All the main social areas have been updated to this two-story home in the Country Place neighborhood of Washington Twp.

Listed for $519,900 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the brick-and-cedar home at 527 Misty Morning has about 3,500 square feet of living space. The house sits on a corner lot surrounded by trees, landscaping and fencing. Nearby common areas include a pond with a peninsula sitting area, a walking trail and tree-lined shared parking. A paver-brick driveway leads up to the two-car garage and formal front entrance.

Updates made to the interior within the past two years include the kitchen, hardwood flooring and carpeting, a new gas fireplace and surround, a wet bar including cabinetry, part of the main bathroom, kitchen appliances, light fixtures and the heating and cooling system.

Formal entry opens into a two-story elevated foyer. French doors to the right open into a study with a built-in bookcase and a textured dorm ceiling. To the left, French doors open into a formal dining room, which has a tray ceiling accented by oversized crown molding. An open staircase leads from the foyer to the second level where a catwalk crosses the foyer.

A step down from the foyer opens into the great room, which has a vaulted ceiling. Three skylights and four sets of patio doors with transoms above provide panoramic views of the landscaped yard and surrounding deck and patios.

A Heat & Glo gas fireplace is at the center of two sets of patio doors and has been redesigned with a streamline mantel and carved-glass-tile surround. Tucked into one corner of the great room is a wet bar with a quartz countertop, stone backsplash, built-in wine cooler and cabinetry that includes glass and bottle racks.

Two sets of patio doors open to a side-yard deck that has a fabric awning cover and a gated, wooded fence. Two additional sets of patio doors open to the back yard, which has a wooden deck and concrete patio that surrounds the in-ground swimming pool. The pool filtration system was updated and is hidden behind a wooden fence, and a wrought-iron fence surrounds the back yard.

A partial wall divides the great room from the kitchen and the breakfast room, giving both rooms a more spacious floor plan. The kitchen has quartz countertops, Amish-built cabinetry, including a large island that has a cooktop, bookshelves and seating for two. Some of the cabinetry has interior lights with glass-panel doors. Stainless-steel appliances include a microwave, wall oven, dishwasher and refrigerator. The breakfast room has a bay bump-out design with windows that look out to the tree-lined side yard. Updated lighting fixtures accent the island and the breakfast room.

A door from the breakfast room opens into a laundry room, which has access to a walk-in pantry and interior entrance to the two-car garage.

Tucked off the great room and accessible from under the staircase is the entrance to the main bedroom. The bedroom has a walk-in closet, access to the front study and patio doors that open to a brick courtyard patio with access to the pool.

The private bathroom has been updated with a leather quartz countertop on a double-sink vanity and a walk-in shower with a glass-block window and glass-block and ceramic-tile surround. A separate room has a soaking tub and toilet.

The open staircase from the foyer leads to the upstairs loft family room. Wood spindles accent the open space above the great room, and the skylights provide natural light. Three bedrooms and a full bathroom are accessible from the loft. Two bedrooms have private entrance to the bath, which includes a double-sink and tub/shower. The smaller bedroom has an angled ceiling with skylight, built-in display shelves and a walk-in closet. A cat walk provides entrance to one bedroom and across the walkway is a door that opens into a cedar-lined, walk-in storage closet.
