This stunning semi-detached Georgian Colonial looks like something you'd see in the British countryside, an expansive, sophisticated home for all occasions, the type of house that might make you say to the fellow next to you, in jest, mind you, "aren't you tempted to hide in a closet until the open house is over, and then live here all week?" Only for him to reply, "Why would I do that, this is my house," and then fast-walk over to agent and whisper to them for thirty seconds while gesturing in my direction. I had the last laugh though, since I bought the house on the spot and evicted him! Ha ha! (Just kidding, I just left quickly while feeling stupid.)
Off the huge foyer is a massive, bright family room, and a formal dining room fit for royalty. There's also a very fine study featuring some extremely elegant woodwork, and the bright, sprawling living room. It features huge floor-to-ceiling windows, and opens via French doors (freedom doors, dang it) onto the wonderful flagstone patio. The kitchen is sleek and spacious and features stainless steel appliances and enough counterspace for a regulation Slip-n-Slide. (The next trend in bridal showers?) Upstairs, the master bedroom is one of the most palatial I've seen, and I've seen a few, not only as a professional open-houser, but as a burglar too. Incredibly long, it has a beautiful salmon-colored marble fireplace at one end. The house actually has four fireplaces, so when the cops come, each member of the family can grab an armload of evidence to dispose of separately, instead of everyone trying to fling papers into the same fireplace. Awkward! And finally, there's a garage; nothing sadder than seeing a car outside in the cold, all alone at night. Here little car, does it cheer you up when I tickle your sides with my key?
