What began as a modest 1750 stone farmhouse is now a rambling country manor with 19th and early 20th century additions. Sited on 48 acres of farmland and woods, the private property includes a heated guesthouse/artist studio with full bathroom, 6-stall horse barn, 60' pool, and caretaker’s cottage. The main house features large rooms, wide hallways, and much original architectural detail, including moldings, hardware, Dutch doors, wide board floors, and newly installed 20 pane over 20 pane wood framed windows. Of the seven fireplaces in the house, six are working, and there are three staircases connecting the first and second floors. The country kitchen is flanked by the breakfast room on one side and the dining room on the other; the family room is richly paneled and has built-in bookshelves and an office nook. Everyone’s favorite room is the living room, once a ballroom, with its 15’ beamed ceilings, garden alcove and the proportions to entertain on as large a scale as anyone could want. Five second floor bedrooms are more than comfortable, and the master suite, with office and original built-ins, is an oasis of calm. Currently used as a workout room, the enormous walk-up attic lends itself to a multitude of other uses. Walk out any of the doors, and grounds dotted with mature, old growth hardwoods will greet you. The most charming guesthouse is currently an art studio – bright and inspiring, with a second floor bedroom and full bath. Tucked behind the barn is the heated 60' pool, surrounded by lush growth, and on the edge of the farm, variously planted with hay crops and soybeans. There are trails through the woods and lots of private spots to hide out and enjoy the vastness of the open sky.
