It turns out that the staycation home obsession has remarkable, well, staying power. The latest estate to hit the market and capture the retreat-at-home concept arrives in Clearcreek Township, Ohio, just 30 minutes south of Dayton.
Set on over 40 acres, the modern French Country estate has transportive qualities, making “you feel as if you have just entered a different world and way of living,” describes listing agent Jamie Wilson of Coldwell Banker Heritage in Centerville, Ohio. Wilson’s sentiments are reinforced by your first experience with the property. As you pass through stone gates, you travel down a private 700-foot driveway nestled behind acres of old-growth trees and multiple ponds.
Impeccably designed and built in 2016, the sweeping 8,483 square-foot property immediately whisks you away to a place of seclusion and luxury with a 6,900 square-foot main house, 1,200 square-foot guest house and machine barn with attached office. Details, such as Bevolo gas lamps that guide you through your courtyard, 100-year-old reclaimed front doors, and intricate banisters incorporating French Quarter horse head hitching posts framed by reclaimed barn beams, artfully blend to balance old and new. An expansive floorplan prioritizes the need for casual family living and sophisticated entertaining spaces, ensuring both comfort and practicality. An expansive entertainment patio allows you to take your parties and events from indoors to out in seamless fashion, meanwhile, a lower-level game room keeps the entire family entertained during all four seasons. The chef’s kitchen celebrates a 21st-century vision of a farmhouse with Amish cabinetry, Wolf Range, and Cambria countertops. A total of five bedrooms includes the impeccably designed master suite with its two full-sized master bathrooms and closets.
“While many of the estate’s touches are historic and worthy of becoming conversation pieces on their own, this home is designed and finished with the modern, luxurious touches and infrastructure a discerning homeowner deserves,” reveals Wilson.
A long list of thoughtful amenities and modern-day touches ensure maximum value and future enjoyment can be passed down to the next owner, including an all-home IP-based multimedia network, 19,000-tile Enviroslate roof with an over 50 year lifespan, 600 amp electrical service, back-up generator. Even pets were taken into consideration, thanks to a stand-alone dog room with a dog shower!
“For the homeowner looking for modern design and finishes, coupled with history and architectural detail, you will find no other like it in all of Ohio,” concludes Wilson.
