Truly unique mini-estate spread over 1.35 acres on prestigious upper Strawtown Road. Separate from the main house is a 2-story accessory building (approx. 1,400 sq ft), suitable for home office or other uses. The main house, originally a farm house c. 1804 (though rumored to date back to the 1780s) has been expanded and is now a 4,126 sq ft home complete with 2-story custom art studio with walls of glass, living room with hand-hewn ceiling beams, master bedroom with cathedral ceilings and Juliet balcony, two “his & hers” luxury master bathrooms with steam showers and large whirlpool tub, in-ground heated pool and screened porch overlooking the inviting pool / gardens. His and hers dressing rooms could be additional bedrooms. The grounds are magnificent with various perennial plantings and trees such as forsythia and magnolia. This offering has all the charm and natural beauty you could hope for along with all the modern conveniences to make life easier and more enjoyable – feels like one of the grand Nantucket homes!
Owners were told when they bought it that the earliest parts of the house (now portions of the kitchen and old dining room) date to its farmhouse origins in the late 1780’s. The house went on The Clarkstown tax rolls in 1804. It was expanded to add the present living room and the bedrooms above it sometime in the second half of the 19th century. During the Civil War, Union soldiers were welcomed to the house for “R & R” (rest and rehabilitation).
