3158 SPENCE ROAD, PIKE TWP.
Sun room, deck enjoy park-like views
With walking trails, a creek, koi pond and mature trees, this cedar-sided ranch has a park-like setting among the 6.8-acres within Pike Twp., Clark County.
Listed for $279,900 by Real Estate II, the ranch at 3158 Spence Road has about 2,295 square feet of living space. The house sits well off the road with an extra parking pad off the concrete driveway that leads to the two-car garage.
A covered front entry opens directly into the formal living room. A partial wall divides the living room from the combined kitchen and dining room. Wood beams stretch the ceiling of all three rooms. A brick, wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece to the living room.
The kitchen has a buffet counter and double stainless-steel sink below a cut out along the opposite wall. Additional cabinetry fills two walls, and the kitchen comes equipped with a range and a refrigerator. Flooring treatment separates the dining area from the kitchen.
A step down from the dining room leads to a sun room where eight windows provide panoramic views of the back yard and woods. A glass door opens out to a multiple level composite deck. Along one side of the deck is a koi pond and waterfall feature while garden beds and stepping stones surround the other sides.
Back inside, a central hallway leads to three bedrooms and a full bathroom. The three bedrooms have ceiling paddle fans, wood trim and double-door closets. The bathroom was updated five years ago and includes a double-sink vanity with granite countertop, a whirlpool tub with shower surrounded by tile and glass doors and ceramic tile flooring.
The hallway extends the opposite direction past the kitchen to a fourth bedroom, a laundry room, a second full bathroom and ends within a great room.
The great room has a picture window with views of the back yard and sliding patio doors to the rear deck. The laundry room has wood-laminate flooring and hanging cabinets. A door leads out to the garage.
The full bathroom was updated about three years ago and features a corner shower with ceramic-tile surround and glass doors, a single-sink vanity and ceramic tile floors.
In addition to the deck and pond, the property includes an out-building, which has electric service. There is also an attached, screen-enclosed porch.
