Spacious Washington Twp. home ideal for entertaining

Two-story residence in gated community.

Elegant formal areas with bay windows, expanded casual areas connected by a second staircase, and a spacious kitchen are just a few highlights of this two-story brick home in the Mad River Hills gated community.

Listed for $489,000 by Sibcy Cline Realtors, the brick residence at 1949 Rustling Oak has about 3,460 square feet of living space. The house is located on a cul-de-sac with nearby guest parking and access to the community swimming pool, which is heated. A brick stamped driveway with extra parking pad leads to the side-entry, two-car garage; and stepping stones wrap around to the landscaped backyard with a stamped concrete patio and irrigation system.

The formal entry opens into a large foyer with ceramic-tile flooring and access to a half bathroom and guest closet. The semi-open staircase leads up to the second floor; and beveled-glass, French doors open into the spacious kitchen and breakfast room.

To the right, the formal living and dining rooms have updated neutral carpeting. The living room has a box window with window seat while the adjoining dining room has crown molding and a bay window — as well as access to the kitchen.

Granite counters complement the hickory cabinetry that fills two walls and includes a four-seat island with range. A corner double sink is below the windows; and a large planning desk is tucked near the dining room entrance. In addition to the range, the kitchen is equipped with updated appliances — including a dishwasher, microwave and refrigerator. Ceramic-tile flooring fills the kitchen and breakfast room.

A step down from the breakfast room is the family room with a coffered ceiling. A brick fireplace has a raised hearth and wood mantel. Built-in media cabinetry flanks the fireplace. French patio doors open out to a large stamped concrete patio and the landscaped backyard. Nearly hidden within one corner of the family room is a staircase that leads upstairs to the second-floor recreation room.

The formal staircase from the foyer leads up to the open loft-like hallway that wraps around the stairwell and is accented by a spindled railing. All four bedrooms, a bathroom and the recreation room are accessible from the hallway. The recreation room has a window, a closet, under-eaves storage and along one wall is a wet-bar area with an extended counter, a beverage cooler and lighted, glass-paneled hanging cabinets.

Next to the recreation room off the upstairs hallway is the main bedroom with a tray ceiling. Patio doors open out to a balcony wooden deck. Tucked into one corner of the bedroom is a gas fireplace with marble surround and remote starter. Double doors open off the bedroom into a divided bathroom. An elevated whirlpool tub has a triple-step entry and an elevated vanity has double sinks. A separate area has a walk-in, ceramic-tile shower with seat and glass doors.

A guest bath has an extended solid-surface counter with a single sink and a tub-shower with glass doors. The remaining three bedrooms have large closets with built-ins; and all the ceiling light fixtures have been updated and include LED lights.
