Upon arrival, you’ll proceed up a brick paver walkway that leads you through lush landscaping to the welcoming columned entry that’s your introduction to this stately colonial set on the sought-after view side of Bridgewater’s Sunset Ridge.

Step through the warm hued wood door into the welcoming Entry Foyer with front to back views that will instantly reveal just how special this home is. Majestic views are revealed through the full windowed wall in the expansive step down Great Room featuring hardwood floors, a gas fireplace with granite surround and three French doors leading to the patio just outside. Family and guest will surely be wowed by the views! Continue on to the right to enter the cheery Kitchen highlighted by crisp white cabinetry and an abundance of storage space. It’s the perfect space to prepare your favorite gourmet creations that can be enjoyed either at the center island Breakfast Bar, in the open Breakfast Room, or for more formal occasions, in the adjacent Dining Room. After the meal, step down to the light filled Family Room that reveals even more outdoor views and provides the perfect spot to put your feet up and unwind. If you’ve got a work project to finish up or want to tend to daily paperwork, step back through the double door entry from the Great Room into the conveniently located Home Office that’s equally suited as an additional bedroom – a large walk-in closet and a full bath are just steps away.  An elegant Powder Room just off the Entry Foyer and a Laundry Room easily accessed through the Kitchen complete the first level living space.

When it’s time to retire for the night, proceed up the grand curved stairway to the second level where everyone will find their own personal retreat. Four bedrooms are all accessed via a spacious L-shaped gallery landing that overlooks the Great Room and has full access to the outdoor views. To the left, the Master Bedroom Suite awaits. A double door entry reveals a beautiful sanctuary outfitted for your maximum comfort. Step into the bedroom on the right and you’ll never want to leave.  French doors lead to a spacious balcony where you’re sure to enjoy morning coffee as the day breaks. A room sized walk-in closet provides more than enough space for all your clothing and shoes, and a spa-like en suite bath is accessed either through the closet or from a separate entrance at the front of the suite. The bath is highlighted by volume ceiling, dual sink vanities linked by a make-up counter, a large glass enclosed shower and a jetted tub with glass block wall and tile surround.  Providing the ultimate in luxury features, this private bath is sure to please. Three additional light filled bedrooms, each with plenty of closet space and an en suite bath (two share a Jack & Jill bath) assure privacy and comfort for all family and guests.

The home also has a spacious unfinished lower level to assure there’s room for all your storage needs. But that’s not all…the “piece de resistance” of this home is the backyard oasis that’s sure to impress. Outside you’ll find an inviting in-ground free form heated pool surrounded by an attractive brick paver patio and lush green lawns. It’s the perfect place for outdoor hobbies and entertaining.  Dine al fresco while the sun sets and reveals a panoramic view that’s picture perfect! Continue on down to the “hidden patio” that’s nestled into the side of the ridge and brings you even further into the natural setting. The breathtaking views assure you’ll never want to leave!
