10 Country Club Place, Bloomington | $935,000 SEE VIRTUAL TOUR AT: WWW.IVEYWEAVER.COM

This is an amazing opportunity to live in a beautifully designed 1920’s home located right on Country Club Place! The home overlooks the golf landscapes of beautiful Bloomington Country Club and is situated within one of the premiere neighborhoods in our community. The property has been designed for entertaining, having three elegant fireplaces and living spaces for all occasions - formal and private – inside and out. The open kitchen and family room plan is perfect for entertaining and is great for informal occasions; and there is a lounge area (flex space) on the second level for relaxing or working privately. The lower level is finished and has a family room and a billiard room, which adds a wonderful living space away from the formal areas of the home. The formal dining room has beautiful hardwood floors and is adjacent to the spectacular four season’s room, with its gorgeous slate floors and large windows overlooking the private and fenced back landscape. The expansive patio is ideal for alfresco dining and the lawn is perfect for large gatherings and events. The charming circular drive adds to the curb appeal of the exceptional Normandy-style architecture, and leads to a private and heated attached garage for your convenience. The details just go on and on!
