Cape Cod, Contemporary
A unique offering in Greenville, this spacious contemporary home, with public water and sewer, was built by Irving & Charlotte Shapiro in 1966. Mr. Shapiro was the first lawyer to become CEO of DuPont. The home was purchased from the Shapiro's in 2007, at which point a whole house renovation commenced. This included the addition of a 2nd story and an extension to the back of the home, including an extension to the basement, a second 2-car garage, front and side covered porches, a deck off the back of the house, a 2nd driveway entrance and a gunite in-ground pool. All the electrical and plumbing systems were improved, including upgrading to 400amp service. The floor plan of the home is flexible and allows for easy entertaining or everyday living where everyone can find a place to call their own. The main floor hosts a huge chef's kitchen where everyone will inevitably gather. Enjoy celebrating special occasions in the dining room with a gas fireplace, relaxing in the family room with a wood burning fireplace, or play a game of pool in the Billiard's room with adjacent wet bar. Fabulous 1st floor owner's retreat with a large bedroom, two walk-in closets, sumptuous full bath that includes 2 separate vanities and 2 private toilets, steam shower, and access to the covered loggia with outdoor sauna and hot tub. There is a home office and bonus room that share a bath adjacent to the owner's suite. Main floor is also host to a private guest suite with sitting area and full ensuite bath. Upstairs you will find 4 generous sized bedrooms and 2 full baths. There are laundry rooms located on the 1st and 2nd floors. There is a finished lower level ready for fun with a game room, theatre room, family room, a1000 bottle wine cellar with tasting bar, a full bathroom, and a large storage area. The outdoor living area expands in the warmer months with more abundant living space for entertaining and relaxing on the deck, porches, and around the in-ground pool. The home is superbly modern with geothermal HVAC, Nest Wi-Fi thermostats, Tesla chargers in both garages, Luxor Wi-Fi controlled exterior lighting, LED lighting throughout the home, security system with video monitoring, hardwired smoke and heat detectors, central vacuum, water filtration system, built-in speakers for sound throughout main floor and back yard, and more.

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns.
