“With four bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms and a 30-by-15 foot swimming pool, it has all the hallmarks of the happy home it has been for its current family over the past 24 years.
Flanked by a pair of tall beech trees, the 2,386 square-ft contemporary- style residence sits well back on its .57 acre lot. A stately brick chimney rises on the left magenta contrast with the ecru vinyl siding and white trim.
The house is reached via a broad driveway leading to the attached, two-car garage/ workshop with ample off-street parking on its way to the flight of brick steps rising to the peak- roofed porch. A two- story bay enclosed by six on six windows and topped with a peaked roof , add another dimension.
Once inside, the glowing hardwood floor flows from the foyer, down the hallway into ta charming powder room- and on to the comfortable 18-by 13.3 living room to the left of the entrance. A brick, wood-burning fireplace, with Arts-and Crafts metal work insert, and classical white mantel-forms the focal point of the room. As through out the house, baseboards and crown molding define the area, with chair rail extending into the dining room. The bay window provides views of the garden and diffuses light through out the room. A paddle fan, with brass detailing and frosted shades centers the ceiling.
A wide opening leads to the 13.3-by-10.1 dining room, with uninterrupted views of the spacious split-level deck, pool and garden through double, floor-to-ceiling glass doors. A triple-light chandelier is suspended above the dining area and access to the garage is via a secure door.
The twelve-foot-square kitchen leads on from the dining room. It is decorated in a refreshing blue-and-white color scheme with sky-blue counter tops and back splashes, tailored white cabinets, a dishwasher, microwave, smooth-top electric range, double sin and stainless-steel fitments.
Beyond the kitchen is a 12.7-by-11.4 coffee-and-white, carpeted room currently used as an office- which could also be used as a formal dining room. Two six-on-six windows overlook the garden, a built-in cabinet stands in a corner, while a frosted shade centers the ceiling.
The 12.7-by 11.4 family room- accessed via hallway of office- completes the ground floor.
The beautiful master bedroom suite is reached via a flight of carpeted stairs to the second floor. A bay window overlooks the garden, while a white paddle fan centers the ceiling. The spacious walk-in closet has plenty of room for anyone’s wardrobe.
A luxurious, Jacuzzi Whirlpool Bath is the “must have” feature in the master bathroom which also has a glass-door shower and separate toilet. This is truly a double bathroom, with two, individual self-contained vanities- a good way to keep toiletries in the right places!
Two large, airy bedrooms are equipped with wall-to-wall carpets, ceiling fans, six-on-six windows, plantation blinds and wide wardrobes with paneled folding doors. A tiled, full bathroom and the laundry are conveniently close by as is a 13.4-by-11.9 room currently used for exercising. An attractive, dormer room, with paned windows and a skylight occupies the third floor. Access to plenty of attic storage is on both second and third floors.
What could be more refreshing on a hot day than taking a dip in a 30-by-15 swimming pool- especially after sun bathing on a spacious deck? The split level, railed deck is designed to reach the height of the above-ground pool, as well as provide plenty of tanning space on both floors, plus room for a large table, chairs and barbecue. A luscious grape vine and other greenery provide privacy.
Beyond the deck and pool is a spacious lawn and fire pit, set against a wooded backdrop.”
