Crossing over the threshold, the warm and cozy living room comes into view. With refinished hardwood floors, crown molding and wood fireplace-it’s easy to entertain in this space! The adjacent sun filled den is perfect for relaxing after a long day of work with custom built-in shelving and recessed lighting.

Down the hall is the full bathroom with tile floor and generous sized soaking tub.

The finished third level is complete with bonus room/bedroom, large walk-in closet and additional attic storage space.

And there’s more…the finished lower level has a Recreation room, storage and laundry room and half bath for added convenience.

Loving care and thoughtful updates have kept this fine home fresh and modern.  Outside, the backyard is private and spacious.  The paver patio welcomes your picnic tables and lawn chairs, while the backyard is made for active play and gardening.  Cross off those top items on your list.  This stunning colonial brings generous interior spaces, a prime location and pretty setting together in one fabulous package.
