There is no way to reduce this phenomenal 1780's Federal into the boxes of a computerized listing! Home of a renowned local architect, directly across from the skating pond the ambiance is true New England at its best inside and out-think Norman Rockwell! On 5.5 acres with its own pond and a barn/garage, the patina of this home will win your heart. The 'keeping room' (living room) with it's warm polished floors looks out over the private spacious rear yard with a stone patio, a classic barn, pretty plantings, pond with cattails, lovely lawn and woods.The first floor has a small 'birthing room' off the master bedroom with the adjoining bath, and a 'maid's room' which could be used as a computer/TV room as well as the laundry and 1 1/2 baths. Upstairs, using the 'front' staircase come upon a peaceful reading nook with views overlooking the skating pond, as well as two bedrooms and a full bath. Back on the first floor, the mudroom entry also leads to the addition which has a fabulous, large family room with a huge special fireplace and large sliders to the rear. On the upper level of this 'wing' which had been the studio of the architect it should be possible to make two more bedrooms and expand the half bath to a full bath. The house has good storage, has a new roof, and it's proximity to town is perfect for kids and adults! Lovingly cared for, the house has stunning original architectural details you'll not see anywhere else! A newer shake roof and new furnace. Sold as is.
