A yellow clapboard Colonial, tucked away on Hidden Meadow Lane, has been updated throughout while managing to keep all of the old-fashioned charm of this 1930s-built house.

The renovated, four-bedroom, 2.5-bath house sits on a 2.27-acre level property on the east side of town. Built in the 1937, the house has all of the bones of a traditional early 20th century family home with the added conveniences of the 21st century, with its updated kitchen and baths that were renovated in 2005.

The home has a white picket fence along the front of the property with an arbor accessing the backyard.

There are two front entrances to this house. The one most commonly used leads into the kitchen and the other more formal entrance leads into the foyer.

Inside, the heart of the home and space used most often is undoubtedly the kitchen and family room. With white cabinetry and black granite counters, the kitchen has a timeless look with polished nickel hardware and upper glass cabinetry.

Completely updated by previous owners, the kitchen features a six-burner Wolf range with an oversized Wolf hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator and deep stainless under-mount sink.

Though modest in size, the kitchen offers a desirable open floor plan into the family room with a granite island serving as the only separation between the two spaces.

Wrapped in Nantucket-style beadboard, the family room features a vaulted ceiling with four large windows stretching the height of the room offering pretty views of the private backyard. The family room accesses the rear deck and terrace with a brick knee wall surround offering a nice outdoor entertaining space.

The majority of the property is perfectly flat, ideal for families with small children, running alongside and in front of the home.

With white paneling, crown molding and a large bay window with a deep sill, the formal dining room is traditional yet comfortable with a pewter chandelier and matching wall sconces.

Just off the dining room is a cozy formal living room with a woodburning fireplace featuring a mantle with timeless dentil molding.

The first floor also includes a nice-sized laundry room doubling as a mudroom with a built-in L-shaped bench for storage. The second floor includes four bedrooms, including the master and two full baths.

A detached barn includes space for two cars to park as well as a heated office space above.
