This beautifully updated home features a living room with soaring ceilings, a formal dining area, an open kitchen with a sun-filled breakfast nook, and a huge family room with a fireplace. Upstairs, an impressive primary suite with new barn doors leads to the spa-sized bathroom with a huge walk-in closet. Three more bedrooms and a hall bathroom round out the second floor. There is also the possibility of adding a 5th bedroom suite on the main level by converting the large storage/bonus area of the giant 3-car garage - otherwise the HUGE garage is a perfect retreat/workshop!
