Situated in Spring Avenue area within walking distance of Ben Franklin Elementary, the Spring Avenue Rec. Center, and Presidents Park, you'll find this stately and completely updated stunner filled to the brim with today's modern updates and luxurious comforts. The professionally landscaped perennial beds welcome you to the double door, front entry that opens to a foyer with plenty of space to greet your guests. The first floor features an oversized front living room/study area with built-ins, hardwood floors and a newly tiled wood burning fireplace...the perfect place to work or enjoy a quiet, evening cocktail. The updated powder room and additional multi-purpose or office space connect to the kitchen to allow for cooking and entertaining while keeping an eye on kids playing or doing homework or even offers a private space for all of those Zoom calls (There are 2 main floor "work from home" spaces!). The updated open concept kitchen with 9' shiplap and wood beam ceilings, and a "center of the party" island includes a gourmet stainless steel chef's kitchen with high-end appliances and cabinetry, a dual zone beverage fridge, modern hardware, full-height, white subway tile backsplash, Silestone quartz countertops, and a white Kohler farmhouse sink. This house was truly designed for cooking and entertaining! The combination eat-in dining room and connected open concept family room with vaulted ceilings, multiple windows, a floor to ceiling gas log, stone fireplace, and giant sliding glass doors lead to the back yard oasis and newly updated, oversized deck with privacy wall. The conveniently located laundry room overlooks the back yard and sits just off the kitchen so you can easily multi-task while enjoying time together. The lush, fully fenced, two-level backyard features mature trees, professionally sodded grass, and raised organic soil garden beds to grow your own vegetables at home. A newly installed storage shed also provides that additional space to store bikes, lawn, garden, and snow equipment. The second floor includes 4 generously sized bedrooms and 2 full baths with a large, vaulted ceiling master bedroom featuring a modern and newly updated spa-like bathroom with heated floors, a large, two person shower, double sink vanity, and a walk-in closet. The walkout basement features a finished recreation room including a second living/family room area, indoor jungle gym/play space, full bath, mudroom with built-ins, and two closets. With an egress window, exterior entrance, fresh LVT flooring, and extensive living space, this basement could easily lend itself to a future au pair or in-law suite. The unfinished portion of the basement also includes a second washing machine and dryer as well as a new, large utility sink with hand sprayer that is perfect for giving the dog a bath at home! Connected to the walk-out basement is the attached 2 car garage so you'll never get caught in the rain or having to clean snow off your vehicles. With approximately 3,500 square feet of finished space, this home is a timeless, updated beauty that has been lovingly updated with endless attention to detail and luxury touches and is now ready for its next occupants to create lasting memories within its walls. All mechanicals and roof(s)have been replaced over the past 6 years! TOO MANY UPGRADES AND SPECIAL FEATURES TO LIST HERE - YOU HAVE TO COME SEE IT FOR YOURSELF! Nothing left to do to this beautiful home except move in!
