A review of this reproduction center chimney colonial house for sale at 158 Pequot Ave, Mystic by Greg Broadbent. The top three highlights of this house are the beautiful wide board hardwood floors, large open rooms and a kitchen to die for.
The side entry into the colonial enters into a mudroom with laundry to the right and a nice half bath to the left. Through that you enter into the large open kitchen. Highlights of the kitchen are the granite counters complete with a breakfast bar and stools, a wood burning stove with brick and plenty of room for seating around a breakfast table. The stainless steel oven and hood are propane for the most precise cooking. There are French doors that open to one of three decks and patios surrounding the back yard. In addition to the large great room style kitchen, the first floor consists of two other living spaces; the formal living room and the dining room.
The living room can be as formal and clean a space as the current owners or it can be a very comfortable room while cozying up against the propane fireplace. Across the hall is the Dining room. This room is just waiting for you to entertain a large gathering. There are two entrances to the room for an easy flow around the large table
The backyard is full of gardens, paver walls, brick and wood patios, a beautiful pool and a private setting. While on the main deck, buyers will have the option of enjoying the warm morning sun or extending the awning for a cooler experience. The slopping yard has terraced gardens and attractive flowering trees. For those without a green thumb, the yard can be simplified into a number of uses. The detached two plus car garage has a walk up loft that is currently unfinished. It is presently used for storage however; it would make a nice game room, pool room or private office.
The second floor has four bedrooms. The master has wall to wall closets and a full a bath. The first guest room includes a private water closet and the remaining bedrooms share the full bath in the hall. The fourth bedroom is currently used as a reading room with built in shelving and storage. The wide-board hardwood floors continue through the upstairs and stand out as a talking point to all visitors.
Full finished basement not only adds a large amount of storage space to the house but it could also be a nice recreation room, exercise room or even turned into a home theater.
If the features of this house are not enough for you the location should put you over the edge. It is one of the rare combinations of modern construction, large lot and walking distance to Downtown Mystic. A night out with family or friends is just a walk, bike ride or short trip to restaurants, bars, shops, parks, docks, ice cream and more.
