This beautiful two-story home is sitting on two pastoral acres in the popular Hickory Creek Subdivision. With a wraparound front porch and calming views, this home is the perfect place to relax, yet be so close to everything. This home features a two-story entry, living room, formal dining room, family room, and large country kitchen. The living room is adjacent to the dining room with tasteful decor and plenty of space for entertaining. The family room has a warm and cozy fireplace and vaulted ceiling. The kitchen has a center island with quartz counter tops, maple cabinetry and gorgeous maple flooring. All the stainless steel appliances stay! The breakfast nook has sliding glass doors leading to the large deck. The first floor is also home to a private study, guest powder room and laundry room. Upstairs there are four bedrooms, including a master suite. The master suite is just perfect, with a cathedral ceiling, walk-in closet and private bath. The master bath includes a spa tub, separate shower, ceramic tile and dual sinks. The remaining three bedrooms are large, and have plenty of storage. They share a family bath. The finished lower level is an entertainment dream, with a theater area, game area and bar! Plenty of extra storage too. The three car garage will allow room for cars and toys, and with a pull down attic ladder for additional storage! This is a perfect place to call home in the Dexter real estate market!
Dexter is a very friendly, upbeat town with many growing families. Downtown Dexter has the small town atmosphere with a lot of great advantages…local restaurants , grocery stores, physicians, and dentists that are high quality and convenient. Ann Arbor is so close by, it’s really easy to access even more variety in eating and shopping!
Our neighborhood (Hickory Creek Subdivision) is very cohesive. We have neighborhood gatherings many times a year, including a fall festival, summer party, and Book Club. Many children of all ages are in this neighborhood, and our kids have enjoyed the comfort of being able to go to trusted families homes very easily. This is the best neighborhood I have ever lived in, and will be very hard to leave it!
In downtown Dexter we like Aubrees, Terry B’s, Dexter’s Pub, and Red Brick Kitchen. Sushi Time is very good as well! We also like Captain Joe’s in Whitmore Lake, and Zukey Lake Tavern in Pinckney for outside lake dining. We also love the variety and quantity of restaurants in Ann Arbor. For the beer enthusiast, Dexter’s Beer Grotto is a fun place to check out, and the nl Tap Room is also a hidden treasure!
There were many things that drew us to this home. The opportunity to have an outbuilding is very unusual in the neighborhoods in this area. The large lots and driveways were great to raise kids on…lots of space to run and learn how to ride bikes. The small neighborhood allows for people to get to know one another. The proximity to the expressway is very convenient. There is always something to do near our home, we can kayak, bike or run in the local Metroparks. They also have cross-country skiing.
We enjoy the nature and rural setting our home is in and gives us plenty of space. Yet the proximity to larger towns affords many job opportunities. The Dexter Community Schools are exceptional and the community is very welcoming and friendly.
We have added a tremendous amount of landscaping to this property that really adds to the beauty. The pine trees all came from the Catholic Church property at Mast and North Territorial which was once a tree farm. Many of our closets have custom built-ins, including the laundry area closet that we have changed to a pantry. It would take a lot of time and money to include all of the upgrades that we have added to this home and property. Our home has a total utility cost of around $250 per month for gas and electricity. Our home is cable ready, and the cost is about $135 per month. We have a sprinkler system, which we love, and are on a well, so no added cost there!
