This charming sun-filled colonial with classic columned façade has so many great features: a sophisticated kitchen, one of a kind inlaid hardwood floors, updated baths, flagstone patio in a fenced yard and a location that can’t be beat.
The front porch with columns leads to one front entry into the living room and another entry to the pantry on the side deck, making grocery unloading easy. The formal living room has a beautiful patterned hardwood floor inlaid with 5 types of wood with a brick surround fireplace with mantel and marble hearth as the focal point. The patterned hardwood floor continues into the formal dining room with a huge bay window that brings the outdoors in.
The updated kitchen features stainless steel appliances, gas stove, European cabinets, plenty of quartz countertops, tile floor and a separate pantry.
The family room with hardwood floors in the rear has a separate entrance from the driveway and an updated powder room. A slider to the large flagstone patio with wall and a fenced yard.
The upstairs owner suite has a step down to that part of the home’s addition, making it feel like a private get away. It features carpeted floors, a totally remodeled bath with a folding frameless glass shower door and upgraded tile and vanity. A good size closet completes this space. Hardwood runs through the rest of the upstairs with three generously sized bedrooms and a hall bath.
The cellar has the laundry area and plenty of storage plus a walk up entrance to the yard.
