Under Contract
Directions to your dream home: follow a winding concrete drive to the top of a hill to find a beautiful, deceptively large, 3 bedroom/ 2 bath split level home (3288 sq.ft.) with lots of versatile space; perfect for the family looking for their own piece of God's country. Nestled on 17 1/2 acres of quiet wooded land (willing to sell on smaller plot), it is located 2 miles from the small town of Jay with shopping and great schools, 28 miles from Whiting Field Naval Air Station, 38 miles from Pensacola, and 55 miles from the world's most beautiful beaches. Complete home renovation in 2003/04 includes mahogony front door with beveled glass, new windows throughout, HVAC, roof, spanish lace ceilings, beautiful wood floors in dining room/kitchen/foyer, carpet in livingroom/bedrooms, and ceramic tile in bathroom and downstairs. Kitchen renovation includes Corian countertops and stainless steel appliances (more recently added). You will immediately appreciate the beautiful wood grain of the large island and original kitchen cabinetry. Bathroom renovation includes large garden jetted tub, stand alone shower, and dual sinks. Window views from each of the 3 bedrooms upstairs offer the perfect opportunity to relax and appreciate your serene country life. A small utility closet in the hall offers a convenient laundry chute. Custom hand-crafted mahogony stairs lead down to a large den with mahogony cabinetry and mantle. Large fireplace with windowed insert offers cozy ambiance along with efficiant heating. "Basement" level offers approximately 1600 sq ft of versatile space including a large den with french doors leading to the New Orleans inspired patio, a large playroom, full bath, bonus room (formerly used as a music studio/storage room), an office/laundry room with custom desk and cabinets, and a walk-in closet. The back yard boasts a large 30x48' enclosed workshop/barn with large rolling doors on both ends, and a 19x48' covered area on the cement slab. A fresh water well, installed 3 years ago, along with a Rain Bird automatic sprinkler system are located in the pump house. They supply the entire front, back, and side yards with the consistent watering necessary to maintain a beautiful green lawn. Surrounding the house and yard is plenty of your own heavily wooded land, offering you a hunter's paradise without even starting the truck (see the picture of 9 deer grazing outside the dining room window last year!). This beautiful home property is a must-see for any family that dreams of getting away from it all to live a quiet country life, while remaining conveniently close to work, shopping, great schools, and gorgeous beaches.
