“Charming, Renovated Colonial”

Fall, 2012 Listing


   This beautifully updated brick colonial sits on a professionally landscaped, level lot and has a lovely backyard with a pool and large outdoor deck. The home has had tasteful updates and additions which include a first-floor family room, a beautifully updated kitchen with new appliances, as well as three renovated baths, and a powder room on the first floor.

A stone walkway leads to a brick wall which surrounds a small front garden on either side of the front porch of the home. From the porch, large, carved double black doors open to a charming entry foyer with a tile floor and a hanging/storage closet. In the center of the foyer is a stairwell going to the upper level, and to the left is a small library with a nice wall of built-in shelves. To the right of the foyer is the living room which takes up that end of the home. It has an elegant center fireplace wall, hardwood flooring, and windows that overlook both the front and back of the home. Double doors open from the opposite wall of the living room to the dining room, which features sliding glass double doors that overlook the backyard deck and provide a wonderful view of both the deck and landscaped backyard.

From the dining room is an entrance to the kitchen situated at the center of the home. The kitchen also has windows looking out onto the deck which runs most of the length of the home. The renovated kitchen has numerous new features, including a lovely center island breakfast bar with a dark granite countertop, built-in wine cooler, electric stovetop with a stainless steel hood above it. The kitchen has all stainless appliances including refrigerator and dishwasher, a double sink, and double oven, as well as a tile backsplash, soft beige wood cabinetry, and a custom tile floor with soft, inlaid stonework. A separate breakfast area with ample table space sits at the far end and also has a nice view of the back deck. To the left of the breakfast area there is a small, renovated powder room, a laundry room with a sink and shoot, and an entrance to the two-car garage, as well as an exit to a small sideporch on the front of the home. Beyond the breakfast area, the spacious family room sits at the far end of the home, and features a unique, floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace with a large, decorative copper hood above it, with built-in bookshelves and cabinets on either side. The room also has a cathedral ceiling as well as recently refinished hardwood floors, glass atrium windows on the back and side, and a Pella door that also exits to the back deck and pool. The atrium windows create a light atmosphere, allowing one to enjoy the surrounding trees and landscaping outside, and inside a warm, cozy fireplace. The room is perfect for hosting movie watching events, or other large family or social gatherings.

The upper level has two bedrooms plus a master suite with a fully redone bath that has a Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, custom tile wall and floor, and a walk-in closet with shelves. A door separates the master bedroom from an additional sitting room with closets that could also be used as a dressing room, nursery, or fourth bedroom. In addition, there is a smaller hall bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub/shower combination that has been completely renovated, next to one of two additional guest or family bedrooms.

Adjacent to the kitchen near the front foyer, stairs lead down to a finished walk-out basement with an expansive recreation room that has a stone and a brick fireplace, built-ins, Berber carpeting, and French doors that exit to the covered brick patio/terrace, beyond which is the pool. The outdoor pool has a lovely surrounding patio, providing an additional area for outdoor entertaining during the summer months. On the lower level, there is also a fifth bedroom and full bath, with custom tile and a separate shower. The lower level also has a workroom, a utility room, and ample storage space throughout the basement. This meticulously maintained home with its spacious family room, recreation room, and patio/pool is perfect for entertaining and family enjoyment.
