Character, dovetailed into a bucolic environment of 8 acres of mature woods, a spring-fed pond, and the captivating Watson Creek in the Spring Valley Historic District provide a picture-perfect setting for this very special property. The transformation of a former 18th-century fieldstone grist mill, the main residence, and a separate 19th-century, plaster-over-stone farmhouse featuring 2 units, draws you to linger & muse its simple beauty. The mill residence offers period features, a nod to its utilitarian past, yet it can work with a contemporary or traditional aesthetic. Open, airy, expansive gallery-like rooms, thoughtfully placed windows, exposed beams and extensive use of oak, pine & tile floors offer the perfect palette for art and sculpture. The core of the mill home is an impressive central staircase. The great room, flooded by light and sporting its huge, hand-cut summer beam, has a cathedral ceiling with exposed beams, a massive stone fireplace, random-width oak floors & walls of glass; it is the perfect place for large gatherings. Beyond is a sky-lit studio w/wide yellow pine floors. The kitchen has a spacious dining area with exposed stone wall & porcelain wood/coal stove. Relax in the adjacent sitting area with a large bay window with a lovely view of the pond. A large bay window & extensive use of other windows flood the 2nd level of this remarkable home w/natural light. Exposed beams & stone walls, flagstone & wide pine floors add to the ambience of these spaces. There are 2 pleasant bedrooms on this level. A centrally located ceramic bath with separate tub/shower area and a convenient laundry can be accessed from both bedrooms and the hall. The third level, with large windows, cathedral ceiling, exposed beams & stone walls, provides additional sleeping/flex space. At the ground level is the heart of the grist mill with massive oak post beams, a cog wheel and a still-used water trough and flagstone floors. There are 2 additional bedrooms, a full ceramic bath & an additional room that could be a family room with a large fieldstone fireplace or den/media room. An office, a separate mud/utility room convenient for gardening and mechanical room finishes this level. The 2-unit farmhouse has many of its original elements including the old summer kitchen. Age-old sycamore trees, a foot bridge to walking paths, mature landscaping and a location on the road less traveled complete this wonderful property.
