This traditional family home in popular Newington Plantation is beautiful inside and out. The practical floor plan is made more open by wide cased openings between the downstairs rooms. The large great room located left of the foyer, runs from the front to the back of the house, featuring newly refinished hardwood floors and custom wood work flanking the fireplace with slate surround. Crown moldings, plantation shutters, and smooth ceilings, enhance the space. To the right of the foyer, a separate dining room can host holiday meals, or serve as an office, library, or playroom. Also from the foyer, you will find an updated powder room and convenient coat closet. Your new kitchen had quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, lots of prep space, two pantries, and a light-filedbreakfast area. The kitchen overlooks a lovely, peaceful backyard visited daily by many birds and sometimes rabbits. The kitchen will become your favorite family gathering spot for meals, conversation, homework and board games. A convenient laundry room is located between the kitchen and two-car garage. The front stairs have gleaming oak treads, leading up to four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The main suite is truly "sweet". It runs from the front to the back of the house, has room for a king bed, and includes two walk-in closets, a vanity-dressing area, and a large, new, fully-tiled shower. The finished room over the garage has a walk-in closet, and is positioned near the carpeted back stairs that go down to the kitchen. Two more bedrooms along the upstairs hall share the full hall bath. This hallway also boasts two linen closets. Quartz countertops, porcelain tile, and soft colors in the upstairs bathrooms will win you over.
Mature trees and landscaping include Southern magnolias, pines, crape myrtles, azaleas, and camellias provide a lush, peaceful setting for this home. Sit on the backyard patio to eat blueberries you pick from bushes in the side yard while you watch the hummingbirds at the feeder.
Come see what Newington has to offer: sidewalks and wide streets, wonderful DD2 schools, children walking and riding their bikes to Newington Elementary School, playground, and pool (opens in the summer for a fee of $265 per resident family, less for singles or couples). Walk or bike for miles on the Sawmill Branch trail, which has a Newington trailhead. This classic family home in a friendly neighborhood is waiting for you!
