Description

Third-generation interior designer Jeff Lincoln writes, “The ultimate luxury is being able to relax and enjoy your home.” Relaxation and comfort are evident throughout this magnificently appointed “home sweet home” located at 224 Goldfinch Turn in the well-established community of Middle Run Crossing, neighboring the White Clay Creek State Park. This generously upgraded and meticulously cared-for Colonial-style house provides an inviting retreat to family and friends alike. The thoughtfully landscaped exterior and truly handsome brick face of this residence only hint at the many visual pleasures this home has to offer. You cannot escape the generous application of expert millwork including layered crown molding, sumptuous wainscoting, chair rails, and a stylishly adorned tray ceiling. Immediate features include five-lite sidelights with shutter privacy blinds flanking the six-panel front door, a two-story entry foyer, a turned staircase with an open balustrade, recessed lighting throughout, soft, neutral colors on freshly painted walls, plenty of storage space, and well-sized living and dining rooms festooned with hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling, double-hung windows. Notable main-level highlights include an open eat-in kitchen with an abundance of cabinetry, including 42-inch top cabinets, granite countertops, a Travertine-tile backsplash, a granite-topped center island, ceramic-tile flooring, a double stainless-steel sink, and stainless-steel appliances including a French-door refrigerator, a microwave, a dishwasher, and a four-burner gas range with a center cast iron griddle and a matching hood above. Full-view French doors from the breakfast area open into the spectacular 18x12 four-season sunroom and out to the connecting Trex deck. From there, an exterior staircase leads down to the substantial grassy yard. There is still much more! The kitchen also includes a large service pantry featuring a long granite-topped counter, a single stainless-steel sink, a Travertine-tile backsplash, and ceramic-tile flooring. The adjoining open family room features hardwood flooring, floor-to-ceiling windows, recessed lighting, and a gas-burning fireplace. Additional main-level highlights of this wonderful property include a discretely located powder room with a new toilet, access to the turned two-car garage, and a rear-facing home office with a bay window separated from the formal living room by ten-light French doors. Not to be overlooked, the upper-level features new luxury vinyl tile flooring (LVT) and new cellular blinds throughout. The upper-level primary suite provides a private, enchanting, and serene space and is generously filled with all the expected luxuries including a delightful tray ceiling in the bedroom, a walk-in closet with a new organization system, and a completely renovated (2019) bath that includes new plumbing, an enlarged glass-enclosed shower, a large built-in soaking tub, a huge double vanity, and a custom linen-closet system. Three additional bedrooms, a renovated laundry room, and a renovated (2019) shared hall bath with new plumbing, a large vanity, and a new sliding-glass shower door complete the second level. A full finished walk-out basement with an en suite is a big plus and can accommodate a variety of needs. Features of this amazing, renovated space include luxury vinyl tile flooring (LVT) throughout, a new vanity and new toilet in the private bathroom, an over-sized window in the bedroom, all new baseboard, and a full-view slider leading out to the rear patio and tucked-away hot tub. We invite you to tour this astonishing property at your earliest convenience.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
