Property Description

Paradise! Perched high for spectacular panoramic views of the pond and nature, this custom home features every luxury. Literally, the best lot in Fox Mill, with .38 acres nestled on a quiet cul-de-sac! Floor-to-ceiling picture windows bring nature indoors as you overlook the huge pond just steps past your pool and hot tub. Derrico Builders is known for its amazing craftsmanship with white stacked millwork, crown moulding, beam and tray ceilings, and wainscoting. A stately brick exterior with cedar touches makes for a solid home. Elegant volute newel posts on the stairway in the large two-story foyer plus a separate back stairway to the kitchen for privacy. Bright open kitchen with granite counters, cherry cabinets, and a two-level island with seating for six overlooks the lofty family room and the eat-in with elevated tray ceiling (check out that full wall picture window!) Easy access to one of the trex decks (& stairs heading down to the side/rear yard) off the eat-in. The family room features 32-foot beamed ceilings with a full brick floor-to-ceiling fireplace flanked by tall windows and handy access to the other trex deck. The family room deck has an attached gazebo that stays with screen curtains and solid privacy curtains to keep you cool during the summer months while viewing the private nature behind. It also has glass balusters to give an unimpeded view. The cheerful sunroom would be a great playroom/extra office and is directly off the family room with huge windows. Sunroom could be 1st floor master bedroom if shower is added to powder room. French doors lead to a quiet den with classic wainscoting, coffered ceilings, recessed lighting, and a full wall of built-ins-bring your books! The elegant dining room is expansive with tray ceilings, stacked crown moulding, wainscoting, and chair rail for large dinners or holidays. Could easily be converted to a living room if wanted. The main suite is to die for with a rehabbed luxury bath and a closet the size of a bedroom...custom closet organizers and a huge island with drawers and shelves! The main bath has been rehabbed with a beautiful whirlpool stand-alone tub, touch (on/off) faucets, extra cabinetry, granite counters, new tile, and a new glass shower door/enclosure. Bedrooms 2 & 3 feature tray ceilings with a cute jack & jill bathroom with 3 skylights above! Bedroom 4 has cathedral ceilings and its own full bathroom with a tub/shower combo!
