Oversized windows allow for natural wooded surroundings to become an interior décor of this contemporary ranch home located within the Meeker Creek subdivision of Butler Twp.

Listed for $449,900 by Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors, the brick ranch at 7256 Meeker Creek Drive has about 4,760 square feet of living space that includes a fully finished, walk-out lower level.

Triangular windows under cathedral peaks and an oversized updated front door provide a peak to the home’s open floor plan.

Formal entry opens into a foyer with marble flooring that continues into the kitchen, breakfast room and main hallway. Open to the foyer is the formal dining room, which has wood flooring and is accented by faux-painted pillars. Double doors open from the foyer into an executive office with a cathedral ceiling accented by triangle windows.

Straight off the foyer is the extra-wide stairwell with window-accented landing and the great room, which has four picture windows that provide views of the wooded, 0.69-acre property. The great room has a gas fireplace and carpeting, which divides the space from the kitchen and breakfast room.

An angled peninsula counter has breakfast bar seating for six and a lower counter with double-sink and dishwasher. Antiqued cabinetry fills one wall around the range and offers additional counter space. There is a pantry closet. A door off the breakfast room opens to a screen-enclosed deck with carpeting and paddle fan. The deck is also accessible from the first-floor main bedroom.

The main bedroom suite is located at the end of the central hallway and has a walk-in closet and two double-door entrances to the private bathroom, which features a ceramic-tile surround shower with seat, a whirlpool tub and a double-sink vanity. Across the hallway is the laundry room with two closets, bench seat, hanging cabinetry and a sink. The laundry is the mud room to the three-car garage.

A combined family room and recreation room is the centerpiece to the lower level. The family room has a gas fireplace and six picture windows that look out to the back yard. The recreation room has a wet bar and patio-door access to a composite deck, part of which is covered from the upstairs porch.

A hallway from the recreation room leads to three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. Two bedrooms have walk-in closets while the third had two closets. One bath has a walk-in shower while the other features a tub/shower and double-sink vanity. There is a finished bonus room for storage and an unfinished room where the home’s mechanical systems are located.
