Realtor Anne Lusk, of Lusk and Associates Sotheby’s International Realty, is the listing agent for the property at 999 Chapel Forge Court.
Built by Stonebridge Builders, the home sits on more than three-quarters of an acre and features a stately all-brick exterior and an elegant circular driveway beneath a canopy of trees.

On the main floor, the home includes a large family room with cathedral ceiling, a wall of windows overlooking the wooded landscape, and one of three fireplaces. A second fireplace adds a cozy touch to the distinctive formal dining room.

The home offers additional entertaining space on the finished lower level, with a family room, kitchenette and game area.
Other highlights include a recently updated kitchen with granite countertops, tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances and a plethora of cabinets for storage space.
