Long paved driveway brings you to a picturesque house with huge mature trees in the front yard. Once a two-family home, circa 1857, it has retained its original detailing but has been enhanced by well-planned additions, renovations and upgrades. House is in excellent condition and work was done with the highest standards of design, materials and workmanship. Some features include exposed stone walls, bead board accents, bluestone walkways and new windows, plumbing and electric. Once small original kitchen was expanded in 2014 into a beautiful and functional eat-in kitchen with Amish built inset door cabinetry, large island with seating and prep sink, Quartz countertops. Working at the farm sink is a serene experience as you look out and see a large pond with dock and the restful, natural landscape. From either the front porch or the kitchen step into the spacious dining and living room with random width pumpkin pine flooring and deep sill windows. There is also a 2-room suite currently a den and office that could become a first-floor bedroom and bathroom.

This grand single family home has two incredible master size bedrooms on second floor, both with exposed stone walls and one with walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom.

There is much flexibility in how each floor can be configured, if you want to make any changes from the great floor plan that is currently in use. One configuration can accommodate in-law, nanny or caretaker on first floor. With a separate entry from porch, rooms now include a second kitchen, laundry room and living room/bedroom on main level. Enormous third floor was beautifully finished and has original horizontal beams and knotty pine ceiling, two fans and storage areas in knee wall. Space can be used for multiple purposes. Exterior of the house, once stucco, was removed to expose fieldstone and no maintenance Hardie Plank is on the additions.
