Approaching this beautiful home reveals truly spectacular curb appeal: an intricately-carved scalloped white gable & trim, powder blue siding, arched transom door, and diamond-paned windows captivate passersby. Step inside the classic red door to an elegant foyer featuring pegged wide-plank floors and antique locally reclaimed barn wood beams.

To the left is the heart of the home, a cozy living room with a white coffered ceiling, an updated gas fireplace, and a large bow window ideal for nestling a love seat or hanging plants. A stylish full bathroom designed with Graham Brown luxury wallpaper services the downstairs, providing a convenient space for entertaining guests. Here, is also a 3-season mudroom/sunroom and the secondary driveway entrance from the deck and detached garage.

Continue through the home to a completely renovated modern kitchen with granite countertops, a pantry, stainless steel appliances, and a gas stove. An adjacent generously-sized formal dining room remains true to the style, offering a sun-drenched space to entertain with plenty of room for a large heirloom dining table & bar. French doors lead to a highly sought-after downstairs bedroom or office fitted with built-in window seats and bookshelves.

Further downstairs in the unfinished basement is where the home has benefited from a number of recent upgrades: a new well tank, new hot water heater, new above-ground indoor oil tank, new laundry pump waste line, whole house Verizon Fios fiber optic high-speed wifi, which is rarely available in this area, and a 6-year old roof.

Upstairs are two additional bedrooms with newly refinished hardwood floors throughout. The primary suite has its own bathroom with radiant heated tile flooring and a sizable vaulted walk-in closet with skylight, plus a designated seating area for curling up with a book.

Fall in love with endless views of lush treetops and a babbling brook, which provides gentle water sounds most of the year. Bird watchers will delight in daily visits from hundreds of species of birds, and animal lovers will enjoy watching the deer from afar as they graze on the neighboring grassy hill.
