Stately and elegant, and yet welcoming and comfortable at the same time, this grand Georgian colonial in the heart of Bedford--close to all the amenities of daily life--could be your new home.
Step inside the front door and you'll feel like you're being embraced by the twin curving arms of the grand staircase, which seems to invite you right into the family room.
It's a large house, but you won't get lost with the inlaid compass rose pointing the way!
The family room has the casually elegant feel so characteristic of this home, with a wood fireplace and oversized windows. There's even a hidden wet bar and wine cooler to help you be the perfect host!

The family room opens to the eat-in area of the kitchen, which looks right out to the pool. You can also close it off with pocket doors between family room and kitchen.
If you like to entertain or have hungry family members, the kitchen will be a delight. A huge skylight keeps it bright and cheery, the elevated island bar is conducive to chit-chat and mingling, and the counter and cabinet space and high-end appliances are the tools you need to create masterful meals!

Just off the kitchen, the formal dining room can be the venue for celebratory or holiday meals.
Between the kitchen and garage entrance there's a convenient half bath and spacious mudroom...
...and from the kitchen there's another half bath down the hallway to the living room.
The living room and office are at the opposite end of the house from the kitchen, and will provide more tranquil spaces for conversation, contemplation in front of a warm fire, or conducting business or study.
The oak paneling and beamed ceiling are enough to make Jack Lynch or Carly Fiorina jealous!

As you head upstairs the first stop will be the master suite, which features a wood fireplace and beautiful hardwood floors (which continue throughout the second floor).
In addition to the walk-in closet in the master bathroom, the bedroom includes a second closet for him, and there are two storage closets at the entry. In fact, there are extra closets and cabinets throughout this house, so clutter should never be a problem.
There's no wasted space in the master bathroom--just more of the same elegance and comfort.
The second bedroom has its own three-quarter bathroom and walk-in closet, which would be a nice suite for guests.
Fourth bedroom, with built-ins and window bench
The third and fourth bedroom share a recently updated full bathroom.
The third floor--a true full level with an 18-ft. ceiling-- is a cavernous and adaptable space that can fit almost any activity--movie marathons, Oscar-watching parties, Super Bowl celebrations...or use it as a music studio, game room, home business, yoga studio for you and your friends, or what-have-you.
As a bonus, the knee-wall doors provide access to a lot of storage space behind he walls!
The 2.2-acre lot features lovely landscaping around the circular driveway and rear yard, and of course it affords plenty of space for a broad patio and heated in-ground pool.
There's plenty of grassy space for playing soccer or frisbee, but the lot extends well into the woods, so the adventurous can do a little bushwacking and exploring right at home.
The driveway in front of the three-car garage is nice and flat, so you can practice your three-points shots without falling downhill; and the circular driveway in front is the perfect track for bike races!
From its bold architectural statement to its graceful flow, grand spaces, and vibrant outdoor areas, this home will capture your heart. It's the perfect place for entertaining friends and family or living easy and loving life!
