Sometimes, you come across a home offering a little more of the things that matter most to you. When you see such a property, everything starts to look and feel like an upgrade. For instance, you may have only wanted three bathrooms, but you find one with four. Or perhaps you hoped for a two acre lot - minimum - and you find a home offering more than three acres.
While Durham offers great variety in home styles, the majority are modestly built. This home on Sycamore Drive is no exception as it maintains a modest frame, sparing itself the derogatory McMansion labeling because it's spaces are deceptively gracious and not gratuitous. For most of us, including large families, or those of us bringing multiple generations under one roof, this standout 5 bedroom Colonial can be described as having it all.
Built in 2002, it marries tradition with modern spaces such as a second master suite on the main floor. It is quality built, pristine and well maintained. Relish your location with a private set-back from the road and enjoy the established neighborhood on a cul-de-sac dotted with other fine homes. Not overbuilt, every inch of its 3414 square feet flows with well-intentioned family spaces with conveniences such as first floor laundry room and four crisp bathrooms (three full). The newly painted interior is open and bright with many large windows, shining hardwood floors, hardworking tiles, and two staircases. The main level flaunts a regal flair with tradition and taste in the perfect living room with fireplace and grand dining room embracing a passionate red palate.
With two master bedroom suites (one on both the first and second floor), this distinctive home offers flexibility and potential beyond what you’d expect. Completely set apart from the common rooms, the first floor suite complete with sitting room offers a perfectly lovely option for extended family. The large eat-in kitchen wants for nothing with gorgeous granite, stainless appliances, and rich cabinetry and the large prep island and breakfast bar offers generous space to launch that new recipe. The upper level offers bright and spacious bedrooms, fabulous stair-top loft for lazy moments, and large bonus room for fifth bedroom or teen get-away.
Outside, the well landscaped 3.16 acre lot affords privacy and recreation. Bordered by 152 acres of protected state forest land, this home claims Field Forest as its backdrop ripe for nature walks. Meanwhile, the driveway is level and ready for family basketball and bicycles. Close to everything, this property also features central air, front porch, large rear deck, full basement and attached 2 car garage all in Regional School District 13. Take advantage of the trail out your backdoor for easy access to three of the district's six schools. Your family will navigate after school activities like never before, and gain access to the brand new turf field for recreation and exercise. 34 Sycamore Drive, Durham is offered for $650,000.
