Property Description

Once known as Pastures Farm, this 7500 sq foot stone manor home has been exquisitely restored, only 5 minutes from town and the train. The dutch door opens to a double height circular foyer, and the warmth and charm invites you in all directions; the formal living room, wood paneled library or the formal dining room. The flow of the home provides seamless indoor/outdoor living with multiple french doors off the formal spaces leading to the back patio. The bucolic 5.5 acres has been host to multiple weddings, parties and charity fundraisers, not to mention the oversized in-ground pool built in 1956 and a synthetic turf tennis court balances active living. Light pours in through the sun-room, sitting room, and the newly expanded windows in the vaulted ceiling family room with exposed beams. Don't miss the cast iron apron sink in the pantry, or the eat in kitchen. Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, all en-suite and a cathedral ceiling in the master suite highlighting the exposed beams and a stone fireplace is a perfect blend of intimate and imposing. The master also has a loft sitting/office area. Additional spaces include a bonus room and en-suite bathroom over the garage attached by a car port. There is also an adorable detached coach house with a sitting room, eat-in kitchen, 2 beds and a full bath above the three car garage which can be rented or income producing.
