A rare lakefront Colonial is newly available in Readington Township’s desirable Lake Cushetunk Woods. Set on a beautifully landscaped 0.35-acre property, this premier cul de sac residence presents five bedrooms, four full baths and an attached two-car garage. Residents of Lake Cushetunk Woods enjoy a community clubhouse, outdoor swimming pool, tennis courts, walking/bike paths and the playground and picnic facilities at Lake Cushetunk Park. Non-motorized boating and fishing are permitted in the sparkling 40-acre Lake Cushetunk right in the backyard of this luxury home.
An open floor plan includes impressive details such as hardwood floors, high ceilings, custom molding treatments, plantation shutters, recessed lighting, a wet bar, two gas fireplaces and custom California Closets throughout. Built in 1995, the thirteen-room Colonial has been carefully updated and well-maintained by the original owners.
A transom-topped entry door edged by sidelights is an impressive introduction to the layout, which begins in a two-story foyer fitted with crown and picture frame moldings, a formal staircase, hardwood floors and three closets. Leading from the foyer is an elegant formal living room where the focal point is a marble surround gas fireplace enclosed by a wood mantle. The dining room is wrapped in traditional crown and chair rail moldings. Entered by a set of double doors, the fifth bedroom adjoins a full bath remodeled in 2016.
Continuing the open flow of the main floor is a fabulous gourmet kitchen featuring granite countertops, hardwood floors, a window-walled breakfast area, breakfast bar seating on the island, an outfitted pantry closet and a collection of upper-end stainless steel appliances from Dacor and Bosch. Connected to the kitchen is a two-story family room, where the gas log stone fireplace and towering circle top windows are dramatic design elements. Completing the first floor is a well-appointed laundry room.
Upstairs, the lavish master suite offers a cathedral ceiling bedroom featuring two walk-in California Closets™ providing wardrobe organizing systems. Remodeled in 2017, the master bath presents a designer granite-topped vanity, wall sconces, radiant-heated tile floors, a soaking tub, a tiled shower enclosed by a glass door with multiple body sprays and a seat, and a private commode. Three additional bedrooms, all with California Closets™, share a full tile bath.
The finished, daylight and walkout lower level showcases the same attention to detail as the upper floors. A spacious media room with inset ceiling speakers, a recreation room featuring a built-in saltwater fish tank, custom wet bar with maple cabinetry, a stainless steel KitchenAid™ dishwasher and granite countertops create a wonderful place for casual get-togethers. This level also has an exercise room, a home office with full-sized windows and a full tile bath. An exterior entry reveals the paver patio, fire pit and tranquil lakeside setting.
Of special note are the grounds which have been upgraded with $40,000 worth of custom landscaping including a sprinkler system. There is an entertainment, tiered custom Trex deck which was recently updated, a hot tub, full lake views, and Sun Setter extra-large remote-controlled awning over the deck. A screened porch provides amazing lake views in a three-season space.
Mechanical workings of the home include multiple zones of natural gas forced hot air heat and central air conditioning, select room radiant heated flooring, public water, public sewer, underground utilities and a generator.
