Bring the entire family to see this one! This was a Parade of Homes model that had improvements made to it! Entering the front door you'll find an open air concept living room featuring a granite face natural gas fireplace, oak hardwood flooring, a vaulted ceiling with two large skylights, and a solid cherry entertainment center. Next to that is the one-of-a-kind kitchen that also has cherry cabinets and granite counter tops a large kitchen island features with a 2nd sink for food prep. The dishwasher has been raised up with a cabinet underneath it so you don't have to bend over to the floor to load or pick-up dishes! (They should all be like that!) The large windows in the dining area allow you to see the entire back yard down below. With the gentle slope of the terrain in the backyard, the view has an amphitheater affect allowing you to see all types of wildlife - deer, turkey, fox, etc.
Across from the kitchen is the formal dining room with oak floors and solid cherry inlays, chandelier, wet bar and built in wine bottle coolers and glass holders.
Behind the kitchen is the Sun Room - also having panoramic windows and skylights above. From there, open up the sliding glass doors and step into the large Master Bedroom! The walk-in closet also holds a built in safe for valuables. The Master Bath features a two-person Jacuzzi with a chandelier above that ! Open the sliding pocket door and step into the custom tiled walk-in shower.
On the opposite side of the living room there are two large bedrooms that share a full bathroom, double sinks and walk-in shower.
Walk down the oak staircase to a huge Family Room (38x26) ! It has a tile floor, gas fireplace (stone front on this one) and a one-of-a-kind custom made solid oak front and back-bar that looks like it came from the old west! It features a brass railing, an under counter sink and refrigerator, glass shelving, and a real tin ceiling above! The marble kick-plates are originally from Madison's state capitol building!
On one side of the Family Room are two more large bedrooms and a full bathroom. One bedroom also has an attached private work-out room w/closet.
Then it's on to the home theater - again one-of-a-kind! It features its own foyer with formal chandelier, gold trimmed tray ceiling and a full concession stand! It features an oven/stove, full sink and a under-cabinet refrigerator! The curtains open via remote control and the HD picture is on a 4x8 ft. screen! The reclining leather seats gently vibrate with a sub-woofer when the scene calls for it! Above are hundreds of gorgeous twinkling fiber optic lights that mesmerize all by themselves!
Next to the theater is the mechanical room where a double, insulated wall was made to eliminate any noise coming into the theater. Off that room is a huge walk-in cedar closet.
Walk through a door and go up some stairs and you'll see perhaps the nicest garage you've even seen - capable of holding a 6-7 cars! The front of the house features a one double door and two single garage doors - so it appears to be a normal 3 car garage. However the depth is double that of most garages! Designed this way, it doesn't look like there's a house attached to a huge garage. It has an additional garage door in the back easy movement of a lawn mower, etc. All 4 doors are powered by Liftmaster's new, almost silent wall mount motors w/motion detector lights. The garage has a light brown epoxy sealant on the floor for easy clean-ups and LED lighting that lights up the room as if it was high noon! The garage is heated and has a floor drain, utility sink and separate wall mount hot & cold water faucets.
Behind each lot in Grand View Estates is a green space which was required by the Town of Middleton. The area behind each house virtually doubles the size of each lot. Homeowners can do anything with this green space except build anything on it. Some have let there out-lots grow naturally, others keep the grass mowed. We decided to plant trees and bushes, which are now mature. Two years ago we decided to use a large portion of the out lot behind us to plant wildflowers that are natural to this area. Less mowing and more flowers - seemed like a no-brainer! Over $700 of wild flower seeds were planted - and in 2019 they will begin to bloom! They will naturally multiply and look better each subsequent year.
The backyard also has two separate brick patios one under the deck, the other in a corner cove - a great place to sit around a bonfire. Next to that patio a pondless waterfall - which has all the visual & sound benefits of a waterfall without the maintenance of keeping up a pond.
The back of the house features a huge two-level deck with access points from the dining room, sun room and one of the bedrooms. The deck is made of non-wood material and is basically impervious to the elements. Shatter-proof tempered glass was installed between the rail posts to allow unobstructed viewing from the deck or from inside the house.
Next to this house is another completely separate build-able lot which is also for sale. It too features 20+ year old mature trees on two sides providing plenty of privacy and has a large open area in the center for kids to play.
Serene Court is just off of Timber Lane - which is the divider between the Town of Middleton and Town of Cross Plains. This is where suburbia ends and the country begins. In this area , the Town of Cross Plains allows one house per 35 acres. That's the way it was 20 years ago and that's the way it is today - with no signs of changing. These two lots are at the end of a quiet cul de sac with woods and wildlife in the backyard and only 4 miles from the city of Madison! That's hard to beat!
