Take a trip down the Nanticoke Rd. Turn left on Willow Creek, again on Oxbridge, Beddington and Kilmarth. You will find this imposing house on the right hand side of the street…
Set in a gently-mounded lot of more than an acre, the Colonial-style home has crisp white siding set off by slate gray paneled shutters and front door. A circular bed of ornamental grasses punctuates the expansive lawn while a border of established trees, shrubs and topiaries surrounds the house. In-ground sprinklers keep the garden in tip-top condition.
A wide driveway along the left-hand side of the lawn leads to off-street parking-with room for plenty of guests- and the entrance to the attached garage at the side of the house. A storage shed and workshop is nearby. Variegated slate forms the pathway to the steps of the railed, L-shaped porch.
Once inside, a stairway with beautifully-detailed railing, winds its way up from the hardwood-floored foyer. A glass lamp with brass detailing is suspended from the cathedral ceiling, while a bowl ceiling lamp illuminates the foyer. A roomy coat closet is at hand.
Off to the right of the foyer is the ochre-toned sitting room/ office with a nine-foot ceiling-as through out the house- baseboards and two, deep six-on-six windows overlooking the front garden. The open plan continues through to the family room and kitchen. Wall-to-wall carpeting adds to the cozy atmosphere in both family and sitting rooms. A classical, white mantel surrounds the gas-fired log fire in the family room, while a brass paddle-fan with white blades provides air flow. In-ceiling lighting accentuates art and photo displays. Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors lead to the luxurious screened porch with views of the multi-level deck and stunning garden beyond.
Dove-gray flooring and smokey-olive walls make the perfect setting for the kitchen-which has crisp white paneled cupboards, Formica counter tops, dishwasher, microwave, electric range and refrigerator/ ice maker- plus a walk-in pantry. The breakfast nook is tucked into a bay window overlooking the garden.
A charming, military-red, half-bathroom- with white pedestal sink and toilet-and storage room are conveniently located between the kitchen and formal dining room, which carries on the color scheme with red walls above a crisp white chair rail and wainscot. Deep, double six-on-six windows overlook the front garden. A six-light, brushed steel chandelier centers the ceiling.
The master suite, three bedrooms, a double, full bathroom, laundry, ample storage space, plus pull-down access to the attic are all located on the second floor. A luxurious spa bath is set at an angle in the double master bathroom where white vanities stand out against the designer-gray walls. Sliding glass doors contain the shower, while a demi-wall separates the toilet. A lighted paddle fan centers the ceiling of the pretty blue master bedroom,which has a white chair rail and wainscot. Two deep, paned windows overlook the garden. The walk-in closets have ample room for the most fashionable wardrobes!
Three roomy bedrooms complete the second floor. Each has a walk-in closet, six-on-six windows and paddle fan centering the ceiling.
As if the above wasn’t temptation enough, you’ll want to move right in- and invite all of your friends- when you see the exotic back garden! It is custom made for entertaining. A spacious, multi-level deck leads to the gray stone patio surrounding the huge, circulating salt-water swimming pool- shaped like a lake! Added features are a rock waterfall, water slide and diving board. The cabana house has a granite-topped wet bar, with ‘fridge and remote control panel. A stone-edged fire pit is off to one side. A tall white fence and row of established conifers provide privacy.”
