This 4 bedroom, 4 bath French Colonial sits on a hill overlooking a park-like yard complete with flowered pond and waterfall. The house's steep-pitched roof, covered patio, large rooms, and wide expanse of windows combine to make a gracious and elegant home.

The large kitchen completely open to the adjoining breakfast room boasts an island with sink, plenty of counter space, windows on three sides, and a gas fireplace that you'll enjoy for many a scenic and cozy weekend brunch. Stairs from the kitchen lead down to a finished basement gameroom/office. Also on the main floor is a full bathroom, a bedroom/office, and a laundry/mud room connecting to the two-car garage. At one end of the foyer is a beautiful hardwood spiral staircase flanked by a bright, two-story window. At the top of the stairs is a large bedroom with an en-suite full bathroom. Next to it is another large bedroom or office and a full hall bathroom. And down the hall is the huge Master Suite with its tray ceiling, balcony, generous walk-in closet with attic access, and large bathroom with soaking tub and shower separated by an ornate stained glass window. The 1.27 acre yard, fenced for privacy and quiet, sports a large lawn, a small woods, and the sizeable stream-fed pond.
