This modern farmhouse sits on 10.3 glorious acres within minutes of downtown Ann Arbor and only 5 miles to North Research Complex ! With a covered wrap-around front porch, a side atrium, and a screened back porch home to a piano, this Northeast abode invites the outside in on a year-around basis!
Its fresh interior includes a terrific chefs kitchen with sun-filled eating space, formal dining room, front parlor, family room with fireplace and vaulted ceilings, home office for two with a circular staircase that leads to a loft library, and 1st floor master.
Private yard features towering hardwoods, fruit and pine trees. Newly developed pond is a haven for wildlife and perfect habitat for frogs!
The bedrooms are spacious, inviting and filled with character and charm. There is something for everyone. First floor and second floor master bedrooms with ensuite. Plenty of recreational activities to keep all entertained.
You will have 4000 square ft of living, which is the entire guesthouse excluding the basement. The 4 bedrooms, living areas, kitchen, laundry, office and rooftop porch all yours for the taking. The wrap around porch and screened back porch, atrium and front parlour as well.
We have a Nespresso Pixie coffee machine, milk frother, toaster, microwave and kettle for your needs. Basic pots and pans for cooking if you wish.
The garden area would be shared, that is all BUT mainly by the wild habitat that visits on a regular basis or our gardeners who make weekly visits to maintain it. We do also have a precious feline that also resides here and his name is Bandicoot. His a chocolate, long haired, sweet and friendly resident that won't be shy to say 'purrrrrrhello' to you but will happily leave you alone if you show no interest.
Only the basement and office are off limits. We like to keep the basement available to us when this listing is booked. So you may or may not even encounter us, unless we are inspired to hang out in the vast open garden space and get to say 'hello' again. It is a huge area outdoors measuring 0.25 mi in diameter and we like to circle it a number of times to get in that exercise especially after dinner sometimes.
