This beautifully well-maintained custom home was built in 1994 by Gurholt Construction, one of the premier home builders of that time. It’s located directly on the Missouri River in Captains’ Landing Township, which is a quiet, friendly community conveniently located between Bismarck and Mandan. The 1.07 acre property has 200 feet of river frontage which has been professionally rip-rapped in accordance with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers guidelines. There is a unique rock stairway built into the rip- rap where you’ll launch your private dock.
The entire property is meticulously manicured and cared for. It features an East facing private back yard that is completely fenced in with maintenance-free Jerith fencing. The unique landscaping includes paver walkways that guide you around numerous block retaining walls that hug the natural curves and elevations of the land as you stroll along the 150 foot pond system. You’ll enjoy the sounds of 2 waterfalls that flow into 3 ponds that have streams connecting them, all surrounded by beautiful perennial plants and flowers. There are 3 bridges that lead you over the streams, allowing access to the in-ground fire pit or to the banks of the river. Off to the side of the ponds, there is a small, finished garage/she shed that has electricity, overhead garage door and epoxy coated floors.
As you enter the interior of the home through the front entrance, you’ll immediately see how it boasts in its original, traditional charm with beautiful oak woodwork, solid oak raised panel doors, and windows everywhere that bring in a world of natural light. To your left, you’ll step down into the billiard room that is finished with wainscoting and crown molding. Next, you walk through a formal dining room which has a sliding door for access to the main level deck. From the dining room, you’ll step up into the kitchen, which has beautiful solid oak cabinetry with slide out shelving, a center island that has a sink and a Jenn-Air glass cooktop. There is a Jenn-Air double oven and microwave, a newer Bosch dishwasher and a Whirlpool side by side fridge. There’s a breakfast nook surrounded by windows that give you a clear view of the back yard and river. Directly off the kitchen, you take a step down into a formal living room that has a gas fireplace and french doors leading to the massive main level deck. The decks are maintenance free Trex decking with lighted wrought iron railings and they offer ground access via stairways on each end of the deck. As you leave the living room and head towards the door to the garage, you’ll see a conveniently located half bath. The heated garage has room for 3 cars and measures 1056 feet, has fluorescent lighting, water, 2 floor drains and floors that are finished with epoxy coating.
The lower level has 2 bedrooms, one with a walk in closet. There’s a full bath with a tub/shower combination, a family room with a brick, wood burning fireplace and a wet bar. There is a large sliding patio door in the family room that takes you out to the ground level, covered patio that features a centered, cascading fountain with flower garden. Off to the side of the patio, you’ll find a hot tub tucked in the corner, which is only a couple years old and is included with the house. Also in the basement, you’ll see plumbing for another laundry area and storage room and closets.
Upstairs you’ll find the large master bedroom and ensuite bathroom with double sinks, walk-in closet, a heated whirlpool tub, and a separate toilet/shower room. Across from the master bedroom is a laundry room/half bath with a laundry sink and overhead cabinets. You’ll make your way down a short hallway and step down into a den that has a beautiful wet bar with overhead cabinetry, recessed lighting and back shelving. Just off the den is a bonus room with a closet that could be used as an exercise room or a nursery. There is a large sliding door in the master bedroom that leads to the upper level private deck, which wraps around to a door that leads back into the den. This is the perfect place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the evening while you gaze at the beautiful back yard or just enjoy the marvels of river life.
Additional amenities include irrigation system, a huge garden spot, central vacuum system, Bose sound system, security system, Generac generator, expanded electrical panel and newer driveway.
