A peaceful setting welcomes you to this lovingly maintained home while it’s location puts you in touch with all this thriving community has to offer. Nearby are shopping, recreation, a top rated school system and, for the busy commuter, NYC trains.
There is ample space to spread out inside this four-bedroom house. Four floors connect smoothly and lovely hardwood floors add a traditional, warm feel. An eat-in kitchen offers Quarter-Sawn Oak wood cabinetry, granite counters, stainless steel appliances, two ovens, built-in microwave and a marble backsplash. You can eat at the center island breakfast bar that features extra cabinetry underneath or in the bright breakfast area, where French doors open to the patio and backyard. This easy transition to outdoor living encourages al fresco dining on the patio, while blossoming flower beds and the fenced backyard are made for gardening and active play.
The family room and living room both branch off from the kitchen and have wide windows with scenic views. Neutral tones welcome a wide array of tastes and furnishings, while the brick gas fireplace turns the family room into a homey spot where everyone will naturally gather.
Rest comes easy in the second floor master suite featuring a walk-in closet and full master bath. Two more bedrooms are next door, and a third bedroom is on the upper floor – all decorated in pretty pastels.
The ground floor media room has abundance of natural light with access to patio and yard. Powder room is also on this level.
