Step right into this custom re-built home and see what the fuss is about.  Not much left of the original 1957 built home.  Major renovation was completed by professionals in 2002 and gave this home a new lease on life.  Everything is new!  This home has a floor plan for entertaining, relaxing, and LIVING! Located on 1.2 acres and just a stone's throw from down town Rochester, you'll love everything it has to offer. Many custom features including chef's kitchen with radiant floor heat, knotty alder cabinets, granite and above/below cabinet lighting.  The professional grade Wolf appliances will make you stop in your tracks.  6 burner gas range with griddle, Double Electric Oven, Warming Drawer and Microwave.  Cooking just became fun again!  Clean up with the built in double dishwasher (cabinet faced front so it blends right in).  The refrigerator is also cabinet faced and things like the toaster and coffee maker tuck right into the built in cubby.  Designed to be easy to live in, there is also a nice sized island with seating and room for a large dining table. 

Step outside onto the large back patio complete with Phantom brand screens with remote control.  Enjoy a cold beverage after a long day at work, or let the kids play outside without being bothered by bugs.  The 1.2 acres are full of paved seating areas, perennial gardens designed by Robert Thomas Landscaping and a large fire pit and shed.  

The complete Master Suite Addition includes a wall of closets designed by Custom Closets, and an extra walk in closet.  The master bathroom has ceramic floor, beautiful shower & custom Haas cabinets.  The vanity is spacious with double sinks. 

3 additional bedrooms on the main floor all have gorgeous Iroko wood floors.  One bedroom has french doors and would be a great office. The second full bathroom is located near these bedrooms and offers a step in shower and an AIR jetted tub (much more sanitary than water jets).  Conveniently located laundry areas are located on the first floor and in the basement. Both sets of washers and dryers stay with the home. 

Many upgrades include whole house generator, roof (2014), septic tank and field (2013), dual furnaces and air conditioners.  All Andersen Windows and Sliding Doors, Custom Landscaped by Robert Thomas, this is a one of a kind and a MUST SEE.  See below for more features.

Here you can sit and's truly an oasis in the city. And don't worry about the bugs, just lower the Phantom Brand screens and keep them all out! The side of the home has wrought iron fencing and a double gate so getting a large mower or swing set into the yard is a breeze.
