Driving up to this stately colonial style home, you find yourself welcomed by a corner lot with exquisite landscaping and a circle drive leading up to the oversized brick front porch lined with columns.
Even from the front porch you notice the sense of scale in this home, with 10 foot high front doors and 12 foot ceilings as the standard height.
Heading into the foyer you find gorgeous hardwood flooring, the formal dining room to your left, stairs up to your right, and the living room straight ahead.
Heading left into the formal dining room you find extended baseboards and extensive millwork, as well as a wide throughway that leads you into the kitchen.
The kitchen features custom cherry cabinetry with silver poles, solid surface counters, updated high-end stainless steel appliances, central island, and central five burner gas cook-top.
The kitchen flows naturally into the breakfast room, where you will find double glass doors leading to the screened-in porch and back deck overlooking the partially wooded lot and nearby lake.
Off the breakfast room is a long and wide hallway that spans the length of the home, with tons of built-in shelving and display space. Immediately on your left off the hallway is the main floor laundry, with built-in laundry baskets, built-in hanging space, built-in ironing board, space for a deep freeze, and a linen pantry.
Also accessible by this hallway is the central living room, the foyer, the stairs to the lower level, a main-floor bedroom or office, and the master suite at the very end of the hall.
The master suite is a generously sized room with a wall of built-in cabinetry, eliminating the need for dressers by providing 20 ample sized drawers and hanging cabinets, as well as space for a television and built-in electronics.
Double doors welcome you into the master bath, with separate vanity and make-up station, walk-in closet, and a water closet with standalone shower and private linen pantry.
Ascending the stairs to the upper level by way of the extra-wide staircase, you find a short hallway with doors on either end leading to generously-sized secondary bedrooms. Both bedrooms feature built-in bookshelves and walk-in closets with more built-in shelving.
Heading downstairs, you emerge on a landing where the stairs split in either direction. To the left is unfinished space where you can find the utilities and John Deere doors leading to the backyard.
To the right the hallway splits and you find a corridor to your right leading to a large family room, and a path straight ahead leading to an amazing rec room and bar area. You will love the pub-like feel of this space, with stained concrete floors, gorgeous floor-to-ceiling custom cabinetry, stone counter tops, fridge, bar sink, and seating for up to eight. The space is easily large enough to accommodate a full-sized pool table, and also offers access to a half-bath.
