A quite unique opportunity within the village limits...located at the end of a private lane on the north side of town overlooking Eel Pond. Just a short stroll to the pond for small boat moorings or walk to excellent swimming at Fuller Street Beach via a short cut across Ox Pond Meadow. An oversized lot, nearly one acre, in an area where the character and values are protected in perpetuity by nearly 30 acres of conservation land. The house was originally constructed in the early 1900's and is a stately 2.5 story structure with immense integrity. The current owners have been excellent stewards of the property and have maintained it in a superb manner, retaining the historical details while upgrading systems and other mechanics. In addition to the main dwelling, there is a small and very quaint guest cottage. The property is of more than sufficient size to accommodate a separate guest house, pool and pool house. The adjacent lot is also available but only to the purchaser of this property. In combination, the two lots would be nearly 1.5 acres creating an estate or even park-like setting just blocks from Main Street.
FIRST FLOOR DESCRIPTIONThe original entry of the house faces the water/north side of the property and is very inviting with a small sitting area, fireplace and the main staircase to the second floor. A very generous living room occupies the remainder of the north side of the house so views are fully enjoyed. A second fireplace is found in this room as are french doors leading to a covered porch. The dining room and kitchen are on the south side of the house with a myriad of complementary rooms - a marvelous bar nook, a grand pantry off the dining room, a super laundry/mudroom off the kitchen....and there are two more staircases - both center and back of house. Perhaps the best of all of the living areas is the enclosed porch facing the water and the covered porches wrapping all the way from the north to the south side of the house...all simple and inviting outdoor spaces! (Note: All fireplaces have "antique" inserts)
