Love the character of older homes + all the conveniences of new construction - this outstanding, magazine worthy home offers both, it is better than new construction as it is loaded with modern amenities & charm.

You must see this home to believe the quality of the construction and thoughtful design. The homeowners spared no expense - that means decorator design features and high-end finishes galore. Another rare feature is the one acre lot size and view of Apawamis Golf Course. Set on an acre, with 5 bedrooms, 4.1 baths, 2 offices (plenty of space for virtual school), basement & additional living space on the large covered patio off the kitchen & dining room. The patio has a built-in Wolf gas grill, outdoor TV & wood-burning fireplace great for hanging out and watching all your sports. There is a second-smaller covered patio off the great room as well as an outdoor dining area with views of the golf course. There is great flow between the interior and exterior spaces.
