The custom-built Colonial on Wahackme Road features 8,200 square feet of sun-filled living spaces, just two miles from downtown's shopping district and train station. The home is private yet convenient.

Set back from the road on a shared private drive, the property features 2.2 beautifully flat acres with lush landscaping, a heated pool and spa, and an expansive bluestone terrace surrounded by towering oak trees and evergreen pines for year-round screening.

Inside, a gracious two-story foyer features classic paneling with elegant floral wallpaper and a traditional guest powder room.

In true center hall fashion, the foyer is flanked by two extra-wide door casings, one leading to an oversized paneled dining room and the other to a formal living room drenched in sunlight from southern exposure and a traditional wood-burning fireplace featuring a marble surround.

The formal living opens into a comfortable family room featuring a large picture window with above transoms, a stone fireplace with heavily detailed mantle and a recessed nook with built-ins for displaying books and photographs.
