Welcome to this lovely, young 5 bedroom, Colonial home located on a quiet street in North Edison.  The large, spacious rooms enjoy a lot of natural light and make this home especially appealing.  As you enter the home you are greeted by the elegant formal living room that opens into the formal dining room.  The open flow continues into the large kitchen with a center island, separate eat-in area and stainless steel appliances.  The sunny family room is open to the kitchen with a fireplace, skylight and sliding doors to the backyard

Upstairs there are five bedrooms, including the Master Bedroom with en-suite bathroom.  The expansive fifth bedroom with skylights could also be used as a great recreation room.  Enjoy the fabulous finished basement with pergo flooring providing additional space for a recreation room and extra storage.  There’s a two-car attached garage and a large fenced backyard with a play set.  This well cared for house is the perfect place to call home!

This special home has been well cared for.  Recently, some new Anderson windows have been installed. Gleaming hardwood floors are exposed in the living room and dining room.  There are also hardwood floors under the carpeting on all the stairs and in four of the upstairs bedrooms and second floor hallway.  The Kitchen floor was also replaced.
