Stunning. That is the word that comes to mind when viewing this contemporary home, nestled in the heart of downtown, that comes with a secret. It was architect designed as a blend of the best of modern construction with the warmth of something more traditional and it delivers. From the moment you walk in the spacious entryway you are met by the colorful custom staining on the polished concrete floor. This beautiful floor flows through both levels of the home and visually and emotionally ties everything together while offering the ease of cleaning and the warmth of a radiant heating system that only concrete offers. On the main level are three bedrooms and a sunny family room. Two bedrooms have their own IKEA vanity sink and drawers and share a toilet and shower. There is also a full bathroom on this level so the occupant of the third bedroom or anyone enjoying the family room has access to the facilities. Off the other side of the entryway is the oversized two car garage and a mudroom and laundry facility that also has a small overhead door for quick ATV, lawnmower/snow blower, or bike storage. On the upper level are the open living, kitchen and dining area, another bedroom that works well as a home office, a powder room and the generous master suite. The kitchen boasts maple cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a corner pantry, and solid surface countertops. The windows in the living area and the high ceilings give so much light and openness; eating at the dining table feels almost like being outside! A sliding glass door leads out onto a deck that is perfect for grilling whether there is snow or sun and also has access to the fenced backyard. The size of the lot must be mentioned because it is awesome Ã¢Â€Â“ 18,000 sf in downtown is extremely difficult to come by. The exterior finish of the house will be maintenance free for years with an attractive combination of plum, copper, and silver galvanized metal siding and the double wall framing behind it is both robust and energy efficient. Adding to the exceptional energy efficiency are an HRV and a top of the line Buderus boiler. And the secret? The location of the house is within the unpublished Barnette Magnet School "walking district" which means that children from K-6 are automatically able to get into this highly coveted school without playing the lottery system.
