From the wide plank, Chestnut floors, exposed beams, multiple original fireplaces and antique charm throughout, this house is the epitome of gracious grandeur. The landmark Keeler Homestead c.1744 offers three centuries of history, yet has been lovingly renovated and restored for a modern lifestyle. Each room functions with a specific purpose, all the while providing exceptional views through divided light, paned windows to the rolling grounds and gardens beyond.
A picturesque escape from daily life awaits as you venture out to the stunning 2.8 acres of landscaped beauty. From the stone wall accents, private central courtyard, masterpiece gardens and mature trees, the setting is truly second-to-none. A gunite pool is flanked by a pool house with a kitchen and bath for hours of summer fun, while a three-stall barn provides a throwback to a more gentile time. The private drive connects to sought-after Keelers Ridge, offering a unique opportunity to walk the secluded cul de sac.
The formal living or music room offers access to the open concept family room and glass conservatory currently styled as a formal dining room. Providing coziness through a large wood burning fireplace, and offering access to an expansive central courtyard patio, this wing of the home screams out for hours of indoor/outdoor entertaining.
Adjoining a butler’s pantry and den, the kitchen offers butcher block counters, a large pantry, professional appliances and a fabulous dining area – known as a “keeping room – highlighted by antique beams and a fireplace. Access to the breezeway, mudroom and laundry are also perfectly sited in order to access the 5-car carriage house.
The main floor study includes multiple built-ins, large bright windows, and a half bath. A secondary den on the main floor joins an upper level home office that can be accessed from either the hall or the primary suite, while multiple bedrooms provide a flexible floorplan for home schooling, or additional office space.
Located off the central landing, a serene master suite includes a large main bedroom, three walk in closets, a covered “sleeping porch” and two luxurious baths: one with a shower, vanity, commode and bidet; the second with a deep jetted soaking tub, vanity, and commode.
The additional bedrooms are either en-suite or have access to a full hall bath. There is even an upper level gym and a third floor playroom.
The fabulous, two-bedroom apartment is located in the five-car Carriage house and includes a spacious open floor plan. The vaulted ceilings and exposed beams allow for an airy feeling in the main living, kitchen and dining spaces. There is also a full bath, multiple closets providing plenty of space in the bedrooms, and French doors walking out to a private patio with beautiful views of the grounds.
