Property Details

  • Bedrooms: 5

Rare pride of ownership. This is what happens when two hardworking perfectionists build their own home. They fell in love with this large secluded parcel and built their dream home upon it in 1985. Their pain-staking labor of love with attention to every detail is this gated two-story Tudor estate with four bedrooms, three baths, a bonus guest suite, and a huge basement. They are now ready to pass it on to a very fortunate Buyer.

The gate opens to idyllic front grounds with a huge green lawn and pampered gardens that perfectly accent the soaring two-story roofline. The welcoming front door opens to a true formal entry with a high raised ceiling, rich oak flooring, and a flood of natural light. The formal living and dining rooms are appropriately on either side of the entry, with the heart of the home being the oversized step-down family room with custom trim and built-ins, large windows, and a gorgeous fireplace. The kitchen has been tastefully updated with quartz counters, marble tile backsplash, stainless appliances, and a breakfast nook overlooking the rear garden. Upstairs there are four bedrooms and two baths as well as a bonus guest suite with its own full bath. The primary retreat enjoys a large bedroom, two closets, and its own private bath.

And then there is a basement that you have to see to believe with an interior stair that leads to a grand space of over 1,250sf that is so pragmatic you will wonder why all houses are not built like this. The garage is another custom feature with over 500sf providing ample room for two cars plus work and storage space. The rear yard is landscaped with the same care as the front and offers even more space for outdoor entertaining. Just a few of the added features include copper plumbing, central air and heating, a central vac system, and the award-winning schools of this neighborhood.
