Hidden at the end of a private drive, in a neighborhood known to host community-wide Halloween gatherings, parties and picnics, the gray-shingled Colonial at 80 Deepwood Road is set on one of the most desirable pieces of property town, particularly for families.

The owners say the property boasts a well-loved sledding hill her family has spent countless winters enjoying, and the half-mile drive looping through the neighborhood is perfect for strollers, bicycles or even a morning walk.

With 1.69 acres of professionally landscaped lawns, the house has been carefully redesigned inside and out.

The right side features all of the classic elements of a Colonial: the formal living room with crown molding and a bay window; a formal dining room with French doors leading to a porch-turned sunroom, and a gourmet kitchen.

The large, sunlit kitchen has been renovated twice by current owners, featuring an oversized island with Costa Esmerelda counters, a large farmhouse sink and lighted cabinetry. On one end, facing the private backyard and terrace is a lovely breakfast room. On the opposite side of the kitchen is a butler's aside with cherry counter and glass cabinetry for displaying serveware. Appliances include a Fagor five burner induction cooktop, a double Viking wall oven and a commercial grade SubZero refrigerator.

The left side of the home features a great hall-styled family room with exposed beams, a floor-to-ceiling wood-burning fireplace and three built-in window benches.

The family room includes its own kitchenette with a stove, dishwasher and refrigerator as well as its own separate entrance. This has been perfect for keeping snowy boots out of the rest of the house before heading upstairs to enjoy a roaring fire and hot chocolate, the current owners said. A rustic French farm door has been added, providing a unique design element to a traditional family room, as well as a full hall bathroom and speaker system throughout the space.

The second floor includes four bedrooms and a master suite wing.

The master features a large walk-in closet, sunny master bath with a sunken tub, step-in shower and double vanity, and an attached bedroom the current owners have used as an office.

The lower level of the home features a mudroom right off the three-car garage with slate floors and built-in organizational cubbies. In addition, the level includes a potting room, powder room and second family room with an entire wall of built-ins that is currently used as a music room.

The basement is fully carpeted, lending itself as an exercise room and craft space with plenty of storage.
