Enter this peaceful oasis through a stand of trees to the farmhouse style single level residence with a charming covered front porch perfect for enjoying a morning coffee or evening beverage. Entering the main house you are met with an open floorplan with hickory engineered hardwood floors throughout, featuring a great room with raised hearth wood burning masonry fireplace surrounded by exquisite custom built in shelving, crown moldings and natural light from the entire back wall of floor to ceiling glass windows and doors. A portion of the main living space offers the perfect spot for a generously sized dining table. To the right the kitchen boasts solid surface countertops, custom cabinetry by Gene Kelly, loads of countertop workspace, newer stainless appliances, a pantry with access into the bright welcoming less formal dining area. Through a set of French doors off this charming space one finds an exterior dining area fully screened and attached to the covered front porch. An enormous laundry room fully decked out with custom cabinetry and a newer washer and dryer, a light bright sun room/den perfect for a cozy evening with the pets or a private reading nook completes the main living space. Down a short hallway to the right off the main living space is a lovely primary bedroom suite with direct access to a screen porch with a calming view of the back yard providing a comfortable respite after a long day on the farm. The welcoming window seat, full ensuite bath with quartz counters and dual vanities, a tub/shower combo and a large walk-in closet provide all the comforts to relax and recharge for the next big day on the ranch. Need a larger closet or bath? The floor plan of the home easily allows for expansion of the master bath and additional closet space. Two additional bedrooms with a remodeled full bath directly accessible from one of the bedrooms are located to the left of the main living space. At present one of the guest bedrooms with its wonderful built-in desk and cabinetry serves as an office but could easily return to use as a bedroom. A short hallway off the sunroom houses the half bath and attaches to a mud room with two exterior access points leading to the attached three car garage with a slop sink and heated storage space. Above the garage an apartment with a fully equipped kitchen, large main living space, oodles of storage, two bedrooms and one bath. Outside of the main residence the back deck accessible from the great room and dining space offers a stunning view of a riot of irrigated plantings including simply stunning magnolias, hollys, camellias, gardenias and azaleas. An ATV swim spa heats up to 104 degrees, with two jetted hot tub seats and a rolling cover to protect it from the elements when not in use offers a great place to exercise or relax depending on the mood that day. A simply adorable 1200 square foot guest cottage with wood laminate flooring, custom cabinetry throughout and attached carport with its own private circular drive provides yet another wonderful living space. The cottage features a fully equipped kitchen with solid surface counters, custom cabinetry, a full range of appliances, two pantries, a laundry area, a large main living space, two bedrooms and a large full bath with more than ample storage space. The landscaping around this little gem is also irrigated to keep the plantings looking lush and fresh.
Hopeland Farms is the ideal place for the equestrian no matter what your pursuit. Access to loads of trails is located directly through the wooded stand at the rear of the property along with own natural grass riding arena. The barn offers two 10 x 15 matted over clay floored stalls with direct access to small
paddocks located directly off the barn itself. These two paddocks offer direct access to yet two larger grass pastures. One additional lush grass pasture with a run-in shed allow for optimizing paddock usage through rotation. The center aisle of the barn is brick with rubber matting along with corn cob lighting. The tack room with an easy clean cement floor, wood paneling, hot and cold water and ample storage will work for any discipline. A wash stall with hot/cold water and ample feed storage will make horse keeping a breeze. Need a spot for your trailer or shavings storage, look no further than the covered storage area directly adjacent to the barn.
