Details

2017 addition (with radiant heat floors) includes a sunroom with walk-outs to lush, exquisitely-maintained gardens, 3 car drive-through garage. The most unique feature.....the ``Bird's Nest`` tower which would make an enjoyable office or meditation room with its 360 degree view of the valley. The entire home is clad in color-saturated fiber cement board and will never need painting (New in 2015). Triple-pane windows added in 2015, Architectural roof was completed in 2020. History hasn't been forgotten though! The elm wood used to trim the doors, windows, and front stairway was harvested on the property. The wide plank floors in the entry and upstairs hallway were all original pine from the farm.

On the main floor, the gracious living and formal dining room have southern exposure allowing for a wealth of warm natural light. A handsome bonus room could easily be used as a bedroom, office, or music room. There is an additional home office room and updated bath on the main floor as well.

Up the classic carved stairway on the second floor you'll find a landing with built-in shelves. If you have avid readers in the family, this is the perfect place to store books and there's plenty of room for a comfy chair to enjoy it in. The luxurious main bedroom was recently remodeled and now includes a French door walk-out to 2nd story patio. 3 more bedrooms, one bath, and laundry are also on that level. The entire home stays toasty in winter with a Buderus furnace, and cool in summer with central air.
The grounds have been consistently and meticulously groomed and feature perennial flower beds, fruit trees, mature shade trees, patio space, and a gorgeous rolling lawn.
Included in the sale is the quintessential Red Barn (ca 1865) with horse stalls, tack room and equipment storage with a fenced paddock behind. For your four-legged indoor pets, there's a second fenced area (new in 2018) accessible from the garage.

This property is being sold as a proposed subdivision of a larger parcel and will yield approximately 3.9 acres. Owners are flexible and willing to include up to 98 more acres if desired at additional cost.
