With more than 5,000 square feet the expansive ranch at 96 Dickinson Road in South Glastonbury is an impressive property.
Serene would also be an apt way to describe the vibe at this rambling ranch in the countryside. It sits on just under an acre but is surrounded by another 56 unimproved acres that might be available for sale.
In the summer, birds chirp and sing from the trees that surround the home and the soothing sound of water trickles from a waterfall and fountain in the outdoor pool.
The property is listed at $809,883 by Fred Martins of Berkshire Hathaway Home Services
2790 Main St.,Glastonbury.
The property has two unique pools, one inside and one outside. The large outdoor pool features a slide, stone fountains, a cabana and an expansive pool deck for outside entertaining.
"The indoor pool is spectacular," Martins said. "There's glass tile in the hot tub area and Turkish tile around the pool. The owner spared no expense on the improvements, it’s all top of the line."
The home has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms and boasts a large and open flexible floor plan on its main floor.
Guests will enjoy their own private wing and private baths off two of the three bedrooms. The spacious lower level recreation room offers a wet bar, dressing rooms and a full bathroom.
Upstairs the commercial-style kitchen includes two Wolf stoves, double ovens, double pot filler faucets, an ice maker and a wine cooler, multiple dishwashers, a trash compactor and numerous custom wood cabinets that wrap around the entire kitchen.
You can eat your meals at the kitchen's breakfast nook or in the grand dining space, which overlooks the award winning pool and landscaped yard.
Other rooms include a library/office with custom built-in shelves and a living room with a fireplace. The oversized master bedroom offers a large walk-in closet, full bathroom with jetted tub and dual sinks. It also has a huge walk in shower featuring 11 shower heads, including a rain shower style head, and a steam bath spa.
From the lower level recreation room you can step outside to the large, gunite pool that features cascading waterfalls, water features, carved animals and masonry elements. There's also a pool cabana and a covered outdoor dining area.
