Have you been searching for that irresistible, centrally-located dream home and think your options are limited to a few upscale neighborhoods with cookie-cutter homes and postage-size lots? Well, let me introduce you to a newly constructed, lifestyle property that is so distinctive…it will make everything you’ve been looking at pale in comparison.
Welcome to 10748 Hinman Rd. This pristine beauty is a 2400 sq.ft, 3 bedroom 2-1/2 bath custom-built home secluded from the road and nestled into 8.37 picturesque acres of unspoiled upstate woodlands. While you might think you’re miles from civilization with this much acreage, the property is a very short commute to Utica or Griffiss and near all the major access points to Hwy 12, NY Route 28, Route 365 and the Holland Patent High School (rated 8 out of 10 by Great Schools rating).
But that’s only half the story. The property has a one-acre orchard filled with fruit trees, a chef’s garden and beautiful walking trails throughout the property that beckon you to grab an apple off the tree and get lost in the simple solitude of nature. Meticulous design attention was givin to every aspect of the garden and orchard to offer extraordinary sustainability and enjoyment for years to come.
And, speaking of apples…you can almost smell the scent of hot apple pie coming from the gourmet kitchen. It’s the kind of kitchen that will make friends and family green with envy with its eat-in dining, Cambria quartz countertops, cherry island with large single-bowl, Blanco sink, overhead pendant lighting, KitchenAid 5 – burner cooktop with ceiling-mounted range hood, KitchenAid double convection ovens, tile backsplashes and custom white-maple cabinets with divided glass door accents.
Built in 2012, the house is a great marriage of two design concepts; one that is laid back and casual while married to a very modern aesthetic of connected spaces. The style…while very informal…also has a crisp, tailored finish to it that is a nice interplay between the casual and more formal spaces you see.
If you like entertaining or even quiet nights home with the family, you’re going to love the open living room with its elevated Jotul wood stove, high ceilings and exquisite 3-1/4” red oak hardwood floors. It’s connected to to the kitchen with its convenient butler’s pantry and adjoining utility/laundry room and 1/2 bath.
The utility room also provides access to the 2-stall attached garage and the 16×36’ unfinished basement with 8’ ceilings. The basement is designed for a future rec room with its utilities tucked into the floor joists to provide an 8’ ceiling. Plumbing has been stubbed for another bathroom in the basement.
Looking beyond the kitchen you see the connected dining room with it’s continued red oak hardwood floors and numerous windows offering great views of the outside with an abundance of natural light, making the room light and airy. There is even a convenient full pantry off the dining room for additional storage and easy entertaining.
Also downstairs is a beautiful master bedroom with its serene, peaceful feeling and extraordinarily large walk-in closet. The ensuite bathroom offers both convenience and luxury with its double vanity and tiled walk-in shower. The master bath has also been plumbed for a stand-alone future tub.
Moving to the upstairs you’re met with a brilliantly conceived space with a light-filled nook and a color palette that is soothing and really echos the views outside the windows.
Down the hall to the left, you’ll see an airy guest room with a conveniently located full bath. To the right, is an intimate baby’s room with angled ceiling and cozy accent nook with plenty of room for changing station, dressers and a large rocker.
This upper floor was also designed with expansion in mind. Much of the work for a 500 sq. ft. in-law’s suite is already in place.
10748 Hinman Road could easily set the blueprint for enhanced modern lifestyles with its upscale custom-built home, commuter friendly location, lower taxes and urban conveniences like cable and underground electric. Add to that the self-sustaining lifestyle amenities of your private 8-acres with numerous walking trails, a chef’s garden and a 1-acre orchard right outside your door and…Who says you can’t have it all?
