So many opportunities await the fortunate next owner of this vintage New Englander prominently sited atop a knoll surrounded by magnificent gardens, mature trees and extensive granite walls and outcroppings... abutting the Audubon's Kwaks Sanctuary! Expanded and extensively renovated by the current owners over the past 25 years, this historic home affords space and features for today's lifestyles. The main level features a flowing floorplan with welcoming foyer, a bay window over-looking the covered porch, spacious family room, dining room adjacent to large country kitchen, mudroom plus a 1/2 bath-laundry with direct access to the outdoors for easy cleanup after enjoying time in the barn or tending the beautiful gardens. The upper levels feature a gracious cathedral ceiling capacious master bedroom with ensuite spa bath, 3 additional bedrooms, hall bath and walk-up attic. The house offers rich, warm natural wood moldings and millwork, hw & pine flooring, original front door, vintage light fixtures (3), and Italian plaster walls (original rooms). An additional 3,000+/- sq.ft. is available in the 2-story barn with 1.5 story additions. The barn features 3-phase power and houses a commercial kitchen and large finished room with 3/4 bath. So many potential uses limited only by your imagination (and Town Zoning!). Master gardeners would be impressed by the spectacular gardens and landscaped grounds! Privately sited surrounded by conservation land. Minutes to vibrant downtown.
