Tucked within a hillside among a wooded, 2.05-acre property, this brick ranch is a hidden oasis with a secluded main bedroom and a full, finished lower level.

Listed for $540,000 by eXp Realty, the home at 2670 Centerville Station Road has about 5,480 square feet of living space. The 2-plus-acre property includes a paved circular driveway, a three-car garage, a garden shed, a pavilion with electric, a salt-water in-ground swimming pool and a patio deck surrounded by rock walls. A bridge from the main roadway crosses over a creek to the drive that leads up to the house.

The main level has vaulted ceilings with skylights, a bedroom wing with four bedrooms and three full bathrooms, the kitchen and a formal dining room. The lower level has a patio door that open to a sunken patio. The lower level has been finished into a family room, recreation room, kitchen, possible bedroom, hobby room, and there is an unfinished workshop and storage bonus room.

An updated geo-thermal furnace and central air conditioning was installed in 2009, and there is an 85-gallon well pump and electric water heater. Pella doors and Andersen windows are throughout the home.

Formal entry opens into a foyer with access to the formal dining room to the left, the great room straight ahead and the hallway to the bedroom wing to the right. The dining room has wood flooring and a tray ceiling and the great room has a vaulted ceiling with two skylights. There is a wood-burning fireplace with a fluted wood beam mantel.

The main bedroom suite has a separate sitting room, a box window with seat, patio doors that open to the pool deck and an updated private bathroom. The bath features a walk-in shower with ceramic-tile surround and leaded-glass doors, a double-sink vanity with marble countertop, two walk-in closets and a soaking tub.

Two other bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill divided bathroom and the fourth bedroom has a private entrance to the guest bath.

On the opposite side of the house are the kitchen and breakfast room. The breakfast room has a bay bump-out and patio doors that opens to the pool deck. The kitchen has cherry cabinetry, including an island, planning desk and appliances garage. Corian countertops complement the cabinetry, and there is a double sink below a window. Appliances include a wall oven, a cooktop, dishwasher and microwave. Off the kitchen is a small entrance from the garage, access to a half bathroom and access to the laundry room.

A door from the kitchen leads to the finished lower level. The stairwell ends into the recreation room, which has the patio doors to the sunken patio. Tucked off the recreation room is a full kitchen with two walls of cabinetry, a sink and room for a small dining table. The kitchen is also accessible to the family room, which has a tray ceiling and a brick, wood-burning fireplace.

A room currently used as an office has a tray ceiling and double-door closet so it could be used as a fifth bedroom. There is a full bathroom, two storage closets, a hobby room and a workshop. A storage room has the home’s mechanical systems.
