The first floor features a large eat-in kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, and stone fireplace. A first-floor bedroom with en-suite full bath can also be used as a home office or an au-pair or in-law suite.

The detached 1 car garage at the back of the property features a spacious bay for one car plus an adjacent private retreat/studio-office. On the side of the garage is a secluded bluestone patio. The backyard with pavered patio provides a private and calm oasis, with a small pond and the area is surrounded by ornamental trees and a custom cedar fence. This home also features hardwood oak floors throughout, Hardie board composite siding, Andersen windows, Generac standby generator, sprinkler system, and recently updated two-zone central air conditioning and heating systems. *Living-room fireplace for decorative purposes only.
