Property Description

Awe-Inspiring Historic Gentleman's Farm Every inch of this 8400 SF historic, 1736-circa stone estate has been recently upgraded or restored by skilled craftsmen, while its 28+ acres is surrounded by hundreds of acres of protected conservation farmland. This stunning property truly has it all, from a sprawling manor with unique character touches, including deep set windows, solid wood doors, original hardware, and pegged random width flooring to a separate cottage, carriage and bank barns, riding arena, converted springhouse, pond, and so much more. Up the driveway to the covered front entry with honeycomb clay tile flooring and decorative transom and past the gorgeous facade with slate roofing, copper gutters, and stone wall terrace is the impressive foyer with curved walls, raised framed wood sides, and bench seat. Relax in the great room, elevated by two branch chandeliers with gold leaf ornate ceiling, decorative arched transom window, picture frame wainscot, fluted, column-lined marble fireplace, and parquet style hardwood flooring. Or opt for the living room with richly decorated, thick crown molding and branch chandelier with shades, and secondary staircase. French doors from the great room lead you to the bright sunroom with beamed ceiling, stone flooring with diamond border, curved windows, speaker system, and access to the porch. The awesome study has a wall lined with display shelves, a marble surround fireplace and hearth, built-in corner china cabinet, wet bar with stainless steel countertop, shelving, and GE mini cooler, and a deep closet. The fantastic kitchen has been completely restored with newer multicolored, tile flooring, restored Monell cabinetry, upgraded walk-in pantry, new garbage disposal, double stainless steel sink, GE side-by-side refrigerator with indoor water and ice, and premium Bosch stainless steel appliances including a dishwasher and microwave oven, 4-range cooktop, and self-cleaning oven. A secondary service kitchen offers double sinks, glass front cabinets, and 2 walk-in closets with matching tile flooring. The elegant dining room boasts a marble fireplace with tile hearth flanked by built-in curved china cabinets, a chandelier with shades, crown molding, wainscoting, curved window area with fluted columns, and backyard access. The second level includes an incredible Master Suite with private balcony, long bench seat with shelving, sitting room with wainscoting and walk-in closet, and private bathroom with ornate tiles and tub/shower, as well as in-law quarters/bedroom featuring a dressing room with built-in vanity, plus 3 additional bedrooms (one with an ensuite) and a full bathroom. The third floor has a library with shelf-lined walls, fireplace with fluted columns, and a walk-in closet, while the restored lower level has masonry walls and ceilings and a newer laundry room. Also on the property is a summer kitchen that has been transformed into an awesome, 1 BR, 1 BA cottage with restored features and a carriage barn featuring a 2-level home office with 2 rooms and powder room, 2 bedrooms, tile kitchen with newer cabinetry, full bathroom, and bonus room, plus a 6-car garage on lower level. The bank barn features 12,000 SF of heated, finished gallery space, a 9-stall horse barn completely restored with equipment room, tack room, feed room, and heated wash bay, a shavings shed, hay shed, equipment building, and powder room, as well as new roll-up barn doors, storage building for lawn equipment, and 3-bedroom groom's quarters, plus newer exterior fenestration, lighting, paddock, and four adjacent turnout fields with fresh fencing. An impressive indoor riding arena/multi purpose building provides 11,250 SF of lighted riding arena with composite surface fencing, while a stream with walking/horse bridge and a small pond enhance your outdoor living experience in every season!
