Listing Description

SOLD! We have more! Wonderfully inviting, this unique colonial enjoys plenty of curb appeal. Situated in the desirable Poet's section, this renovated home rests on over one-third acre of nicely landscaped property. As tall trees and mature shrubbery provide the backdrop, a covered front porch extends a warm welcome.

Step inside and you are greeted by a two-story entrance hall with marble tiling, an elegant turned staircase, panel wainscoting and arched entries to the adjoining rooms. Positioned to your left, the spacious living room spills into the adjoining dining room, as gorgeous Brazilian cherry wood floors flow underfoot. Deep crown moldings, wide trim and decorative chair rails outline decorator colors, setting the stage for a variety of tastes and furnishings. A wood-burning fireplace enhances the living room, while large windows invite the sun's warm rays into both the living room and formal dining room.

Beyond these spaces, a guest room is a versatile place with built-ins and a closet. Ideal as a bedroom or home office, this is a room ready to satisfy your individual needs. Outside, there is a paver patio and plenty of room for active play and gardening. This designer kitchen is more than ready to meet the standards of even the fussiest home cook. Cabinets are topped with granite counters, as high end appliances stand ready to help get the job done. The center island has a very comfortable breakfast bar and plenty of extra space for storage and food prep. Set beside large windows and a door to outside, the breakfast room redefines casual dining.

Comfortably located on the second level are four generous bedrooms and three full baths. The master suite includes a fabulous en suite master bath with slipper tub, walk-in shower and furniture quality vanity and sink. A Jack n' Jill style full bath serves two bedrooms and the hall bath is conveniently located near the remaining bedroom. There is more than enough closet storage on this second level, while additional storage space is found on the lower level. Along with storage space, the lower level includes a large recreation room and a full size laundry room with utility closets.
