Living in Westfield is even more appealing in this impeccable 3 bedroom 2 and 1 half bath Colonial. Inside, spacious rooms flow effortlessly from one inviting area to the next. Hardwood floors, a neutral decorator’s palette, decorative moldings and trim make each room special. Modern updates and amenities coupled with old world charm make this home a recipe for perfection.

From the moment you enter through the foyer you are greeted by warm toned hardwood floors flowing underfoot; guiding you into the Family room. The center of this home is the Family room. It is a great space to gather, entertain, or kick back and relax in front of the wood burning fireplace. Right off the Family room is the Dining room where formal dinner parties are handled with ease and the crown molding adds that extra touch of elegance. Just steps away is the fully updated kitchen, completed in 2011 with crisp white cabinetry, granite countertop, center island with breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances. Cooking in this kitchen is a dream. An updated powder room with marble tile completes the first level.

Situated on the second level are three bedrooms and one full bathroom. The spacious master bedroom includes double closets with custom shelving. The hall bathroom is well equipped and ready to service the remaining two bedrooms through the morning rush.

And there’s more…the lower level has been finished into a recreation room and also includes a full bathroom with stall shower, office and a laundry room.

Outside the flat level yard is perfect for all your outdoor hobbies. Entertain in style on the paver patio. It is easy to imagine your furnishings and artwork beautifully displayed in this home. 512 South Chestnut is a wonderful opportunity to take advantage of all Westfield has to offer in complete style.
