Majestic views, privacy and classic charm. This country estate features a 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath main house, a guest cottage, a hunting-lodge-style carriage house, horse facilities and a beautiful late-18th century barn, all on just under 5 acres. Seated atop one of the highest hills in scenic Pilesgrove and setback more than 1500 feet from the road, your view looks out over hundreds of acres of protected farmland. You will enjoy country living at its finest at this private paradise. The 5 bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home was built c. 1825, and has been well maintained and modernized while keeping much of the 19th century charm intact. The wide plank flooring, crown molding and interior trim, antique door-hardware, 5 fireplaces with warming cupboards, and the built-in bookshelves all tell the tale of this home's history. The first floor features a spacious kitchen and dining room, enormous 17'x32' living room, a half bath and a heated three season room. The three season room opens onto a 1200 sq. ft. deck that was resurfaced in 2014. On the second floor a large landing provides access to two large 15'x17' bedrooms, a full bath and the master suite. The master suite includes a 17'x17' bedroom, full private bath, fireplace, 5 closets including a generous walk-in closet with access to a hidden cedar closet, a 10'x12' sitting room that can be used as an extra bedroom, and a private stair to the first floor. The third floor provides a full in-law suite with a bedroom, living room, bath and a wet-bar. The 2 bedroom, 1 bath cottage can be used as an in-law residence, guest house, or could make a wonderful studio for the budding artist! The cottage includes a full kitchen, laundry and living room. The original carriage house has been converted into a 2 car garage and contains a hidden gem: a large game room reminiscent of a mountain hunting lodge. With hand-hewn beams, wide oak boards, a wood-burning stove and A/C , this game room is a year-round gathering place for family and friends. For the family horse, a 1 acre pasture is wrapped in beautiful white PVC fencing with a 10'x10' run-in shed that includes lights and a heated automatic waterer, providing fresh maintenance-free water year-round. Enjoy a 900 sq. ft. playground. The playground was designed for safety and features a bed of rubber mulch and a nautical rope enclosure. The large timber frame barn offers an abundance of useful storage and the potential for a large workshop.
