Nestled within the rolling hills and tranquil fields of an upscale neighborhood, this gorgeous southern-style mansion is designed with traditional elegance and stylish comfort. The private acreage development, just outside Blair, Nebraska, is the perfect place to realize your dream of living in the country, while being only minutes away from the city.
Step inside the prominent 10-foot double door entryway and past the stately Italian faux columns to find the grand layout of this home, beginning with the splendid great room. The focal point of this impressive room is one of the home’s two splendid fireplaces (there is also a fireplace in the hearth room). This custom-built, high-end home has the best of everything from cherry cabinets & hardwood floors to the Italian tiles adorning the home’s interior.
Surrounded by nature, this premier Washington County residence provides homeowners complete privacy with its two sizable lots (10+ acres). As you gaze out the double-pane windows, or stand on the large double tier deck, you will see open countryside – filled with trees, wildlife, a pond, and farms. Plus, the owner is permitted to have horses on the property.
The premier home was built in 2009 with 6,000 square feet of living space, including 3 bedrooms and 2½ baths. Each one of the bedrooms has a walk-in closet and a covered private deck and/or patio. The main floor master bedroom’s custom-built closet includes a center storage island, adjustable shelves, shoe racks and three-paneled mirror. The bedroom itself is a beauty with a tray box ceiling, oversized trim and crown molding. In addition, the regal master bath has a 6-foot round Roman-style soaker tub, and a separate toilet & bidet room. Just off the master bedroom is the laundry room, conveniently located with plenty of storage space. The two additional bedrooms are on the lower level and also have walk-in closets.
The entire home features state-of-the art lighting and a built-in sound system. The sizable lower level entertainment room comes complete with an enclosed audio room and movie projector/screen. Further luxuries include a handsome main floor office with stained glass double doors and an elegant tray ceiling. There is also a lower level bonus room (currently a photo gallery).
A surplus of storage can be found in the oversized 3-car garage as well as the mechanical room. The custom-painted heated garage has an epoxy floor, upgraded lighting and a home security system. This energy-efficient country estate features a geo-thermal heating & cooling system and 7 geo-thermal wells.
Every inch of this light & bright home has been diligently designed and well-maintained. The all-brick home’s exterior and lawn with underground sprinklers is practically maintenance-free, along with the extensive professional landscaping. Twenty-four maple trees lining the picturesque long paved driveway add to the home’s eye-catching appearance.
Living in this beautiful home you will find a delightful friendly neighborhood with a wonderful walking trail. The active homeowner’s association (HOA) hosts various events such as a Fourth of July party, an annual resident get-together, and a Christmas party. The HOA also hires a snow removal company for wintertime easiness.
Living only 10 minutes from Blair, as well as Interstate 680, homeowners have access to big city convenience such as popular restaurants (Burger King, Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches, and the local Nick’s Italian Cafe). Shoppers enjoy the Walmart Supercenter and Hy-Vee Food Store, both in Irvington. With the close proximity of Omaha, additional shopping is only 20 minutes away. This home is located in the Blair Community Schools District, and is only 15 minutes away from area schools.
With 150+ acres of parks, the city of Blair has a variety of recreational activities including numerous biking, running and walking trails. Standing Bear Lake & Park, Black Elk Neihardt Park, and DeSoto National Wildlife Refuge are also near Blair.
