This charming six bedroom home was built only 57 years ago, but at first glance of its enchanting exterior and grounds, and later within its spirited walls, one might think it was created at a time when housing designs and features were given a prolific respect to the comfort of its residents — and even more consideration to creative architecture.
The home's artistic country lines, lush three and a half acre landscape (with a pond) and wrap-around farmer's porch are all warm invitations into this enchanting property. Its interior offers an outstanding floor plan ideal for larger families and entertaining.
The spacious fireplaced living room with its period mantel is a welcoming space drenched in rich, gold tones and holiday gatherings can easily be imagined in the elongated dining area.
The open kitchen combines the most frequented areas in the house: the family room and kitchen. This relaxed, hospitable space will draw the family morning, noon and night with its cozy dining area and extended breakfast bar, a sitting area with a fireplace and an egress that leads to the rear deck that overlooks the landscaped grounds. This floor also supplies a home office, a library with two walls of floor-to-ceiling built-ins and more opportunities to enjoy the picturesque landscape with a sunroom and glass house.
For sleeping accommodations, this home boasts six generously-sized bedrooms and five full and one half baths. It also offers an ideal in-law or au-pair suite with a separate private entrance and kitchen. A media and game room in the finished basement offer indoor recreational opportunities that the entire family will enjoy.
The detached garage, built with the same imaginative constructive design, can comfortably accommodate six vehicles and also provides usable loft space above.
The flourishing outdoor setting and cozy, comfortable and secure surroundings inside are equally significant features in evaluating this property. Great consideration and care has gone into this lovely Victorian from its original construction to its maintenance, renovations and enhancements it has received through the years. That appreciation and admiration of its enhanced value is what has preserved its beauty for over half a century.
