Quality and attention to detail are clear in every feature of this home. From the 5/8" drywall, extensive insulation, 9' ceilings (as well as cathedral ceilings), clapboard siding, 50-year architectural roof with copper flashing, Pella doors and windows, Maple and Ash wood floors, on-demand hot water, a grand foyer and entryway, Kohler bathroom fixtures, custom trim work, and considerable closet space, this house was custom-built to provide comfort, low maintenance, and a lasting setting that will provide you and generations to come, a place to create meaningful memories. Carefully-selected stones create a beautiful walkway to the front entrance. In the grand entryway and foyer, you will find an abundance of closet space, a half bathroom, a laundry area neatly tucked away behind closed doors, and the stairway to the full basement. With a 3-car garage located down there (as well as 10' ceilings should you want to finish the basement for more living spaces), parking and access right into the home is easy and convenient. The marvel of this home is its great room. The Pine tongue-and-groove 16' cathedral ceiling, breath-taking views out of every window, southern exposure to take advantage of solar energy, and the Tulikivi fireplace with floor-to-ceiling stone surround, create a natural and alluring gathering space. Directly from here, you can venture out onto the large deck which spans the entire width of the home. Rejuvenate yourself while you gaze out upon the mountain views and watch the friendly chickadees gather at the bird-feeders. Back inside, arched doorways add to the character of the home. The eat-in kitchen is also spacious with a center island providing generous workspace for the cook in the family.
The master bedroom, located on the main level, is a relaxing space with a charming trey ceiling detail. Wake up to those mountain views with direct access out to a patio (made from local bluestone), a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee and absorb the morning sunshine. On cooler mornings, stay warm and comfortable with the radiant heated floors. Two closets (one is cedar-lined) provide ample storage space and the room connects directly to the unique, well-designed double bathroom with a handsomely-tiled shower. Need to unwind? Take a soak in the large sunken tub while enjoying the private view of the flower bed just outside the window. The first floor also offers a den a quiet place to retreat to, as well as another bedroom. On the home's second floor, you will find a large landing leading to another full bathroom, an office, and two additional generous bedrooms one with cathedral ceiling. The home, conveniently located just minutes to the village of Stamford, is situated on a manageable 2.9+/- acres. The land has a very gentle slope and is mostly open with a historic stone wall border along the back. To enjoy the great outdoors, explore any of the hundreds of acres of DEP Watershed land close by, which are open to the public for hiking and hunting. Or venture up to the summit of Mt. Utsayantha (you can hike up or drive!), a village-owned park where you'll find incredible views, picnic tables and grills, trails, and even a restored fire tower to climb.
