Set against over two acres of park-like land, this stunning and light-filled contemporary home is a breath of fresh air and a break from the ordinary. Outside, stunning verdant views abound from every side and include mature trees, a full tennis court and deep front yard with gazebo. Inside, the beauty of nature is brought indoors as natural light and the outdoor views pour in through windows liberally fitted in every room. An open staircase on the right of the entry gives balcony views of the second level as you enter into the home, which opens into an inviting family room. Oversized sliding door sets frame a floor-to-ceiling stone hearth fireplace, making this room ideal for gatherings year round. Adjacent to the family room is a formal dining room. Through the sliding doors in the family and living rooms, a generous sunroom space opens to Trex decks on either end of the home. Immediately ahead, another set of sliding doors cloisters off a spa room. To the right, the sitting area of the sunroom is comprised of walls of windows and vaulted ceilings that lend to an airy and relaxing ambiance. On the other side of the dining room, the kitchen is conveniently located for entertaining and features a trompe d'oeil painting in the breakfast nook and granite countertops and Samsung appliances in the food preparation area. Through the kitchen, a two-story living room offers an ideal space for entertaining or more formal get-togethers around the brick hearth and coal-burning stove. At the opposite end of the lower level, a laundry room /mudroom accesses the attached epoxy-finished two-car garage. Beyond that, a full bathroom and atrium garden area lead into a home office/sitting room complete with built in shelving. A private set of stairs lead to a large bedroom space that would make this part of the home ideal for finishing off as a second main bedroom suite, as au pair quarters, or as a large suite for older children who need more room and privacy. Upstairs, two bedrooms sit side by side at one far end of the balcony hallway, sharing a tiled full hall bathroom. At the other end, a zen-like main bedroom features a stone hearth fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and sliding doors to a juliette balcony with spiral staircase to the home's sunroom. The en suite bath features dual vanities apart from the tiled bathroom. The dressing area is large enough for use as a home office and features walls of closets opposite a beautifully inlaid arched stained glass window into the large fourth bedroom/loft area. The basement level is ready for finishing and has ample space for storage as well as a room with closets and some walls, perfect as a playroom or craft area. The beauty of this home comes together in light filled rooms full of flexible spaces that work well no matter what the need, opening up the home to nearly endless possibility. Sought-after Council Rock School District (Council Rock North High School), beautiful large land parcel, and an easy drive into Newtown, New Hope or to major commuting routes to Philadelphia, New York, or Princeton.
