The home located at 71 Bear Meade Drive is a 3BR 2.5BA Ranch that is one of the best, if not the best, in the prestigious Adult Community of Locust Hill. Located on a premium Cul-de-Sac lot that backs up to a woods, this home has lots of upgrades including a stone/vinyl exterior, a screened and finished Sun Room, and a finished, walk-out, lower level that includes an Entertainment/Game Room/3rd Bedroom, with a wet bar and sliders to a covered deck patio and backyard. This home is loaded with extras which you begin to see even before you enter it. For example, it includes a sitting area complete with a stone bench and a lamppost grace the walkway to the front door. And, the front entrance features a quality storm door and front door with sidelight and decorative leaded glass panels. Once inside, the Entrance Foyer typifies quality the construction found throughout the main floor featuring 9' ceilings, designer light fixtures, chair rails, and wood floors, all which extend into the Living, Dining and Family Rooms. The Living Room is formal and features large windows, corner ceiling moldings, neutral colors and a ceiling fan. Likewise, a formal Dining Room features a designer light fixture with medallion, corner ceiling moldings and its hardwood floors also extend into the adjacent hallway that provides access to the entire house. The Kitchen features 42" cherry wood cabinets, recessed and under counter lighting, another designer light fixture, a ceramic tile backsplash, a ceramic tile floor, a garden window with side shelves and a integrally molded Corian sink and countertop! The Kitchen is also cable wired for a TV (cable wiring and TVs are found all over this house). However, the most important feature of this Kitchen is its dramatic cathedral ceiling that extends into the adjoining Family Room. The Family Room features a gas fireplace with direct venting to the outside that is ready for you to mount your own flat screen TV over it and sliders to the Sun Room. The 20' x 11' Sun Room exemplifies the quality construction that is found throughout this home and features a bead-board ceiling with two skylights, two ceiling fans, wired for cable TV. A storm door from the Sun Room leads to an open deck with a retractable sun screen, a natural gas supplied barbecue and a staircase to a covered patio below.
The Master Bedroom features a tray ceiling with recessed lights, a ceiling fan and a drop-dead gorgeous, tiger cherry hardwood floor. The attached Master Bathroom features another ceiling fan, a tank topper, a Corian double sink vanity, and lots of ceramic tile. The 2nd Bedroom features yet another ceiling fan and I/O internet service. The main Bathroom features a ceramic tile floor, a granite topped vanity, and another tank topper. The Downstairs space is accessible from the Garage and Laundry Room and the back patio sliders. It is finished, fantastic and is large enough that it could be divided up into three good sized rooms. The Downstairs space features a great L-shaped wet bar which is, of course, wired with cable TV, a game room with a card playing area and a billiard room and a family area complete with lots of couches, an entertainment center, a Gas Stove with direct venting to the outside, and a Half Bathroom which could easily be expanded into a full bathroom by using the expansive storage area behind it. This downstairs space also features a suspended ceiling with recessed lights and with its open floor plan, this space could be further partitioned into two or three rooms and would make a great In-Law Suite. As is, it is a fabulous space which helps make this house worth serious consideration as your new home!
