Fabulous Historic Home And Guest House

Simple, Yet Elegant

Flagstone paths, stone walls and beautiful gardens create myriad ways to enjoy this special property. Entering through the front door you are greeted by a large family room with a double-sided wood-burning fireplace, relaxing window seat, period detailing and French doors that walk out out to a private slate patio and vegetable garden. The adjoining original keeping room now serves as a sitting room and offers access to the partially finished lower level with laundry and a full bath. The dining room retains the feel of an antique farmhouse with wideboard flooring, a vaulted ceiling with wooden beams exposed red brick walls and a bay window. Continuing into the eat-in country kitchen, terra cotta tile, Thermador double ovens, a gas cooktop, and additional stainless steel appliances complement a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams and French doors walking out to a rear deck. Two large hall pantries also ensure there is plenty of storage. An updated full bath with tumbled marble tiles and wainscot detail, multiple coat and storage closets, and a master bedroom with a private screened porch complete the main floor.

Cozy And Comfortable

Moving upstairs, the two bedrooms feature wideboard flooring and interesting period detailing including exposed framing. A lovely and bright, updated full bath serves as an ensuite to one of the rooms, with the adjoining bedroom featuring a walk-in closet and built in bookcases. These two rooms currently serve as a bedroom and sitting/dressing room suite, but could be easily returned to two separate rooms via the addition of a door. The choice is yours!

Magnificent Setting

Avid gardeners, the current owners have created a magical place from which to enjoy the seasons year round. Perennial beds, spectacular mature trees, a vegetable garden, beautiful accent and specimen plants, stone walls and meandering paths create a bucolic setting that encourages you to take the time to smell the roses. With such a spectacular setting and too many improvements to list, this wonderful piece of history is ready for its new owner.

Adorable Guest House

The two-story guest cottage is a fabulous place to use as a studio, office or quarters for visiting friends and family. The main level great room features exposed beams and vaulted ceiling with a fabulous full bath, while the upstairs bedroom looks out over the serene gardens and woods beyond.
