Whether you’re seeking a weekend getaway from the hustle and bustle of the city, a place to entertain in style, yearning for more of an outdoor balance in a natural setting, this home checks a lot boxes for a wide array of today’s buyers. Custom built reproduction 5BR/4.1BA Bank Colonial with authentic wide clapboard siding and wooden shutters set on 9.2 open and flat acres with 8' steel deer fencing surrounding the perimeter with an additional 9.7 acre adjoining wooded lot in the rear high ground. Enjoy breathtaking views of the park-like setting from the oversized deck featuring a spring fed pond, babbling Rockaway Brook, vegetable / flower garden, horse and small farm animal facilities featuring multiple fenced paddocks / pastures (with water), several outbuildings (with power) and direct access to Tewksbury Trail system. Truly a classic Gentleman’s Farm in every sense of the word complete with a Woodland Management Plan in place aimed at responsible conservation while helping to keep property taxes in check. One of the best features of the property is the fabulous two story hand-made post and beam bank barn boasting two 10’x12’ horse stalls, ample equipment storage, full bathroom with shower, hot and cold water and a 300 bale hay storage and feed room. Lower level can be converted into a garage as the possibilities are endless. Just off the barn is a completely refurbished / remodeled, heated L-shaped built-in pool surrounded by professional hardscaping / landscaping complete with underground irrigation. Other exterior highlights include classic white picket Walpole fencing at the driveway entrance gate as well as the semi-circle portion encompassing the colonial style gardens, lovely brick and stone walkways and patios leading up to the barrel covered front porch with tongue and grooved ceiling on one side and the oversized, maintenance free Trex deck just off the kitchen offering spectacular views of the entire property. Current owners have made many significant improvements in 2015/16 including a new high end gourmet kitchen featuring radiant heated tile floor for those cold winter mornings, built-in wine fridge, SS commercial grade exhaust fan over the Viking stove in center island capped with double thick Carrera Marble, and a full service walk-in Butler’s Pantry complete with 2nd fridge, dishwasher, farm sink, storage pantries and wall to wall custom 42” high cherry cabinets. The hardwood floors in the Great Room were refinished and stained in addition to most of the interior rooms on both floors being professionally painted. There was also a major investment of time and money expended on the property itself including the revitalization of the soil / grass in the pastures and yard, repairs to the pasture fencing as well as to the decorative Walpole custom cedar fencing around the house and driveway entrance, installation of the garden, and significant tree and brush removal all over the lower lot including the house. Also worth noting is the installation of an underground high speed cable from the street to the house for TV and Internet. Other interior highlights include genuine wide oak peg board floors throughout and 9’ ceilings on the first floor. Just off the Kitchen is a towering two story Great Room / Family Room wrapped in exposed shipwright ceiling and wall beams with fieldstone walls and plenty of windows lining the adjacent wall allowing for plenty of natural light all warmed by a Jotul wood burning stove. There is also a gorgeous raised floor Library / Den with similar woodwork and cast iron fireplace, an Exercise Room, a Study / Office and a large formal Living Room and Dining Room, each with antique masonry wood burning fireplaces and brick façade hearths. There is also a large foyer and full bath. The second level offers five bedrooms varying in size from 18’x20’ to 10’x12’, a sitting room, laundry room, three full baths, and access to a second deck which leads to a 12’x24’ screened in room all located in the rear of the house. The master suite features a spacious bedroom with lovely wood burning fireplace and sitting area with strategic second story views of the property. The lavish master bath has a cathedral ceiling, marble floors, double vanity sinks and oversized two person jetted whirlpool tub with walk in Roman style stall shower featuring block glass accent and heat lamp at entrance. Lastly, there is walk up access leading up to the third floor attic offering endless possibilities for conversion into additional finished living space. The lower level consists of a walkout potting room with it’s own dedicated heating zone located directly below the main deck off the kitchen complete with SS utility sink, terracotta tile floor with built-in floor drain, tongue and grove cherry wood ceiling, half stone wall and a bank of windows. Adjacent to this room is the mud room with it’s own exterior walkout access also offering terracotta tile flooring. Continuing into the interior of the lower level is the tack room, utility room, recreation room, powder room and several other unfinished rooms suitable for a workshop, storage room and / or wine cellar. Also worth noting are some of the major improvements / upgrades to the infrastructure made by the previous owners from 2008 through 2011. They include new roof, automatic standby 17KW Generac house generator, new boiler for multi zone hot water baseboard system, 75 gallon water heater, well pump, water softener / conditioner, replacement of upper deck with maintenance free Trex flooring, new pool mechanicals and heater, completely refurbished Potting Room in lower level and 2nd floor Bathroom renovation.
