Longstreet Hills Rare Opportunity!

This gorgeous updated home sits in the heart of Gainesville in the premier in-town neighborhood of Longstreet Hills and is walkable to City Park offering a great playground, baseball diamonds, lighted tennis courts and of course Friday night Gainesville High School football in the Fall!  This location is fantastic for anyone desiring a very close in location with the feel of being away from it all thanks to a highly private wooded setting. The tranquil back yard abuts a natural wooded are with a creek and offers a moving water pond feature, multiple decks and covered spaces for entertaining a large crowd or for intimate small gatherings.

The interior of the home offers one level living with a very efficient European-styled kitchen. There are pullouts and drawers everywhere making excellent use of space and providing an attractive sleek appearance.  Next to the kitchen is the large sun room where breakfast feels like it is outdoors thanks to wrap around casement windows bringing the woods almost right to the table.

Hardwood floors gleam throughout the main level in all the living spaces, and bedrooms have new carpet.  The master suite offers a newly renovated spa bath with beautiful his and hers vanities, a soaker tub and all tile walk in shower. There is a large walk in closet as well as an office that could easily be converted to a huge 2nd master walk in closet.  Down the hall from the master is a 2nd very spacious bedroom offering tremendous closet space as well as built ins with many drawers for an amazing quantity of storage for a secondary bedroom.

This well-planned home has a spacious study perfect for somebody who works at home and needs privacy and a comfortable space.  There is also a banquet sized formal dining room with a built in server. Just behind the expertly planned kitchen is a large mud room with hidden storage for all the shoes and bags to be neatly tucked away at the end of the day.  Adjacent to the mud room is an oversized laundry room with a utility sink and huge pantry cabinets.

Moving down the stairs to the lower level there is a very large 2nd family room with a brick wall fireplace.  The wood stove insert makes a beautiful addition but also serves as an optional heating source for the house on those extra cold winter nights.  The brick is neatly contrasted by the reclaimed wood mantle surrounding the wood stove.  The lower level living space is extended outdoors by the large covered patio accessed by French doors. The patio is all brick and provides a peaceful and private setting surrounded by woods and the sound of running water and birds tweeting.  Back inside there are two bedrooms tucked down the hall sharing another full bathroom.  Additionally there are three very large areas of unfinished storage.  One space includes built in shelving down both sides with a door to the outside for easy access.  In a completely interior section is a space used currently as a workout room plus a cedar closet and additional closet with deep shelves.  The third unfinished space makes a nice workshop area with extra lighting and a utility sink.

 

Outdoor living is a central reason the owners love this home. There are 3 levels of decks and a covered brick patio that make for lots of places to entertain family and friends. No detail here has been overlooked, and the water feature adds to the peaceful feeling with the soft sounds of moving water.  You will enjoy this space in solitary relaxation or with 50 of your closest friends, because it is an amazing place for both! Block parties or Friday night tailgates will continue to be enjoyed here by the next lucky owners.

The brick exterior extends to all four sides of the home which means this home has very little exterior maintenance required.  The roof is less than a year old, so this is a home that is both move in ready and truly needs nothing!
