Welcome to 517 Wake Forest Drive. This impeccably maintained home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac on one the prettiest lots in the highly sought after Academy Hills neighborhood. The drive up the picturesque street is sure to impress! The home backs to open space and the amazing sunset views from the expansive deck can not be beat - you can see for miles! The yard features extensive plantings and a sprinkler system to make maintaining the lawn easier. This lovely home features a soaring light filled entryway, beautiful wainscoting, a formal living room and dining room, and a turned staircase with access from the front and back of the home. Where this house really shines is at the rear of the home. A gorgeous kitchen, redone in 2018, features an island and a huge peninsula, a butlers pantry and shares an impressive two sided gas fireplace with the comfortable family room. This two story space is light filled yet cozy and is the perfect spot for relaxing! Tucked behind the kitchen is a very generously sized office space with beautiful views of the backyard for when you need to take a quick break from working from home. A powder room and the laundry room round out the main floor. The second floor features three guest bedrooms and a primary suite that is bigger than some apartments. It features a tray ceiling and a cozy sitting area, two walk in closets and a beautiful bath complete with soaking tub. There is a full basement, perfect for storage and work out space, or finish it for more living space, as well as an amazing three season sun room. So many possibilities - a she shed, man cave, cigar bar or reading nook - this room is a quiet tucked away retreat and the perfect spot to watch the wildlife. This home in the coveted Newark Charter School Five Mile Radius, is in pristine condition. Make your appointment today!
