From first glance, you can see the quality in This GASTINEAU OAK log home (Cumberland Mountain Plan) www.oakloghome.com Walking to the front door through the stunning perennial garden creates an esthetic appeal with stages of bloom, spring through fall. The newly constructed deck allows for entertaining with an unobstructed view creating a sense of peacefulness. The Arctic entry allows plenty of room for shedding your shoes and coats. This leads into the appealing oversized kitchen that will inspire your inner chef. Large granite counters and a magnificent island with built in induction range and microwave. Always a focal gathering area when inviting friends and family for special occasions. There is both a high counter eating area or a low eating area. The main living area is wide open with soaring wood ceilings and exposed beams. The focal stone fireplace and numerous window walls allows you to relax in the warm sunshine and admire your surroundings, hating to leave ever leave your home. Our formal dining room has plenty of space to serve those big Christmas dinners. All open to the kitchen and living room so no one gets left out. A wet bar off the dining area allows for easy entertaining and plenty of storage. The oversized Master bedroom have an abundance of natural light with walls of windows and patio doors. Lock yourself away from the rest of the world in your personal retreat or have a coffee on the deck outside the bedroom door; rest and recharge. The oversized granite bathroom the allows for soaking in a bubble bath from the deep claw foot tub while enjoying the sunshine from the overlooking window. It also boasts a large tiled shower with stone floor to wash your troubles away. All this AND in floor heat to make those winter mornings much more bearable. The large walk in closet gives plenty of room for those who love to have plenty room to store clothing. The second bedroom on the main level is stunning with all its windows and patio doors. It also has a large granite unsuited bathroom with a beautiful stone shower. Your children or guests will enjoy every minute of privacy in their own private retreat. There are two oak staircases. One leading to the loft and one to the daylight family room. The loft is a perfect area for that man cave for him or sitting room for her. This is a great place to admire the lower level of your home or the view through the large A frame windows. You often catch a glimpse of moose beading down in the yard or just passing through along with the 2 nesting eagles that soar overhead. The lower level has a carpeted heated floor for TV watching or a fabulous game room for the kids. There is a very large third bedroom with walk in closet. Room enough for a fabulous sitting room. Maybe for your Mother-in-Law? A small second kitchen was installed. We love not having to go upstairs to get drinks or popcorn. This room also has 220 electric installed for those ladies who love to tan like I do. A large bathroom with granite counter top & plenty of storage. From the Family room there are 2 large patio doors leading to the lovely cement deck and maintained lush green lawn that goes on forever. There is fresh rhubarb which grows yearly along with raspberry patches. For those who like to garden, there is a green house and a fenced garden. The downstairs laundry room is large and has plenty of storage. There is also a laundry sink for those big messes. Walk through to your oversized 2 car garage with plenty of room for extras. I love this space in the winter to drive into a warm space and unload the groceries. Also, a great place for your pets to spend warm nights. The yard is breath taking in the summer. So many sounds of nature and sights appealing to the senses. It just brings a sense of calmness and joy. There is much for the man of the house with a detached oversized 5 car garage. This is any man's dream! Plenty of room for storing toys and for the mechanic who likes to tinker with things. But that's not all, there is still more storage sheds and a HUGE pole barn for storing your boats and RV's. Nothing will ever have to be snow covered again. We have enjoyed our friends (more our kid's friends) around the stone fire pit. Large bon fires late into the night never get old. There is so much more but you will have to experience for yourself. We have been truly blessed living here. We can say that we have never been on a property that compares to the greatness of our log home. We hope the right family can enjoy this magnificent home like we do.
