A rambling stone house on 9 acres, steeped in history and pedigree, presents that elusive lifestyle that combines the simple joys of the country, the romance of a centuries-old estate, and the convenience of being 3 miles from a hub of culture and higher learning. A long, private driveway runs past a pond and ice house before culminating in a circle before the entrance of the residence, which, if local lore is correct, dates back to the 1600’s. It’s easy to believe once you get a glance at the stone floors, beamed ceilings and massive fireplaces. Later additions include a gracious living room that leads into a conservatory and the main suite with separate his/hers baths and a door to the patio and heated pool beyond. In total, there are 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. While some updates are needed to improve flow and functionality, the house has been very well maintained and many spaces are perfect as they are, such as the warm wood dining room, where holiday meals are like a picture print by Currier & Ives. Should you wish to share long weekends with friends and family, 2 conjoined lots make it possible to add a guest house. The foundation of an as-is garage could be the footprint for such a project. Give yourself extra time to explore all the nooks and notice all the inimitable details throughout this special property!
