Please note: At the time these photos were shot, the improvement to the grounds was just about, but not quite complete. This spacious house is functionally brand new, including heat and a/c, windows, foam insulation, roof, siding, bathrooms, kitchen and floors. Built in 1975, it underwent a renovation down to the studs in 2018, with both the main floor and the lower level being finished to a high standard both in design and in the materials used. The great room really lives up to its name, with a cathedral ceiling that provides an air of grandeur, while not losing its cozy vibe. The seating area around the stone fireplace enjoys a view out a picture window, while the chef’s kitchen on the other side of the room has an island that seems to draw everyone to it. It includes a stainless steel, apron-front sink, and offers ample space for meal prep and for simply hanging out. The appliances are Viking and the tasteful lighting is a score in both form AND function.
Down the corridor is the first of the home’s three gorgeous, modern bathrooms, featuring double sinks and tiled tub/shower. Next, the beautifully-decorated master bedroom, which is en suite, also with double sinks and black herringbone tiled shower. On this level are also two light-filled guest bedrooms. No one draws a short straw when they stay at this house.
Heading downstairs, it’s a great surprise to discover such an appealing, sprawling space, which is effectively an entirely separate living room. Of course it could serve as a rec room/media room, whatever. Off this area, similar to the floor plan upstairs, the private rooms are set down a corridor, and include one more guest bedroom, another modern bathroom with tiled shower and double sinks, and a laundry room. Utilities are also tucked away in this area.
Most of the nearly three acres is set behind the house, and the glass doors in the kitchen lead out to a wonderful deck that provides a view out over the back lawn, the large fire pit, and out at the woodland beyond, where there are numerous dramatic and imposing rock outcroppings.
The attached garage is super handy for loading and unloading the car in inclement weather, and for storing all the country tools and toys one accumulates. Now if you’re thinking that a lot of the appeal of this house is in its STYLE, good news! The owner is happy to sell the contents.
