Description

Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, this majestic traditional brick residence stands as a testament to timeless elegance. Offering an expansive 5,895 square feet of living space, this home boasts 6 bedrooms and 6.1 bathrooms, all set on an immaculate 1.25-acre parcel adorned with meticulously manicured landscaping and a welcoming circular driveway. As you step through the entrance, the foyer unfolds to reveal an exquisite curved staircase, complemented by gleaming hardwood floors, soaring ceilings, and beautiful millwork. This property offers a host of distinctive features, including an enchanting living room with a charming fireplace and a sophisticated library with French doors. A formal dining room, complete with a butler's pantry, sets the stage for memorable gatherings. The heart of the home, the family room, is adorned with a distressed limestone fireplace and a convenient wet bar. This space effortlessly flows into the kitchen, where recently painted cabinetry, granite countertops, a central island with a breakfast bar, and top-tier stainless steel appliances come together to create a culinary haven. The laundry room has the added attraction of a dog wash station. For guests or multi-generational living, a private first-floor bedroom with a full bathroom is situated just off the 3-car garage and back staircase. The second floor features 5 bedrooms and 4 full bathrooms, including the spacious primary suite with sitting area, walkout Juliet balcony, luxurious bathroom, and walk-in closets. The lower level offers an extra 1,000 square feet of beautifully finished space, comprising a recreation room, an exercise room, a game room, second laundry room and an additional full bathroom, along with plenty of storage options. Outside, relish in the privacy and seclusion of this property, surrounded by mature trees, flourishing perennial gardens, and even a putting green. This beautiful home has been lovingly maintained and is in impeccable condition with an extensive list of improvements (see list under additional information), including a new roof & gutters (2021) and new mechanicals! Don't miss!
