Enter this home through a recently added screen porch into a tiled floor entry area and then into a stunning living/dining area with a wall of windows and an impressive cathedral ceiling. The arched windows face to the west and afford a lovely seasonal view to the ledges. The living room has a corner propane fireplace and hearth. The dining area is spacious and holds up to a 16-foot-long table. The kitchen features an island with lots of counter-top area for preparing those special meals and space for stools to relax and eat. There is an abundance of maple cabinetry and granite counter tops. Off the kitchen is an adorable half bath and separate laundry room which leads to an oversized three-car garage. In the garage is the utility room in which the boiler and oil tank are located. There is lots of shelving to assist a buyer with their storage needs.
The first floor also includes the master suite with a large closet and master bathroom. The bathroom is built into the turret. It features a separate steam shower and jet tub. The floors on the first floor are tile with scattered rugs to maximize the efficiency of the radiant hot water heat.
