Dashing indoors and out, this must-see, well-loved colonial home is loaded with the charm one expects from a classic Chester home. An excellent central village location boasts amenities including the Chester Playhouse Theatre, The Chester Yacht Club and The Chester Golf Club. This interior designer's home has been renovated with tremendous care to maintain its original character. Natural light bounces through thoughtfully laid-out open-concept living and dining rooms, while the kitchen — with island and custom built-ins — sports French doors that open onto unexpectedly endless private gardens. Beyond, in the garden is a loft studio perfect for painting, writing or accommodating extra guests. Off the kitchen is a second staircase that provides easy access to a well-appointed laundry room. The main floor also boasts a grand foyer and a two-piece bathroom. The second floor features three bedrooms, a home office or nursery and a full bath with modern shower and claw-foot tub. The restoration of this character home includes hardwood floors, new insulation, new windows, new propane fireplace, as well as completely upgraded basement waterproofing, electrical and plumbing systems. It's simple relaxed elegance, updated for modern living.
