Shingle-Style Dream Home Meets All Expectations

Tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac close to town, this gorgeous home offers the perfect flow for entertaining and all the space you would want via its four finished floors. With dark, wide-board, hardwood floors throughout, exquisite trim work, oversized windows, surround sound and transitional color palette, it feels at once comfortable and welcoming, yet offers an impeccable design and scale. Built in 2013, an additional $400,000 in expansion and improvements was invested into the home in 2016, focusing on the fabulous indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces.

Entering the home you are greeted with front-to-back views of the terraced yard beyond. The living room is tucked away for intimate conversation at the front of the home, while the very spacious dining room includes access via pocket doors to a handsome butler’s pantry with multiple cabinets and oversized drawers. The open concept kitchen and family room are the heart of the residence and offer multiple French doors to the expansive outdoor patio and pool area. The impressive gourmet kitchen itself is second-to-none and includes top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances such as a Capital gas range with double ovens, 6-burners and a griddle; a pot filler; range hood; Liebherr refrigerator; Bosch dishwasher; two additional refrigerator drawers; built-in microwave and a separate wet bar with sink and wine refrigerator. An oversized central island features ample seating, as well as under cabinet storage. The family room features a coffered ceiling, incredible millwork, and built-in cabinetry surrounding a gas fireplace, creating a cozy ambiance on long winter nights. The main floor also includes a fabulous mudroom attached to the 2-car garage with multiple cubbies, a large closet and walk-in pantry.

The upper level of the home includes four well-appointed bedrooms all with access to an ensuite or Jack & Jill bath, plus a relaxing master suite with two walk-in closets and a spa-like bath with a double marble vanity, deep Victoria & Albert soaking tub, oversized shower and private commode. An additional bonus room on this floor functions perfectly as a second family room or home office. The main laundry room is also located here. The walk-up third level includes an impressive finished space with a kitchenette including a refrigerator, ice-maker and dishwasher, as well as a half bath and huge living room. Dormer windows add character and window seating provides added storage. Truly a magnificent recreation room, it could also function well as an in-law or au pair suite. Completing the living space is a lower level game room.

The lovely private and level lot is fully fenced and offers multiple stonewalls, plenty of mature trees and easy to care for landscaping. French doors from the family room open to an interlocking paver-stone patio and large saltwater Gunite pool and separate spa, alongside a built-in gas fireplace and seating. The spa has been designed and equipped for use during the winter months. There is a full outdoor kitchen and propane-fed grill for summers of fun, with a freezer for ice cream, an ice maker for summertime drinks, multiple refrigerators, wine chiller, a prep counter and sink, and plenty of drawer storage for easy entertaining. Smart home technology enables you to remotely control the pool, spa, sound system and security system. Just off the pool area, there is a pool changing room complete with a shower and full bath, second laundry area for pool towels, and shelf storage. A generator, underground utilities and a propane furnace add to the utilitarian features of this home.
