You will be glad you showed it with all its grandeur. This Colonial offers something for everyone, a multi-generational family, an apartment with a private staircase, that could accommodate in-laws, or a nanny or staff, which makes it easy in many scenarios. The grand foyer entrance sets the tone for the rest of the home. Sunken living room with F.P., hardwood floors, beautiful moldings, 10ft. ceilings. and a grand staircase for many family portraits. A detached 4-car garage with additional storage under the building. Don’t miss the old ice-box door off the kitchen porch too. The remodeled top-of-the-line kitchen offers all new appliances, granite counters, an island breakfast bar, a walk-in pantry that offers plenty of room for prepping meals, and room for all day coffee bar!
