Rarely does a house surprise, such as this. Tucked discreetly west of Main, this home is truly a treat. Completely renovated in 2018, this family home was beautifully transformed keeping “eco-friendly” in mind. The main floor is gorgeous with help from Gillian Segal Designs, it offers a huge entertainers kitchen with a sophisticated palette. A formal dining space joins the kitchen with a huge wrap around peninsula with seating for 10. The back of the home offers a quiet get away with a lovely and large living room that connects to the outdoors. The floor is complete with a full bath, excellent laundry and storage. Upper floor offers 3 bedrooms and a stunning family bath.  Peek a boo mountain views from living room, back deck, and upstairs bedroom. Lower level had been converted to allow for family space and a separate suite area if one desires. This home must be viewed to appreciate the special details throughout.
