Welcome to the Lloyd-Balderston Farmhouse. This beautiful fieldstone home was built by the Lloyd family in 1740. The house was enlarged at three different times: in 1780, 1860 and 1910. The house is approximately 3000 square feet, it has four bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. The farmhouse was beautifully restored in 1996. The original random width pumpkin pine floors have been preserved throughout the house. It boasts a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops and a dramatic walk-in fireplace and bee-hive oven that once provided the centerpiece of the 19th Century kitchen. In addition to the kitchen's walk-in fireplace, the house has two more fireplaces and a free-standing cast iron stove. All are gas operated. The living room fireplace features an exquisite Delft tile surround and the guest room fireplace features a floor to ceiling fieldstone wall flanked by built in bookshelves. The house features multi-zone radiant hot water heat, central air conditioning and double pane insulated windows throughout. The property features a fenced in pool garden featuring a 54 foot Anthony-Sylvan gunnite swimming pool with large patio and makes for a great place to entertain or just relax in complete privacy. Finally, the property features a long, private driveway and an 18th century carriage house with three floors and room to park up to five cars inside.
