One of a kind historic farmhouse with incredible views! This impeccably restored, 3600+ square foot, four bedroom, two and a half bath federal farmhouse sits on its own hill overlooking Montour Ridge, providing complete privacy and bucolic views out every window. With roots dating to 1812, the main brick structure retains its original wide-plank pine flooring, many original moldings, original plasterwork detail and three fireplaces (two of which have been converted to convenient gas use).
The kitchen and family room area have been thoughtfully remodeled to allow for an open floorplan, perfect for entertaining and everyday use, while retaining original elements of exposed brick, exposed beams and a beautiful walk-in fireplace. The dining and living rooms are large, more formal and retain their federal style dimensions, moldings and fireplaces. Two open air porches, a separate large enclosed porch and a patio overlooking the meticulously landscaped grounds afford plenty of indoor-outdoor living throughout the year.
A large, beautiful foyer leads upstairs to three comfortable bedrooms and a full bathroom, all with spectacular views of the fields and mountain ridge. The fourth bedroom is part of the master suite including an impressive vaulted ceiling, original exposed bricks and beams, an ensuite master bath with jacuzzi tub, a private enclosed three-season porch with balcony overlooking the back yard and a separate staircase to the first floor.
In addition to the main house, the recently restored summer kitchen (with an additional, original wood burning fireplace) provides a unique space full of historic charm and modern convenience that can be used as additional living space, for entertaining or as a separate workspace or studio. The new three car garage (with its new driveway) provides easy, covered access to the house and plenty of storage, including an enormous, full-sized second floor that could be converted into additional work or living space.
The grounds have been carefully landscaped with mature, low-maintenance flowering shrubs and trees that anchor the house, enhance the outdoor space and provide year-round color. Throughout the home, the electric system, communications system, plumbing and roof have all been updated and central air has been added as well.
