Gracious living & family rooms are flanked by a handsome open staircase and each present an exquisite wood-burning fireplace. Practical amenities include main level laundry, powder room, walk-in pantry and a separate side vestibule providing convenient mud room access.
The atmosphere is relaxed, with sun-kissed formal and casual living areas that encompasses several seating arrangements, and two sets of double gardens doors that give way to a delightful covered wrap around verandah. The upper bedroom level plays host to a private master wing and 4 additional generously sized guest bedrooms, two full baths & powder rooms.
The limestone exterior provides a handsome backdrop to a glorious stone courtyard, surrounded by lush perennial gardens. Summer-time entertaining is a breeze around the sparkling in-ground pool and savvy cabana with built-in beverage bar, lounge area, cathedral ceiling, all which are easily secured with a “Rollag” door. Wrought iron fencing around the pool yard allows the view to extend to the hillside and pasture.
A charming oversized 2 bay board & batten clad garage with a third bay for storage or workshop area is located near the residence. Another arresting landmark is the handsome barn which offers horse stalls, covered run in and hay storage and a huge upper loft. A large outbuilding is ideal for tractor and equipment storage. Rolling pasture, paddocks and an indoor riding arena are ideal for equestrian purposes. A fenced enclosure provides a series of raised garden beds for vegetables and herb gardens.
