And the Top Contender Is.........

So here she is...the "perfect" house......it's a Ranch with a Walkout Basement......the walk-out is surrounded by windows so it's beautifully lit....not dark at all...the 'main ' house is the same size as our present home....there is also a separate MIL apartment....the home is 5 years old and situated on 40 acres....there is a 1 acre man-made swimming pond with a little
'beach"......and more........all this for less than we are selling our 'house" on a 3 acre lot in VA!!!!

The main house has a 3-4 car attached garage in front...it's a 3-car but 4th could be sqeezed in ..maybe even more....the garage is deep so you could probably double up...then there's also garage that opens up to the lawn in back...for storing your tractor...lawn mower...ATVs etc....it's about the size of a 2 or 3 car garage...


then a detached garage with again room for at least 3 or maybe even 4 or 5 cars.....and the MIL apartment(where the windows are). The MIL apartment is a two bedroom with a full kitchen, , full bath, and nice sized laundry room... In the 'Main" house.....the mainliving space is upstairs....hard wood floors ...
Nice kitchen....everything is pristine and with the exception of possibly painting a bedroom or two there is NOTHING that needs to be done or replaced on this home...and really....after all the work we've been doing to get OUR home ready for the market...I like the idea of just moving into a perfectly finished home.....the only negative is that the bedrooms and masterbath are smaller than I'd like....or expected....
here is the kitchen upstairs...

the walkout basement downstairs features another FULL kitchen , dining and living room and a den or bedroom, and a hot tub on the back patio....
Then there's the swiiming pond at the bottom of the hill.....it's man-made...lined with limestone and clay...it has two aerrators(sp??) but the owner says they haven't even had to turn them on...the water has stayed clear.....it's about an acre big...19 feet deep in the center....there is a shallow end with a little 'beach" area......it's stocked with fish....bluegill, perch and trout......I can send CDR out to catch a few fish for dinner!!!!!




Behind the MIL apartment...is a nice patio with a fire-pit....
a cute little garden area...

and a Koi Pond......




Side view of the home....

Driveway...
all of this is situated on 40 acres!!!

Like I said THIS is our top choice at the moment......we need to sell ours to be able to make it happen, so who knows.....but I think we have definately decided on this one....until we change our minds...LOL

Hopefully it wont sell before we can make an offer..............
