Sunlight streams through the large bay window of the inviting formal living room with shining hardwood floors. A wood burning fireplace offers a visual centerpiece with its unique marble surround.

The living room transitions to a versatile sitting area perfect for reading, relaxing, or working from home with built-in shelving, hardwood floors, and a sunny double window. A glass paneled door opens to a private office with hardwood floors and direct access to the home’s side entry.

Share special meals in the formal dining room with double French doors opening to the kitchen.

The chef will love the fabulous, open concept kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, a center island, a breakfast bar, stylish white cabinetry, a tile backsplash, recessed lighting, and pendant lighting.

The open concept family room opens seamlessly, defined by a cathedral ceiling for an added feeling of expansiveness. A Palladian window, glass slider, and skylights welcome the sunshine. Step outside to the large deck overlooking the charming backyard beyond. Dine al fresco or spend summer days relaxing and entertaining. Mature trees surround the level yard for added privacy and shade.

The first of five bedrooms is sunny and cheerful with two large double closets. A convenient half bathroom adds the finishing touch to the main level.

Retreat to the second level with the master suite, two more family bedrooms, and the family bathroom. The master bedroom is spacious with a huge walk-in closet and an inviting bathroom with an oversized vanity and jacuzzi tub. A decorative arched window defines the dressing area with a cozy window seat beneath, perfect for curling up with a good book.

Two more generous family bedrooms on the second level are full of natural light with large closets and all offer privacy when needed for reading, studying, or to simply unwind at the end of a long day. The family bathroom is easily accessible by both bedrooms, featuring a dual sink vanity and a tiled tub with shower.

More space awaits on the finished third level with a spacious and versatile playroom, another family bedroom, and a full bathroom with a shower, offering an ideal space to use as a teen suite. Fall asleep beneath the stars in the generous bedroom with skylights, a large closet, and ensuite bathroom. The third level is a wonderfully private and inviting space to escape to at the end of a long day.

A stairway from the family room offers an easy connection to the finished lower level with a recreation room, a bonus room, and another full bathroom with a shower. Imagine fun ping pong tournaments or rainy day activities in the recreation room with recessed lighting and a storage closet.
