Spacious Inverness ranch leaves a lasting impression

By

Those who are searching for one-level living need to search no more. This beautiful brick ranch home on more than 2 acres in Inverness' premium McIntosh subdivision is ideal with its miles of hardwood floors and spacious rooms.

The home features a wonderful addition including a great room with vaulted ceiling, as well as a luxurious master retreat. The original master bedroom remains, however, allowing for two master suites.

The modern island kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and is open to the great room. There is also a living room, dining room and foyer on the main floor and a laundry room and recreation room on the partial lower level.

A colossal backyard with a paver patio, gazebo and water feature and a four-car attached garage complete the picture. Listing agent Chris Jacobs of Century 21 Roberts & Andrews in Barrington offers more details:

What is this home's hidden gem?

"One of the best features of this property is the more than generous great room. It is 35-by-22 (feet) and features a vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace and loads of custom cherry millwork. It also features hardwood floors that run through the rest of the home. It's a great space for spending time with family or friends, watching a football game or celebrating a birthday. It is open to the spacious kitchen and is always inviting."

What would your perfect buyer look like?

"This home works for anyone searching for a spacious ranch with one-level living. It works well for someone who may need the feature of two master suites, set on opposite sides of the home for privacy."

What is the coolest thing about living in this neighborhood?

"This property is in the very desirable old McIntosh section of Inverness. With its winding roads and mature trees, it's a country retreat with all the conveniences of suburban living."

Which television show or movie can you picture taking place in this home?

"The great room has that country club feel, so I would have to say 'The Big Break.' "

What is one adjective that you would use to describe this home?

"Rambling."

Any details about the yard?
