This wonderfully maintained McKay built classic colonial home is nestled on an oversized parklike lot. As you would expect with any McKay home….arched doorways, crown moldings, extra wide baseboards, an abundance of oversized windows, extensive hardwood flooring, solid raised panel doors with beautiful hardware and the fit and finish you would expect with a perfectionist builder. Some features to note as you wander through this very special home: lovely built in china cabinets in the dining room, beautiful brick gas fireplace in the living room, a sun room/den that is east facing to catch those morning rays of sunlight through the wall of windows, a screened porch with hand painted flooring, a wonderful outdoor water feature to create white noise as you enjoy those lazy summer twilight evenings watching the fireflies take flight. Note the limestone edging and the two private patios woven into the landscaping. You will love the fabulous color display from spring to fall! Even though this home is over 100 years old, the owners have thoughtfully added those touches that make it comfortable and convenient for modern lifestyles. The kitchen has been updated with solid surface countertops, tile backsplash and plenty of cabinet and storage space. There is a family room addition on the back that has a wall of sliders that overlooks the very private backyard. The second floor bedrooms are all nicely sized and all of the closets have organizers to make the space very useful and efficient. There is also a sunroom/den on this level that could be used as a nursery or home office. The bathrooms have been updated as well-the main bath upstairs has a Kohler bubbler soaking tub. The third floor is open to so many possibilities-crafting, play area, writer’s workshop, paint studio. Something special to note on your way up to the third floor-Be sure to look skyward. The ceiling is the host to the astrological northern sky mural! The garage was also a labor of love with its very custom design and construction. It is oversized and on the back side of the garage there is a greenhouse and equipment room with double doors that open up to the fabulous backyard. In the front of the garage, there is a pull down ladder for access to additional storage. The garage is a beautiful backdrop to the plantings that surround it. The current owners have loved living here for the past 31 years. They have been very faithful and caring owners. They are sure that you will love it too!
