This is a rare “carriage house”- style free-standing home, sharing a common wall with only the garage. A private entry and the garage open to a slate-floored foyer; an open, windowed staircase leads to the 2nd floor living space. Dramatic high vaulted ceilings, 9’ conventional ceilings, and loads of big windows expand the feeling of spaciousness; the open design of the living room, dining room, and kitchen further contribute to create an appealing, comfortable living space!
The interior has a clean modern look suitable to a variety of furnishings. There are solid oak floors in the communal spaces (warmed by clean gas-fired hydronic heat), wide window sills, and the low-profile white window coverings – many of which operate both “top down” and “bottom up,” allow for privacy and light at the same time.
The open living area is flooded with light from windows on three sides, and offers a variety of possible furnishing arrangements including space for an office area and display shelves.
The oak floors extend into the kitchen which is outfitted with loads of like-new dark wood cabinets (with undercounter lights), tile backsplash, filtered water, and beautiful Corian® counters. The stove is gas and the appliances are stainless steel. The large sun lit dining area is adjacent for easy entertaining.
The large master bedroom on the same floor has two windows, an ensuite full bath with a skylight, a dark wood vanity w/granite top, and tile floors. The washer and dryer are in a walk-in closet.
A private garage off the entry has lots of windows and more storage space. Plenty of street parking means this space could also be used as a studio or work shop. There’s additional storage here in a under stair closet.
The architecture and subtle (yet colorful) palette of exterior paint assures continuity and helps maintain values in the community. A low rental cap maintains high owner occupancy!
It’s a zero-lot-line home (not a condo) with minimal dues funding features such as: on-site staff, a community building, playground, two parks (one with a pond), and trails. The dues also cover most exterior maintenance including the roof, window cleaning, painting, and landscaping services – allowing for a carefree lifestyle!
