Perched at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the Seminole Forest neighborhood of Fitchburg, you’ll find 2962 Green Crest Ct. This modified ranch house is striking — with its stone façade, fresh landscaping and sprawling front yard.
The driveway includes a side pad for additional parking — for family or guests. And from there, a stamped concrete walkway leads up to the front entrance — giving the home a unique and welcoming feel.
Just inside the front entry, there’s a white stone wall on your left that matches the home’s exterior. The open concept and vaulted entryway are the perfect complement to the white wood and glass staircase that leads up to the Master suite. But what will surely capture your attention, is the view straight through to the expansive wooded backyard. It’s as if those back windows bring the light and greenery right inside. Sitting on just over three-quarters of an acre, this is your private oasis.
The main floor is laid out ranch-style with an abundance of living space. Caramel-colored wood floors begin in the entry and continue throughout the chef’s gourmet kitchen and adjacent great room. The kitchen is outfitted with quality appliances including a cabinet-front GE Monogram refrigerator freezer, a Dacor oven, warming drawer, and microwave, a GE downdraft cooktop, and a Bosch dishwasher. The birch cabinetry gives the room a feeling of warmth — inviting family or friends to pull up a chair. And that’s certainly possible with the oversized island breakfast bar large enough to seat four comfortably. There are two pantries and soft-close drawers for kitchen convenience. But the granite countertops, tiled backsplash, and a double-deep bump-out window above the sink overlooking the backyard patio and pool, are what provide the room’s beauty. Another large bump-out window behind the breakfast bar supplies additional natural light to the area. And for the cook? The efficient layout and oversized counter prep space here make this an easy place to cook everything from a six-course gourmet meal to a simple pot of mac & cheese.
The great room is light and bright, with vaulted ceilings and a stone gas fireplace. There is a built-in dry-bar with a locking liquor cabinet, wine bar storage shelves, and space for a 60” TV. Just off the great room, you’ll find another room perfect for a den or office. The vaulted ceiling, skylight and large windows make this room an inviting place for work or relaxation.
Next to the kitchen, toward the back of the house, there’s a formal dining room with built-in buffet storage conveniently placed in two corners of the room. And just beyond the dining area, you’ll find a giant sunroom. Light and bright, the many windows overlook the backyard patio, pool and play space. This room has its own heating and cooling — adding to the home’s energy efficiency. Built-in shelving is spacious enough to hold a large TV — making this the perfect place to gather for family movie night — or a neighborhood football-watching party.
Out back, there’s a pool — complete with a long slide — and enough patio space for grilling, outdoor dining, lounging in a pool chair, or gathering around the fire pit area. Beyond that, a fully-fenced-in yard with landscape lighting, offers a large expanse of grass for lawn games, a swing set, play station — or space to let your dog burn off a little energy. There’s even a horse shoe area to the side of the garage.
There are two bedrooms on the main floor — perfect for kids or guests. The first, in the front of the house has a large window and closet space. One door down, you’ll find the freshly-painted main-floor bathroom, with brass fixtures, granite countertop, drop-in sink, and tub/shower combination. Continuing on, the second main-floor bedroom is decorated with white enamel trim and features a custom closet with organizer.
The back entry has a large closet and row of hooks for coats and backpacks. This leads out to the 2-car garage with its coated epoxy texturized flooring, oversized height, and built-in storage shelves.
Back inside, it’s time for a walk upstairs to check out the master suite. In fact, this is the only thing you’ll find on the second floor. The bedroom is large and airy, with corner windows, high ceilings and white enamel trim. There’s a huge walk-in closet with built-in drawers and shelving for easy storage. The oversized master bath has a long granite counter and walk-in shower. The master suite is a great place to relax after a long day.
Moving back down a couple floors to the walk-out lower level basement, you’ll find several more rooms of finished living space. There’s a large open room that opens to a slightly smaller area — making this the perfect TV room/rec room/family room and kids’ playroom space. From here, a walk-out door opens to the side of the house near the backyard. New gray carpeting leading down the stairs and into this room, combines nicely with the white trimmed woodwork, for a warm and airy feel. The family room is also equipped with plumbing for the addition of a wet bar for your own convenience or entertaining.
The lower level bathroom features an oversized mirror, walk-in shower, cubby linen storage, a lift-up bench for additional storage, and convenient pegs for beach and bath towels alike.
Also downstairs, you’ll find a large laundry/craft room. There’s a long counter perfect for folding laundry or making crafts! A Samsung SmartCare washer and dryer make doing laundry a breeze. And attached to the laundry room, is a workout room with an oversized mirror and TV hook-up.
Across the hall, there’s another room that can be used for storage of tools, crafts and more. This is finished space with built-in shelves, countertops and cabinets. Another storage room with shelves, and a furnace/mechanical room complete the lower level.
Located in Seminole Forest, just a few blocks from McKee Rd. (Hwy PD), this house is within easy access of Seminole Hwy, Verona Rd., Fish Hatchery Rd. and the Beltline. There are numerous restaurants, banks and grocery stores nearby, as well as both Target and Walgreen’s. Seminole Forest is in the Verona School District but serves Fitchburg residents with Stoner Prairie Elementary and Savannah Oaks Middle Schools close by on Lacy Rd. Seminole Glen Park offer plenty of play space for the kids — and even with your own backyard pool, the nearby Seminole Pool is appealing with its swim lessons and summer youth swim team. The Fitchburg library is just south on Lacy Rd. You can easily stop by the Farmer’s Market or take a walk or bike ride on one of the area bike paths.
This is a great family home. Why not make it yours?
