A contemporary, villa-style home made of brick and cedar siding, found at 4205 Sweet Air Road in Baldwin, is for sale for $675,000.
Resting on nearly 1.5 acres, the property is a golfer's dream with a professionally designed five-hole putting green that backs up to a meadow and pond. Brick entry posts with lanterns sit at the foot of the recently repaved driveway, while curved brick steps lead to the home's impressive entrance.
"This is a well-built house, close to walking paths and shopping," said Lynn Plack, listing agent with the Hubble Bisbee Group of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. "There is great outdoor space with a screened-in porch and balconies off of the family room and master bedroom."
A foyer with a vaulted ceiling and skylight welcomes visitors to the three-story home that features 3,468 square feet of living space. French doors open to the living room, which is filled with natural light from a wide bay window and a pair of arched windows. A wood-burning fireplace, one of three in the home, is topped with a Colonial mantel. Beyond a banister is the sunken dining room, and both rooms feature vaulted ceilings with beams.
The family room includes crown molding, recessed lighting and built-in ceiling speakers. Atrium doors here open to the deck. Adjacent to the family room, the kitchen is outfitted with GE appliances and panel oak cabinets with shelves and apothecary drawers.
A paneled study features a double-door entry, and a multipurpose room offers a full-width bay window and recessed lighting. The master suite is located on the second level, which also has an additional two bedrooms and full baths.
