Property Description

This one of a kind, 6 bedroom, 8 bath home has it all on 4 floors! This immaculate and well cared for home sits on 1.5 +/- acres in a country location with a neighborhood feel. The owners thought of everything with this home and you can literally move in and do nothing! You enter into a large bright foyer with Brazilian Cherry floors that carry through into the living room dining room and office. The grand staircase and lovely arches greet you and lead you into the living room and dining room. Both very spacious and bright. Did I mention bright? This home has a ton of natural light and will feel just right even on a cloudy day. The formal living room has one of two gas fireplaces and the home has all the features you'd expect, like crown moulding, recessed lighting, etc. There is a large office on the main level so working from home is a joy. This opens to the deck for easy access to the pool and the private back yard. The triple French door leading outside is a highlight. Spectacular chef's kitchen with every amenity. Gorgeous cabinetry with quite an abundance of storage. Lovely granite island with plenty of storage including convenient cookbook storage. Double wall ovens with built-in microwave and warming tray. The cooktop has 6 burners and a high quality vented range hood. The kitchen has 2 sinks! for tremendous convenience. Very pretty lighting and tile back splash. There is a cool butler's pantry between the kitchen and dining room. This home is an entertainer's dream. The breakfast room has abundant windows and a really cool cathedral ceiling. You can access the deck and rear yard from here as well. I love the open family room. It is spacious and has the 2nd gas fireplace. There are two columns along with some additional cabinet storage between the kitchen and family room. This overall area is very welcoming and cozy for every manner of entertaining or gathering. The first floor is capped off with a 2nd powder room and convenient laundry area. The second floor has so much high quality living space. Lovely owner's suite with a truly inviting en suite bath and sitting area. Beautiful double designer vanities and soaking tub. There are 4 more bedrooms on this level. All generous in size. One of the bedrooms has it's own bath and there is a Jack and Jill bathroom between another two. There is an entire suite in the bedroom above the garage. Large sitting room and amazing room with new oak flooring that could be a bedroom, in-law suite, teen suite, or whatever your heart desires. This area is complete with a full bath and large closet. The 3rd floor is a massive suite unto itself. Huge bedroom, sitting area, and full bath. You can also access the attic storage here. Spectacular amount of living space! The lower level is completely finished with a huge and beautiful bar and gracious columns and storage. So many possibilities. Another full bath and yet another additional room. (currently an exercise room) There is still enough room for basement storage as well. The home has 3 furnaces and two Rinnai water heaters. There is also a radon system, UV light, and water treatment system. Wildlife abounds and the curb appeal is second to none. I can't say enough about this home! In addition to the deck there is a flagstone patio and a lovely fenced in-ground pool. (pool heater line is capped and there is no heater) Huge open yard. Truly your own private oasis for entertaining and peaceful enjoyment. Again, this home has a nice country feel but is in a community. Convenient to everything! The sellers have really done a lot since acquiring this home and really hate to leave. It is the epitome of quality, tasteful dcor, and functionality! This represents an awesome opportunity to capture your dream home before someone else does.
