The Ramsgate is a modern day Cape Cod which is known for its function rather than form. Its' historic character of a steep roof that quickly sheds snow and rain, dormers for extra light and air in the loft, HardiPlank siding and shingles for energy efficiency, and the centrally located fireplace is the perfect place to get away from the everyday panic and chaos. The open kitchen provides the chef with plenty of prep space and conversation with guests. Cozy up in the great room in front of the twilight fireplace, "the heart of the home" which you can also enjoy on your private deck! Master suite on the main level is appointed with a plush 5 piece master bathroom, that will leave you feeling like you spent the day at the spa. A guest bedroom or study, full bathroom, and the laundry room complete your main level living. Upstairs enjoys a junior suite, a loft that overlooks the heart of the home, and a bonus room that is a perfect space to have a game night! The finished basement with 9' tall ceilings boasts a huge family room with a wet bar perfect for entertaining! Two over-sized bedrooms with walk in closets and a full bathroom in the basement provide plenty of space for the modern day family and guests! Good days start here!

About the Interior Design of the Home:
The Ramsgate combines a cool, soothing palette of colors with warm coastal textures to create a restful and relaxing place to call home! Terri Mitchell of Interior Enhancing and her creative team have selected soft blues and grays with crisp white tones in tiles, countertops and paint colors that contrast with the textured warm grays in cabinets and flooring. The combination of transitional furnishings in natural fabrics and tones with splashes of greens and soft tangerine colors creates a sophisticated and streamlined environment that appeals to every lifestyle! The coastal inspired color palette adds a touch of simplicity and freshness to the decor. From the open spaces on the main level to the cozy guest suite and children's areas on the upper level the Ramsgate offers plenty of private spaces for each family member to enjoy! Coming home has never felt so good.
