Exceptional setting and exceptional home in fully and tastefully updated condition on an almost 1.5 acre fenced and gated parcel with pool embedded into the conserved grounds of Appleford. A substantial double door opens to a wide foyer with stunning forward views through the handsome living room with fireplace overlooking the rear yard and pool. Richly stained hardwood flooring, found throughout the full first level, leads the eye from space to space further highlighting the home's open floor plan. A wide cased opening from living room to dining room and beyond to the sparkling white fully custom kitchen provides extraordinary views in all rooms from the home's oversized floor to ceiling window and unparalleled natural light. The well planned and appointed kitchen has white cabinets, soapstone countertops and requisite high-end appliances. A seated island performs for casual dining while a step down breakfast area surrounded by windows feels almost like dining outdoors! A wet bar offers flat service space and additional display cabinetry for stemware and wine storage. The current owners saw to the comprehensive renovation of the home and insisted on creating a private home office just off the kitchen. Warmed by southern exposure, the home office provides quiet homework or work space as well as terrific hideaway and locked storage for printers, files and documents. Previously purposed as a first level master bedroom suite, now used as play and home-school area, with this two room suite allowing for maximum flexibility in floor plan. Ascend the main staircase to the primary bedroom suite. The addition of a large dormer provides treetops views of the rear yard. An exquisite bathroom offers an under window soaking tub, stone topped vanities and large seated shower. This main suite offers three closets, one walk-in and two reach-in, for generous outfitted storage. Two large bedrooms share a well designed hall bath while a suite best accessed from the secondary stairs has a bath and vaulted ceiling with natural wood ceiling detail. A second level laundry and plentiful closets space complete this level. A mostly finished lower or garden level opens to the pool as well as to a flat side play-yard. The recreation room offers details including exposed stone, natural wood, and massive fireplace, complimented by large glass doors to the terrace. A bar area is ideal for parties, and large renovated spa-level bath and sauna serve the pool and gym area. A provisions closet and additional seated computer/work area, as well as an unfinished storage room, round out the lower level. Idyllic setting, elevated professionally selected finishes, renovated turn-key home. Look no further.
