Welcome to 11 Irene Avenue in the sought after Autumn Knoll neighborhood in Essex. This elegantly appointed townhome offers 1,836 square feet of living space. You are welcomed by a sixteen foot front porch – perfect for greeting neighbors and friends as they walk by in this tree lined community with sidewalks and community walking path.

As you enter the home, a spacious entranceway with 24″ ceramic tile greets you. This home is unique in that the owner’s son built a wood cubby near the garage for extra coat and gear storage. There are also additional five foot and four foot closets around the staircase. There is a direct entrance to the garage which is insulated and sheetrocked to keep it warmer in the winter. It has loft storage and an automatic door opener.

To the left, we have an eighteen foot eat-in kitchen with ceramic tile and four windows to let in plenty of natural lighting. The breakfast nook is so bright and cheerful and has views of the nice landscaping. The gas stove is a nice feature as there are not many townhomes in this area with natural gas heat and cooking. This home includes all appliances which include the gas stove, microwave, refrigerator and dishwasher as well as the upstairs washer and dryer. There are six recessed lights in the kitchen. There is also a convenient garbage disposal. The window over the sink is a nice feature.

The back half of the home is a real show stopper with it’s gleaming hardwood floors and many windows with views of the spacious backyard with conserved woods behind. The living room has a corner gas fireplace and sliding doors to the 12 x 8 deck. There is a natural gas outlet for a gas grill. The formal dining room has two large windows to enjoy the wooded view.

Rounding out the first floor is a large powder room with custom built-in hutch. This hutch is fine quality and beautifully made. It measures four feet wide and nine feet high.

There is a feeling of spaciousness as you step up to the second floor with the wide hallway and extra space. It is nice how the bedrooms are separated with the master in the front of the house and the other bedrooms in back for privacy. There is a five foot linen closet in the hallway.

The 16 x 12 master bedroom features upgraded pergo flooring, ceiling fan, and three large windows for plenty of natural lighting. The attached full bath is amply sized at eleven feet, has double vanity, jacuzzi jetted tub, exhaust fan and six foot linen closet. The walk-in closet is 7 x 5 and there is an additional 6 x 2 mirrored armoire which the sellers are willing to leave with the house. There is also an 11 x 5 attic storage cubby accessible near the master closet.

The second bedroom is currently set up as a den and is beautifully set on the back corner of the home with four windows – two on each side. The third bedroom has two closets which span ten total feet of space. All bedrooms and the living room have ceiling fans with overhead lighting.

There is a second full bath upstairs which includes a shower, pedestal sink, exhaust fan and medicine cabinet. The second floor laundry room is substantially sized and offers a full size washer and gas dryer, sink and extra storage.

This home is heated with natural gas and has both public water and public sewer – a real rarity in this area. This energy efficient home was built in 2005 and is in a duplex style building of just two units.

Autumn Knoll is a very well regarded neighborhood with it’s upscale feel. It is nicely landscaped and is surrounded by conserved land with a walking trail. Autumn Knoll has a country setting, yet is conveniently located within five minutes of shopping, restaurants, parks and movie theatre. Children are benefitted by the top rated Essex school system which consistently ranks as one of the best in the state. Autumn Knoll is pet friendly and the association allows for one dog and a possible second with association approval.
