An area that was once a cornfield is now producing a bumper crop of homes. Experience Whitehouse Valley in Whitehouse, Ohio, where the cream of the crop is this home at 10635 Thais Road. Four bedrooms, a large lot and those excellent Anthony Wayne Schools make this the place to be. Come and see it this weekend!
The grand house at 10635 Thais Road, at the corner of Whitehouse Valley Drive, rises high above the horizon. Against a blue sky with little puffs of clouds, the home seems larger than its neighbors.
First impressions matter, and this house definitely makes a wonderful first impression. The exterior is gray vinyl and brick, with contrasting burgundy shutters. A large garage and driveway do not detract from the exterior of the home on this corner lot, the garage is a side-load.
Inside, the foyer is narrow, but the rooms that flank it are nice and wide. The entry rises two stories, with a plant ledge edged in oak and a mullioned window above. A brushed nickel light fixture hangs from the ceiling, and a closet is at the ready to receive guests coats.
To the right is the great room. At 23 x 15 , this large room offers plenty of space for entertaining. It is anchored in the center by an impressive fireplace a welcome addition in February weather. The fireplace is graced by a poplar mantle, marble surround, and a raised hearth. Big windows at the front and back of the room offer plenty of light. Berber carpet covers the floor, and crown molding is truly the crowning touch here.
To the left of the foyer is the formal dining room. A light fixture here, again in the brushed nickel, complements the one in the foyer, and a large window overlooks the front.
A short hall leads from the dining room to the kitchen. Off this hall is the laundry room, which has a large closet for storage, as well as access to the two and a half car garage. Across the hall is a powder room and to the stairway to the full basement. The stairs are carpeted and handrails have been installed.
At the end of the hall is the kitchen. Oak cabinets and white Kenmore appliances make this a bright, cheery room. Laminate countertops in a light tan coordinate nicely with the tile look of the vinyl floor. In the center of the kitchen is an island with a snack bar, a lovely brushed nickel pendant light overhead. Sliding doors lead to the poured concrete patio and the substantial lot nearly a half acre beyond. The kitchen also boasts a seven-foot pantry.
The second floor is reached via a staircase off the foyer. The first bedroom, to the left at the top of the stairs, has a charming vaulted ceiling from which a romantic light fixture descends. With a walk-in closet and close proximity to the hall bath, this would make a perfect room for a teenaged girl.
The bath has an oak vanity with solid surface top and a full tub and shower combination tin easy to clean fiberglass.
There are two more bedrooms on this floor one with a walk-in closet before you reach the master suite.
And sweet it is. The double tray ceiling makes this large room 17 x 15 seem even more spacious. A separate dressing area includes a generous vanity and a roomy walk-in closet. A door provides privacy for the water closet, bath and shower.
