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 you stroll under the shade trees and past the lush flowering beds to the charming front door. 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath. Once inside the foyer you will immediately be struck by the high-level of quality seen in the extensive millwork, 8-foot solid wood doors and 10-foot+ ceilings. The floorplan 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 back yard, 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 SubZero 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 back yard is extremely private and quiet and is just so so special with the patio covered with a charming pergola. A three-car garage with lots of storage space rounds out this picture perfect home.
