Guarded by two sugar maples that stand abreast the walkway, this Colonial has a farmer’s porch and a wide deck wrapping around the house. Inside, the main entryway is chandeliered and two stories high. The kitchen has a full suite of KitchenAid appliances, including a wine cooler in the granite-topped island. A breakfast counter is at one end of the expansive granite counters.
The adjacent formal dining room, painted a rich maroon, has been opened up by the removal of a corner wall.
The large second-floor master has a steam room in the bathroom, which also has a large walk-in closet. The two child bedrooms are currently both painted pink and each has good closets and enough space for a second twin bed. All three bedrooms get large amounts of natural light. A sitting area with a couch and television outside the master keeps children close to sleepy parents. The third floor has two rooms, is carpeted and is used as a family and a crafts room. The laundry rounds out the unfinished basement. Plants on the grounds include Rose of Sharon, azaleas, and a Japanese maple. The house is two blocks from Highlands Elementary and close to a playground.
