The best 21st century amenities blend beautifully with the architectural elements of its original 1895 era, making this center hall Colonial simply fabulous.
This impeccably renovated home, with its high ceilings, oak floors, crown moldings, pillared rocking chair porch, back staircase and authentic outside gas lamps, was enhanced with three-zone heating and air conditioning, upgraded electrical system, natural cedar wood roof, copper gutters and downspouts.
The living room features a beautiful corner gas fireplace. The formal dining room has a ceiling medallion and original recessed china cabinets. A first-floor home office enjoys a bank of casement windows that take in the views of the level yard, with a separate entry from the outside private deck. A corner gas fireplace adds charm and cachet to the room.
The kitchen and breakfast area incorporate a lovely blend of light wood and espresso-stained cabinetry, with granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances, a seated center island anchored on slate tile floor, with an original brick backsplash over the oven.
A dramatic family room addition has 13-ft high ceilings and an abundance of windows, with custom built-in bookcases, media center, desk and pantry. The warmth of a Franklin stove is a reminder of earlier days. A two-car attached garage was added below the family room, as well as another new detached two-car garage with loft storage.
Two staircases lead to the second floor, with a laundry room, three generously-sized bedrooms and a renovated full hall bath. Included is the master bedroom suite that enjoys his-and her- walk-in closets. Carrera marble tile and jetted tub deck add distinction to the renovated master bath, with double sinks embedded in a custom Bombay chest, as well as an oversized frameless steam shower.
Two lovely bedrooms and a full bath with shower reside privately on the third floor, affording extra space and versatility.
A fully renovated lower level was created, with recreation room, play room, modern exercise room with rubber flooring, a full bath, two cedar closets and garage access. Exquisitely landscaped grounds frame the home, supported by an underground sprinkler system, lending beauty and curb appeal.
Well-located close to town and New York City trains, and situated in the Brayton Elementary School district, this fine home is a polished Summit gem.
