Enjoy the ambiance of a country retreat within walking distance to town center. This exquisite 3,260 sq. ft. custom Maines cottage style home, with detached garage and carriage house, is nestled in a private park-like setting of approx. 3/4 of an acre. Charm exudes throughout with freshly painted walls, oak hardwood flooring, and abundant Andersen windows displaying picturesque views of the private, landscaped grounds. The front entrance opens into a welcoming Foyer leading to the magnificent sunlit Living Room with a beautiful fireplace with marble surround and decorative mantle as the centerpiece. The refinished hardwood flooring continues into the private Study with a wall of built-ins and gracious Dining Room with custom moldings. The expansive Kitchen features a newer Electrolux refrigerator, KitchenAid dishwasher, island with bar sink, solid white pine cabinetry, plus a desirable open layout that flows into the Family Room. Gather around the brick fireplace with hand hewn mantelpiece with friends and family. The cherry paneling, pegged plank oak flooring, and wood beams add character and warmth, while paying homage to the past. Enter into the 4 season Sun Room with striking arched windows, beadboard detail, and slate flooring overlooking the treed grounds. The main level is completed by a powder room with limestone counter top and spacious Laundry Room with full sink, large window, and built-in white pine cabinetry that can be utilized as a kitchen pantry. The upper level boasts hardwood flooring in all five bedrooms. Retreat to the Master Suite with ensuite bath, walk-in closet, plus linen closet. Each of the additional 4 bedrooms are generously sized and share two full hall baths. Gardens line the picturesque grounds and lead to the 2 car garage with 'root cellar' and carriage house dating back to the 1890's. Both were restored at the time the house was built, preserving the historic architecture. The carriage house could also be used as a 2nd two car garage and offers storage in an upper level loft. Anecdotally this carriage house was used by the Stokes family to house their horse and carriage and they would enter the property through the two majestic oak trees at the front of the driveway. This special property is one of a kind and offers a wonderful community, high ranking schools and a central location close to major access routes, shopping dining, recreation, and more!
