MLS#: DENC2059930
Subdivision: St Georges Crossing


Stunning Custom Built Cape Cod on .75 acre lot just above the C&D Canal. A turned 2 car garage and professional landscaping greet you as you approach from the driveway. The owned solar system keeps utility bills minimal.  Transom and sidelight windows surround the front entry to the foyer. Inside you’ll find 9ft ceilings, neutral paint and flooring, and luxury upgrades throughout. French doors open to reveal a home office. Further down the main hallway is a rarely available owner’s suite with a tray ceiling, double vanity and oversized shower. Two additional main floor bedrooms share a full bath. The house opens up into a huge open great room with 2 story vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting. The kitchen features 42inch cabinets with coordinating granite countertops and a breakfast bar. French doors lead into a bright formal dining room spacious enough for even the largest table.  Step outside onto the deck that overlooks the massive ¾ acre lot, something you’ll seldom find above the Canal. Beneath is a custom paver patio with built in lighting and firepit – perfect for outdoor entertaining. Fruit lovers rejoice!  A truly amazing collection of apple, pear, peach, and fig trees await you, along with blackberry bushes.  The property backs to community green space that cannot be developed, giving it expansive views and privacy. The finished lower level has a French door walkout, a half bath and plenty of windows. This massive space can be used in a plethora of ways – 2nd family room, gym, game room, playroom – the choice is yours. A separate room is ideal for a theatre room or a 2nd office area. The upper floor of this pristine home has a loft area that overlooks the great room, a 4th bedroom and a full bath. This amazing property has so much to offer and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
