Soaring vaulted ceilings, oversized windows, walls of glass with oversized wood trim work, elevated executive office, walkout lower level, first-floor main bedroom are a few of the highlights to this two-story brick house located within the Ashbury Meadows subdivision of Washington Twp.

Listed for $669,900 by Irongate Inc. Realtors, the home at 1457 Ashbury Park Place sits at the end of a cul-de-sac with a three-car, side-entry garage, a balcony wooden deck, a covered concrete patio and a tree-lined back yard that overlooks a pond with a fountain.

Inside, the formal entry is open with ceramic-tile flooring, wood-plank pillar accents, ceramic staircase and etched glass windows and doors. The formal dining room has a tray ceiling with accent lights. The staircase leads up to an elevated executive office through etched glass French doors. The office has a picture window with window seat, and the window is flanked by built-in bookcases and drawers.

Tucked off the foyer is the entrance to the first-floor main bedroom. The bedroom has access to the rear deck and double-door entry to the private bathroom, which has a two-person whirlpool tub, a walk-in, ceramic-tile shower with body wash and dual shower heads, an elevated vanity with two sinks and a walk-in closet with built-ins including an island and ironing board.

At the center of the home is the two-story great room with a wall of windows that look out over the deck and pond. Another wall has a built-in entertainment center and artwork nook.

Accessible from the central hallway and the great room is the kitchen with hickory cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances and mosaic-glass backsplash. There is an island with a gas cooktop and stainless-steel hood vent and a pantry closet. The breakfast room has two windows and a door that opens to the deck. A half bath, laundry room and access to the garage is off the hallway.

The staircase has glass walls with wood caps and leads to the lower-level family room. Etched glass windows and doors allow views into the media room with a tray ceiling, accent lighting, projection television and screen, media closet and granite bar that seats four. There is a dual-sided gas fireplace that can be enjoyed from the recreation room, which has a wet bar with island bar and wine cooler.

Patio doors open out to the covered patio, and windows surround the doors, allowing for natural light. A second set of etched glass doors open into a bonus room which is set up as an exercise room and hobby area. A bedroom and a full bathroom are also on the lower level.

A loft hallway stretched above the great room and provides access to three more upstairs bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The loft has a partial glass wall with wood cap. One bedroom has a private bathroom and walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath with each room having its own single-sink vanity.
