1950's Ranch Style Home Gets A Masterful Renovation with French Country Flair

Gorgeous single-story Ranch gets a masterful renovation highlighted by an open floor plan w/ a fabulous flow for entertaining.
When you walk in the front door, you will be in awe of the fine finishes and attention to details. The 19' x 15' living room features floor-to-ceiling double pane/Low E windows, cast stone mantle, refinished hardwood floors, recessed and art lights.
The well-illuminated dining room (15' x 13') has a dramatic ceiling treatment with a magnificent skylight and a custom built-in wall hutch with glass cabinets and drawers. There is also a bar area with a Subzero wine refrigerator and more storage.
The kitchen (17' x 12') is the masterpiece of this stunning residence. Sleek "New Sanctuary" marble countertops. Wolf six-burner gas range, oven, vent hood, SubZero refrigerator/freezer, stainless under mount sink and new fixtures.
The sunny and delightful breakfast room (10' x 7') has pretty views to the lush landscaping of the over-sized backyard. Charming chandelier, perfectly placed windows with custom fitted Roman shades, walk-in pantry and new baseboard moldings everywhere.
The spacious and light filled family room (17' x 15') is accented by a vaulted ceiling, French doors to the back deck & gardens, energy efficient windows, slate floors, built-in bookcase (east wall) and cased openings to living room and the kitchen.
The exquisite master bedroom (14' x 13') is ideally located on the SE back corner of the house. There are three large windows with peaceful garden views. Art lighting. Gigantic master closet (12' x 9') with specialty built-ins for shoes, etc...
What an exquisitely appointed master bathroom (10' x 7')! "New Sanctuary" marble vanities and frame-less shower, custom cabinetry and drawers with new hardware, 'Grohe' plumbing fixtures, Toto commode, framed mirrors, new moldings and a nice window!
The second bedroom (14' x 14') is positioned on the hallway between the master and the third bedroom. Additional notes: Recessed lights throughout the house are on dimmer switches. Recent HVAC system with new compressor, condensing unit + ducts.
The third bedroom (14' x 13') faces north and has lovely views to the wooded block featuring an arched canopy of trees down the lane. Ceiling fans are located in all of the bedrooms. Also, cellulose insulation (18 inches) was blown into the attic.
The secondary bath (9' x 7') was tastefully renovated with "Dark Emperador" marble - vanity, tub/shower surround & wall tiles. Built-in travertine framed mirror, custom cabinetry, 'Grohe' fixtures, appealing wall sconces, towel hook and Toto commode.
The study (18' x 6') with recessed lighting, a large window and slate floors was cleverly added to the house. Note: the cabinet under the built-in shelves is movable. Washer and dryer connections are located on the opposite side of the room.
