The current owners have done extensive work to the home and property over the past 17 years, adding new roofs, furnace, septic system, standby generator, updating wiring and plumbing, replacing many windows, creating a double height living room and master bedroom, designing and adding new landscaping and hardscaping, and building full equine infrastructure. The home has 4 bedrooms, 3 full and two half baths, with two bedrooms on each floor allowing for privacy. There is an English country style kitchen, antique millwork, a wonderful studio and a sunroom converted to a chapel. The interior of the house is steeped in history and charm but with modern conveniences to ensure comfort. Additionally, the owners installed a 16' x 40' in ground pool with hardscape, pool cabana, and privacy fencing that overlooks the fields below.
