A classic Colonial sited on 4 acres offers more than 4,000 square feet of timeless appeal in a private, woodsy setting.

Built in 1969, the home has been tastefully renovated to include a three-story addition including an added family room, master suite and lower level.

The home features classic clapboard siding with tall custom made shutters featuring a crescent cutout.

A foyer wrapped in chair rail and hand-screened Schumacher wallpaper opens to a formal living room featuring a wood-burning fireplace, dentil crown molding and plenty of natural light.

A library includes plenty of built-ins and opens into the oversized formal dining room.

The dining room, which was formerly a living space, is larger than most, and features a crystal chandelier and gas fireplace with a hand-carved wood mantle.

A custom-designed kitchen features timeless elements like its soapstone counters, maple island and subway tile backsplash and includes tall custom cabinetry and an eat-in breakfast area. Appliances include a Jenn-Air refrigerator, Thermador four-burner range with a grill, and a Miele convection microwave and warming drawer.

The kitchen opens into the recently added family room, which features exposed beams, recessed lighting and French doors leading to a flagstone terrace with sitting areas. The terrace overlooks a large grassy area, perfect for families with children.

Previous owners widened the stairway to the second floor and added a Newel post and chandelier. The second floor includes four bedrooms, two of which share a full hall bath with a double vanity and tub. An en suite guest room, formerly used as the master, includes double closets and a full bath.

The master suite features large 8-over-8 windows that overlook the private backyard and allow plenty of natural light in. His and hers closets each feature windows and custom organizational storage. The master bath features a classic design with marble basket weave floors, an oval Whirlpool tub, frameless glass step-in shower and double Carrara marble vanity.

The finished lower level of the home could lend itself as a game room, second family room or exercise space.

French doors lead to an extension of the finished basement that includes its own entryway, which could easily be a great space for someone in need of a home office or space for a home business as it is private and walk-out.
