This is a beautiful, well-maintained 5+ bedroom, custom-designed home is only a 0.3-mile walk to town, parks and the beach. Pool possible by 2021 summer. Call me to discuss.
There are four floors of well-laid-out, finished space with great flow. This property can act as a larger home that comfortably handles and sleeps 26, or a smaller home that sleeps 6. We designed this "expandable home” to have extended family come visit for vacations in ways where nobody feels on top of one another.
On the first floor you enter the house from a large front porch where you can sit throughout the day with coffee, breakfast, appetizers, and good conversation. Entering the front door into a foyer leads you to many places: the dining room, living room, the hallway to the kitchen, or up the main staircase to the second floor. On the first floor are a two-car garage, a mud room with washer/dryer, an open-kitchen floor-plan (with new appliances) and TV area, as well as a full bath. The kitchen island has 4 bar stools on one side. There is a sun room off the kitchen/TV area as well, with glass pocket doors and a table with seating for 6. The dining room has glass pocket doors to close the space off for privacy. The living room with a fireplace, connects via large pocket doors to the game room with a piano and chess table. The game room has a closet, so you could turn this into a first-floor bedroom. (Note: there is another room that could act as bedroom, den, or office area on the first floor off the rear stairs.)
The second floor has the master-bedroom suite, which overlooks the nearby woodlands, includes a full bath with Jacuzzi tub and a walk-in closet. There are two guest bedrooms on the second floor and a guest full bathroom, along with the 700+-square-feet family-suite bedroom, which has its own full bathroom, as well. Off of the wide second-floor hallway, which has a large linen closet for storage, there is a sitting room with a high ceilings and a large, beautiful Gothic window overlooking the front yard where you can enjoy coffee, reading, or watching TV. The second-floor hallway also provides access to the family-suite bedroom, but you can also enter that section of the home through a separate first-floor, side entrance and a second set of stairs. Within the family-suite bedroom is bonus room that can act as a small office, sleeping area, sitting area, or personal exercise/yoga space. Through a glass exterior door from this bonus room you can access a private balcony with space for two chairs and a table that overlooks the beautiful nearby woodlands that extend along one side of the property. This spacious family-suite bedroom has high ceilings, a kitchenette that can be closed off by doors, and 11 windows with great western, northern or eastern exposures, and seasonal water views of Oyster Pond, and is a great place to experience the annual fireworks display in town for First Night. This family-suite bedroom was designed to function as an office, playroom, a second master-bedroom suite, an in-laws’ suite, a caretaker/caregiver suite, or a potential space to rent out separate from the rest of the home.
The finished attic is about 350 sq. ft. This is not counted as one of the bedrooms, but there is space for 4+ twin beds. There are two skylights and windows on each gable end, as well as access to a widow's walk (deck) via a clear “hatch door”. The widow's walk has views of Oyster Pond, sunsets, and the woodlands.
The finished basement can be entered from inside or outside of the house. It has another kitchenette, a full bathroom, another washer/dryer, another tv area, a nook for eating or playing board games, two additional large rooms with closets, which could be used for sleeping up to 9 people. The 1,110+ square feet in this area of the home provides an opportunity to give extended family or friends a great get-away space.
Sidewalks make the 0.3-mile walk to the beach or town both safe and easy. This home has natural gas connection from the street, is on town water and town sewer, has a central-vacuum system throughout, a detached shed for storing bikes, toys and lawn equipment, as well as an irrigation sprinkler system. At the rear of the home where you pull up to the attached garage, you can comfortably park 6+ cars. The home has good, natural light, and feels private from other houses. Most lights are on dimmer switches, and all bathroom fans are on timers. The house is about 4,800+ sq.ft. of finished space on all 4 floors (approximately, 3,400 sq. ft. of finished space on 1st and 2nd floors, 400 sq. ft. of finished space in the attic, and 1,100 sq. ft. of finished space in the basement).
