Step back to a simpler time and leave all the stress of today’s hectic world behind you as you pull up to this peaceful historic estate. You’ll find the charm of yesteryear tastefully blended with all of the modern amenities you’d expect. The original section of the home was built in 1749 as a small one room cottage and loft. Two more additions took place prior to the last major addition which was built in 1879. Through the front door, you’ll enter the central foyer and see the grand staircase with beautiful hand carved railings and trim. On your left is the huge living room with a wood burning fireplace. To the right is the library with custom built-ins and pocket doors. From there, you can enter either the large formal dining room or the bright fully enclosed sun porch. Relax out there with your morning coffee or unwind after a long day’s work. The large eat in kitchen has plenty of cabinet space, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a center island. The kitchen also has a 2nd curved staircase that takes you upstairs. On the 2nd floor, there are 4 large bedrooms, 2 full baths, a laundry room, and a bonus room that can be used as an office. The 3rd floor has a smaller 5th bedroom and another small room currently used for storage. There is also access to the floored attic for even more storage. Over the mudroom behind the kitchen, there is a finished loft that could be a secluded 6th bedroom, another office, or a playroom. Get away from it all in the heated in-ground pool or enjoy watching the wildlife visit your 2 1/2 acre yard. You’ll feel like you’re out in your own private oasis when you’re really just minutes away from shopping, schools, and restaurants. This home has it all-10′ ceilings, beautiful hardwood floors, detailed woodworking throughout, central air, updated bathrooms & kitchen, and large windows to let in plenty of natural light. The home is wired for both Xfinity and FIOS and also has a generator hook up. The secluded tree lined lot offers plenty of privacy and is perfect for entertaining. There is plenty of parking including a detached 2 car garage with a new roof. This home has been lovingly cared for inside and out, and it clearly shows. This won’t last long, so be sure to include this house on your next tour!
