705 S Deer Trace, Bloomington

Stunning custom estate on 26 acres! Come see this rare find in Monroe County! Cherish the tranquility -- just five minutes from shopping and ten minutes east of the Indiana University campus. The main house's double French door invites you into a large living room with skylights, vaulted ceiling, exposed beams, attractive wood floors and a wall of windows with a gorgeous south-facing panorama overlooking the lake cottage and spring-fed lake. The fireplace with insert is tucked into the living room corner so that it's practical and doesn't hinder the beautiful view. The roomy kitchen provides the space you desire for your favorite culinary activities. The center island features an electric range and prep sink, while its tile top matches the counter backsplash. Large windows over the kitchen sink reflect off the granite countertop. Stainless steel appliances and a large pantry round out your kitchen needs. The large dining room is offset by its own vaulted ceiling and vistas. An adjacent screened-in porch is a perfect setting to enjoy nature and a spot of solace. The three-car garage leads through the laundry room and directly into the kitchen. The master suite and two bedrooms on the west wing round out the main level features. Custom details continue into the master suite, providing a wood plank vaulted ceiling, large windows that bring nature inside, and a quiet deck for enjoying twilight or the setting sun. An extra-wide stairway leads upstairs to an open den with a bird's-eye view over the living room below. A room upstairs is perfect for crafts, a play room, or just about any other use you desire. The lower level leads to a combination of a family room, semi-finished storage, utility room, and a separate one-bedroom south-facing in-law suite complete with its own kitchen, laundry, private entrance and parking area. Outside, you'll want to walk down to “The Dam House,” a custom cottage with screened-in porch on the east end of a 1.75 spring-fed stocked lake and is a beauty in its own right. The all-wood interior features vaulted ceilings, natural light and a loft area . The woodburning stove will keep you toasty on the coldest day. The deck surrounds three sides and serves as perfect host for your loved ones. (Note: personal possessions are negotiable separately.) The last building, a three-bay detached garage, offers the final flexibility for your estate desires. Blueprints and construction details are available for the discerning buyer.
