Description

THREE RIVERS, MI TROPHY PROPERTY w/ 40+ ACRES - Up the familiar sloped driveway just past the classic white split rail fence that bonds the drive's long approach with the 2+ acre horse pasture is a handsome Tudor-style home, circular corral and three candy-apple red barns that begin to tell the story of something truly spectacular. While not birthed an equestrian estate, this property certainly has tremendous potential to become one. Set well off the road and boasting 40+ beautiful acres and over 2600 feet on U.S. Highway 131, this showcase property is one of the most desirable, picturesque estates in this rural farming community. Sophisticated, with high-end features and finishes casually introduced to create a home that's entirely comfortable for every-day-living, this intelligently designed 5-bed, 4.5 bath, 5000+ sf home, including separate guest suite w/ full kitchen, is a rare opportunity. ALSO AVAILABLE: 218 acres w/ 8800sf lodge and private Cotherman Lake | MLS# 19038525 Sophisticated, with high-end features and finishes casually introduced to create a home that's entirely comfortable for every-day-living, this intelligently designed 5-bed, 4.5 bath, 5000+ sf home, including separate guest suite with full kitchen, is a rare opportunity. Custom-built and meticulously maintained, this home has been the builder-owner's pride and joy. Expressing his love for design through unique architectural elements and exhaustive detail, you'll discover distinctive ¾" wide plank wood floors with raised 'nail heads', incredibly resilient Duraceramic tile floors throughout the main floor, granite and quartz counter tops, built-in appliances, a cast iron farm sink, ceramic floors, an elegant tile shower in the master suite, a bespoke artisan wall crafted with reclaimed wood, massive exposed beams and a custom built wet bar conveniently located between the living room and lounge with gorgeous Maple counter top, rough sawn reclaimed wood and eight articulating bar stools. Because of areas featuring expansive, two-story volume ceilings, the home has a sense of grandeur. Because of the tray ceilings in the dining area, guest suite, living room, family room and lounge, there is a great sense of intimacy. Because of the vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms, the home is dimensionally dynamic. Up-lighting in ceiling bulkheads casting illumination on the warm hues of the cedar planked ceilings and two wood-burning fireplaces featured in the living room and guest suite add even more to the very easy-going atmosphere. The main floor guest suite / in-law suite / office / apartment or whatever other purposeful meaning you choose to define this space as is conveniently located on the main floor, has private access, garden terrace access and access to the rest of the house. It comes complete with WIC, full bath and full kitchen. The second floor features four bedrooms, attractive main bath and convenient laundry room. A very unique and expansive loft-style master bedroom en suite is intriguing, very inviting and undeniably comfortable. Featuring a very spacious open walk-in-closet with custom closet organizer as well as side by side enclosed closets in the bedroom's entry hall, this is a bedroom quite unlike most you've ever seen. An elegant master bath features ceramic floors, titled shower, quartz counter tops, hickory vanity and two copper sink basins. An unfinished basement provides ample storage opportunities and is ideal to finish for an additional family room, theatre/media room, fitness room or general rec room. Basement boiler and outdoor wood burner are both apx 10 years old. NEW tear off roof with Owen Corning architectural shingles is new in 2017. Three accessory barns in various size and function and a 2640sf taj mahal of chicken coops (bird house) are associated with the property. The 1350sf horse stable has 4-5 stalls and is associated with 2.2+ acre pasture. The 2304sf pig or sheep barn (presently rams) is presently associated with an almost 1 acre pasture which could be potentially expanded to 1.25 acres. The 8736sf pole barn, currently used primarily for equipment storage, features an apx 6656sf open area with dirt floor that could be used as an indoor riding arena and an additional 2080sf of insulated storage rooms with concrete floor that could be transformed into stables. Of the 40+ acres, roughly 3.25 is currently pasture and roughly 10.5 is currently tillable. Park Township, a few miles north of Three Rivers and south of Kalamazoo, is a peaceful landscape with prosperous farms, industry, affordable homes, safe schools, scenic country roads and plenty of outdoor beauty and recreation. It's a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire. Whether you're looking for primary residence, a business opportunity or a vacation get-away, convenience and accessibility are always key.
