This is a 3200 sq ft. custom colonial on a private wooded acre and a half set over 150 ft. back from the road.
Inside, the red Brazilian cherry floors are matched with an open first-floor plan, chef's kitchen, and a ton of natural light to create a home that is warm and inviting. There are 9 ft. ceilings in both the basement and first floor. A custom-built mantelpiece frames a wood-burning fireplace in the living room. Wall-mounted hookups for a flat-screen, including Ethernet for internet connectivity to your media center, and built-in wiring for rear surround sound speakers make home theater setup simple. The Anderson Low-E windows throughout keep it sunny and light.
The all stainless-steel professional chef's kitchen is built around a 36 in. Bluestar RNB-series range. At 25,000 BTU's, it's the most powerful range available for a residential zoned building! A dual-fan Zephyr range hood vents right out the roof. You have gorgeous black granite countertops on 42 in. maple cabinets with under-cabinet lighting and a kitchen island. The French-door bottom freezer Jenn-Air refrigerator has the filtered water dispenser on the inside to keep the stainless steel face unbroken. It is attention to these kinds of details you will see throughout this home.
Upstairs are 5 bedrooms and 3 full baths (with a half-bath on the first floor). There are two full suites plus the guest suite, which has dual sinks and a separate shower room so guests feel right at home. The master suite is open and light. You have a walk-in closet, wall-mounted wirng for a flat-screen (including Ethernet, which is everywhere), and those cherry floors through the whole suite. The master bath centers around a custom tile and glass shower with a Kohler Thermostatic valve and separate volume controls for each head, including the rain head. A whirlpool sits in a custom tile deck and the toilet gets its own room with a solid pine pocket door
The home has a daylight basement with 9 ft. ceilings and is ready to finish. There's a generator cutover panel, two-stage high-efficiency furnace, Aprilaire whole-house humidifier, and a 50 gallon hot water heater. Out in the 3-car side-load garage there's a dedicated electrical circuit for the second refrigerator, 10 ft. ceilings, and the control panel for the in-ground sprinkler system.
You are less than a 1/4 mile from Rosendale elementary and Iroquois middle schools, less than a half-mile from an entrance to the Mohawk-Hudson bike trail, and right across the street from the 140-acre Lisha Kill nature preserve (an old-growth forest with 200-year-old trees and mile and a half walking trail loop). This home is a special find in Niskayuna and you should come have a look!
