Gracious, comfortable living is the key to this impressive Colonial. The cedar shake siding enhances its overall rustic aura, fitting seamlessiy into the 3-acre wooded setting. Magnificent trees, natural landscaping, and sweeping front lawn leading to a meandering stream offer unique opportunities to enjoy the outdoors of this special property. The house is liveable in every way. Its well-proportioned rooms and practical floor plan are well-suited for families of every size. The expanse of windows let light into every room, while offering lovely views of the outdoor park-like setting. Up-to-date in every way, this house provides flexibility with function. A first floor bedroom (including skylight), with nearby full bath, can also serve as an in-law suite or handy den or office. The adjacent family room with wood-burning fireplace looks out on the spacious new deck, and the nearby sun room offers yet another opportunity for a versatile space. Formal dining room and living room (also with a fireplace) are appropriate entertainment settings, and the kitchen with Quartz countertops, cherry cabinets and handsome tile floor also features a charming eating area surrounded by windows. Four upstairs bedrooms all offer full views of the outdoors, and the ample hallway is lined with closets and built-in shelves. Nearby is a unexpected "nook", suitable for a quiet reading spot or even a mini office. These unexpected "hideaways" are special touches throughout the house, helping to set it apart. Located in a congenial neighborhood, easily accessible to schools and town, this property, in move-in condition, allows the new owner a chance to live in a home offering not only comfort and convenience ? but character.
