This custom-built Ray Whalen home enjoys a relaxed elegance, premium finishes, quality craftsmanship and impressive updates inside and out. The bright and sun-drenched interiors begin in the two-story foyer, which showcases the wide doorways, transom windows, hardwood floors, detailed woodwork and nine foot ceilings of the main level. The open-concept family room, kitchen and breakfast room span the east side of the home, with ample windows that welcome the beautiful morning light. The remodeled kitchen features quartzite counters, a beveled tile backsplash and stainless appliances, along with a mix of glass-front and solid-door cabinetry. Enjoy dining at the 8-foot seatable bar, in the breakfast room and in the adjoining dining room. The family room is anchored by a gas fireplace and built-in cabinetry, and opens to the living room as well as the back patio. A private office, laundry room and mudroom complete the main floor. The second floor offers welcoming accommodations for family and guests. The elegant master bedroom features a luxurious master bath with soaking tub, walk-in shower, dual sink vanity with Carrara marble, and water closet. The three additional bedrooms all have walk-in closets, and ensuite or jack-and-jill baths.

Beautiful professional landscaping and hardscaping throughout the quarter-acre lot. Dine and entertain on the tiered paver patio with firepit and seat walls. Additional patio and seating space at the front of the home integrates beautifully with the house and yard.
