Rare opportunity to own in the coveted Bright Glade Farms neighborhood in the Downingtown Area School District! This upgraded Merion II model, built in 2016 by Southdown Homes, is the largest floorplan available in this community. The Merion II offers a wonderfully open layout with ample space for relaxing/working at home and entertaining family and friends. The home sits on a completely level, premium lot and backs to dedicated, preserved green space. The upgraded exterior features a stone facade, wide-plank beaded siding, and a portico over the front door. The sellers added an expansive Trex deck with a large stone fireplace and built in BBQ grill with additional storage shelves and concrete countertop. A 3-car garage is an added bonus as is the large bumped out morning room that the sellers selected. Upon entry through the front door, you'll find a living room to the left separated by double doors. The living room connects to a home office/flex room in the back of the home which is adjacent to the formal powder room. This area could be converted into a large in-law or guest suite on the main level. To the right of the entry hall is the formal dining room with chair rail and oversized crown molding. Continue into the spacious "concept" kitchen, upgraded by the owners to include a large center island, stainless steel appliances, a double oven, granite countertops, a tile backsplash, a coffee/wine bar and a huge walk-in pantry. Behind the kitchen is a spacious morning room with glass doors leading out to the deck. This space opens to a huge family room with vaulted ceilings and plenty of space for lounging. There is also a family powder room and dedicated mudroom with storage lockers and a coat closet leading to the garage and rear staircase. Hardwood flooring runs from the foyer into the dining room, kitchen, family room and breakfast room. At the top of the main staircase is the owner’s suite with a sitting room leading to the primary bedroom and ensuite bathroom. There are two large walk-in closets, dual vanities, a linen closet, a water closet, and a separate tiled shower and soaking tub complete this luxurious space. On the other side of the home at the top of the rear staircase you'll find 3 additional bedrooms, one of which is a princess suite with a private bathroom and walk-in closet. The other two bedrooms share the 3rd full bath, which is accessible from a bedroom as well as the hallway. There is also a lower level with an egress window, roughed-in plumbing, a radon detection system and sump pump just waiting to be finished! The owners added 9' foundation walls when they built to make the entire lower level feel extra spacious and livable. Additional upgrades abound throughout including light fixtures, faucets, millwork, professional landscaping, exterior lighting and more! You can find a complete list in the Documents section.
