Feeling disillusioned with your search for a desirable Cape home? There's an impersonal quality to many of today's properties with their generic floor plans and open, fish tank-like interiors. If you've viewed a few of these homes you know how hard it can be to later distinguish them in your mind. As a buyer it's understandable that you might struggle to bond with them in any significant way: the best homes stand on their own merits and buyers remember and feel special when they are inside them. 85 Oak Ridge is a very special home. Built in 1958, added to in 1978, and extensively remodeled in 2010 (roof from 2016) this home shines like a new penny and is located less than 1 mile to Cooks Brook Beach. While officially 4BRs it is set up to function with 3, and the intimacy that it offers would make it a great choice for a small family or even a couple who values the flexibility of extra sleeping capacity for occasional visitations by family and friends. The interior is graced by hardwood floors, Andersen tilt-in windows and 2 character-filled used brick fireplaces that yearn for the crackle of an autumn fire - one in the dining area and one in the living room (Rumford style). The kitchen is a picture of functional perfection with warm cabinetry, vaulted ceilings, track lighting and handsome wood beams. If you couldn't cook before you still won't be able to - but you're going to want to try. Adjacent to the kitchen lies the first of two full-sized baths, completely updated with a solid-surface vanity and new fixtures. Everything in life has its place and the dedicated TV/media room, while modest in scale, is a great space both for when you wish to indulge in and when you wish to leave that all behind. I mentioned the Rumford fireplace in the living room - it makes a lovely focal point with the kind of simple country elegance modern homes seldom offer. A 1st floor bedroom - which could be the Master - includes a beautifully renovated adjoining bath with tile, granite and plenty of cabinetry to stow linens and toiletries. The upstairs features 2 tastefully decorated bedrooms, each with good closet space and the flexibility to turn one into an office or study. Be your best self on the cozy enclosed porch - read a book, sip a dark roast, or perhaps send out that latest tweet to your social media cohorts. Beyond the porch lies an oversized south-facing deck with the ubiquitous outside shower for a clean rinse after a day at the beach. Beyond the deck the grassy, level and fenced yard stretches out in both directions offering both privacy and beauty with a mix of evergreens and perennials. You can't bring the beach home but you can have sand in your shoes and a shell drive - the latter semi-circular with plenty of parking space for guests. A convenient storage shed in the backyard rounds out this most compelling property. Hope you will accept this invitation to view this unique home in person - it might be just what you've been looking for.
