With its postcard-perfect pondside setting, clapboard siding and private cul-de-sac location, the Colonial at 9 Midbrook Lane will appeal to prospective buyers.

Conveniently located just outside of town, the home offers privacy that feels worlds away with its woodsy, waterfront location. The property sits on a large flat parcel of land at just under one acre that offers plenty of sports and recreational space as well as room for outdoor entertaining on an expansive rear terrace.

The charming four-bedroom Colonial was built in 1936, but was renovated by current owners in 2009.

Inside, the home has been tastefully updated with marble baths, a modern kitchen and details such as an interior transom window in the entrance to the family room.

Just off the foyer, a cozy library is wrapped in bamboo wallpaper, creating an unexpected organic feel to the space. The library includes a wall of built-ins for displaying books and collections and its own powder room.

With some of the best views in the home, the sun-filled family room features a picture window perfectly framing the picturesque pond.

The family room features a wall of built-ins and exposed beams that have been stained and varnished in a high gloss to match the pine paneling found in the living and dining room.

The living room features a wood burning fireplace, pretty water views and access to a screened porch to be enjoyed in warmer months with a brick floor and bead board ceiling.

An updated kitchen features granite counters, stainless appliances and white cabinetry with polished nickel hardware.

The kitchen opens seamlessly to large step-down family space previous owners had used as a playroom.

On the second floor, there are four guest bedrooms in addition to the master suite and an office. Two of the guest rooms share a full hall bath with a marble basket weave floor and frameless glass step-in shower. The third guest room includes its own Carrara marble bath and an attached space previously used as an office.

The master bath features his and hers closets and a Carrara bath with a frameless glass step in shower and a wide marble vanity outfitted with polished nickel hardware and matching wall sconces.
