This exceptional 4,000 sq. ft. colonial was built in 2006 and boasts lustrous hardwood floors, elegant custom millwork and a thoughtful floor plan that affords wonderful flow for both casual get-togethers and formal gatherings. One hallmark of this distinctive property is the fabulous outdoor bluestone patio with a commanding natural stone fireplace as well as a custom stone barbeque area, with a built-in grill, Green Egg Cooker and refrigerator providing a sensational backdrop for countless hours of entertaining.
The lofty double-height, sundrenched entryway sets the tone for this beautifully appointed five bedroom home. The refined living room gives way to a gracious dining room, classically designed with custom raised paneling and built-in cabinetry, including shelving. A swinging French butler's door leads into a bright chef's kitchen. The delightful eat-in kitchen features breakfast bar seating for three, rich granite countertops, an efficient built-in desk and gleaming bow windows overlooking the backyard, with access to the magnificent patio, creating a seamless flow for indoor/outdoor entertaining. The kitchen harmoniously expands into the family room, anchored by a fireplace with a fieldstone surround, which is flanked by custom bookcases and cabinetry. A fully equipped laundry room and mudroom with storage, sit nearby and offer access to the garage. A lovely powder room with a pedestal sink sits just off the entryway.
A dramatic open staircase leads to the comfortable second level with a stunning master bedroom offering a large walk-in closet with custom cabinetry and a sumptuous marble bathroom, complete with an inviting Jacuzzi soaking tub, generous shower and water closet. Two spacious bedrooms share a charming hall bathroom and one additional bedroom, with an en-suite bath punctuated by a sky-light, comprise the second floor.
The splendid lower level is defined by a very large recreational space featuring a gas fireplace and a wall of custom cabinetry, ideally suited as an additional family room with plenty of room for game tables or as a playroom, allowing for hours of creative fun. A separate bedroom and full bath, suitable as an au pair suite, or could be utilized as a home gym. Ample storage space round out the lower level.
