This handsome home is classically Colonial, boasting an enviable center hall floor plan nestled in a private cul-de-sac setting, extensively renovated and expanded for today's comfort and lifestyle. The spacious living room and formal dining room flank the entry hall for elegant entertaining, each with oversized windows, pretty dentil crown moldings and newly refinished hardwood floors. Dual family rooms off the kitchen are a wow, and were created as a versatile open space. One is designed for an intimate fireside chat in front of a wood burning fireplace with gas starter; the other has high, skylit ceilings and three sets of floor-to-ceiling windows that offer expansive views of your own private forest enclave. The room is set up to watch sporting events or family movies complete with a wet bar with under mount SubZero fridge. Together, the rooms flow beautifully into one another, offering functionality and wonderful options for informal gatherings and optimum relaxation.
The kitchen is distinctive and offers a great space for gathering and cooking. It has cheery white cabinetry accented with pale sunset colors set against rustic terra cotta tile floors and a unique beamed, lighted ceiling of light Aspen wood that spans the room above. Walls are set in Adobe-like finishes with uniquely styled arched window surrounds. Hand-painted tiles and a colorful wall mural are juxtaposed with sleek black honed slate countertops and high-end appliances, complete with a seated center island and built-in desk/work station.
The breakfast area is rotunda-shaped with floor-to-ceiling windows and French doors that open to a secluded patio which serves as an "outdoor family room" that is framed with plastered knee-walls dotted with charming hand-painted tiles that are in keeping with the theme of the kitchen. Lush specimen trees and plantings ensure total privacy in this idyllic setting.
A generous beadboard-clad mud room is outfitted with custom cubbies and a wet bar that opens to an oversized attached two-car garage, offering easy access into the kitchen.
Generous windows illuminate four spacious second-floor bedrooms, each with ample closets. The master suite addition features a walk-in custom-fitted closet with beautiful maplewood shelving, recessed lighting, and wall-to-wall carpeting. The master bath enjoys the luxury of his- and her- vanities, a deep, jetted soaking tub and a frameless shower, enhanced with the pleasure of a personal, hidden fridge. A hall bath, renovated in 2012, has a pretty granite-topped vanity with burled wood base, marble floors and a tub shower. A double hall linen closet and pull-down stairs to attic storage complete this floor.
The sprawling lower level is a virtual 'home beneath a home,' with much of it redone in 2013. The space is comprised of a large, light-filled exercise room and recreation room with wet bar and abundant custom cabinetry. A fifth bedroom, updated also in 2013, and a hall bath with shower are ideal as guest quarters. Off of the bath is a sauna, perfect for relaxing after a long day. A spacious walk-out ensuite office with walls of custom Maplewood built-ins has its own private access to a secluded paver patio, and is an unexpected bonus. The room has a tile floor with radiant heat and extensive windows offering serene views of the extensive trees and plantings. With its adjoining bath and shower, the space has versatility as an in-law suite, if desired--buyer's choice! An additional circular staircase on this level accesses the family room on the second floor, as well.
Location, space and lifestyle...this special home has it all!
