Contributing Writer

Surrounded by a park-like, one-acre property, this three-bedroom brick ranch has a versatile floor plan with a central great room, family room and a full unfinished basement.

Listed for $398,000 by Galbreath Realtors, the ranch at 7945 Crestway Road in Clayton has about 2,890 square feet of living space. A circular concrete driveway frames the formal entry to the home while a second concrete driveway leads to the oversized, two-car garage and a pole barn with two bay-door entry.

Formal entry opens into a foyer with a peak barrel ceiling and ceramic-tile flooring. Fluted woodwork trims walkways and doorways. Straight off the foyer is the great room and centerpiece to the house. The great room has a wall of windows, a cathedral ceiling, and a gas fireplace surrounded by a fluted wood mantel. Built-in bookcases and media center flank the fireplace.

An angled peninsula counter divides the kitchen from the great room. The updated kitchen features antique white cabinetry that includes a pantry and buffet, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and wood flooring. A breakfast room has a bay bump-out design. A walkway off the breakfast room leads into a family room or den, which has a corner, gas fireplace with built-in media nook. There is tongue-and-groove wood ceiling with recessed lighting and sliding patio doors that open out to the backyard patio.

A hallway from the foyer leads to the bedroom wing and an office or guest wing. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms are located off the bedroom wing. The main bedroom has a picture window that looks out over the park-like back yard. French doors open into the updated bathroom with ceramic-tile flooring, tall vanity with double sink, whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower. There is also a walk-in closet.

The two front bedrooms mirror each other in design with a box window with window seat and double-door closets.

Off the opposite end of the hallway is the formal dining room with dentil crown molding and a box window. Continuing down the hallway is a laundry room with folding counter, ironing board, wash sink and cabinetry. A full bathroom has a corner shower and tall single-sink vanity. An office or study has a built-in executive desk with drawers and hanging cabinets.

The hallway ends at the interior entrance to the oversized garage, which has a double-door storage closet, an elevated storage nook and a stairwell to the basement, which is also accessible from inside the house. The basement has 2,000 square feet of unfinished space.
