Quaint Antique Beautifully Updated For Modern Living
In a fabulous commute location to NYC and down county, this c.1730 antique Cape is riddled with charm and character, while meeting the needs of today’s busy lifestyle. Set on a wonderfully level 1.47 acres, it offers a peaceful retreat after a busy day.
The living room draws you in with a spectacular, original, stone wood burning fireplace. Truly incredible, it sets the stage for the exposed hand-hewn beams, hardwood floors and original doors sprinkled throughout the rest of the home. The adjoining dining room includes a fireplace and built-in corner cabinet and opens to the kitchen with yet another fireplace and stainless steel appliances. A half bath is also found here.
Moving into the family room addition, there is a vaulted ceiling with a wall of divided light windows providing a magnificent view of the pond and mature trees surrounding the property. There is also an additional fireplace found here to warm up the adjoining main floor master suite. The master bedroom is joined by a dressing room with multiple wardrobes and an updated full bath complete with a glass shower, deep jetted soaking tub, two separate vanities, make-up table and a commode closet. Upstairs, there are two large bedrooms with ample closets sharing a full bath.
The grounds also include a two-car garage with an attached workshop/shed and a detached barn offering additional, ground level parking and a perfect, finished office or rec room with a vaulted ceiling, heat and electricity. Watching the leaves fall on an autumn day or the springtime birds forage among the trees is a magical experience. There is even an old well to add to the whimsy of the yard! And there is no need to worry about power outages with a stand-by generator and large propane tank on site.
Close to Route 35 for an excellent commute into NYC, and just minutes to the center of our vibrant community with excellent schools and myriad cultural activities, this residence offers a very special place to call home.
