This is a 7,800 square foot, five bedroom, five full- and two half-bath home with a large saltwater pool, an open floor plan and a massive yard. We're in a quiet neighborhood, and once you have driven onto the property, you are enveloped in elegance, amenities and privacy. The house is fully furnished and has everything you need for a comfortable and easy stay. This is a perfect location and home for a large multi generation family to enjoy, or corporate retreat, but please do not inquire if you wish to use it just to have a party, it's just not the purpose of renting it out. This is my home and a place to be enjoyed by families or modest corporate events. Walk into the sun room and view the large saltwater pool, huge spa, outdoor theater, large brick upper patio with grill, well-kept gardens, and experience true privacy. You'll feel like you're in the most elegant hotel, but you're actually in your own space only ten minutes away from many of the amenities and restaurants that Ann Arbor has to offer. Owls, hawks, and foxes are our constant companions and we often have deer that roam the grounds. In the summer you can enjoy the saltwater pool and spa (through October) with underwater speakers and a fully integrated Sonos sound experience throughout the home. Four furnaces make things cozy and warm in the winter, along with a wood burning fireplace in the hearth room and a beautiful gas fireplace in the master bedroom. A few steps to the spacious Great Room with all-around daylight windows and you are surrounded by elegance and a thirty-foot high cedar ceiling, comfortable leather couches and chairs, a wet bar with a Sub Zero wine bar and fully stocked Sub Zero drink refrigerator. The 70” television and 9 speaker surround sound is the perfect place for your family to watch a movie or sporting event while you look at my private book collection, with some pieces more than 200 years old. The kitchen is well equipped with Sub Zero, Bosch and Viking appliances, all the dinnerware and cookware you'll need to make it a special experience with your family or corporate retreat. Everything is high-end in the kitchen. Walk through the Hearth Room with its own fireplace, comfortable furniture and ceiling fan to the dining room where you can seat up to 12 people on the beautiful dining room table underneath the leaded-glass Tiffany chandelier. Elegance. Downstairs has a fully appointed exercise room with a television, Olympic weights, dumbbells, a full Precor gym, an elliptical, stationary bike and the Sonos sound system to keep you motivated. There is a changing room, full bathroom, large bar with glassware, a drink refrigerator, blender and everything you would need for your family or corporate outing. Next to the bar is a large pool table that can also be converted to a ping pong table, a couch and several pool table stools to watch the action while the Sonos sound system entertains everyone. A large downstairs family room is the place to send the teenagers to enjoy the lush couches and to have their own space to catch up and enjoy each other. Walk out one of the four basement doors and you have a screened in porch with two couches, a ceiling fan and a peaceful place to read your book or just relax. Take one of the two staircases upstairs to the master bedroom, and your private oasis is nearly complete. Open the double doors to an expansive room with a cathedral ceiling and ceiling fan, where you can enjoy the gas fireplace and look over the pool, relishing the sun each morning through the large windows. The bed is romantic yet unpretentious and the mattress is absolutely incredible with great pillows, and comfortable linens that make for a really nice sleep every time. The master bathroom is spacious and open with a two-head walk-in shower, a Jacuzzi soaker tub and two separate sinks so two people can be in there at the same time and not feel crowded. Ceiling fans in all five bedrooms keep you cool or just provide a gentle breeze if you like the feel of moving air, rather than totally still. It's a beautiful set-up when you open a couple of windows strategically and get the nice cool air flowing through the house. Each of the four bedrooms feel calm and comfortable with plenty of dresser and closet space. Each of the bedrooms has a queen size bed with a very comfortable mattress and new linens. Two of the bedrooms have a private full bathroom, two bedrooms share a bathroom. This home will make you feel like you're miles from it all but allows for a very easy day-to-day living experience, with groceries, restaurants, and everything you might need within a 5-10 minute drive from the house. If you like to take walks the neighborhood is a great place to walk, or drive about a mile away to Gallup Park where you can walk around a beautiful lake and see geese, ducks, herons, snapping turtles, and all kinds of other birds. Come and enjoy our home! Please note... one of my children has a severe peanut allergy and is allergic to pet dander. If you or any of your guests smokes or wants to bring a cat or non-hypoallergenic dog, please choose another location for your stay. My home must remain peanut free. Thank you very much for the courtesy.
