A beautiful, sprawling, 6 bedroom, 4.5 bath, shingle-style country home situated on gorgeous acre of property in a wonderful private setting at the end of one of Northfield's prettiest lanes. The house is large, updated, meticulously maintained, filled with light and wonderfully decorated and appointed. Traditional elements combine with charming rustic materials to create a warm and inviting home that lives and entertains perfectly. The floor plan flows easily from room to room taking advantage of the amazing outdoor views. The rooms are spacious with high ceilings, hardwood floors, abundant windows, and a welcoming, fresh decor. Recently expanded and renovated, the large dream kitchen is the heart of this home and features great looking custom cabinetry, granite counters, high-end appliances, a large island, abundant storage and a charming eating area complete with window seat and wood-burning fireplace. A stunning gallery space with multiple French doors opening to the patio area spans the rear of the house tying the main rooms together. The lovely living and dining rooms are located in the center of the house and are open, light and airy. The huge knotty pine paneled family room has a vaulted and beamed ceiling, is flanked by large windows and anchored on one end by its grand fireplace with gracious seating area and on the other by a wall of built-ins - the room is multi-functional. Beyond the family room is a charming enclosed porch overlooking the patio and tennis court. In the same wing there is a private office and full bath. The 2-car garage is accessed by a back hall (off the kitchen) with large mud room, laundry room and half bath. On the opposite end of the house is the main-floor bedroom wing showcased by a gorgeous master suite with large updated spa-like bath. There are also 2 family bedrooms and updated hall bath nearby. A 2005 addition created a large 2nd story with 3 well-sized bedrooms, a great hall bath with tub, separate shower and double vanities, a seating area and 2 storage wings. The basement houses the perfect recreation area - roomy, cozy, and durable with plenty of room for a large game table, big screen television, and exercise equipment plus a small kitchen and tons of storage. The property that surrounds this wonderful family home is stunning. The addition of a circular driveway was a game changer creating easy access, ample parking and refining the curb appeal. The back of the property is wooded and private, there are lovely perennial and annual gardens throughout, brick and stone walkways, a fabulous patio with built-in grill and room for multiple seating areas. And then of course there is the outstanding centerpiece - a full size tennis court, perfectly maintained and surfaced, the court is multi-functional for players of all ages - tennis, basketball and it can be frozen for hockey. The location of this exceptional family home is ideal, private and quiet, yet just minutes from both schools, the Village, shopping, and transportation.
