The tailored black and white brick facade, lovely garden and flagstone stairs to the wide and deep front porch is the definition of inviting! But it is the incredible view into the stunning, light-filled and wide-open living space that will amaze! It is alight with super high tray ceilings and gorgeous wide-plank oak flooring, with the spacious living and dining rooms anchoring the space. But the centerpiece is the stunning, two-tone, black and white kitchen with floating oak shelves, oversized pendants, and an incredible 12-foot long island with a white quartz countertop and built-in microwave! When quarantining is over, this will be dinner party central! The dining room overlooks the gorgeous outdoor living area with a floating deck and pergola aglow with twinkling lights! There is a built-in mud area and powder room. Upstairs, the owner’s suite is spacious with double-height ceilings, double closets, and an extraordinarily large, sleek mid-century modern bathroom with double vanity and 2-person shower!
