Something special! This gem of a colonial, situated in the beautiful area where Barclay and the Hunt Tract collide, is one of the most spectacular hideaways you can imagine! This private home sits atop a generous lot of nearly 2 acres and overlooks a serene and forested expanse with mature mountain laurels and blooming perennials. You simply must stand on the fabulous back patio and take in the beauty. Just imagine the entertaining you could do from this wonderful outdoor space. The home sits on a high & dry lot, with fabulous views and tons of privacy. Inside is a blank canvas. The bones of this home speak for themselves - a time-tested colonial layout, with an open-flow kitchen, dining and living space. Gorgeous original hardwood floors are throughout - including under all upstairs carpeting. The family room addition is flanked by windows and skylights so you can continuously enjoy your spectacular view throughout any season and in any weather. A major advantage of this home is the downstairs in-law suite, complete with an oversized bathroom and walk-in closet. The formal living room features an elegant and warming fireplace, and plenty of space for holiday gatherings. Upstairs are 4 good sized bedrooms, each with pretty views of the grounds. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack & Jill full bath, and a 2nd full bath is also on this level. The full basement offers endless possibilities! This home has been lovingly and carefully maintained, and it shows. Please also take note of the u-shaped driveway and the desirable detached and oversized 3-car garage. A studio sits above the garage, complete with heat, electric and lighting. This is the ultimate bonus space for recreational use. The location is unparalleled - minutes to Rte 70, 295, minutes to Whole Foods, a quick trip to the mall, fine dining and coffee shops. Two nearby swim clubs, multiple walking trails and historical sites, easy access to renowned playgrounds and recreational spaces. Come experience this one of a kind home & spectacular views for yourself!
