This West facing 3400 sqft 16-room Colonial on 2.76 acres is gently elevated in a small yet prideful subdivision. The breathtaking property offers a viewpoint of far reaching mountain peaks and is a rare setting for telescopes and skyscape photography. The home site captures the beautiful open air breezes and exquisite sunsets to calm the soul. The expansive rear grounds meet the expectations of high demand buyers who value privacy but not seclusion. The house offers rarities not commonly found in classic Colonials of the 20th Century. High above the average standards in functionality and unique offerings, there is a 3 car attached garage, 1500+ sqft basement, dual staircases, and a well appointed bonus room, ideal for grand home office, music or art studio, or gaming room.

There are 2 half baths on the 1st floor and 3 full baths on the 2nd floor. 4 upstairs bedrooms in total capture tremendous light with enough space between rooms to afford more privacy than typical Colonial layouts. Of the 4 Bedrooms, there is a California King sized Master BR Suite with walk-in closet, and Master Bath with jetted jacuzzi tub and Palladium window to frame the night sky views. In addition, there is a second BR suite with full bath, and 2 additional bedrooms.

Other significant features include Central Air, Central Vac, security system, wiring for backup generator and video surveillance, French doors, recessed lighting, raised panel doors, and wood floors throughout. The Kitchen offers SubZero integrated camouflaged refrigerator, Frigidaire double ovens, extensive prep space, dining area, and deck access. There is a large, bright Family Room with fireplace and secondary exit to the deck. Interchangeable floorplan on 1st floor allows for versatility in room setup and design. Outdoors, there is a hybrid aboveground pool flanked by impressive hardscaping and illuminated custom fire pit; garden and walkway lighting, rambling open grounds and several shade trees.

While the home will need a few minor cosmetic updates to customize to one’s specific tastes, few if any properties in this price range will compare to this extraordinary offering.
