An elegant great room, a tavern-style recreation room, a cedar-filled study, a first-floor main bedroom suite, an in-ground swimming pool, a screen-enclosed porch with loft, and a spring-fed pond with water falls are just a few of the highlights to this two-story home tucked within a one-acre park-like setting within Washington Twp.
Listed for $795,000 by Coldwell Banker Heritage Realtors, the two-story redesigned home at 6477 Kings Grant Passage has about 5,200 square feet of living space on three levels. The house was redesigned and updated in 2000, opening up the floor plan, adding several built-ins, and taking advantage of the outdoor surrounding.
Formal entry opens into a dome foyer with hardwood flooring, open staircase, loft cutout and arched windows. Straight back is the great room with built-in cabinetry surrounding a fireplace. Crown molding has hidden accent lighting and columns accent entrances into the breakfast room and sunroom.
Off the sunroom is a hallway that leads to the main bedroom suite. Built-in bookcases accent a corner of the hallway just outside the study. Built into an octagon turret, the study has a wall of windows overlooking the pond, a built-in desk surrounded by bookcases and a carved cedar rosette at the peak of the wood-accented ceiling.
At the end of the hallway is the main bedroom suite with a cathedral ceiling accented by cross beams. Patio doors open out to a balcony deck that overlooks the pond. A fireplace is surrounded by built-in cabinetry. The private bathroom has a whirlpool tub and a ceramic-tile walk-in shower has multiple shower heads. A dressing room has a double sink vanity, pocket door entry to a walk-in closet and access to the study hallway.
Terra cotta flooring accents the breakfast nook which has patio doors that open to a screen-enclosed porch with loft and a dome ceiling. Doors open from the porch down to the pool deck where there is an outdoor kitchen with ceramic countertop and grill, paver brick patio, storage shed and wrought-iron fence. A paver-brick path leads from the pool area around the porch to the lower-level paver patio, waterfalls and steps to the pond.
Back inside, the kitchen has granite countertops on hickory cabinetry and includes an island, planning desk and buffet counter which has a sliding leaded-glass window that opens into the breakfast room.Cabinetry has glass cabinet doors and there is a built-in appliance garage. Windows are above the sink and there is a six-burner gas range, wall ovens, sub-zero refrigerator and a walk-in pantry. Off the kitchen is a laundry room and access to the three-car garage.
A formal dining room is accessible from both the kitchen and the foyer. The dining room has a built-in buffet counter and cabinetry. Hidden pocket doors allow the dining room to be closed off from the foyer and there is a hidden wet bar that is accessible from the great room and dining room.
Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms are located upstairs. Two bedrooms have dormer window nooks with bench seats and storage. All of the bedrooms have walk-in closets and private bathrooms. One bedroom has access to the loft within the screened porch.
Hidden pocket doors allow the staircase to the lower level to be closed off as the lower level has been finished into a tavern style with a dual-sided brick fireplace diving the room into a family room and game room with wet bar. Four steps down lead into the lower level of the turret, which is set up as an exercise room. Patio doors open out from both halves of the room to the semi-covered patio and pond area. There is also a full bathroom with a steam shower and a climate-controlled wine cooler.
