This exceptionally well designed and maintained home provides a nice first impression from the front and the newly blacktopped driveway entry, but it must be seen from the rear (waterfront) side of the property and inside to be properly appreciated. Rear property line is Wappingers Creek. Lots of room inside (4, 000+ sq ft) and out (4+ acres). A complete renovation and several building additions were completed over the past 10 years. Park in the large new driveway behind the home and one of the first things you will notice is the storybook stonework surrounding the house and rear decks. Inside, the large eat-in kitchen features open views, plenty of light, a walk in pantry, granite countertops and stainless steel JennAir appliances. The kitchen opens onto a spacious rear deck with an outdoor dining area seating 10, a grilling area, and room for a 7 person hot tub (not included). Below the deck, you will find the garage beside the large French patio doors which open from the spacious downstairs family room to the rear yard drive. Back inside and up the first stairwell to the kitchen level, the formal dining room is separated from the formal living room with fireplace by the center stairway landing area, with this second set of stairs leading to the upper floor bedrooms. High end finishes in these formal areas feature chandeliers, crown mouldings and wainscoting. The formal living room takes you to the sunroom office area (with skylights and a vaulted ceiling), and to the sunken playroom / rec room off to the side. Upstairs, you will find the master suite, two more bedrooms, a full bath and a lovely library / reading room. The master bedroom suite will fulfill all your wants and dreams. The vaulted ceiling and large windows make this impressive room feel even more spacious and bright. The walk in closet even has its own large window. The private master bath features a large whirlpool bath - perfect for soaking during the day or for turning on the jets to massage away the evening's stresses after work. The tile floor is heated and, again, the finishes are spectacular. The vanity and whirlpool tops are matching granite, and the inlaid tilework in the large shower lends a museum quality feeling to the artwork (not included) on the walls.
