Hardwood flooring, custom built-ins, volume ceilings and a walk-out lower level are just a few highlight to this ranch home located in the Stone Ridge subdivision of Springboro.

Listed for $444,900 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the home at 235 N. Hills Blvd. has about 4,440 square feet of living space within the two levels. The custom-built home has a three-car garage with a covering over the one-car bay. Tucked off the covered porch, the formal entry opens into a foyer hallway with an arched walkway to the formal dining room to the left and the guest bedroom hallway to the right.

Two bedrooms and a full bathroom are off the foyer. One bedroom has a cathedral ceiling while both bedrooms have double-door closets. The bath has a tub/shower with ceramic-tile surround, a single-sink vanity and ceramic-tile flooring.

The dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows, crown molding and an arched walkway to the kitchen.

Straight off the foyer is the great room, which is open to the breakfast room. One wall has a custom-built media center with cabinets and bookcases that surround a gas fireplace. A wrap-around peninsula counter creates a breakfast bar setting and divides the kitchen from the breakfast room. Granite countertops and cabinetry fill three walls and surround appliances that include a refrigerator, wall ovens and a gas cooktop.

There is corner pantry closet and double-door pantry cabinetry. Sliding patio doors open out to a multi-level balcony rear deck and fenced back yard.

An open staircase with wrought iron railing leads to the lower level. Across from the staircase is the mudroom with a built-in deacon’s bench, access to the garage and a pocket door that opens into the laundry room, which has a wash tub and full wall of folding counter and cabinets.

The main bedroom has an enlarged tray ceiling with speakers and ceiling fan. The private bath has a corner whirlpool tub below a window, a hidden walk-in ceramic-tile shower, a double-sink vanity, a walk-in closet with built-in organizers and a separate toilet room behind a pocket door.

Highlighted by a tall window, the stairwell leads down into a recreation room with multiple daylight windows, a gas fireplace and sliding patio doors that open out to a stone patio, part of which is covered by the deck. The landscaped back yard has a two-level pond with koi and waterfalls.

A hallway off the recreation room leads to two bonus rooms, both with closets and daylight windows and a full bath with walk-in shower. There is also unfinished space with storage and the mechanical systems.
