Hidden among the trees on a 2.19-acre, corner lot, this brick two-story has cozy casual spaces with grand formal rooms. A finished basement allows for entertaining, and a main bedroom has room for a quiet retreat.

Listed for $539,900 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the brick two-story at 2054 Winding Brook Way has about 4,630 square feet of living space. The house is surrounded by mature trees but has a manicured lawn and garden beds. The back yard has a corral fence, which is surrounded by a mature tree line.

The house has a two-car, attached garage with storage room and a two-car, heated detached garage with attic storage.

Formal entry opens into a two-story foyer with open staircase that wraps around to the upstairs. A grand chandelier hangs above. To the left is the formal living room, which has French doors that open into a study with built-in bookcases and an arched window with window seat. To the right is the banquet-size dining room with a tray ceiling and double crown molding.

The entry hallway leads back to a one-step sunken great room, which is the centerpiece to the home as it has access to the study and breakfast room to complete a circular floor plan. A stone gas fireplace with a slate hearth and wood-beam mantel is flanked by windows.

An island with a granite countertop and gas cooktop provides additional working space within the kitchen that is filled with 42-inch cherry cabinetry. There is a double-door pantry and stainless-steel appliances. Patio doors open from the breakfast room into the screen-enclosed porch.

A back staircase from the kitchen leads to the second level where four bedrooms and three full bathrooms are located. Double doors open into the main bedroom suite, which has a sitting area and double door walk-in closet that passes through a double-door entrance into the bathroom.

A second set of doors opens from the bedroom to the bathroom, which was updated about three years ago. The bath has a double-sink vanity with granite countertop, a whirlpool tub and a walk-in shower with ceramic-tile surround, multiple shower heads and a glass door.

Another bedroom has a private bathroom with a single-sink vanity and tub/shower. Two other bedrooms have double-door closets, and the guest bath features a single-sink vanity and tub/shower.

A door off the entry hallway opens to the basement stairwell. The basement has been finished into a recreation room with a tray ceiling. A kitchenette has beveled-edged countertops and cherry cabinetry that include bottle and glass racks. There is a small sink and nooks for small appliances.

A pass-through counter leads into a billiards room, which has two built-in corner cabinets for equipment storage. A bonus room could be used as an exercise room or finished storage. There are three closets; one is for storage while the other two open to the home’s mechanical systems.
