You wont find a more charming home anywhere. This historic center-chimney Colonial is solidly constructed and has been very well maintained. Nine large rooms, seven working fireplaces, gleaming wide pine floorboards, tasteful stenciling, many built-in cabinets, gunstock corner beams, and historic glass. The great room which is pegged post-and-beam constructed, has a hearth, a large dining area, very tall ceilings, and large glass sliders overlooking a private, well-landscaped backyard with a row of crab apple trees, a wisteria covered pergola/patio, a magnificent magnolia tree, and established perennial beds. Just off the great room are a spacious updated bathroom, a laundry room and a sizable, well finished mud room and extra attic storage. Adjacent to the great room is a large kitchen and wonderful walk in pantry. The kitchen has a fireplace and brick-arched cooking enclave. Beyond the kitchen is a formal dining room, a spacious formal parlor room and a library/office- all with fireplaces. Upstairs there are a large master bedroom with fireplace, twin side-by-side bedrooms, a fourth bedroom with fireplace, two bathrooms, and a wonderful kids/grandkids attic play room with stairs to the kitchen. Outside the home are well established perennial flower gardens and flowering shrubs as well as raised veggie beds. No worries about development encroachment since you own the surrounding land. Swimming, downhill skiing, hiking trails are all nearby. See the walk-through video!
