Upon purchase of our home in 2011, we embarked on a complete renovation. We have taken down walls, opened up entranceways, gutted and re-tiled all the bathrooms, and created an open, airy and family-friendly home.  Located on a flat parcel, there is a sizable grassy back yard good for playing sports. Dog doors lead into a mud room, making it easy for pets to come in and out. Overall, the house is in excellent condition.

Interior highlights:

  • Large, open family room with custom, built-in bookshelves and cabinets, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a beautifully landscaped back yard.
  • A spacious and warm kitchen with a large walnut island which easily fits 4-6 stools, a 6-burner Thermador cooktop, a gas fireplace built into a limestone mantel, two custom black granite desks, and room for a couch or table. Designed with recessed lighting, plenty of cabinets, and beautiful tile highlights.
  • Finished basement which includes a luxurious movie room with a projector and full-wall screen, seven reclining chairs with bass vibrators; an exercise room; a game room (currently fits a pool table, air hockey and foosball table); storage room; and laundry area.
  • Every bathroom has been gutted and re-tiled with granite countertops and a classic décor. Master bathroom shower has shower head, body sprays and steamer.

Significant improvements:

  • Replaced and/or refinished wood floors throughout entire house. Covered stairs and basement with high quality and long-lasting wool and Berber carpets.
  • Re-architected ducts, supplies and returns, and created 3 zones to ensure efficient heating and cooling; insulated all attic and crawl spaces with foam.
  • Upgraded electrical system from a low voltage system.
  • Replaced all windows with top of the line, double-paned windows.
  • Replaced roof and installed new gutters with filtering screens along entire roof edge, and replaced sky light.
  • Installed audio system.
  • Replaced distribution box and lines in septic system.
