This beautiful, raised ranch home has been totally updated & remodeled by a master carpenter in the last 5 years. The exterior of the home is Shou Sugi Ban siding made in the USA. That is a Japanese process used to preserve the wood by charring it. The surface of the boards makes the wood fire retardant as well as resistant to rot, insects and decay. The sunny mudroom on the lower level opens to a large family room, two bedrooms & a full bathroom. Custom woodwork accent walls and plank laminate flooring are just some of the high-end finishes in this exceptional home. The lower level is heated by a Jotul cast iron gas stove & electric baseboard heat, while the upper level is heated by a LOPI cast iron wood stove & a Renai electric heater. The laundry room is located in lower level & the new Samsung washer/dryer will stay. A sliding “barn door” next to the laundry room conceals a large storage area. This home offers 3 spacious bedrooms + an office/hobby room which could be used as a 4th bedroom. The fabulous kitchen has custom-built wood cabinets, butcher block & granite counter tops, a farmhouse sink, & stainless steel appliances. The kitchen opens to a great room with a vaulted ceiling. Abundant windows let the sun shine in & capture the views in this quiet, serene bit of paradise. The house sits on two acres filled with aspens and lodgepole pine trees. Approximately 50% of the yard is fenced with easy access from the back door & the large deck off the upper level. The gas firepit on the deck as well as the gas firepit in the front yard will stay.
