The sun drenched kitchen boasts a newly installed stainless steel range and refrigerator with newer cabinetry and a marble counter top. Upstairs you will find the expansive main bedroom with his and her full bathrooms in addition to the walk in closet and dressing area. Yet another full bath is adjacent to two large bedrooms with one featuring custom built ins. Beyond the cedar closet and back staircase to the kitchen lies the au pair suite with another full bath. The floored attic space with pull down steps affords the new owner the opportunity to finish it as a loft space.
The basement is the perfect recreational space with its paneled walls and a half bath. The laundry room and smaller bonus space complete the floor. Off the family room, you can enjoy the covered flagstone patio and admire the custom cornice repurposed from the Widener estate. The unique outdoor grilling area makes entertaining an event. The grounds have been lovingly maintained for bucolic views year round of the mature Catalpa trees and lush greenery. The home has refinished hard wood floors, new carpeting, designer paint colors and a recently installed HVAC system and hot water heater.
