417 CHOWNING CIRCLE, KETTERING
Walk-out lower level, kitchen, baths updated
Hidden under a dropped roof-line of this home is 5,100 square feet of living space and renovations that started with a main-level great addition, a redesign of the original floor plan and updates to the kitchen, bathrooms and walk-out lower level.
Listed for $475,000 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the brick tri-level at 417 Chowning Circle in Kettering sits on a 1.31-acre, corner lot with a three-car garage and a courtyard patio with a pergola and retractable awning.
Formal entry opens from glass doors into a foyer with high ceilings, ceramic-tile flooring and refinished hardwood staircases. To the right is the entrance to the main social areas, including a living room with gas fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases. Fluted, arched walkways and cutouts are accented by wainscoting and provide access to the formal dining room, which has built-in cabinetry surrounding a granite buffet counter.
The great room addition has a cathedral ceiling, two window seats that flank an oversized, gas fireplace. Flooring treatment divides the room as there is an island bar and wall cabinetry. Patio doors open to the courtyard patio, which is surrounded by a brick wall.
Tucked off the living room is the kitchen, which has light cabinetry, including a buffet counter and island. There are also granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, including a six-burn gas stove, wood-paneled sub-zero refrigerator and a breakfast nook with bench seating. Access to the garage is off the kitchen.
Three bedrooms and two full bathrooms are upstairs. The main bedroom has an updated bathroom with a tall double-sink vanity, whirlpool tub, glass-block, dual-head shower and an L-shaped walk-in closet with several built-in organizers. A second bedroom has a private bath that features a ceramic-tile surround walk-in shower with glass door and a single-sink vanity. The third bedroom is off the loft and is currently being used as an office. There is also a half bathroom on the second level.
The lower level could possibly be used as a guest suite as it has a single-door entrance off the back of the house. The staircase leads down to a family room with a full wall of built-in bookcases surrounding a gas fireplace. Tucked into one corner is a wet bar with glass and bottle racks. A hallway leads to a full bathroom with shower and single-sink vanity and laundry room with wash tub, two folding counters and access to a storage closet. A fourth bedroom has a double-door closet and a walk-in closet as well as a daylight window.
