This sunny, 4 bedroom, 2.1 bathroom contemporary is thoughtfully-sited back from the road on 3 acres in a cul-de-sac neighborhood. Oriented to maximize privacy and appreciation of its natural setting, this home is perfect for a buyer who is looking for a property which is not only distinctive in its style but also designed with an ideal balance between its open floor plan and private spaces inside and out.
The home’s interior features include a floor plan that flows well for day to day living while affording the spaces required for family gatherings and other entertaining. Baseboard hot water heating and hardwood and tile floors throughout (except in the master bedroom which is carpeted) help keep dust to a minimum. Generously-sized windows and recessed lighting bring natural and supplemental light into the rooms throughout the day.
The entrance foyer welcomes guests and sets the tone of the sleek styling of this contemporary home. The foyer features tile floors and connects to the kitchen, living room, and three bedrooms all on the upper level of the home.
The eat-in kitchen is oriented towards views of the natural beauty of the property and features ample cabinets and counter space with high ceilings. The adjacent dining room has the same high ceilings with exposed beams and overlooks the rear of the property. The high ceilings and exposed beams extend into the spacious family room adding to the airy feeling throughout the home. The living room features large windows on two walls, access to a large outdoor deck overlooking the inground Gunite-style pool, and a wood-burning fireplace with floor-to-ceiling fieldstone stone surround all of which accent the home’s rustic, natural setting.
The master bedroom suite features a double closet, large windows displaying the expansive views of the property, and an ensuite bathroom with separate dressing area and an oversized glass enclosed shower with a curved glass brick wall and two pedestal sinks. Two additional bedrooms are on the same level and also feature hardwood floors. The main bathroom is located near the secondary bedrooms.
The finished lower level adds additional living space to the home and features the fourth bedroom. This bedroom has a closet, built-in shelves, hardwood floors, and large windows overlooking the wooded front yard. A large recreation room with rustic wood paneling, rough-hewn accent beams, and terra-cotta tile features a beautiful wood burning fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone surround. The same stone covers the front of a large open bar area with stainless steel sink and extensive counters and under-cabinet storage. A recently-renovated powder room is adjacent to a finished area for additional storage. Large windows overlook the backyard and the inground Gunite-style pool, and a door leads from the basement to the pool area by way of a bluestone patio along the side of the house. The laundry room completes the lower level and has access to the garage. The systems of the home include oil-fired baseboard heating, central air conditioning, 200 amp electrical service, well water, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire extinguishers.
