Impeccably appointed, beautifully renovated in all the right places and turnkey ready, this versatile five-bedroom home does not disappoint.

A gracious fireside living room and elegant formal dining room are de rigueur for fine entertaining in the home, each with generous windows, immaculate hardwood floors and crown moldings. French doors from the dining room open to an idyllic screened porch with bluestone floor and mahogany stained vaulted bead board ceilings that promises enjoyable extended dining and relaxation. A secluded Cording-designed rear bluestone patio lies beyond, framed with handsome stone knee walls set against a backdrop of wooded vistas.

The family room was renovated in 2016, tastefully finished in white-washed pine paneling, with a wood-burning fireplace embedded in a rustic brick wall, built-in shelving and in-ceiling speakers. The Christopher Peacock-designed kitchen ensures high-quality components throughout, with soft white cabinetry hand-painted on site, honed granite countertops, professional-grade appliances, a center island with bar sink and seating, and more.

The spacious master suite resides on the second level, featuring walk-in and double closets and a master bath, fully renovated in 2016, with frameless shower, marble floors and quartz-topped vanity. Two additional bedrooms each have double closets and hardwood floors. A full hall bath with tub shower, fully renovated at the same time, features tastefully selected stone work and serves the two bedrooms. 

Space is not spared in two additional sprawling bedrooms privately located on the third floor, with generous closets and anchored on pristine neutral wall-to-wall carpeting. There is also a large hall bath with tub shower, a large storage room and access to attic storage. 

The garden level of the home offers direct access from an oversized attached two-car garage and parking court, complete with a light-filled large laundry room and bonus area, plus a half bath. 

Revel in the pleasure of the homes' versatility, with additional leisure space on its own level in the lower level recreation room, handsomely finished in natural pine bead board paneled walls with custom built-in media cabinetry, a separate built-in desk with shelving and outfitted with in-ceiling speakers and AV wiring for 7.1 surround sound. There are plenty of closets for added convenience. Notable extra enhancements include exterior painting, 2" wood window blinds throughout and Andersen windows, all new in 2016, new HVAC (2017), a 16-zone irrigation sprinkler system, and more.

There is quality and beauty in all things valued -- you will find both on 40 Dale Drive in Summit.
