The Gourmet kitchen features  custom cabinetry, center island (with wine fridge underneath), wine bar, granite counters and Italian tile backsplash.  Sliding glass doors from Kitchen lead to 1,000 square foot deck overlooking manicured rear yard.  The deck, which was just recently re-stained, will be the center piece of your outdoor entertaining, with gas line for grill, outdoor plumbing, deck lighting and wrought iron for hanging plants.  The grounds are serviced by 7-zone underground irrigation system, as well as lit by landscape lighting and motion detection lights on all four sides.

Finished basement with recreation room is a great place for children to play, but could also be used as media room.  The basement also offers a half bathroom, as well as a pantry closet for extra storage.

The second floor features four bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a laundry room.  The master bedroom features double walk-in-closets, each measuring 5’ x 8’, and each containing custom closet organizers with shelving, drawers and pull outs for every type of clothing and accessory.  The master bathroom consist of a frameless glass shower stall and separate jetted tub, as well as a double vanity/double sink and linen closet.

 

The second bedroom is large enough at 18’ x 12’ to make most master bedrooms jealous, and also features a spacious walk in closet.  Two additional bedrooms round out the second floor.  Full bathroom off hallway with granite countertop vanity services these bedrooms.

Two zone gas, forced hot air system as well as two zone central air system, both newly installed and just serviced, allow for comfortable climate control throughout the home.  An intercom system allows first and second floor to communicate seamlessly.   The home is also fully wired with a security alarm system, including motion detectors, sound detection and programmable door and window opening chimes.

Every space in this home has been considered and carefully improved, including the built-in garage with automatic garage door opener.  The garage has been fully finished, including a GarageTek system which includes finished flooring, shelving, wall hooks and overhead bins.  Say goodbye to messy, cluttered garages, as this system will move all your belongings off the floors and allow more storage space than you could imagine.   The garage also has a transfer switch to allow you to easily connect up a back-up generator to power your home in case of emergency.

Even the exterior of the home features thought out upgrades to make your life easier.  Gutter guard system installed on all gutters means never having to clean leaves from your gutters again.  Paver driveway, walkway and patio, as well as Belgian block curbing add a touch of class and contribute to the curb appeal of this magnificent home.
