The living room hosts a cathedral ceiling, antique barn beams, and floor to ceiling window. Magnificent sunsets are enjoyed in the serene screened porch warmed by its massive stone fireplace. Unique spaces include a library landing off master, wine cellar, dance studio, hobby room, and gym. Owners are currently completely two bedrooms and bath... the guest suite will be ready for an au pair, in-laws, or visitors with its private entrance and kitchenette. Custom finishes include copper gutters, custom millwork throughout, and hand crafted cabinetry. The fully finished 2, 200 sq ft barn has its own private bath, balcony, heat, septic, and water. The front has an expanse of French doors w/a covered porch overlooking the field. The back houses its large garden shed and a three bay garage.
