As you travel down Ruxton Ridge Drive in Sun Prairie you can’t help but notice the wide tree-lined street and well-maintained homes.
And 625 Ruxton Ridge is no exception — although, of course, in many ways it is exceptional. The front yard is highlighted by mature trees that give the home both privacy and curb appeal. A brick-lined walkway leads up to the home, which is part brick and part easy-care vinyl siding. Outside-mounted recessed lights Illuminate the way after dark. The wide, covered porch combines both beauty and practicality for a look that’s totally welcoming.
Just inside the spacious front hallway you’ll notice the attractive wood-look vinyl flooring. And on your right, there’s a conveniently located coat closet. But the very first thing you’ll probably notice is the large great room straight ahead of you. The focal point here is clearly the fireplace. Framed by white marble tiles and outlined by warm natural woodwork, it is highlighted by a marble hearth and topped with a wooden mantle.
On either side of the fireplace, there are 2 large windows facing the backyard. These, along with a high vaulted ceiling, give the room a light and airy feel — the perfect place to entertain or curl up with a good book while listening to your favorite tunes on the room’s surround sound.
Just beyond the great room you’ll pass the laundry room on the way to the kitchen. The laundry also opens to the spacious 25-foot deep 3-car garage. The garage has plenty of space for your cars and outdoor storage — as well as an exterior staircase that leads to the lower level. Back in the laundry room, there’s a washer, dryer, and utility tub, as well as cabinets and a deep closet for hanging your jackets or storing cleaning supplies.
Next up is the large kitchen with its stylish tiled-look vinyl floors, oak cabinets and abundant storage, including a huge pantry. A corner cabinet holds a convenient Lazy Susan. There’s also a gas range and lots of counter and prep space. A breakfast bar that seats four separates the kitchen from an adjacent informal dining space.
The dining area is big enough for a large table and chairs and is perfect for a casual breakfast, entertaining, or for the kids to do their homework.
Just beyond this kitchen space, is a bright and sunny family room. With a vaulted ceiling, windows on 2 sides and sliding glass doors leading to the outdoor deck on another, this room has the feel of a large open sunroom. What a great place to enjoy your morning coffee.
The room opens to a large deck, with plenty of space for grilling, relaxing, or dining in the great outdoors. From here, you have direct access — and a great view of — the large fenced-in backyard. There are mature trees for shade and privacy, and a lawn just made for kids and dogs to run around. If you’re going for more structured play, you’ll find plenty of room for a swing set or play system. The fence has 2 gates for easy access.
Back inside, just circle back to the front entry and you’ll head down a hall leading to the bedrooms. At the end on the left, you’ll find the spacious owner’s suite with its large rear-facing window and generous walk-in closet. The double-hanging closet also features a full-length mirror along with built-in shelves and a bench for putting on your shoes.
The owner’s bath has a double-sized jacuzzi tub, a vanity with storage, and shower with double shower heads. There’s a tile-look vinyl floor, newer comfort height toilet, and 2 windows to let in natural light.
Another roomy bath off the hallway has a tub shower and cabinets for your bathroom storage needs.
The next room is perfect for a kids room, guest room or office. It has a handy window ledge and large hanging closet.
The 3rd bedroom is, again, great for kids or guests. There’s a large double closet with built-in shelves and a hanging rod. And out in the hallway, you’ll find another linen closet.
Heading back down the hall and past the great room, is the staircase leading to the lower level. Currently there is 1 finished room — perfect for an office or craft room. It has a large built-in counter with storage cabinets – and even a sink.
The rest of this level a huge open space — partially framed-in and roughed-in for a lower level bathroom and wet bar area. Glass block windows bring in natural light to the room, while maintaining privacy and eliminating the need for window coverings. There’s plenty of extra space down here for storage and mechanicals — along with whatever else might suit the needs of your family.
Simply said, this is a great home in a great neighborhood — both inside and out!
