Professional landscaping adds curb appeal galore, making a lovely first impression with perennial plantings and lush green grass. The home has been meticulously updated by its current owners, including extensive kitchen and bathroom renovations, delivering a modern and stylish, open concept floor plan ideal for comfortable living and entertaining.

A flagstone pathway welcomes you inside the front entry as shining hardwood floors and abundant natural light begin to flow throughout the home’s freshly painted interior. Sunlight streams through the large picture window of the formal living room. A wood burning fireplace, with a stylish white mantel and surround, creates a visual centerpiece and a cozy setting.

Share special meals in the formal dining room with shining hardwood floors and a trendy chandelier.

Unleash your inner chef in the stunning, renovated kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, shaker style cabinetry, a large breakfast bar island with cooktop, a tile backsplash, and recessed lighting. The renovation included new cabinetry, the island, flooring, appliances, tiles, windows, and more.

The kitchen transitions seamlessly to the open concept family room, defined by a vaulted ceiling for an added feeling of expansiveness. A skylight and windows with transom arches welcome the sunshine in the inviting family room, featuring hardwood floors and a ceiling fan.

Double French doors from the family room open to the private office with hardwood floors and built-in shelving to keep you organized, offering a great space for working comfortably from home. Another French door opens to the mudroom area and side entry, connecting easily with the driveway, perfect for managing an active lifestyle. The driveway was expanded and repaved in 2018, providing plenty of space for parking.

Step outside to the large deck overlooking the huge backyard beyond. The deck was rebuilt and expanded, offering a wonderful place to dine al fresco or spend summer days relaxing and entertaining. The backyard has so much to offer with mature trees for privacy, a designated area for gardeners, and two storage sheds for garden tools and other large recreational equipment.

This thoughtfully designed home is guaranteed to fit your family’s needs with the versatility of a first level bedroom perfect for guests or to use as desired. The generous bedroom is full of natural light with hardwood floors, a large double closet, and recessed lighting. A full bathroom adjoining the bedroom is nicely renovated with a granite-topped vanity and a tiled tub with shower. Both bathroom renovations included new floor and wall tiles, vanities, faucets, and light fixtures.

An open staircase from the front entry leads to the second level with the master bedroom, a family bedroom, and another full bathroom. A beamed, vaulted ceiling adds an added feeling of spaciousness to the master bedroom with double closets, a skylight, and hardwood floors. The large family bedroom is full of natural light with a skylight, hardwood floors, and ample closet space. The updated full bathroom has a modern feel with a beautifully tiled tub with a shower.

The renovation transformed the lower level, offering lots more living space. A playroom/media room is perfect for movie night or rainy-day activities. The front windows of the playroom were expanded to let in lots of natural light. A bonus room works well as a private office with recessed lighting and a closet. The unfinished side of the lower level is clean and tidy, featuring the laundry area, a workshop, and abundant additional storage space.

This immaculate home is beaming with pride of ownership and situated to enjoy all that Lexington has to offer close to schools, playgrounds, and conservation areas to explore. Many amenities, including shopping and dining within both Lexington and Bedford, are only a short drive away. Commuters will love easy access to major highway routes and public transportation. Welcome to the highly desirable community of Lexington known for its excellent public schools, open conservation land and parks, and dynamic community life. This is the one you have been waiting for.
