A charming Colonial farmhouse inspired by timeless Greek Revival architecture offers a variety of modern updates and additions as well as original features dating back to the late 1800s. Set on over an acre of level property in Clinton Township, picture perfect surroundings can be viewed from a covered, columned front porch and covered back porch overlooking the deep backyard. Inside, an inviting ten-room layout offers four bedrooms and three full baths. A detached two-car garage, colorful perennial gardens, mature trees and sweeping lawns characterize the picturesque grounds just minutes from Interstate 78 and Round Valley Reservoir.
Highlights of the gracious floor plan include wide plank pumpkin pine floors, classic millwork, two fireplaces, high ceilings, large windows, plantation shutters, an updated granite and stainless steel kitchen, airy great room and sunroom additions, furniture-quality wet bar and serene master suite. A long entrance drive leads to this stately home featuring tall white columns framing the covered entrance porch.
Sunlight streams into the living room which presents wainscoting, pumpkin pine floors, a white-washed brick fireplace and tall windows. In the spacious, sunny dining room, numerous windows overlook peaceful countryside views. An inviting den lined in wainscoting and chair rail moldings could also serve as a bedroom since it’s near a full bath. Continuing the layout is an updated chef’s kitchen with extensive granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, white cabinetry, another white-washed brick fireplace, crown moldings, recessed lights and a door to the side yard for outdoor meals. Just outside the kitchen is a furniture-caliber wet bar with granite countertops and a bar sink. This part of the home connects to the step-down great room addition.
The great room is perfect for large or small gatherings; it has pumpkin pine flooring, exposed ceiling beams, built-in bookcases, designer lighting and a set of French doors opening to the mahogany-floored rear porch. This large, covered outdoor space has two ceiling fans and a set of stairs leading to the backyard. Another addition to the home is a fully-windowed sun room filled with natural light and currently used as an art studio. It is designed with vaulted ceilings, a skylight, stone tile floors and a door to the backyard.
Upstairs, the elegant master bedroom offers a walk-in closet and updated master bath featuring a clear glass door shower, vintage-style sink and mosaic tile flooring. Three additional bedrooms on this level share another full, updated bath with a double sink vanity. Pull-down stairs access a storage attic, and there is additional storage space in the partial basement.
