Drive up a tree-lined, winding lane and enter your very own private retreat, secluded from the stresses of the outside world. Surrounded by 86+ tranquil acres (three separate parcels offer the flexibility to build an additional home) of rolling hills, fields and woods, this warm and comfortable historic home has been impeccably restored, updated and maintained by its current owners. Miles of walking, mountain biking & riding trails will appeal to any outdoors lover. The house overlooks a large, stocked pond, perfect for fishing and swimming as well as a beautiful saltwater pool and wonderful, rustic pool house with a built in grill for outdoor entertaining, adjacent to formal gardens that are filled with native plant species. A bountiful veggie garden w/ waist-high white oak raised beds is protected by a deer fence. An apple orchard of vintage and young trees bear abundant fruit. A walk through the woods takes you to a whimsical tree house which has hosted picnics, cocktail parties and book group meetings. Inside you'll find a completely renovated home with additions spanning four centuries. Walk into the charming living area to the updated kitchen/keeping room featuring a full sized Sub-Zero fridge & freezer, Meile dishwasher, Thermador double ovens, Rutt Cabinets and gas cook top, as well as a walk-in fireplace that the current owners burn all winter. The formal DR is part of the original home built in the 1730's and offers a large FP (converted to gas), original random-width floors, period moldings & millwork. A library sits adjacent to the DR and provides a quiet spot for reading w/ a built in daybed in front of the gas FP. The massive Great Room has original brick floors and a FP with a gas stove. The new staircase features a fantastic 2 story window overlooking the formal gardens. A large master suite with updated bath, private balcony and gas FP awaits on the 2nd floor. The home offers 3 additional bedrooms, including a large bedroom with private bath, office nook and sitting room on the 3rd floor. The current owners have updated all the mechanicals in the home, including electric, HVAC & geothermal. In case of a power outage, a backup generator powers the house, large 19th century stone bank barn and pool, as well as the beautifully restored spring house, which would make an ideal artist's studio, office or retreat. This truly is a special home set on a magnificent piece of property! Be sure to see the video of this home.
