Featured in Country Living magazine, Log End exudes timeless, flawless beauty! Rarely does the combination of history, setting and impeccable interior design by Bennett Weinstock come together to create a sophisticated iconic country home as special as Log End. Set on 5+ acres near the charming village of Carversville, this historical home placed along the Paunacussing Creek has had many admirers in its 250+-year history. A trellised courtyard leads to its picturesque setting abundant in daffodils, hydrangeas and magnificent Sycamore tree anchoring the backdrop. The original, heavy front door with period hardware opens to the early part of the home, a ~chinked~ log cabin, circa 1760. This dramatic room with vaulted ceiling, exposed stone walls and second-story library is anchored by a hearthstone fireplace. Beamed ceiling, original floors with a rich patina and old-world superior craftsmanship make this the perfect, almost private-club retreat. Serve a tray of cocktails, share conversation with old friends, and don~t forget to include a hound or two at your feet. Nearby, a stylish powder room with nickel sink and tartan wall covering is conveniently located. Four comfortable bedrooms, each with a unique personality, are on the upper floors. The ~Proven~al~ country kitchen features a Diva de Provence gas range with hand-glazed tile backsplash, Sub-Zero, Viking dishwasher, Carrera marble countertops, large farm sink and beautiful custom cabinetry, stenciled floors and a cozy nook surrounded by windows. Use this area for casual dining or indulge in your favorite read. The quaint dining room is a lovely space with stone front wood burning fireplace, wide plank floors, raised panels, beamed ceilings, deep set windows and a perfectly wall-papered hunt scene backdrop. A charming main floor powder room and laundry with easy access to all mechanicals completes this stunning interior. The second floor accesses a sitting room, with hidden, paneled wet bar, a checkered tiled fireplace, raised paneling and a close-by main bedroom suite with large bath with double sinks and walk-in shower. The third level features an additional bedroom with sweet fireplace and full bath with clawfoot tub. The fourth-story bedroom is large and bright and features yet another fireplace. The exterior is enhanced by an extensive bluestone terrace overlooking the Paunacussing Creek, a wishing well, wisteria-covered arbor and a multitude of perennial flowering gardens. Enjoy the built-in barbecue for outdoor entertaining. A two-car garage with additional offstreet parking and an unfinished barn/studio awaiting your creativity complete the property. A new whole-house generator recently was installed. A one-of-a-kind historical property, Log End is a perfect weekend or full-time residence for the sophisticated buyer seeking a country home.
