Splash in the stream or the private lap pool. This is a true luxury retreat no matter the use. Building by building, let’s take a closer look.
Main House | The 40′ x 40′, 1600 sqft main house has walls, floors and decks of poured concrete with the walls faced in rock. It is 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. The house was constructed in 1946 by a structural engineer who built bomb shelters. There are approximately 1600 square feet of covered cantilevered decks supported by 7″ x 12″ steel beams and beautifully chamfered rails of formed concrete. The current owner has updated everything from roofing to mechanical systems to make the home efficient, light, bright and ready for today’s living. A full list of quality details can be provided.
Garage, Workshop and Laundry | Built in 1997 the 1445 sqft two car garage adjacent to the home, also, has a large workshop space. The space is heated with an Empire gas heater and has three-phase power to provide for all your industrious needs, but could easily be converted into additional living or working space if needed. The building has an easy to access attic for additional storage or use.
Gym | The gym building was built in 1997 and is 1315 sqft. and is loaded with the latest in the state of the art gym equipment. This building does have one bathroom and is located above the creek to give you that natural spa ambiance. The space, also, has a high quality projector system and high-speed internet for entertainment or to convert into a workshop presentation space as needed.
Office | The 425 sqft office building, also built in 1997, is located privately on the creek with its own screened porch attached. The building is heated, insulated, powered and has high-speed internet. You could maintain it as an office, use for a private treatment room or convert it to private living quarters.
4 Car Garage | The property’s other garage can hold 4 cars if needed and is 1125 sqft. It, also, comes fully heated and powered. The space is topped by an easily accessed attic space. The quality built facility could, again, be converted to serve a variety of functions.
Pool | The gunite lap pool is 4′ deep x 10′ wide x 50′ long and is located between an original hedge and the main lawn. The pool has a hydraulic cover, an oversized 400,000 BTU propane heater for fast heating, fiber optic lighting, automatic chlorine generator, self-cleaning vacuum system along with an outdoor shower with separate water heater. The walls are a full 12′ thick with dual 1/2″ rebar on 6′ x6′ centers. The floor is a full 16″ thick with triple 1/2″ rebar on 6” centers. Not only can you enjoy the pool for all the obvious reasons, but you can relax and enjoy it for its lasting quality and low maintenance construction.
