"Let me take you down, 'cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields." And we'd love to take YOU with us! The owners call their exquisitely maintained and improved home "La Fraiseraie," or "Strawberry Field," and they look forward to finding the next steward. This classic, European-styled home is ageless in its beauty and elegance. Built on previously cultivated strawberry fields, this 6200 sq. ft., 6 bedroom, 4 full, 2 half bath, Michael Evans home sited on .80 acres in the sought-after Maplewood subdivision is as fresh today as when it was built 12 years ago. Perhaps only the most discerning buyers will appreciate all of the appointments this home offers, but we hope the photos will help convey its beauty. You will marvel at the level of finishes! Gorgeous professional landscaping, a flagstone walkway and two covered front porches, premium shutters, gas lanterns, a tiered fountain, landscape lighting, garden trellis, and a courtyard driveway (featuring unique carriage-style, SOLID WOOD garage doors) are only a few of the initial impressions this magnificent home makes before stepping inside. Double, solid mahogany front entrance doors with arched transom reveal 10' first-floor ceilings, hardwood floors, an enviable chef's kitchen (that one really must see to believe), a most-impressive study with custom built-ins, a clever hall bar nook, multiple gas fireplaces, mudroom, 8' doors with crystal handles-and we haven't even reached the 2nd floor yet. A dramatic, split staircase with hardwood treads leads to a 2nd floor with 9' ceilings and wool carpeting. The everyday highlight du jour of the 2nd floor is the beautiful owners' suite, which includes a large bedroom, walk-in closet, and a stunning full bath with the loveliest claw foot, free-standing tub adjacent to a gas fireplace featuring a marble surround. Two separate, custom vanities with granite counters and a spa shower with frameless glass doors and two shower heads complete this retreat. A second-floor sitting area, three additional, well-appointed bedrooms~one with an en-suite bath and two with an adjoining bath~include custom finishes and ceiling fans. The convenient (and spacious) 2nd-floor laundry room features a utility sink and a natural-daylight window. The light-filled, third floor is host to two additional bedrooms and an upgraded full bath with marble counter vanity, tub shower, and radiant-heated tiled floors. Dormer windows bring tremendous light (AND VIEWS) to this quiet respite. The basement is ready to be finished and plumbed for a full bathroom. The fenced-in yard, featuring a two-tiered bluestone and brick inlaid patio with dining terrace, has 2' deep footers for future room enclosures-we can demonstrate the opportunity for expansion which would include incorporating the deliverable (approved) pool and outdoor shower plans too. The sustainable gardens, surrounded by lush, professionally landscaped grounds and more landscape lighting, are provided to grow herbs, vegetables, and strawberries (of course!), and also feature a timed irrigation system. Other excellent features include three zones of HVAC, Andersen doors and windows with European pulls, copper-style downspouts, a security system, and a well for irrigation. All of this is further enhanced by easy access to major routes, public transportation, and excellent shopping, including Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, two Wegmans markets, The Fresh Market, Assi Plaza, and Patel's Market. Wouldn't you just love to live at Strawberry Fields...forever? We can't wait to take you for a tour!
