Superb Shingle-Style Farmhouse with covered wraparound porch on over 7…
c.1890 colonial farmhouse on a whisper-quiet, scenic country road in one of the most desirable areas of Washington. The character-loaded 3-bedroom clapboard house is poised on a level property of nearly 2 acres with a gunite pool, pool house, two open porches, and a dining deck. Ringed with stone walls and steeped in privacy, this move-in-ready antique is close to town and within minutes to natural gems such as Lake Waramaug, Shepaug River, Steep Rock’s nature preserves and trails, and the area’s vibrant cultural scene.
A mere 90 minutes from NYC will feel a world away in the 2,300±-square-foot antique home that has a sophisticated feel with many lovely details throughout. These include exposed brick walls, gorgeous hardwood flooring, two fireplaces, hand-hewn ceiling beams, and the family room’s oversized portrait windows that pour natural southern light into the room. The spacious country kitchen has been tastefully updated with new appliances, stainless apron sink, and granite counters — and is afforded plenty of sunlight by windows on three sides. There’s a center island/breakfast bar, dining banquet, and access to a stone patio for dining al fresco. The large kitchen also features a prep area, abundant cabinetry, wood flooring and access to laundry room. The main level also features a study/media rm w/ wood burning fireplace and built-in daybed that can also serve as a spare bedroom; a first-floor reading rm w/ built-in floor-to-ceiling shelving, and full updated bathroom.
The second floor comprises an oversized master bed w/ a sitting area, two nicely scaled guest bedrooms, and full bath updated w/ glass stall shower, marble tiles & counters.
Other highlights include a bluestone patio, barn/shed, mature plantings, paved drive, & an open flat lawn perfect for outdoor activities. A truly rare & exciting opportunity to own a piece of Washington history and one of the original homes in the area.
