Everyone's favorite "forever" house. This stunning 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath, French Colonial is prominently sited on an extra-wide .33-acre lot. Superbly constructed, it was built by noted North Shore builder Clarence Hemphill. The popularity of this home is underscored by the fact that it has always sold privately - it has never before been on the market. The lovely French curb appeal stands out with its steep hip roof and curved headed upper windows, all perfectly balanced. The entrance is showcased by a handsome front door framed by full length shutters. A vestibule with coat closet and powder room opens into a beautiful foyer that easily flows into both the formal and casual areas of the main floor, which has comfortable radiant heat. The casually elegant floor plan boasts gleaming hardwood floors, large rooms, high ceilings, plaster moldings, an airy, light-filled ambiance with a fresh young decor. The spacious living room is anchored by a pretty fireplace flanked by French doors that access the cheerful sun room with it's wall of east-facing windows and long window seat. The inviting dining room is large, open, and perfect for everyday meals and fun dinner parties. A Morgante Wilson-designed addition and renovation created an amazing cook's kitchen with custom wood cabinetry plus glass front display cabinetry, granite counter tops, high-end appliances, center island, and office nook. The kitchen opens to a charming family area with fireplace, skylights, mounted television, and access to the patio. Also added was a terrific mudrooms with slate floor, a covered exterior entrance, cubbies and a large closet plus access to the coveted attached 2-car garage and back staircase. Upstairs boasts 5 bedrooms and 3 baths. The attractive master suite is wonderfully-sized and privately situated, enjoys 3 exposures, a full bath, and walk-in closet. Each of the family bedrooms, is well-sized with hardwood floors, good closet space, bright fresh interiors, and easy access to the hall baths with heated floors. The second floor also has a secluded office with private access from the back staircase, a great view and large walk-in storage closet. An enclosed staircase leads to the 3rd-floor attic with its high pitched roof, dormer windows and fabulous potential. The basement level is impeccably clean, well lit, inviting and fresh. It houses a large light-filled recreation room with fireplace, built-ins, high ceilings and wet bar. There is also a multi-functional room with radiant heated floors that would be perfect as an exercise/yoga room, arts and crafts area or a 2nd office. The storage/mechanical/laundry room is meticulous with spotless walls and floors, great lighting, and perfectly updated and maintained heating, cooling, plumbing and electrical systems. The house enjoys a beautiful landscape with sweeping lawns, Ironspot brick walk with auto snow melt system, discreet side driveway, mature trees, and a large private patio nestled behind a picturesque brick wall with picket gate. It's all here - exceptional quality, a gorgeous house, impeccable updating and maintenance, a fabulous lot in a prime location, a sought-after school district, and neighborhood and a short walk to the Kenilworth Station, all the elements of the perfect "forever home."
