Overview

At the end of a majestic drive lined with sycamores and dogwoods, this spectacular home is set against a backdrop of tiered stone walls, original spring and bath houses, woodlands, a pool and shimmering pond. Honored with a merit award for its historically sensitive renovation, rooms are filled with character and take in peaceful views of its sheltered 11+ acre setting. Elements of a rich history blend harmoniously with a milieu of upgrades and tasteful refurbishments. Sophisticated mill and tile work, reclaimed wide plank floors, bubble glass windows with deep sills and hand hewn beams merge with modern day comforts. The kitchen is state-of-the-art but tailored by design to capture the country flavor of the home with hand-painted murals and coordinating countertops. A beamed breakfast room provides telescoping doors to an expansive blue stone patio, as does the formal dining room. Four stories of finished space ensure plenty of room for guests and entertaining including five bedrooms, six bathrooms plus a half bathroom. If more room is needed, an absolutely charming guest cottage, completely redone, adds another bedroom and bathroom opposite the swimming pool. The master suite is at once lavish and cozy with a wall of built-in drawers and a Juliet balcony to welcome the morning sun. A study adjoins as does an exquisite bathroom with steam shower and vessel tub. Down the hall is a fully equipped home gym and sauna. Back stairs lead to the utility wing hiding a laundry room with copper-topped sink, a full bathroom, loads of storage, and direct access to a three-car garage with one heated bay. A second garage provides an additional bay plus a generator. A Moravian log addition dating back to 1860 added a billiard/lounge great room plus a bedroom and bathroom. With its own entrance, a professional could use this as a home office, adding yet another attractive feature to this outstanding must-see property.
