The charming village of Chester lies just steps away from the historic Thomas Dunk homestead circa 1672. Meticulously deconstructed by a devoted antiquarian in 1975, this classic Colonial post and beam was insulated, re-sheathed and rebuilt from the original timbers and flooring. Nearly nine foot ceilings, unusual for this era, span the first floor. The 1980's addition of a two car garage includes a charming guest master suite with a separate entrance and balcony. New shake shingle roofing, copper gutters and downspouts grace the exterior of the first home in Chester. The remarkable condition of this well maintained 18th century home bodes well for the next 300 years. Currently home to a colorful local artisan and former chef, the fire-placed kitchen includes professional appliances and is fitted with custom shelving, granite counters, multiple pot racks and book cases in a unique and efficient layout. Family room adjoins. Zoned both residential and commercial a period style 1980's improvement includes a master suite with separate entry suitable for a professional office, rental apartment or for guests, in-laws, visitors, family and friends.Outside, the property is bordered by a gently flowing stream. A charming, private and peaceful rear patio is surrounded by perennial gardens, fruit and dogwood trees. As you walk a block to the village and experience the regions favorite eateries and shops, you may well wonder why it took so long to discover the charm of Chester.
