If you love older houses with character, but haven't found anything because they all need renovation. Or, if you prefer a house that's move-in condition but so far everything you have seen is stripped of any charm, you need to take a close look at this beauty. Existing from the 1700s, this stone single was built solid enough to last all this time and still provide a firm foundation for the updating and renovations that have taken place only recently. Everything in this house has been replaced and improved upon, yet it still maintains its stateliness through such details as high ceilings, some original wide plank flooring, wide window sills, four fireplaces (one with original Mercer tiles) and plaster walls. It's difficult to know where to begin to describe the features of this unique house. Outside there is professional landscaping. Doors, windows, lighting fixtures, custom drapery - all are high quality. Kitchen and bathroom cabinet and fixtures combine form and function to give you all the conveniences and beauty that you are looking for. The kitchen boasts a Sub-Zero, integrated refrigerator, 5 burner gas stove, and a built-in Miele coffee bar. Plus, a large center island, granite counters, custom subway tile backsplash and light-colored cabinets with mullion doors that have beveled glass inserts. The master bedroom, which is large enough for two king-sized beds has a walk-in closet with custom shelving and a master bath with soft-close cabinets, granite double sinks, a soaking tub and a triple-size frameless shower with a rain shower head. A Jack and Jill bathroom also with granite and double sinks services two bedrooms, each with original wooden beam ceilings and double closets, and one with an original fireplace and mantel. A contemporary powder room is on the first floor, along with separate laundry room with utility tub and storage. A mudroom with cubbies for outerwear and backpacks is entered from a side door. Two-zone heat and air conditioning is powered by efficient natural gas, which also powers the tankless water. The lower level with exposed stone walls is dry and well lighted to provide you, family and friends with more room to gather and perhaps enjoy some refreshments of choice. Old and new blend perfectly within and without this property to fill you with pride for many years to come.
