- Listing Description: The grand dame of the old farmhouse, this elegant colonial features 7 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 2 fireplaces, a climate-controlled 2-car garage, and much more. A flagstone walkway and an elegant portico invite you into a sprawling entrance hall leading to a large formal living room with fireplace and an elegant adjoining dining room. A fully remodeled kitchen with Thermador appliances, granite counter tops and a large custom bench seat with bay window overlooking a garden pond. As if this connected open kitchen couldn’t get any better, it’s wide open to a family room with a gorgeous stone fireplace. The floor includes 6 bedrooms, including a sumptuous owners’ suite with three sides of light, a renovated spa-style main bathroom, 3 closets (two walk-in closets). and enough space to create a separate seating area. The remaining 5 bedrooms are large and bright, with custom closet systems, and one is ready for a home office with distinguished built-in shelving. 2 other impeccably renovated bathrooms complete this floor. The spacious basement offers a seventh bedroom with a double exit window and a full bathroom – a perfect retreat for an au pair, guest or visiting in-laws. Built-in cabinets and desks make this space an optional second home office (homework space/craft room) and plenty of large shelving closets provide ample storage options. The current owner is a professional artist and has converted the garage into a studio, with insulation, air conditioning and heating, a sink, extensive lighting and a professionally installed interlocking plastic floor, specially designed for garages and able to withstand the weight of parked cars. The studio has been featured in several art magazines, and photos of it can be seen. Although it functions well as an artist’s studio, the garage doors and floor are fully functional. The space could be used in many ways: home gym, carpentry shop, music or photography studio, or, of course, as a traditional garage. The garden and grounds have been a labor of love and passion for the current owner. As a master gardener, she has created this garden little by little over the past twenty-two years. The only original plantings are tall maple and crabapple trees in the front yard, a single hydrangea and an impressive row of burning bushes in the back. When they lost a second maple tree in the side yard several years ago, it opened up a whole new opportunity for growing sun-loving perennials, roses, herbs and raised beds. The picket fence around the side yard has extensions that are invisible from the street, but keep deer out. They added a pond with a waterfall, home to goldfish and frogs, and a water source for myriad wild birds, visible from the kitchen. A round flagstone patio with fire pit and large screened porch are favorite places to relax and enjoy the garden. The custom built potting shed holds gardening supplies and allows seed starting for the vegetable patch. The owner’s whimsical approach is evident in objects placed among the plants, like colorful goblets hanging from tree branches and framed mirrors along the fence. The garden, including the lawn, is 100% organically farmed and Pollinator-Pathway listed This home is the real Grand Dame!!
