As you enter through the majestic stone pillars and travel along the manicured stone driveway, your senses are immediately awakened. You are about to experience something special. This antique, circa 1800 gem is sited on 10 lush acres adorned with stone walls, extraordinary gardens, 100+ year old heirloom fencing, a spring fed pond and dense woods perfect for foraging, hiking and clearing your very own trails. Imagine relaxing on the dock, soaking in the sun, paddling around in a boat and taking in all that nature has to offer. For the past 31 years, the owners, master gardeners, have loved and nurtured this property and transformed it into an outdoor wonderland. The home offers several inviting points of entry; one more lovely than the next...the rocking chair front porch, the expansive bluestone side porch offering exquisite views of the amazing rose garden and the flagstone walkway and patio. Inside, you are treated to well preserved period details, original wideboard wood floors, large rooms, a cozy woodburning fireplace and a seamless, flowing floor plan perfect for entertaining. Host guests in the welcoming living room in front of a roaring fire, gather for a meal in the spacious formal dining room or retreat to the grand library complete with built-ins for all of your books and collectibles. What was once a screened porch was converted to additional, interior living space and now serves as an ideal primary bedroom. As you lay in bed, enjoy captivating views throughout all four seasons. Step out through the french doors onto a flagstone patio and enjoy your morning coffee. The kitchen, with butcher block counters, plenty of storage space and a convenient exit out to a small enclosed porch along with a full bath and a half bath complete the main level. The upstairs is served by both a front and a rear staircase. Discover four spacious bedrooms and a full bath with a sauna along with lots of closets and nooks and crannies for additional storage. As if all of this were not enough, the barn offers an unexpected surprise. Beneath the barn, there is an enclosed finished space with stone floors and hand hewn beams which offers exceptional views of the pond and expansive acreage. Don't miss the outdoor barbeque grill, the adorable garden shed and the goldfish pond with its very own water feature. Words cannot do this property justice. You really must visit, walk the grounds and tour this warm, comfortable home.
