Upstairs the hardwood hallway leads to five large upper-level bedrooms, one en-suite with walk-in closet and private bath. The other four upper bedrooms are connected with two Jack-n-Jill bathrooms.

The oversized 2 car garage opens into the tile floor mud-room and cedar lined closet.

The combination of great flow for large scale elegant entertaining and the ability to live on solely the main level makes this a sweetheart of a home for now and those who want to age in place!
