This turnkey custom Colonial Split delivers on every level, tastefully remodeled throughout with today's finishes and colors. Enhancements since 2010 include a new kitchen, master bath, hall bath, windows, lower level flooring, roof, furnace, water heater and more. 

Step into a sun-filled living room with custom moldings and hardwood floors. An attractive focal wood burning fireplace and an expanse of generous casement windows add light and warmth to this inviting room, with a wide entry that flows into the formal dining room with bay-windowed views, ideal for seamless formal entertaining.

French doors from the dining room open to what is the heart of the home--an open concept kitchen and family room that spans the rear--perfectly designed for today's easy living. Three walls of windows illuminate the spacious family room, breakfast area and kitchen. Indoor living transitions to the outdoors from the kitchen to a large rear deck, paver patio and deep level private property dotted with beautiful perennials set against a backdrop of woodlands. Soft cream cabinetry with under mount lighting, granite countertops, Travertine-style tile backsplash and quality stainless steel appliances define the designer kitchen, complete with a breakfast peninsula and extra seating. 

Two pristine bedrooms on the second level include the spacious master bedroom suite set on hardwood floors, with double closet and renovated master bath with oversized frameless shower. The second bedroom features a wall of built-in shelves and desk, with generous closets, light from windows on two sides, and a full hall bath with attractive wainscoting and tub shower. Three hall closets and pull-down stairs to attic space afford plenty of extra storage. 

A lovely third bedroom with two deep closets is privately set on its own level, and provides a quiet haven for guests, if desired. 

The walk-out garden level recreation room is its own wonderfully defined space and is separate from the other levels, with built-in bookcases, neutral wall-to-wall carpeting, lots of natural light and door to a secluded paver patio. An attached oversized one-car garage with storage area offers convenient, direct entry into the home. 

The spacious lower level is tastefully finished with new ceramic wood-style floors and includes a home office with shelving, a laundry area, a full bath with shower and nearby utility room. A versatile bonus room with closets provides the homebuyer with attractive options for use.

There's lots to love on every level of this home, beautifully designed to suit whatever lifestyle you choose. So step in and dare to dream!
