A light-filled & lovingly maintained home on 5.8 acres, located just 10 minutes to downtown Traverse City! Enjoy the space & privacy afforded by the acreage, while still being in close proximity to amenities, schools & downtown. The open concept main level includes vaulted ceilings, two sliding doors leading out to a porch and a wall of windows which let in plenty of natural light. Kitchen finishes include granite counters with a leathered finish and custom stonework on the bar, along with ample cabinet space. Two spacious main floors bedrooms plus a full bath. Upstairs is the deluxe primary suite, with a nearly 20’X17’ bedroom, walk-in closet and full bathroom. Off of the bedroom is a landing area overlooking the main level below, which could work as a home office space or cozy reading nook. The unfinished walkout basement currently provides amazing storage space, or it could be finished out for an additional 1,200+ square feet of finished living space. Outside, you have a nice mix of open/grassy yard space and mature hardwoods surrounding the home. Other highlights: a whole house generator and an outside wood boiler (a secondary heating method, in addition to the forced air propane heat). NOTE: The official street name on public record is "Ruben" Lane, but the street sign says "Rubin" Lane. If using a mapping app to find the property, you need to use "Rubin" Lane. Ruben Lane is privately maintained. Plowing/road maintenance cost is shared between property owners. No HOA.
