Fabulous Gambrel Colonial Just Minutes To Town

An idyllic setting welcomes you to this wonderfully updated Colonial. The Belgian block lined drive curves gently towards the residence culminating at an interlocking paver patio at the front door. Upon entering, gleaming hardwood floors, impressive millwork, crown moldings, paneling and recessed lighting greet you with character and charm. The front-to-back living room shines with natural light through the many windows offering views on all sides. A large gas fireplace also joins extensive built-ins and a window seat to create a relaxing room in which to retire. A wide, cased opening connects to the adjoining, spacious dining room, which flows directly into the chef’s kitchen. Granite counters, new stainless steel appliances, a deep stainless farm sink, as well ample cabinetry and a large island with a breakfast bar and pantry functions perfectly for a busy lifestyle. A window seat, laundry area, nearby powder room and space for an additional breakfast room completes this functional space, which also offers access to the large rear deck, yard and pool beyond.

The main floor master suite sits nestled in its own corner of the home with sliders to the deck and a large California closet. The beautifully renovated master bath includes hexagonal marble tile floors, white subway tile wainscoting and a marble vanity. Upstairs, three additional, spacious bedrooms with multiple closets, architectural ceilings and built-ins share an updated hall bath with a travertine floor and shower tile, a quartz vanity, oversized glass shower, and white subway tile wainscoting.

The finished lower level includes a family room and a playroom, plus a half bath and plenty of storage and closets.

Outside, the level, one acre property has been extensively landscaped with multiple pear trees, sea grasses, rhododendrons, and plenty of perennials and specimen trees. The heated, saltwater, Gunite pool includes a lifetime guaranteed Stonescapes coating for increased beauty and decreased maintenance, and is surrounded by stamped concrete coping. A privacy fence borders the rear of the property, while stone walls and split rail fencing outline the property boundaries. The cul-de-sac location provides for a wonderful opportunity to interact easily with neighbors and creates a wonderful sense of community.

Hard wired for a generator, with meticulously maintained mechanicals and just minutes to groceries, restaurants, and all manner of shopping, this home is turnkey!
