Accessible Split-Level Sanctuary

With growing teens and increasing mobility issues for their mom, this house was purchased solely for its 4,600sf and "good bones". The terribly dated split-level house was gut down to the studs, with most of the interior walls on both levels removed entirely.

The new layout has a sprawling 26' long Kitchen, with a 10' long island and plenty of space on all sides for future wheelchair maneuvering. Large windows and the skylights provide ample daylight into the space, creating a bright and inviting space. Open to the Dining and Living rooms, the Kitchen welcomes friends and family alike to the heart of the home. The new railing overlooks the massive entryway, which now serves as the open Mudroom. The added volume ceilings in the main level increase airiness throughout. A new Bedroom was created off the Living room with views overlooking the back yard. Down the hall from the Kitchen is the Owners' Suite, large Laundry room and Hall Bath, created from the previous space of 3 Bedrooms and 2 Baths. The new Owners Suite has ample maneuverability, an expansive roll-in closet, and a beautiful bath with shower, private toilet room and dedicated make-up vanity.

The lower level is home to a large Rec Room with fireplace, an Exercise room, 3 additional Bedrooms and Hall Bath, and ample storage and utility space - with walk-out access to the patio and back yard.

The house now boasts 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, and sprawling living spaces on 2 levels. Contemporary fixtures and furnishings as well as ample spacing make for a beautiful and accessible home.

The exterior of the home was updated with new siding, trim, windows and front doors. A new covered Porch and in-ground Pool will be added in Phase 2.
