Drive down the entrance to this country estate under the canopy of hardwoods. The beautiful and substantial brick exterior is your first impression of this sizable, yet unpretentious home. Enter the front door into the 2 story foyer and prepare to be inspired by the gleaming hardwood floors and the handsome chair rail and crown molding. French doors open into the formal dining room where sparkling wainscoting and large bright windows are sure to impress. Make your way to the den where arched windows bring in the view of the wooded backyard. Gas logs set inside the brick fireplace with its custom mantle will bring warmth to all on those cold winter evenings.
The kitchen offers plenty of counter space including an island that doubles as space for food prep and for casual dining. Ample storage is provided by the custom cabinetry and the large pantry. And the large powder room and mud/laundry room are conveniently located nearby.
The highlight of the first floor is the open and roomy master suite with its walk-in closet and study/sitting area separated by elegant French doors. The spacious master bath boasts ceramic tile, garden tub, walk-in shower, and dual sinks with a vanity/dressing table for her. Lucky her!
Upstairs there are 3 more perfectly sized bedrooms and a bonus room for whatever recreation or leisure activity you can imagine: movies, music, games, exercise, library, or all of the above! The Jack and Jill bathroom makes cleanup for the kids or for the guests convenient. Ample storage is under the eaves of the second floor through access doors from the bonus room. There is also plenty of storage upstairs and down with large closets in every room and hallway.
Now, move to the retreat for the heart and soul: the back yard. The rich porch features a brick floor and wrought iron handrails. The landscaping is natural and shows off flowers and shrubs perfectly planted for this shaded oasis. You will never see or hear your neighbors in this private space, just the birds and the breeze.
Although the attached 2-car garage is large enough for most of us, the detached triple-car, two-story garage/workshop is gargantuan luxury! You will always have enough storage space here for even a car collection or make it a personal workshop, a teenagers' hangout, a man-cave, or all of the above. You will not believe how large this extra space is and the possibilities for it are limitless!
This estate with its 5.4 acres is priced to sell. You will not find this much space, these upgraded amenities, this size of property, and this amazing garage/workshop space in this kind of idyllic setting at a lower price. Imagining yourself in a new home? Try this one on for size and you will be captivated!
