Community amenities abound

With an open floor plan with panoramic views of a tree-lined back yard plus all the amenities of a golf course community, this cedar-sided ranch has a main bedroom suite, open social areas and bonus space above the garage.

Listed for $419,000 by Bechtel Realtors, the home at 673 Yankee Trace Drive has about 2,400 square feet of living space, including the upstairs bonus room. Located within the Wedgestone Villas section of Yankee Trace community in Centerville, the home offers access to swimming pools, tennis courts, community rooms, walking trails and lawn care.

This cedar-sided home is tucked along the outer edge of the neighborhood with no rear neighbors. Corral fence accents the tree-lined back yard, which has island gardens and tailored landscaping. A concrete driveway leads to the two-car garage, and a concrete walkway curves around the garage to the formal entry.

The home’s formal areas are separated by inlay carpeting among the ceramic-tile walkways. Ceramic tile fills the foyer and wraps around the formal dining room area, down a hallway and into the kitchen and breakfast room.

The dining room has a tray ceiling with a chandelier and is separated from the foyer by flooring treatment, which is neutral carpeting.

Straight ahead is the great room, which has triple windows that look out over the private back yard. A wall of built-in bookcases and cabinetry surrounds a gas fireplace that has a fluted-wood mantel and ceramic-tile surround. Carpeting creates the designated space for the great room as the open floor plan flows from the great room into a breakfast room.

Triple windows fill the breakfast room with natural light, and a glass door with transom above opens out to the covered concrete patio. A two-level peninsula counter divides the kitchen from the breakfast room. The elevated counter has seating space for four while the lower counter offers workspace for the gourmet kitchen.

White cabinetry complements the light countertops. Some hanging cabinet doors have glass panels. There is a bottle rack and a pantry cabinet. Appliances include a range, microwave and dishwasher.

Down the hallway from the kitchen is a full bathroom and across the hallway is a bedroom. The bath has a tub/shower and single sink vanity.

Access to the laundry room is across the hallway from the kitchen. The laundry room has storage, access to the two-car garage and a staircase that leads to a finished bonus space above the garage. This space has a window, an angled ceiling and a closet allowing for a possible third bedroom.

Off the foyer is the entrance to an executive study. The study has wood-laminate flooring, a wall of built-in bookcases, a media nook, cabinets and

MIDDLETOWN — A driver involved in a two-car collision Monday night on Washington Street, which caused their vehicle to flip onto its roof, escaped without injury, according to a fire official.

The other driver was taken to Middlesex Hospital for minor injuries, Middletown Fire Deputy Chief Al Leary said. When authorities arrived, all those involved were out of their vehicles.

The crash took place at the corner of Washington Street/Route 66 and Pearl Street at about 8:35 p.m., according to Middletown police Lt. Heather Desmond. In a photo from the scene, the sedan is seen overturned on the sidewalk at the east side of Pearl Street.

Accidents frequently occur along that stretch of highway, Leary said.

Middletown Common Councilman Ed McKeon, who lives nearby, said he crosses that intersection daily. “When walking, it’s easy to see how dangerous traffic patterns are. So many cars roll right through stop signs, and many make a right on red without ever checking for pedestrians.”

Motorists, who he’s seen speed by there frequently, seem to be in a hurry to get to Main Street. “During the construction on the north end of Main Street, it’s gotten worse,” he said. “Crews have blocked crosswalks without notice.

“This accident last night is a reminder that, as traffic is encouraged to move more rapidly on Main and Washington, pedestrians will be more at risk of drivers who are anxious to get through Middletown as quickly as possible,” McKeon said.
