This historic 1750 farmhouse, expanded 4-fold by the current owners, offers 5 beds, 5.5 baths, a professional chef's kitchen, and a stunning sunroom that looks across the brook-fed pond and the treed, lawned 3.9 acre property. The main house is a balanced composition punctuated by a third floor balcony lookout with a play of symmetrical windows and architectural detail. The house's historic interior offers original wide-board floors, exposed original chestnut posts and beams, and central hearth. The primary suite and living spaces maximize sunny southern views of a very natural setting. Additional space abounds including a massive bonus room and third floor vaulted office and rec room. One enters the property across a 400 ft. stone drive, to approach both the set-back main house and an income-producing cottage (2B/1Ba) that could alternatively be used as an art studio, aupair/in-law residence, guesthouse, office, or gym. The cottage is a rare legal rental. Its income and associated tax benefits equate to a ~20% reduction of the asking price because the value attributable to the cottage returns the presumed 38% taxpaying owner a 51% pre-tax return on their 20% equity in the cottage.* Additional features include a 2-car garage, natural gas heating and cooking, tankless hot water, central a/c, and Pool Site. This is a true, grand country house and financial asset. Its bones are rock solid, its spirit authentic, its charm singular. (*Per seller)
