COME ENJOY THE COUNTRY! A long driveway leads to this magnificent custom home with an updated farmhouse design. The covered front porch leads into a two-story foyer, where wood floors begin and continue throughout the rest of the home. A nod at traditional design features the living room and dining room to either side of a turned staircase. Just beyond the foyer, the Great Room is anchored by a stone fireplace stretching two stories high and flanked by windows. A gourmet kitchen boasts stainless steel appliances, including double wall ovens and a warming drawer, and a 6-burner cooktop with hood. A large island with seating and a prep sink anchors the center work area, while a coffee bar visually separates the breakfast area. Pocket doors are cleverly located throughout the home and offer privacy if desired, then disappear when not in use. Case in point is the bonus room located between the Breakfast Room and the Great Room, which has many flexible uses. To the back of the kitchen, a mud room provides access to the 3-car garage while handy built-ins keep coats and backpacks organized. The laundry room has plenty of cabinets and counters, a utility sink, and even an extra refrigerator in case of overflow. The main floor bedroom was designed with extra-wide doors, including an exterior door, and offers a large walk-in closet and dedicated bathroom with stall shower. Upstairs the expansive master bedroom provides two walk-in closets and a luxurious bathroom. Two additional bedrooms and a Prince/Princess Suite are all generously sized. Finished space over the garage has incredible light, and with it's own full bathroom and back staircase would serve well as guest quarters or an artist's studio. The basement is large, open, has 9' ceilings and outside access. Off to the side of the home is a screened porch offering the opportunity for al fresco dining or a respite to indulge in the latest mystery. A maintenance-free deck wraps around the back of the home and steps down to a large paver patio. Never fear bad weather - propane generator provides power to one of the panel boxes. Views far and wide of the countryside. WELCOME HOME!
