Luxury home overlooks 5 landscaped, wooded acres -- Gazette.Net


This elegant, eclectic home is designed to take full advantage of the wooded and landscaped 5-acre lot.

Multipaned windows with paneled, blue shutters extend across the brick exterior, located at the end of a brick front path. Beyond the covered portico, the two-story entrance hall faces a pillared archway that frames the living room and a multipaned, side bay window with view of mature trees.

Adjoining this parlor, the rear dining room offers another wooded view. Both areas display hardwood floors and crown molding that continue throughout this level, plus multipaned windows that appear throughout the house. The dining room also has wainscoting and a traditional chandelier that conveys.

The dining room leads to the updated rear kitchen featuring stainless-steel appliances and granite counters, including a cooking bar. Three windows above the sink face the rear yard, while the breakfast nook displays a bay window that overlooks the deck.

Pillars divide the breakfast nook from the family room. Here, multipaned doors open to the deck and arched Palladian windows frame the brick mantel.

A hallway from the kitchen leads to a powder room and the foyer. Across the entrance hall from the living room, a multipaned, glass door opens to a library. Built-in bookshelves and cabinets face more arched Palladian windows.

Upstairs, the master suite occupies about a half of this level. The bedroom and sitting area provide hardwood floors with slanted ceilings and chair rail. The sitting area also features an arched Palladian window. Adjoining the bedroom, a large walk-in closet stands beside the master bath, which includes a jetted tub, dual vanities and enclosed commode.

Two rear bedrooms share a hallway bath and the front bedroom includes an adjoining bath.

An additional bedroom, full bath, storage room, office space, and built-in cabinets and shelving appear in the lower level. The recreation area features a wet bar, a full-length brick fireplace and a multipaned door to the stone patio.

The two-car, side-loading garage adjoins the main-floor laundry room with the kitchen beyond. Two miles away, the Sully Station shopping center is convenient. The public schools are Cub Run Elementary, Stone Middle and Westfield High.
