Charm abounds in this center-chimney colonial on ten acres Saratoga County, NY. Originally constructed circa 1800 in Clifton Park, in approximately 1986 the house was carefully disassembled, parts and pieces numbered, and moved to its current location so it could be rebuilt nestled into an apple orchard in Burnt Hills, but with a modern foundation, insulation and mechanicals.
Peaceful and serene describe the grounds of this property. Meandering through the driveway past the idyllic three stall red horse barn and fenced paddock as you approach the pasture, apple trees, pear trees and blueberry bushes, one can’t help but look forward to what’s next.
Maintaining the best in authenticity by way of the wide board floors that grace the home’s entirety, exposed beams, moldings, mantle pieces, wood wall treatments, five Rumford fireplaces, original doors and hand forged hardware, the house has been thoughtfully updated with modern amenities, such as zoned central air conditioning, solar panels, a whole house generator, a first floor laundry room with soapstone sink, large home office with gas fireplace, its own half bath and entrance from the exterior, high speed cable internet, a wine cellar and tasting room with wood planked walls, a home gym – heated and cooled, a heated garage with water, raised bed gardens with water, supplemental well, on demand hot water system, water filtration and softener systems and a full walk up attic with cedar closet.
With three+ bedrooms, two full baths and two half baths, there’s quite a bit of versatility with the layout. The home office could easily be used as a first floor bedroom as it is adjacent to a full bath. Two more rooms that could be formal living and dining rooms, or perhaps a library or TV room, offer their own wood burning fireplaces. On the second floor there’s a spa bath with radiant heat flooring, three generously sized bedrooms and another flex space that could be used as a nursery, yoga room, craft room or playroom.
From the kitchen, French doors flow out to the flagstone patio where you can enjoy a cup of coffee, cut herbs from the herb garden for cocktails and to prepare dinner, tend to the flowers or vegetables in the raised bed gardens, or enjoy a soak in the hot tub at sunrise or sunset while overlooking the apple orchard and the pasture.
