After a major renovation in 2014, with great vision from the award-winning firm, Clawson Architects, and executed by one of the top local general contractors, Brinton Brosius, this 5 bedroom and 4.1 full bath home is perfect for the most discerning buyer!
You feel the allure of this gracious home the moment you enter into the spacious foyer with a turned staircase and in the beautifully restored millwork, coffered ceilings and warm hardwood floors you find throughout the home.
The formal living room and adjacent formal dining room with wood burning fireplace offer plenty of space for entertaining.
The bright den in the back of the home has 3 walls of windows overlooking the backyard and pocket glass doors, which can be closed for added privacy.
The dream kitchen offers everything the busy home cook desires. It features beautiful hand–glazed tile backsplash, granite center island with breakfast bar, custom cabinetry and lighting, Subzero fridge, Wolf range and Farmhouse sink. It also has a bonus hideaway office nook and a brand new powder room.
The spacious Master Suite has plenty of natural light and a custom walk-in closet with a window seat overlooking the backyard.
The spa-like bath offers a soaking tub, stone-tiled shower, double marble vanities, high-end fixtures, and natural stone floor.
There are two additional bedrooms, which share a full bath with double vanities on this floor.
Two additional bedrooms and a full bath can be found on the third floor. Additional attic storage space can be accessed above this floor through pull down stairs.
The lower level offers a spacious recreation room with high ceilings (perfect for a treadmill!).

No detail has been overlooked in this full home renovation.

This home offers ample room to relax and entertain inside and out. The beautifully landscaped quarter-of-an-acre property provides the perfect backdrop.
From front to back, the owners have spared no expense in renovating and redesigning the outdoor space. A bluestone walkway leads you to the classic front porch where you can spend sunny mornings relaxing and reading the paper with a coffee from the local bakery.
Off the kitchen, you step out onto the Mahogany deck (perfect for grilling!). A few steps down reveals a stunning paver patio with ample space for seating areas, including a curved seat-wall, perfect for those fall or summer nights around the fire-pit.
The property has landscape lighting throughout and the newly enlarged, 2-car width driveway with decorative pavers allows for ultimate flexibility during the morning commute.
