This is the One! Ideally located in picturesque Amherst Village, this pristine reproduction colonial has been beautifully maintained and loved by the current owners for 26 yrs and just breathes WELCOME HOME from every corner! Enter the expansive family room with large brick fireplace & pellet stove, wide pine floors and double french doors and windows from which to enjoy the postcard-worthy backyard and enormous deck. Then flow easily into the updated granite/stainless steel kitchen just off a cheery formal dining room -- this is the perfect set up for entertaining! Through the hall and past a full bathroom is a stunning front-to-back formal living room with large bay window and lovely brick fireplace w/pellet stove #2. Upstairs you'll find shiny hardwood floors gracing 3 generous bedrooms, an updated tile bathroom and serene front facing primary bedroom suite with walk-in tile shower. Don't forget the handy guest suite over the garage with large bedroom/living area, full bathroom and wet bar area that can easily become a kitchenette. The immaculate unfinished basement includes a fabulous workout area and laundry along with loads of storage space. With newer roof and windows, well maintained and updated systems, this home is just steps from the town library and kindergarten/preschool, the Village Green & town trails while being moments from access to Rt 101. Top-rated schools and a friendly, engaged town--it's easy to see why Amherst is so beloved! Showings begin 2/18 at 1pm.
