JACKSON, Mo.

Whether you prefer tee time or tea time, this home at 1210 Wedgewood in the Bent Creek Subdivision in Jackson, Mo., is the house for you. It's perfectly accommodated for both.

This four-bedroom brick house sits elegantly on a lot that gives you a choice of beautiful views. From the front, it's a lakeview. From the back, it's a view of a peaceful wooded glen. And all around are well-groomed yards that are as green as the nearby golf greens that make this home perfect for avid golfers.

Inside, this is a great home for entertaining family and friends. From the friendly front porch that greets you, to the warm blonde hardwood floor in the foyer, this home gives an impression of warm, yet elegant, comfort.

The formal dining room features a brass chandelier, and décor that is inviting yet elegant. A combination of peaceful color, a homey chair rail, and elegant floral border give this room what it needs to host family dinners or more elegant dinners for friends or business associates. A large window gives the room a daily dose of sunshine.

The focal point of the living room is a beautiful gas-log fireplace that features a unique green marble tile and mantle of unique pickled stain. Much of this house has wood trim with this interesting alternative to the traditional oak stain found in most houses. Two large windows add loving light to the room along with a brass and glass ceiling fan/light fixture provides both gentle light and a gentle breeze.

The master bedroom also features two windows for abundant natural light, and a bathroom suite that offers a generous two-sink vanity, a large walk-in linen closet, and a luxurious step-in whirlpool tub.

This home features three and a half bathrooms. Even the half bath located near the kitchen is very tastefully done, with a large decorative mirror perched above a classic pedestal sink.

The kitchen is another joy, with ceramic tile floor, a warm grapevine pattern wallpaper, and again the unique pickled blonde cabinetry with elegant brass pull knobs. The countertop is a cool green laminate, that mimics the beauty of the outside view from the breakfast nook bay window. The window offers a peaceful view of the backyard woods for that first cup of morning coffee. A patio just outside the kitchen offers a great place for outdoor dining. Another unique kitchen feature is the built-in desk area, perfect for the placement of a computer or as wonderful storage for a cookbook collection.

The laundry area is very neat and well-organized, with cabinetry that matches that found in the kitchen. A large sink for hand-washables is another added plus, along with a window in the utility room for that cheery light that makes even household chores more pleasant.

Downstairs is a finished basement featuring an entertainment room with a large wet bar. A full sized bath is also found downstairs, along with a sewing or hobby room, and a downstairs bedroom.

The other two bedrooms of the house are located upstairs. Both are generous is size with plenty of closet space.

With over 2,200 feet of square footage above ground, and a generously sized two-car garage, this home is for sale at $244,900. It is being offered for viewing through Century 21 Ashland Realty, 334-0125.
