Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

Welcome to 12112 Garrison Forest Road!  This is your chance to own a piece of local history and be only the third owner of this fabulous, one-of-kind property.  Originally a schoolhouse -- The Gills School -- from 1872 to 1933, the structure was lovingly and sustainably restored and expanded upon in 2010. During the restoration, much of the original character and exterior style was retained and seamlessly blended with a modern, 'green', energy-efficient addition. Reclaimed or recycled materials were used wherever possible in the construction, from Australian Cypress hardwood floors certified with no Volatile Organic Compounds (V.O.C.'s) to carpets created from recycled water bottles. The home boasts several energy-efficient design features, including owned Solar Panels, Geothermal heating and A/C, 3 zoned HVAC, and an on-demand Hot Water Heater.   As you walk down the brick walkway to the front door, you will be greeted by a cozy side porch from the original schoolhouse & a modern aluminum metal tower.  As you enter the two story Foyer you will be immediately drawn toward the Floor-to-Ceiling Anderson windows that help flood the home with natural light. The spacious Family Room features high ceilings, recess lights, a ceiling fan and an entire wall of 8 ft tall Anderson double french doors (6 total) with transom windows above that provide panoramic views of the back yard and tons of natural light. As an added convenience, the doors and windows in the Family Room are equipped with automatic electric blinds that can be raised or lower with the touch of button.  Off of the Family Room is a full Bathroom and an expansive low maintenance trex Deck that is perfect for relaxing, having your morning coffee, nature watching or entertaining guests.  In what was the original schoolhouse, you will find the gourmet Kitchen, Dining Room and Living Room.  The open concept Kitchen features a large step-up Island with seating, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, a 48 inch Jenn-Air double Oven and six burner Range with griddle pan, a Jenn-Air Range Hood, Jenn-Air french style Refrigerator, Maytag Dishwasher, solid wood cherry cabinets with brushed nickel hardware, exposed beams and original hardwood floors. Off the Kitchen is the Dining Room and the Living Room.  As you sit and enjoy the Dining Room and Living Room you'll notice the lofted high ceiling that allows more natural light to shine in from the dormer windows and the cast iron Wood Stove situated on an all brick platform.   Upstairs you will find a spacious & separate Owner's Suite with an attached Bathroom, a Laundry Room, two large Bedrooms and a full Bathroom.  The Owner's Suite features hardwood floors, a walk-in closet, vaulted ceiling, ceiling fan and an attached Bathroom with a porcelain Claw Foot Soaking Tub, Double Vanity with Granite and walk-in tile Shower with bench. On the other side of a floating catwalk you'll find two large Bedrooms.  Both Bedrooms feature corner fishbowl windows, carpet and ceiling fans.  Just outside these bedrooms is the separate Laundry Room with pocket door and the hallway Bathroom that features a double vanity, tile floors and tub/shower combo. In the Lower Level, you will find a large, partially finished Rec Room, lots of storage, a half Bathroom and well maintained Utility Room. The owned Solar Panels are under warranty until 2031 & the micro-inverters were refurbished in 2019. The panels help to reduce your kWH bill every month and even generate a small amount of income each year from the solar credits. Outside on your 1+ acre property you will find plush grass, mature trees, young trees and landscaping to enjoy and a detached 1 Car Garage with an automatic door to park a car or use for storage.  The paved driveway can allow for parking of an additional six vehicles. Conveniently located near the local JCC and the Worthington Park neighborhood.
