Experience total privacy and seclusion on this romantic 70-acre property with the rare combination of a renovated 18th century stone home at the end of a private road, nestled in its own little valley. Wind down the gravel path, past the pond and over the bridge that crosses the Praymakers Brook, and then gently up the hill to a series of stone walls and patios that surround the house. The historic heart of the home is the living/dining room with original wide plank pumpkin pine floors and beamed ceiling, Rumford fireplace and direct access to the front porch which spans the front of the house and looks toward the pond and brook. The rear section of the first floor, added around 1850, encompasses the state-of-the-art kitchen and a sitting room with a wood stove, beaded pine paneled walls and shiplap ceiling. Entry area with slate floors and exposed stone wall opens to a small side porch and kitchen opens to a patio from which the kitchen garden is a few steps away. The master bedroom, with vaulted ceiling dormers at both ends, catches both morning and afternoon sun, and features the same paneling and shiplap treatment as in the kitchen, as does the second floor bathroom, with exposed stone, bluestone floors with radiant heat, and a stone-clad walk-in shower. Two guestrooms, one also with vaulted ceilings, are equally sunny, comfortable and relaxing spaces. The magic continues out on the property, where there are so many beautiful spots to linger and special places to wander and get lost. Wide trails that wind through the woods are countless, yet there’s plenty of open space for adding a pool, tennis court or additional structures. Period barn is ripe for restoration and 30x70 former stable could be a spacious guesthouse, studio or creative space.
