A Rare FindHistory is littered with stories of rare finds of all types ranging from items found in old barns to artifacts from archaeological digs. We are enamored with the possibility that we have stumbled onto something that is unique, and of course, a complete surprise. This dream of a rare find has become a national obsession, and while we may not find the old document worth millions in our grandmother's attic, there are special treasures to be had. Rare finds like an ideal place that both warms and soothes our psyche. Turn the curve in the drive and you are confronted with such a surprising discovery. The home and grounds beckon, quietly sitting in a stand of large hardwoods with a pristine backdrop; the best of nature tended to near perfection. This property is indeed a rare find; your home in a highly desirable area or the best of sites for your business. Special Use Permit zoning offers this unusual dual opportunity. A 3,054 -square foot home, distinctive in its own right, with a detached spa, a shop/storage building and manicured grounds/landscaping comprise the 3.3 acre find. Cedar siding, metal roof, flagstone walks and patio, with full front porch and a multi-tiered deck greet you as you approach the home. Enter the front door to the 2-story great room with vaulted ceiling, large wood beams, floor to ceiling stone fireplace and reclaimed pine floors and walls and immediately you know this is a special place. From this room, all the primary living spaces are accessible; through the double doors to the deck, up the open stairs to the large master suite, into the sunroom by way of another set of double doors, or enter the two main floor guest rooms. The gourmet kitchen is located next to the dining area in the great room. This special home does not end there. A separate wing exists, ideal for a variety of uses; guest wing, entertainment area, or office space. Enter from the outside to a spacious entrance hall/reception area with storage closet and a full bath. A large entertainment/reading/sitting room is the center piece of the wing. From there stairs lead to a private, oversized guest room/bonus room or more office/flex space. A hallway connects this discrete wing to the kitchen and the home?s primary living spaces. Outside living is valued here, a multi-tiered deck with hot tub offers spaces for relaxing, dining, or just enjoying the surroundings. From the deck, there are multiple groomed walking trails for exercise or quiet sitting areas with benches for meditation. The moss lawn adds to the serenity of the grounds. Natural elements are incorporated into the property with rock walls bordering the drive and flag stone walks around the home. Ample parking spaces exist, all in the shade of tall oaks. A new detached spa is tucked in the trees directly behind the home. Handicap accessible with a ramp leading to the full deck, this independent structure has two rooms. Currently, one is an exercise room and the second a fully equipped spa room with massage table, pedicure chair and hair styling station. Like much of this distinctive property, this space is extremely flexible and can be used to fit your particular needs. Beauty, privacy, functionality, versatility; all inadequately describe the property. But, as you stand and gaze at this exceptional property you are overwhelmed with a feeling of tranquility and transported to places you have only imagined. It is a rare find, one that can be yours.
