Welcome to this well designed home perched on a rise in the established neighborhood called The Highlands. This beautifully landscaped development has gently rolling hills where the houses nestle onto impressively large lots. This home was built in 1987 for the current owners who have lovingly maintained and enhanced it. The walkway up to the front door is a well crafted with hardscape weaving around mature perennials and shrubs. A sun drenched 2 story entry to the home greets guests, and gleaming hardwood floors lead them through the first floor. The large living room, with fireplace, leads into a formal dining room ready to host family memories and dinner parties. In 2015 the kitchen was updated, with new cabinets, SS appliance and ample granite counters makes cooking a breeze. The pendant lights over the countertop seating allow the cook to have company or assistance while cooking. Sliders, from the adjacent breakfast area, fill the kitchen and breakfast area with natural light, and lead onto a large tiered backyard deck. Beyond the kitchen is a well sized family room with a stone fireplace and another set of sliders to the deck. Coming full circle back to the front of the house thru the large doorway in the family room is a powder room and sunny laundry/mudroom with garage entry. Upstairs, the master suite has beautifully polished hardwood floors, a 12 foot vaulted ceiling and a large Palladian style window. His and her walk-in closets flank the entry to the bath. The remodeled master bath (2015) has an infinity glass shower, tub and double sink vanity. There are 3 additional bedrooms on the second floor and a remodeled (2015) hall bath with double sink vanity and tub/shower. The finished lower level is a perfect retreat. It has 4 large rooms including a 2nd kitchen. The largest lower level room has a wet bar with mini refrigerator, entertain while watching movies, while having room for a home gym, a game room, or just great storage. The flat backyard and gently sloping front yards both feature lawn sprinkler systems. Outback you will find a fish pond with Comets and Shubunkins, Water Lilies and a waterfall. Mature plantings, and shade trees, and a shed complete the back yard. This outdoor oasis is the perfect place to watch the seasons change, barbeque, or hang a hammock. All this plus the security of having updated major systems (HVAC 2015), a whole house generator (2015), a security alarm system and a home warranty that is good through May of 2021.
