PROS The front door of this 1993 Colonial opens into a great room, where a new kitchen sports gray cabinets, quartz counters, and a double farmhouse sink. The dining area has sliders to a deck, and a painted brick fireplace anchors the sitting area. Across from the dining room is a half bath. A mudroom connects to the two-car garage and the backyard with patio and in-ground pool. Upstairs, four bedrooms share a bath, while the master is more like its own wing — with an enormous bedroom, French doors to a dressing room or office, and a large bath with spa tub. For guests, there’s a separate apartment with its own porch and driveway.
