For the first time available on the market, this one owner customized brick home has a choice location within the tranquil community of Academy Woods.

The expansive and private backyard has uninterrupted sweeping wooded views that can be enjoyed from the brick paver patio in addition to the winter pond views. The architecturally stunning home was significantly expanded to create a more spacious residence, making it one of the largest homes in the area. Rarely found, the first floor master suite and first floor second bedroom or library are both significantly larger because of the customized expanded floor plan. The first floor has an additional full bathroom instead of the standard powder bath, allowing the second bedroom access to a separate full bath. Architectural features of the home include fine millwork, hardwood flooring, soaring cathedral and 9’ ceilings, recessed lighting, and walls of windows and French doors that take advantage of the stunning vistas. The light-filled four bedroom home also has a bonus loft space overlooking the great room and the natural views via the additional walls of second story windows.

The spacious great room is the heart of the home with a marble surround gas log fireplace that is flanked by large arched Palladian windows. The great room opens to the sunny two-story breakfast room with the kitchen just beyond. The kitchen has extensive natural cherry cabinetry with under cabinet lighting, an island with a four burner Thermador gas cook top, double ovens, Bosch dishwasher, KitchenAid refrigerator, decorative tile backsplash, and a large garden window overlooking the wooded yard. The gracious formal dining room has picture frame and crown moldings, chair rail, and fluted doorway details. The first floor master suite includes a walk-in closet and full bathroom with a separate shower, whirlpool, double sinks, and Kohler fixtures.
