Listed by Lois Schneider Realtor:  Superb curb appeal creates a first impression that lasts in this stately stone front and clapboard center hall Colonial. Rustic ceiling beams soar across the fireside living room while a second fireplace warms the formal dining room, adding character and cachet for elegant formal entertaining.

A versatile first-floor den/sun room/home office reflects its charming provincial style, boasting French doors on three sides that bring the outside in, set against fieldstone walls and bluestone floors. 

Light cherry cabinetry reflects the warmth of the home, with granite countertops and high-end stainless steel appliances enhanced with a wet bar, a seated breakfast peninsula and easy access from the driveway and two-car detached garage. A series of Atrium-topped French doors along the rear breezeway open to a secluded bluestone patio nestled in the rear of the home. 

A generous family room and dining area with built-in desk/work station are the perfect place for casual gatherings and leisure living, complete with a custom media center flanked by built-in shelving, and additional access to the drive. 

The spacious second-floor master suite enjoys exposures on three sides anchored on hardwood floors, with a custom walk-in closet and a cedar closet. The master bath features an oversized frameless shower with bench, a marble-topped vanity and custom dressing table. Two bedrooms (one with a connecting bonus room) are served by a full hall bath with tub shower, while a privately set fourth ensuite bedroom is the perfect guest quarters, located off a back staircase from the main floor. 

The unfinished lower level offers plenty of storage, with laundry area and utilities. 

Well-located in a prime Franklin Elementary School neighborhood, this distinctive home is a must-see!
