We all have different motives in wanting to search for a new home: space, closer commute to work, downsizing, and so on. But for some, residing near a rural landscape in the serenity of nature is a top priority. If that’s the case, then this week’s Home of the Week has the property for you set deep in the heart of Rochester.
Located on an acre-sized lot in a very quiet neighborhood, this three-bedroom, two-level Colonial home has all that one could ask for inside and out. The home’s setting is ideal for the naturalist as it abuts pristine pine woodlands providing the tranquility one needs for the soul.
The fenced-in backyard is large enough to have a pool installed and play horseshoes or other yard games. The fence also has a gate that leads to a walking path into the woods – ideal for short stroll.
The front yard is immaculately landscaped with a brick walkway to the front door, stones and shrubbery, and thick green lawns. The wide driveway leads you to the attached two-car garage with two separate bays, which one is equipped with heat.
As you enter the home, the cozy atmosphere takes over as the home’s design adds inviting warmth with hardwood floors in the foyer. The family room on your immediate left lures you in with a wood-burning brick fireplace and recessed lighting to warm and illuminate your evenings. The room also has wall-to-wall carpeting and room for any sized furniture.
The living room to the right of the foyer has the same qualities as its family room counterpart with wall-to-wall carpeting, recessed lighting, and room for sectional sofas and large HDTV’s.
The kitchen nearby has all the modern amenities one expects in a home of its kind. Featuring hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, a large kitchen island/breakfast nook, and recessed lighting, the culinary artist in you will feel right at home conjuring up your next masterpiece.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining area, which is well lit with a stylish chandelier and large sliding glass doors that allow artificial and natural light to highlight your dining experience. The glass sliders lead you to the elevated backyard deck when the weather outside is too nice to keep your feast indoors.
The dining area also has hardwood floors and plenty of room for the largest of dining room sets.
As we make our way up to the second level, the master bedroom suite is grand in its size and style. With high cathedral ceilings, recessed lighting, warm-colored walls, and carpeting, this room both incorporates warmth and airiness, which are vital for a good night’s sleep.
The bedroom also has a spacious walk-in closet and a master bathroom equipped with a large vanity sink, a shower/tub combination, and stone ceramic tiled flooring.
The two remaining bedrooms on the second level mirror each other in design with wall-to-wall carpeting, windows, closets, and space for bedroom or home office furniture.
Also featured in the home are a second full bathroom, a half bathroom, basement, central air conditioning, and a laundry room on the main level.
