First Floor: A spacious front porch made of Trex composite decking allows you to overlook the front yard and welcomes guests to the front door. The bright, generously-sized living room opens before you with gleaming hardwood floors and a large bay window looking out front. A flue for a wood stove is located behind mirror. From there, the open dining room connects the living space and kitchen for comfortable meals of all sizes with a sliding glass door to the deck and picturesque backyard. The kitchen offers a functional U-shaped design with a large window over the sink, two pantry closets, and a breakfast bar. A door leads to the mudroom with space for a bench, hooks to hold all your outdoor gear coming in from the 2-car garage with a steel modern overhead door with remote, workshop area, and stairs to the basement.
Bedrooms: A hall of hardwoods leads from the living space to the bedroom wing. A full bathroom with tub/shower unit, chair rail and crown molding sits across from a coat closet, and two comparable bedrooms are on the right side of the hall with newer carpet and freshly painted walls. On the opposite side, the master suite offers mutli-dimensional light, views of the backyard, blinds, chair rail, ceiling fan and an efficient ensuite bathroom, stall shower, wainscot walls and terrific natural light.
