Mike and Ann Letsche of 1101 St Andrews Drive were very excited to be able to move back to Cherokee in 2005 and to have a home built by Ann's father's Company, Haselhoff Construction. "We purchased a lot in the Country Club Estates area of Cherokee located just west of the Cherokee Country Club," said Ann. The house is set on rolling hills with beautiful views of the countryside.

Formal dining room - Mike and Ann's home is a picture of elegance with it's 12 foot ceilings and pillars edging the beautiful formal dining room. The spacious kitchen has got to be a favorite hangout, having a great deck attached with a view often dotted with wildlife. There is space galore in the lower level as well for entertaining. You won't want to miss seeing this one.

The construction started in May of 2005 and the couple was blessed with great weather and a motivated crew. The move-in date was Halloween of 2005, one of Ann's favorite holidays. They have approximately 2700 square feet of living space on the main floor and 2000 on the lower level. The main level has 12 foot ceilings with crown molding, a large kitchen for entertaining, a formal dining room with pillars, and a living room with fireplace.

The main floor has two bedrooms and an office. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet and full walk in tile shower. The hallways have archways with ceramic tile throughout. The kitchen has a deck off of it which provides a great view of the golf course.

A guest bathroom and large laundry room occupy the rest of the main floor. The lower level has a bedroom, guest bathroom, bar area and large TV room with fireplace. A large storage/workout room and Mechanical room occupy the rest of the lower level.

The house was built with a ground source energy heating and cooling system, air filtration system, sprinkler system for the large yard and a three car heated garage. "We absolutely love the view from our home and enjoy seeing many deer, turkeys and golfers. We also

have a wonderful group of neighbors" added Ann.
