More than a house, this is the place you can’t wait to come home to! Tucked back from the street and privately situated in picturesque Middlefork Farms, you will immediately fall in love! There is almost a storybook charm as your stroll under the shade trees and past the lush flowering beds to the charming front door. Once inside the foyer you will immediately be struck by the high level of quality seen in the extensive millwork, 8′ solid wood doors and 10’+ ceilings. The floor plan is a combination of meaningful work and casual living space. There is a formal living room with a gorgeous stone fireplace that might also be used as a second office. The primary office anchors the foyer with a handsome glass paned door allowing lots of natural light to flow through the house. The family room is the nucleus of the house with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the backyard, a fireplace wall flanked with built in bookcases, and an open staircase leading to the lower level beyond. Adjacent to the family room is the well built out eat in kitchen featuring a huge Sub Zero frig, Commercial style Viking 6 burner + griddle and double ovens, an island with a work sink, and an awesome built in pantry. The master suite has a lovely sitting area, his and her walk in closets and spa like bath with rain head shower, whirlpool tub, and tall sinks. The family bedrooms are all generously sized with private baths and walk in closets. The English basement is phenomenal with deep windows lined with timber allowing the natural setting outside to flow right into the lower level space. Home to a second family room with a handsome fireplace as well as a wine room, exercise room, game room, 5th bedroom and full bath, this is a space that does not feel like a basement! The backyard is extremely private and quiet and is just so so special with the blue stone patio covered with a charming pergola. A three car garage with lots of storage space rounds out this picture perfect home!
