Brick ranch has walk-out lower level, 5-car garage



Home on 6 acres within cul-de-sac setting

Contributing Writer

Tucked back on a cul-de-sac surrounded by six acres, this brick ranch has space for inside and outside entertainment lifestyles.

Listed for $679,000 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the home at 1641 Graceland Drive has about 5,290 square feet of living space. Four aces of the property are wooded with private walking trails.

A metal pole barn has a covered entry and loft storage. Multi-level wooden decks lead down to a fence-enclosed, in-ground swimming pool with covered outdoor bar area. Patio doors from the great room and lower-level recreation room open out to the decks.

At the front of the home, a concrete driveway has extra parking spaces and leads to a covered front porch and the two-bay, five-car garage. The garage has loft storage, a pet wash, a rear service door and a back staircase to the lower-level workshop.

Inside the home, many of the rooms have built-in bookcases and cherry cabinetry. Wood-laminate flooring fills most of the main social areas.

Formal entry opens into a foyer with French doors that open to an office with built-in bookcases and pillar accents to the entrance to the open dining room with wainscoting.

Straight back is the great room with a volume ceiling, a wall of windows, three skylights and a gas fireplace flanked by bookcases.

A wrap-around peninsula counter has breakfast bar seating for six and a lower counter with a double sink. The kitchen is filled with cherry cabinetry, an island and the breakfast room has a bay window. Off the kitchen is a mud room with a walk-in pantry, access to a half bathroom, laundry hook-ups, a folding counter with sink and access to the garage.

A hallway from the great room leads to three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The main bedroom has two closets and the private bath features a soaking tub, double-sink vanity with make-up desk and a step-in shower. The other two bedrooms have built-in bookcases and cabinets.

A door opens to a staircase to the attic, which could be finished.

Spindles accent the stairwell to the lower level, which has just as much living space as the main level. Directly off the stairwell are two bedrooms and a full bath. The bath has an oversized walk-in shower and is accessible to one of the bedrooms, which has a walk-in closet and a daylight window.

Most of the lower level has been finished into a recreation room with media area and family room space. A brick hearth and wall accents surround the free-standing, wood-burning stove. More bookcases are built-in the media nook, which is wired for sound and a projection television. French patio doors open to the covered patio with access to the pool deck.

The unfinished utility room has the mechanical systems and a second laundry hook-up. Another door off the recreation room opens into the workshop, which has access to the garage.
