Welcome to this gorgeous French Colonial home that has been the joy of the current occupants since it was built in 2000. As you enter the two story foyer you will be astounded by the custom "Brazilian Cherry" (market name) hardwood floors. To the right enter the elegant and very spacious formal dining room, and to the left of the foyer is an equally elegant and spacious formal living room, both with 9 foot ceilings. Beyond the living room step down to a full in-law suite including bedroom, sitting room, full bath and walk-in closet with 10 foot ceilings. From the foyer enter further into the home to find the inviting step-down family room with gas fireplace and a 10 foot ceiling. The kitchen, with a 9 foot ceiling, is adorned with beautiful cherry hardwood cabinetry, and a center island cook-top set in a luxurious granite counter. You'll prepare feasts with the double wall ovens with convection heating. The eat-in kitchen includes a wall of windows that looks out onto an enchanting garden with a rock pathway. The laundry room with built-in cabinetry is just off the kitchen. You'll also enjoy the extra kitchen entryways. To the rear are beautiful French doors leading to the back yard, and to the front of the kitchen is a second door that leads out to a quaint little front porch. A large office finishes off the first floor. Make your way to the second floor by way of the formal front staircase, or the informal back staircase off the kitchen. Once on the second floor you will be amazed by the grandeur of the upstairs foyer. It could be another room. Indeed, it is a nightly gathering place for the current occupants who have many memories of informal visits hanging out with loved ones there. The master bedroom is truly impressive. The tray ceiling adds to its elegance. The sitting room off the master bedroom is large enough for a full set of furniture. You'll soak in the garden tub in the master bath and have plenty of room to keep your wardrobe in the ample walk-in closet. There are four more over-sized bedrooms upstairs, each with their own private full bath. Three of those bedrooms also have walk-in closets. Outside, the landscaping is mature and tastefully done. The home is set beautifully on a hillside corner lot and gives a very stately impression. The cavernous walk-out basement, with seven windows and a set of French doors, is waiting for your customization. This is truly one very impressive home. Come visit. Owner is a licensed Realtor.
