Welcome home to this immaculate Colonial, thoughtfully renovated and lovingly cared for by the current owners for many years and perfectly situated in a popular neighborhood only a short stroll to the Minuteman Bike Path and within walking distance to the town center. First impressions are met by professional landscaping as mature trees and colorful plantings create fantastic curb appeal. A covered front entry welcomes you inside the spacious foyer and mudroom with ceramic floor tiles and an oversized, double closet perfect for managing and organizing an active lifestyle. A full bathroom off the foyer offers convenience with a modern vanity, ceramic floor tiles, and a generous seated shower. The versatile foyer and mudroom opens to a lovely sitting area bathed in natural light with a half-cathedral ceiling, ceiling fan, recessed lighting, and another large double closet for abundant storage. Double sliding doors create a wall of glass with lovely views of the adjoining three-season porch, added in 2016, showcasing tranquil views of the private backyard.

The spacious kitchen draws you in from the foyer and offers the perfect space for the chef’s culinary skills to shine with high-end cherry cabinetry, stainless steel appliances including the dishwasher and refrigerator, ample workspace with over 40 square feet of extra deep countertops, recessed lighting, and a spacious double closet providing abundant pantry storage. A large cutout opens to the adjoining family room creating an open concept feel and allowing the chef to easily interact with family and guests. The spacious open plan family room, with an informal table area, is a cheerful and inviting place where all will love to gather with shining hardwood floors and recessed lighting. A wall of high end built-in cherry cabinetry defines the table area and provides plenty of storage space and a perfect space to display treasured collectibles. A seamless transition flows to the comfortable sitting area with ample wall space for your entertainment system and a single French door spilling out to the three-season porch.

You’ll feel right at home as sunlight streams though the triple window of the open plan formal living and dining rooms with delightful views of the surrounding landscape. Two cased openings provide an easy flow to the kitchen from both the living and dining rooms. A wall of high end built-in cherry cabinetry, with a Corian countertop accented with glass display doors, provides a focal point and a space for storing your fine dinnerware.  The dining room transitions seamlessly into the formal living room as the gleaming hardwood floors span the area, creating the perfect setting for hosting special celebrations with family and friends

A beautifully crafted staircase from the living room leads you to the second level, past a landing with a lovely cherry display case, to the spacious master suite, two more generously-sized family bedrooms, and the family bathroom on the second level. The master suite features hardwood floors, a double window for lots of natural light, an expansive dressing room or office area, a large double closet, and an additional closet for endless storage. The master bathroom is fresh and inviting with a generous seated shower. The family bedrooms are light-filled and generously sized with hardwood floors. A 2016 renovation included the extension to one of the family bedrooms uniquely designed and ideal as a child’s play space, storage area, or a quiet retreat. Another family bedroom provides walk-up access to the partially finished attic, offering a private hangout space for a child or teen. The family bathroom on the second level is tastefully done in neutral tones with a tiled tub/shower.

The home continues to impress with the meticulously-maintained, walkout lower level with a laundry area and abundant storage potential. A separate basement space is perfect for storing bicycles, canoes, kayaks, and other large sports equipment, with outdoor hot and cold water at the driveway area. The walkout lower level offers easy and direct access to the driveway beneath the cover of the porch above for comfort during the changing seasons. The home is heated by a gas fueled boiler newly installed in 2008. Electric heaters with timers are also installed throughout home for supplemental use as desired.
