About the property

A 4250sf home with 4BR/4BA, pool table, firepit.

One of the finest homes in the Galena Territory, this one of a kind 4250sf home has the luxury, elegance and features you can’t find anywhere else. With 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 4 separate living areas and 4 decks, this is the home “4” you! Windows and light abound everywhere you turn in this brand new home on a 2.5 acre lot with beautiful trees and a fire pit for those relaxing outdoor evenings. Inside, exceptional furnishings and decorating provide the perfect setting to make your stay special.

When you enter the home, the lofted ceilings in the living room complement the stunning wood and granite trim surrounding the fireplace and walls. Beautiful hardwood floors are found in the living room and the adjacent kitchen and dining areas. A separate living area on the other side of the main level provides a place to watch television, enjoy the view from the many windows, or walk out to either of the two main level exterior decks, one of which has a gas grill. The kitchen in this home, which offers an adjacent dining area, will please even the most demanding chef. With custom Bader cabinetry, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances – including a five burner cooktop – there is enough room in this kitchen for everyone. A generous Master bedroom is also found on the main level. It features a king bed, a walk-in closet and an elegant master bath with a free standing claw-footed tub, a walk-in tiled shower with dual shower heads, and two vanity sinks. The master bedroom also offers a television and sliding door access to an exterior deck.

The upper level has a spacious living area that is bright and airy with windows all around. It features a queen sofa sleeper, a quiet area with a desk to work (if you must!) and 2 queen bedrooms and 2 baths, each with a private exterior deck. One of these bedrooms has a television. The laundry area is conveniently and discretely located on this level as well.

The walk-out lower level is as bright and airy as the rest of the home, with a multitude of windows that literally bring the outside in. This huge living space is arranged into four areas that provide something for everyone to do. The media area offers a large screen television and plenty of comfortable seating. Then there are three game areas, one with a pool table, another with a foosball table, and yet another with a game table. There is also another queen bedroom and large bath on this level.

Some of this home’s other features include cable television with free movie channels, a DVD player, dedicated wireless internet, and free access to the swimming pools, fitness center, and other amenities found at the Galena Territory Owner’s Club.

Property was very well taken care of. Plenty of everything to meet our needs.

  • 5 of 5

The house had plenty of room for each of us. There was lots of room to spread out. The kitchen was well equipped for all our needs. The view from all the gorgeous womdows was great. The only thing we would ask of the owners is to replace some of the bedspreads. We are definitely going to rent this place again.

The house was beautiful and very relaxing a home away from home. Only bad thing was the poor internet connection but over all we truly enjoyed ourselves.

Owner's Response: Thanks for letting us know about the problems with the internet and we're sorry it wasn't a good connection! We called the cable company this morning and they'll be out to look at it tomorrow. We might have been able to help during the stay, so we encourage all guests to contact us if anything isn't working well. These are wonderful people to rent a home to! They left it very clean and orderly. We hope they'll choose our home again.

Beautiful House Funky WIFI

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful house. The place is up to date and beautifully furnished

We had problem started the gas fireplace and someone showed up within an hour to correct the problem

Our only reservation was that the WIFI kept going out. It would perfect if that was fixed

Owner's Response: What a great guest! It was our pleasure to get the fireplace going for them quickly. The WIFI issue was caused by the cable company. I have the same service and I was frustrated too!
