Kingsized Edgewood is Stately, Functional0 Comments
As the Edgewood’s brick exterior is clearly Colonial, its interior is completely contemporary. Bookend fireplaces bracket a totally symmetrical central section complete with a stately columned portico, keystone accented windows, plus a hipped roof with eyebrow-arched dormers. The portico’s copper roof offers a modern hint, as well as the side extensions break with tradition by barying in size.
Entering, you move right into a regal two-story foyer in which a staircase wraps around the right side. On the left, slim columns flank the broad beginning into a living room with a brick fireplace and den access. Around the right, double doors open into a large dining room. Integrated hutches fill the alcoves on both sides of the second fireplace.
A spacious, well-appointed kitchen are at the home’s core. Counters and cupboards line the walls, and the work island provides additional work and storage space. The high-capacity range offers six burners.
From the sink, you can look past the raised conversation bar into the richly windowed nook and beyond. Mirror image sliders open onto partially covered patios on two sides. Doors or short passageways link the kitchen to the family room, dining room, and office. A large utility room and three-car garage are just a few steps further.
The high-ceilinged family room is bright and spacious. Its bowed bay windows are topped by a row of transoms. Slender windows stand sentinel on both sides of the hearth, as well as a home entertainment center fills one wall.
Five rooms are upstairs, plus a bonus area and four bathrooms. A fourth fireplace warms the Edgewood’s luxury owners’ suite, which has a large walk-in closet and an elegant bathroom with a large soaking tub.
