Custom designed and built in 1993, this contemporary four bedroom, two and a half bath home is a one-of-a-kind property that combines indoor and outdoor living. A window wall leading to the backyard contrasts with the unassuming front entrance that leads you into a bright, open living room with wood-burning fireplace and cantilevered hearth that seamlessly connects to dining and kitchen spaces. A large island provides additional seating for guests and a line of windows creates a bright and inviting kitchen space. Even the custom windows are strategically placed to provide optimal light throughout the day in this thoughtfully designed home. Extraordinary views through the expansive windows usher you out onto the modern wrap-around deck with a view of protected grasslands and wooded areas leading to the owned creek segment in this 1.05 acre lot. A rustic brick and flagstone patio with a large fire pit is enveloped by mature trees. You'll forget you're fewer than 5 minutes from the amenities in Uptown Normal, the Constitution Trail, and convenient shopping when you're enjoying this serene space. The main level also includes a primary bedroom/ensuite bathroom with walk-in closet, deep tub, separate shower, and private water closet. An additional office/study room, guest half-bath, and spacious laundry/mudroom combo off of the 2+-car garage completes the main floor. Another large living area with fireplace, three additional bedrooms with daylight windows, a workshop/studio, workout room and sauna, as well as additional storage complete the walk-out basement. A concrete pad is already wired for a hot tub right out of the lower level door. In addition to all of the unique design features, this one-owner home has structural upgrades such as a poured concrete foundation, whole house fan, and central vacuum. The extended circle drive provides additional parking spaces for guests. This home has so much to offer. Must see!
