Are you looking for stately style and a quiet, private location? This 1 owner, 3600+ sqft house offers high quality construction and detail by David Lowe and a traditional New England Cape Cod design by E.S. Adkins & Company. It is located on a cul-de-sac at the end of a seven home street with low traffic. The paved driveway features Dogwoods and soaring White Oak trees, and the freshly planted landscaping. Coming in the front door, you are welcomed into a spacious two-story foyer with white marble squares accented by black marble "bow ties," a lovely chandelier and a traditional oak staircase that takes you to the second floor. A coat closet slips under the staircase. To your left from the foyer through an elliptical arch, you find a formal library, study or piano room with traditional, but seldom seen in today's construction raised paneled walls, built bookshelves and cabinets with an oak hardwood floor in a geometrical design. Back to the foyer and through another elliptical arch, you find a spacious formal dining room with another hardwood floor in a geometrical design. Going through the dining room, you walk into a huge family room with southwestern style ceramic tile, and the room has a marble and red cedar fireplace with efficient wood burning insert. The fireplace is framed by two large palladium windows with window seats, hiding additional storage. A skylight and two ceiling fans highlight this beautiful room. Towards the back yard there is a twelve foot sliding glass door that opens to the three steps down into a brick-floored closed in porch that is easily used in winter with an additional room size electrical heater. Back in the family room, you find a hallway leading to the garage with a large utility/storage room and half bath. Through the family room you step down three steps to the grand great room/country kitchen with 11 ft ceiling and an oak hardwood floor. You see a wall of glass doors and panels that show off the very private decks, forested bank yard and further back a cleared area, where wildlife sometime feed. On the other side is the kitchen where all the action is. A Jenn Air cooktop lays in a large Corian countertop with seating available at one end, a kitchen prep area on the other and convenient cabinets above. There is a double oven and a double sink along with cabinets around the outside of the island counter as well as a dishwasher and a side by side refrigerator. By the fireplace in the great room, you step up three steps into a spacious first floor bedroom with a private entrance, full bath, large closet and double windows overlooking the backyard. Through the great room into the foyer, take the stairs to the second level, or go into the family room and take the unusual but lovely and incredibly solid all oak staircase to the second floor. At the top of the steps is a cute nook for a small desk and chair, and an oak floored hallway leading to the three bedrooms. At the far end, you find the large primary bedroom and adjacent area including a large room for a bed, tables and dressers, a convenient closet, a wonderful gas fireplace and a French door that opens to a private deck with an unusual perspective. The bath features a double vanity, large soaking tub, separate shower and extensive tile work including the floor. A sitting room leads to a large red cedar closet with built in drawers. There are two other bedrooms, both with closets, laundry area, including washer, dryer and built in cabinets. A full bath with double vanity and tile floor. Oversized double car garage with solid workbench, shelves, and a permanent stairway to the huge, half-finished attic area. If you have a dog, there is an invisible fence around most of the perimeter of the property, a two story treehouse can be found in the woods. Enjoy nature at its best from any room of this home. It offers personality, high quality stately style and is ready and eager to welcome its new owners!
