About This Old House

8936 W. Cedarville Road–where history meets modern-day living. This picturesque 5-acre country estate has all the qualities you want in a home and beyond!

As you enter this landmark property up the drive, you’ll pass two stone pillars and wrought iron gates and enter the lush grounds where the 2-story colonial, stone home says, welcome. The 3-bedroom home has a master suite with an over-sized tub with jets and a separate walk-in tile shower as well as his and hers sinks and walk-in closets. Just out the door of the master bedroom is one of the two historic porches perfect for enjoying the immaculate grounds. The upper level boasts two spacious bedrooms, one with a loft. Both share a full bath. The front entrance of the home leads to a formal dining area with an exposed stone wall and a gas-log fireplace and built-in cabinetry and cathedral ceilings. Just beyond the stone wall is the 25’ X 17’ great room which has refinished hardwood floors, an extra-large bay window with lighting, and a breakfast bar that transitions into a custom-designed and -built kitchen. This gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances is bound to please those with the most discriminating tastes. The main-floor laundry room has new appliances, houses a full bath as well as cabinetry and closets. The mud room addition has vaulted ceilings, pine walls and large Andersen windows and French doors leading to a paver-brick patio. The house includes a Sonos sound system, is protected by security system and electricity is backed by a Generac premier generator system

The barn is more than just a barn. While it is perfect on the outside, the inside is jaw-dropping. This 3-story barn has heat & A/C and is home to an office, weight room complete with powder room, tool shop and dry storage. The 1800+ square foot lower level has a custom-built bar with wet bar French doors, dry wall and natural stone walls–nothing amiss for easy entertaining. The two finished floors of the barn offer approximately 3000 more square feet of living space as well as a top floor with lots of shelves for all your storage needs.

In addition to the home and barn, there is parking for up to 5 vehicles. A 3-stall garage has room for vehicles, toys or could even be used as a workshop and a 2-stall garage leads to the house via a brick walk-way. The grounds have a multitude of beautiful perennial gardens; a perimeter fence which will keep in pets and children who are bound to enjoy the hundreds of mature trees that provide a wind-guard for the home; and a row of impressive-sized lilacs and trees arranged along the roadside provide privacy.

This is a property that not only looks spectacular, its features truly set is apart.
