Listing Stats

Lois Schneider Realtor: Elegantly poised and privately set on over 1/2 acre, this five-bedroom 4,000+ sq. ft. custom-built 2005 center hall Colonial home is a classic beauty, offering space, luxury and comfort. No detail has been spared in its fine construction, meticulous design, architectural features and sophisticated mechanical systems.

A dramatic two-story entry foyer with subtly stenciled damask-patterned walls, raised paneled wainscoting, high Palladian windows and hand painted "sky" ceiling sets the tone. Gracious formal rooms flank the entry foyer on either side, featuring a lovely pillared archway into the formal dining room and an inviting living room set beneath a ceiling with romantic cove lighting. 10-foot ceilings throughout the first floor and surround sound in select rooms enhance the experience of living in this home. 

There's space, space and more space for wonderful open concept leisure living, spanning the entire rear of the home in a seamless kitchen, breakfast area and fireside family room configuration that is designed with today's homebuyer in mind. 

Light cherry custom cabinetry adds warmth to the gourmet kitchen, set against sleek granite countertops and stainless steel appliances. A large center island with seating and an open breakfast area provide ample seating for informal gatherings, with French doors that open to a bluestone patio with custom landscape lighting set against expansive rear fenced yard framed with privacy plantings --- ideally suited for extended private al fresco dining and entertaining. The fireside family room enjoys a "see-though" gas-log fireplace that opens to a handsome light-filled library on the other side with abundant windows that bring the outside in. Embellished with idyllic hand painted murals, custom built-in shelving, millwork, wainscoting, and a distinctive faux painted domed ceiling at its center, this room is a fabulous retreat.

A first-floor bedroom/guest bedroom is de rigueur for this home, accompanied by a full hall bath that has onyx herringbone patterned floors, an antique vanity topped with onyx bowl sink and a shower cleverly hidden behind double doors. A rear hallway with two pantries, recessed shelving, a laundry center and access to the oversized two-car attached garage adds convenience. 

An open second floor landing overlooks the foyer below and central chandelier with motorized lift. There are three generous family bedrooms with exceptional closet space, and a spacious hall bath with double marble vanity sinks and tub shower serves them.

A sumptuous master suite offers a quiet respite after a long day, featuring a private master sitting room with a tray ceiling and French doors that open to an exercise room, studio or office--buyer's choice. Included also is a custom-fitted walk-in closet, double cedar closet, extensive undereave storage, plus a luxury master bath with double marble-topped vanity, a deep Jacuzzi tub and frameless shower. 

The expansive unfinished lower level with 9 ft.high ceilings occupies the entire footprint of the home, providing excellent expansion possibilities for added recreational space, if desired. Plans are available to finish basement with full bath.

Attractive extras include two-zone HVAC, central vac system, central station monitoring security system with intercom, fire alarm and CO2 detector, underground sprinkler system, a built-in generator, a Summit mailing address, and more.

Step into the world of perfection and enjoy exceptional suburban living in this outstanding custom home.
