A Tokeneke Colonial on Delafield Island Road offers a home well suited for the modern lifestyle with added country charm.

The country Colonial is in the private Tokeneke Association with a private beach and dock, communitywide events and private police patrol. The house is just a short stroll from town.

Set back from the road, the stone and clapboard-sided home has an attached three-car garage with rustic barn-style doors and a covered front porch.

Four sets of French doors, flanked by tall black shutters, open to the stately front porch studded with six columns.

An oversized glass pane door with dual sidelights opens into the foyer of the meticulously maintained home, which has quality craftsmanship throughout.

The center of the home is its spacious kitchen, complete with a breakfast nook, large center island and state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances.

The kitchen is nestled between two family living spaces with an open flow for easy entertaining.

A study doubles as a second family or living room, with a wet bar complete with a wine refrigerator and vessel sink.

A second family room features a floor-to-ceiling fieldstone fireplace, three walls of windows allowing in plenty of natural light, and built-in shelves provide a spot for displaying photographs and collections.

A private first-floor master suite occupies an entire wing of the home. The suite features a oversized walk-in closet designed by California Closets, and a lovely master bath with a deep soaking tub, dual vanity and step-in shower.

The second floor includes two generous-sized en suite guest bedrooms, as well as two additional guest bedrooms sharing a full bath with a dual Carrara marble vanity.

An additional laundry room is also available on the second floor.

The lower level features hardwood floors, recessed lights and nine foot ceilings throughout, making it a versatile space for new owners.

A sixth guest bedroom, on the lower level, could also be used as an exercise room, as it has access to a separate sauna and full bath with a steam shower.
