This custom built ranch was just completed in 2018. It sits on over six acres of rolling terrain in the premier development of Equestrian Lakes and is 4500 s.f. with four bedrooms and an additional 1200 s.f. barn/living quarters. This exquisite home is built with the finest of design and detail to complement its majestic surroundings of more than 900 rolling acres, lakes, and panoramic views within a prestigious horse community. The open-floorplan boasts a kitchen with custom cabinetry, leathered granite countertops, and a living area with a gas fireplace flanked with stone. Windows are adorned with custom blinds and draperies which were designed to accentuate the private views of Equestrian Lakes' rolling terrain and private woods. Solid wide distressed oak accented flooring flows throughout the home with colors and design by Country Squire interior designers. Walls are embellished with wainscoting, crown molding, and stone, while solid 10x10 cedar columns are on full display with 10 foot ceilings and large windows exposing natural light. Even the home itself was ideally positioned with its porches designed to enjoy maximum privacy and to experience the full display of beauty. Step outside on the expansive covered patio that spans the back of the home with gas-hookup for your grill and fire table.
