This is the best kept secret within walking distance to Notre Dame. This 5-bedroom, 4-full-bath sprawling 1.5-story all brick home which includes a mother-in-law's suite sits on 1.8 acres of wooded land with frontage on Juday Creek and is truly unique. The size of this Cape Cod is deceptive as it is sits modestly in a wrought iron fenced front yard. With over 5500 above-grade-square-feet of living space, every square inch has been meticulously maintained and upgraded since the current owners purchased the property in 1992. As you enter the home you are greeted by a front domed foyer and hardwood floors. The formal dining room flows nicely into the beautiful bright sun room from which you will see a large wrap-around brick patio and expansive, landscaped grounds which include a picnic house and covered bridge over the creek. The gourmet, eat-in kitchen with granite counters, custom cabinetry, and high-end appliances is open to the sun room. A rear foyer leads to the mother-in-law suite, added in 2006, consisting of a living room with gas fireplace, full bath with laundry hookup, and bedroom with large closet. Completing the first floor features of the left side of the home is an office/bedroom equipped with a built-in Murphy Bed and attached full bathroom also remodeled in 2015. To the right of the front domed foyer is the formal living room with large windows, wood burning fireplace and glass French doors leading to the patio. A hallway off the living room leads to the bedroom wing with a full bath, remodeled in 2015, that serves 2 large bedrooms. At the end of the hallway is the master bedroom suite which features a 3rd fireplace, vaulted ceiling, tall windows, custom walk-in closet, and spa-like bathroom with dual shower heads and a jetted tub, completely remodeled in 2018. A sliding glass door provides access to the patio. On the second floor is a fully finished attic that serves as the home's huge family/media room. The picnic house provides both another place to relax and enjoy nature from a glass and screened enclosed sitting room with the property’s 4th fireplace, as well as a place to store lawn furniture and equipment. A 3-car garage was built in 2006. The home is serviced by 4 furnaces, 4 ACs & 3 water heaters, all serviced regularly. This unique home also has storage galore with deep closets in many rooms and hallways. To see it is to love it! Preapproval/Proof of funds required for showings.?
