This stunningly renovated 4 bedroom, 3.5 baths Colonial with Tudor Accents, blends stylish modern design elements, open floor plan and classic period details across 4 levels of finished living space all tied together by a designer paint palette and modern light fixtures. (*Special thanks to designer Astrid Oyo of NoYo Home.)
The entrance vestibule opens to a large formal living room with modern stone front wood burning fireplace flanked by beautifully restored Tiffany Stained-glass windows to the right and sun-filled family room/ office with built shelves to your left.
As you walk past the formal staircase you enter the dining area and kitchen. The kitchen presents with a striking cathedral ceiling that creates a great space filled with two-tone shaker cabinetry, a massive 84x42 inch central island with seating on two sides and beautiful, low maintenance, marbleized quartz counters. The Chef in you will enjoy a 36’’ Bertazzoni Professional range and dishwasher, a GE Advantium speed oven/microwave and a full-sized French door refrigerator. There is a DXV Farmhouse sink equipped with a Touch-activated Delta Trask faucet, a stylish backsplash of beveled subway tile and a built-in workstation. The kitchen is open to both the large, bright formal dining room and the breakfast room.
Walk up the staircase to the second floor to find 2 large bedrooms, which share a large modern hall bath with tub and shower and a spacious Master Suite with tray ceiling, modern en-suite bath with double vanity and a large walk-in closet.
The third floor offers a spacious bedroom with treetop views, a third full bath, and storage.
The fully finished lower level offers a huge rec room with a tile floor and wood accent walls, a utility room, and separate laundry room. There is a full perimeter French drain with a sump pump for your assurance.
The renovation includes refinished original oak flooring with mahogany borders in the living, dining and Maplewood rooms and brand new matching oak flooring in the kitchen and the entire the second and third floors. New base molding, base cap, and crown moldings have been installed throughout the home while the original solid wood doors and door and window casings have been retained.
The three full baths feature high-quality vanities, DVX toilets, modern fixtures including Delta’s top of the line ARA fixtures, and high-grade Italian floor tiles. The glass enclosed Master shower features an overhead rain shower, wall shower head, shower wand and a six-way diverter allowing the use of any combination of these. The ARA water control adjusts for temperature and for water pressure. There is a double vanity with four large drawers and two LED lighted and mirrored medicine cabinets to provide lots of storage. The two top mounted sinks rest on a custom granite top that matches the shower base surround. Finally, the Master Bath includes Bluetooth speakers you can connect to from your phone and has a soft blue nightlight.
The hall bath and third-floor bath also boast ARA fixtures, Italian floor tiles, and quality vanities. The powder room includes a beautiful DXV pedestal sink and toilet with designer floor tiles. Excellent tile work is seen throughout the home.
