Absolutely "Stunning, Amazing, and Beautiful" . . .The moment you set foot onto this timeless home's Grand Trex-decked front porch with its elegant beadboard ceilings and refreshing ceiling fan, you know that this home is a gateway to a life of comfort and historical charm. Originally constructed in 1920 as part of the storied Jesse Wheaton farm and originally crafted as a distinguished Sears Roebuck home, this residence has been transformed meticulously to blend its rich heritage with state-of-the-art modern amenities. As you enter through the classic cherry front door, the soaring vaulted foyer welcomes you, showcasing the home's original oak staircase-an artifact that whispers stories of the past. To your right, an enormous 24 x 18 living room invites intimate gatherings by the original brick fireplace, surrounded by custom-built bookcases. The dining experience in the home's French country dining room is an idyllic backdrop for your dinner parties. Adjacent, practical, yet stylish amenities include a walk-in coat closet, a discreet powder room, and a large walk-in pantry. The kitchen and family room combo stretches a luxurious 30 x 24 feet, where culinary dreams come alive. Equipped with two high-end KitchenAid ovens, Broan hood, Thermidor range, and a Bosch dishwasher, this kitchen is a chef's paradise. The enormous island has a built-in sink and the breakfast bar peninsula invites Sunday brunches that open to double terraced Trex decks-an entertainer's delight overlooking the meticulously manicured lawns and vibrant garden. Upstairs, the private living quarters feature 4-5 bedrooms, radiating elegance and comfort. The master suite serves as a luxurious retreat, complete with a vaulted ceiling, a custom Elfa walk-in closet, and an en-suite bathroom. This spa-like bathroom is equipped with slate flooring, rich cherry cabinets, and a spacious soaker tub for two, strategically placed by windows that frame tranquil garden views. Additionally, the suite includes a separate toilet and double walk-in steam shower, elevating the relaxation experience. Radiant heated floors add warmth and comfort. The second bathroom is equally impressive, featuring dual Corian sinks, a separate bath and toilet area, a solar tube for natural light and radiant heated floors. Each of the other bedrooms have their own charm with vaulted ceilings or walk-in closets, providing ample personal space.
