BEST OF 2 WORLDS
3700 sf of Architectural Joy! This custom built 4BR/3.5BA story & a half home situated on 5 beautiful half wooded acres is country living at its finest!
The home is located in Durant, OK in a very nice area, on the edge of town. It is only minutes away from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Medical Center of Southeast Oklahoma and medical complex, great shopping, etc. Only 20 minutes north of Denison/Sherman, TX, about 90 miles from Dallas and if boating is your thing, Lake Texoma is just 15 minutes away.
This awesome home was custom built in 2007 by a master builder as his own personal residence. It is built with 6" walls. Nothing was spared when it comes to first class!! It is a wonderful blend of the old and the new, complete with many amenities that you just do not see in today's cookie cutter homes. All the kitchen cabinets are custom built, as well as all the cabinets and built-ins throughout the home, are solid oak. No apologies here. All the lower cabinet shelves pull out on heavy duty roller slides, to make it easy to find that special pot or pan. The upper cabinets all have adjustable shelves so you can tailor them to fit your needs. All the cabinets are custom furniture quality.
The kitchen is definitely 5 Star gourmet. A five burner Jenn-air cooktop, stainless steel double convection oven, built in microwave oven/vent, Bosch dishwasher and solid surface Corian countertop with monolithic integral sink. There is a large bar for kitchen eating and a country kitchen dining table area. The custom butcher block island is oversized and a delight to see. It would probably qualify as art!
The butler's pantry with built-in China cabinet and granite counter top is adjacent to the huge walk in pantry with an antique swinging door. It ties the kitchen & formal dining room together with grace & style, not often seen in homes today.
Just off the dining area is the foyer with 20' ceilings & up stairs catwalk and window to flood light into the grand entryway. Talk about a stunning look that gives the feel of a bygone era.
Proceeding from the foyer to the left, one enters the music room/office/library with a wonderfully appointed hexagon tray style ceiling and built in book cases. Then comes the powder room (half bath). Proceed onto two of the bedrooms and full bath. Just off the foyer is an wonderfully spacious living room with huge windows overlooking the patio/deck and backyard that is just shouting for a party & entertainment! There is also a beautiful gas fireplace that provides back up heat or that nostalgic atmosphere in the winter months.
The Master Suite is a luxuriously spacious 20'x20' room with a bay window, lounging area, gas fire place and trough ceiling. The adjoining master bath features his/hers sinks with granite countertops, a 6' Jetta whirlpool tub and a large no curtain walk in marble shower. It also has a large walk in closet with lots of built ins.
Upstairs you'll find a large bonus room that is being used by the current owner as a media room/home theater that comes with Bose surround sound system, built in mini-refrigerator, office area and full bath w/shower. This room could also be used as an extra bedroom as it does have nice closets too.
The two car attached garage is oversized with plenty of room for freezer and lots of storage area. There are so many features that it is hard to mention them all. But among them are a whole house network audio and video distribution system so you have TV, stereo, sound throughout, remote security system, remote yard sprinkler system, etc. Solid oak crown, base, door and molding trim throughout. Leaded glass transom that gives you the feeling of yesteryear and a Frank Lloyd Wright influence. Two inch custom made wood blinds & wonderfully delightful high end lighting and ceiling fans throughout.
There is a floored attic for storage or room to finish into additional rooms if desired. Beautiful multi-level deck and patio with full view of the woods. There is a wet weather creek in the woods. Producing pecan trees and beautiful landscaping.
If all of the above is not enough to satisfy your needs, there is a 32'x80' all steel building that is totally insulated, sprayed with foam insulation. This building houses a huge 46'x32' wood working shop, 20'x32' finish shop and a 14'x32' fully insulated room with attached 3/4 bath and closet area that is currently being used as a catering business kitchen area. This area could be used as an extra living area apartment. It was used as such while the owner built the house. It even has central heat and a/c. Wow! Would this make a fantastic man cave/dog house when you have the need to just be a guy.
I could write volumes on this wonderful home. This place plays second fiddle to none! Don't miss this opportunity to have the best.
