Realtors call it the wow factor that extra-special something that makes visitors say, well, Wow! 

In this elegant, eclectic brick luxury house, the family room evokes such a response. Rising two feet high, it features a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace framed by multipaned windows. It is also open to the adjoining breakfast nook, where French doors lead to the two-level deck with steps leading down to the fenced rear yard.

Also in the entrance hall, the stairway leads to the upstairs gallery, which provides another memorable view of the family room.

Wow-worthy features continue through the rest of the house. On the second story, pillars divide the master bedroom from the sitting area. The master bath boasts a step-up oval tub, a separate shower and dual sinks. Two additional bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bath with dual sinks between them. The front bedroom has its own bath. 

The elegant living and dining rooms stand on either side of the entrance hall. Behind the dining room, the kitchen features granite counters. The two-car garage is connected to the kitchen via the mudroom and laundry area.

An additional bedroom suite appears on the carpeted lower floor. This level also provides a fitness center with a mirrored wall, a recreation area with a carved wooden wet bar and a multipaned glass door leading outside.
