Greet your guests in the living room, far wider than most living rooms and an incredibly welcoming space perfect for hanging out with the family or entertaining. It is perfect for hosting large groups while enjoying the room’s unique setting. Cozy up around the wood burning fireplace on chilly nights. Large, architecturally distinctive windows offer tons of charm and natural light with delightful scenic vistas beyond. Beneath the windows, an oversized cushioned window seat provides a great space to stretch out with a good book, gaze out at the treetop views, or during winter take a nap while warmed by the sun.
The living room opens seamlessly to a versatile sunroom surrounded by walls of windows, a wonderful space for reading, relaxing, or to use as an office for working comfortably from home.
The formal dining room is perfect for hosting fun dinner parties or sharing special meals with a built-in china cabinet and hardwood floors.

A centrally located staircase leads to the second level as the newly refinished hardwood floors continue to the privately set primary bedroom, two more family bedrooms and an office, and the family bathroom. A vaulted ceiling adds a feeling of spaciousness in the primary bedroom featuring a large dressing area with double closets and a bathroom with a tiled tub and shower.
Three more family bedrooms offer refinished hardwood floors and abundant natural light. The second level family bathroom has ceramic floor tiles and a tiled tub with a shower. An oversized walk-in closet on the second level landing offers potential as a future laundry room or additional storage.
The finished third level continues with an additional bedroom, offering the ultimate setting for the family member that loves their privacy or this room could also be used as an office – it’s up to you to decide!

The ample off street parking area offers parking for 3-4 cars.
