About this listing
This just-renovated small country estate dates from the 1700s, with original wide chestnut floors, and all the period detail preserved. Gathering spaces are large and gracious, with two living rooms, each with a fireplace, and a dining room looking out onto a backyard terrace, pool, stream, pond, and two red barns (one is early 1800s original). Altogether 12+ acres and across the street from the expansive Steep Rock nature preserve with excellent hiking and cross-country skiing. Two minutes to adorable, classic New England town center, with excellent restaurants, the outstanding Hickory Stick bookshop, coffee shop, and shopping. Also close to Lake Waramaug, 25 min from Mohawk Mountain for skiing in winter, and near many apple orchards and blueberry farms.
There are 5 bedrooms, 3 with queen beds (one on the ground floor), one with two twin beds, and one with one twin. Three full bathrooms, including three showers and one bath.
A recently updated heated gunite pool has a jacuzzi spa (open only in summer). Beautiful perennial gardens bloom throughout the spring and summer. There is an enormity of wildlife—birds chirping in the maple, hemlock, and apple trees, and frogs croaking in the pond—so that you feel truly removed from city life.
Please note: We are not set up for large events (e.g. weddings) at our home.
