The style of this home suits the .78 acre land it sits on perfectly. Like many individually built ranch homes, it has a low profile that maximizes the integration with the lot. With a gentle slope, and flat area beyond, the gardens and yard can be enjoyed extensively both from the inside and out and gives the home interesting outdoor spaces.
The back yard and pool area is very private. From the road you would never know that the land is like a secret paradise. The in-ground heated gunite pool is beautifully fenced and has ample decking for varied seating spaces. Summer evenings can be enjoyed around the pool under the stars with the big dipper framed beautifully in the sky. There are flat grassy areas and an outdoor shower.
Upon entering the home, from the easily cared for landscaped front, there is a front to back central foyer that looks straight out to the terraced gardens in the back. This foyer has access to the garage, a coat closet and an additional walk-in closet for great storage. The kitchen, dining and living rooms are open with a wood burning fireplace, skylights, a wall of windows and French door that leads to the yard and patios out back. Comfortable floor plan with the family room up a few steps, less open space and a pleasing adjacent bedroom with great views of the yard. There are four bedrooms and two full updated bathrooms. The first floor master bedroom and bath have radiant heat, built in shelving, high ceilings and skylights. The laundry room and mudroom entry is right off the kitchen. There are two sheds, one with electricity plus a separate storage shed for trash and recycling. There is an attached two car garage with radiant heat and a driveway on each side of the house.
System details include a five zone Buderus heating system. There is town water and sewer, and the outside water is separately metered. Many details thought through like the multiple outdoor water spigots and convenient utility sink in the basement.
