It's a rare find, an impeccably maintained antique home on over six idyllic acres of gardens with a caretaker's abode/ guest house reminiscent of a "Norman" cottage. These houses would seem right at home on a French country hillside. Sunshine warms vegetables and flowers growing in abundance. A back drop of groomed natural woods and burbling stream create the ideal frame for this special home.
The wrap-around porch provides wonderful outdoor space for entertaining multitudes of family and friends. The original clapboard and shingles have been carefully painted a cranberry red set off by the buttery tone of the trim.
The interior of this home has been lovingly preserved on all three living levels. Rooms are graciously proportioned. The bay window in the living room provides the perfect nest for a baby grand piano. The burl chestnut floors are exquisite, having been covered by carpeting for many, many years. The kitchen boasts a real Garland range (a Viking is in the guest cottage.) Abutting the kitchen is large and attractive service area with amazing amounts of storage. Over the years enormous amounts of food preparation took place here for hordes of hungry and appreciative guests!
Large windows, beautiful detailing, glowing floors; this has been the country home to this family for 45 years. It could be yours.
