The Little Things Count. An abundance of classic details adds to the home’s special character. A double-height entry, multiple fireplaces, custom moldings and high-end finishes impart a sleek, regal air. Special features, like the vaulted ceiling in the sitting room that frames a windowed alcove or the beams that enhance the living room ceiling, are just two of the architectural hallmarks that caught our eye. And, that’s just what we can see from the listing!
It’s a Modern Classic. Though it’s only one year old, this large, thoughtfully designed Colonial-style residence holds classic appeal, even while incorporating the latest in modern technologies and conveniences. The kitchen, with its white walls, white cabinets, and chic black accents, perfectly intermixes traditional and contemporary aesthetics.
Rooms With Views. Windows abound in every room, which is ideal since the landscaping on the roughly one-acre lot is gorgeous. We’re especially fond of the French doors and windows lining the living room. They provide natural light and give the space an airy, open feel.
