Beautiful 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home w/ basement and utility house sitting on 1.24+/- acres near Bluffton, Indiana.
Three miles northwest of downtown Bluffton, Indiana, in the southeast corner of the Country Club Estates Subdivision.  Beautiful wooded streets featuring a variety of stately homes. The 2,900+ sf home at 1970 E South Timberidge Road offers a pleasant and enjoyable property, as it has been for current original owners since 1968.  Thick forest borders this property on its east and south sides.  

Beautiful oak door under the arched front entry opens into large 2-story foyer with 3/4 inch red oak hardwood floors and beautiful curved birch staircase. To the right, the formal dining room features wainscot and a great deal of space. To the left, the home’s living room provides ample amount of space to socialize after a family dinner. The family room has spectacular birch hardwood accent wall with fire place, red oak hardwood floors and a large panoramic view window to take in all the spectacular nature views. Yet another grand space, the heart of the home, the large eat-in kitchen. This beautiful kitchen features solid birch cabinets with dual lazy Susans and pull out shelving, newer hardware and fixtures. The 3/4 inch red oak hardwood floor continues into a nice seating area with a breathtaking panoramic bay window overlooking the backyard where deer, birds, and other wildlife are seen daily. Just beyond the kitchen, and off the 2-car garage, the practical laundry/mud room with storage and a full bathroom with shower.  

A stroll back through the foyer and up the curved staircase leads to a landing from which all 4 bedrooms are established. The very spacious master suite features a large bedroom and an unique bathroom, dressing room, and walk-in closet combination, dual vanities with one being in the bathroom and one in the dressing room. Bedroom #2 features a large space, closet and windows overlooking the backyard. Bedroom #3 is an incredible space featuring access to the floored walk-in attic and a view of the front yard and neighborhood.  Bedroom #4 has an overall fresh look and overlooks the backyard of the property. The partially finished, lower level features a large entertainment/recreational room that can used for just about anything, and an adjacent storage room that houses all of the home's major utilities equipment.
