hardwood floors that look like new, 100 square feet of granite in the kitchen & pantry, Electrolux appliances, central vac., Wood Mode cabinets and ceramic tile were original or added over the years. The dining room looks out into the timber with 7 large windows. Upper family room with its huge rockwall and woodburning fireplace, just like the lower level family room, give the home a warm & cozy feeling. The living room with all its windows has a catheral ceiling & hard wood floor, is an elegant room. The master bedroom easily holds the king size bed with 2 large night stands, triple dresser and still has room for a misses desk w/o looking crowded. Adjoined is the master bath with its large walkin shower, jetted tub with a window which allows one to watch deer walk by as you relax. Thru the master bed room slider just like the one in the living room you get access to the upper screened in deck that is carpeted and the wood finish is one of the best ever seen. In the heat of the summer there are not many days one can not sit on the deck with its ceiling fan, shade trees and enjoy an iced tea. Down the spiral stairway brings you to the walkout lower level that features and office/exercise room that is under the dining room, with windows that lets one look out in the timber. The lower screened in deck located under the large upper deck also avails views into the timber. The lower level also features a steam shower, 2 bedrooms with huge closets, wet bar with stove and frig, 3/4 bath, family room, furnace room and seperate storage room. The attached 2 1/2 car garage with drain and epoxy floor is way above average. The detached garage is very large with a woodburning stove, work area, storage for lawn equipment, boat and it still has room for a vehicle. This home could be your once in a lifetime opportunity to live in your dream hideaway.
