    PROS In a sleepy swirl of cul-de-sacs, this 1989 Colonial has pretty birch and Japanese maple trees out front. From the two-story entry foyer, the family room with fireplace is to the left; at right, the living room opens to the dining area. The kitchen has black granite counters and appliances, plus a breakfast bar. An adjoining heated sunroom offers sunset views, and a full bath is nearby. On the second floor, an office leads to the enormous master suite, which has a walk-in closet, full bath, and cathedral ceilings with wood beams. Two more bedrooms share another full bath. The basement holds a tiki-themed bar and sliders leading to the in-ground pool with new liner. CONS Property is under agreement.
