Upon entering you'll find a heated year-round sunroom that spans the width of the home with its newer windows you're sure to delight in gathering in this room. Seven sets of Jeldwen wood French doors, quarter-sawn oak floors, cove lighting, beamed ceilings and an original full masonry brick corbeled fireplace flanked by oak benches are just several of the first-floor features. Somewhat of an open-floor plan...the living, dining and family room all gracefully flow to the owner/architect designed kitchen filled with an entire wall of casement windows allowing the outside in. The kitchen includes a vaulted ceiling, upscale appliances, dual sinks, granite counters, terra-cotta floors and French doors that lead out to the deck and large naturally landscaped backyard and a terrific 3 car garage with charging port. Just down the hall from the kitchen is a powder room, small desk area and several closets. The second floor has a newer primary suite with full bath and is surrounded by windows giving you treetop views and a sunny southern exposure. This room also has 2 sets of French doors leading to the 2nd floor deck and a sweet private balcony, perfect for enjoying your morning coffee that overlooks the peaceful backyard. Three additional bedrooms (one ensuite with fireplace and half-bath) and the full hall bath with dual sinks complete the 2nd floor.
