hot property Versatile home offers an accessory apartment in Nichols Area

May 20, 2019

When the owners of the home at 111 Stones Throw designed the four-bedroom colonial, they customized it to cater to multigenerational living, with a fully permitted accessory apartment on the main level.

“The apartment has a full kitchen and is completely separate but is easily accessible from the main house as well as enjoying its own private entrance,” the owners explained. “It is convenient for grandparents as well as adult children needing a soft landing after college or as a home office suite.”

Tice Brothers built the home with superior craftsmanship at the end of a cul-de-sac in a sought-after Nichols subdivision.

“The Nichols area is known for its quaint and historic village,” listing agent Toni Tice said. “It is also home to many charming amenities including the Nichols Green, Bunny Fountain, Five Pennies Park, Frog Pond, the meadow and gazebo, Moore ball fields and Starkweather House. It even has its own, nonprofit organization, the Nichols Improvement Association (NIA), to preserve the community’s heritage and distinctive character.”

The home’s eye-catching curb appeal begins with the beautifully landscaped grounds accented with mature plantings and a Belgian block apron and bordered driveway forming its approach. Inside, Tice says the home has wonderful flow throughout its 5,396 square feet, highlighted by custom crafted moldings, 9-foot ceilings and hardwood flooring.

A nicely appointed formal dining room and living room flank the entry foyer. The heart of the home lies in the spacious family room and kitchen area. A striking floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace creates an inviting gathering area.

It is open to the updated kitchen with granite counters, a breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast area. Sliding glass doors open to the deck and enclosed screen porch, which overlooks the heated in-ground pool, for wonderful entertaining and recreation during the summer months.

Most recently, the home easily accommodated a rehearsal dinner for more than 50 people, making use of all that the property offers throughout the evening.

The main level accessory apartment is complete with a full kitchen with breakfast bar, a living and dining area with vaulted ceiling and Palladian window, a bedroom and a bath.

The second-floor master bedroom suite includes a private sitting area and master bath. The sitting room can be used as an office, exercise room or nursery. Two additional, spacious bedrooms each enjoy huge walk-in closets.

Everyone will enjoy the finished walk out basement with three distinct rooms and a full bath. The current owners used the space as a media room, a game room and an exercise room. This area has separate cooling and heating, plus tons of storage.

Additional features include a three-car garage, central vacuum, security system, underground sprinklers and more.
