Beautiful Gaylordsville Antique
Step back in time into this 18th Century Colonial - with its inherent charm and character - and which has since been transformed into a beautiful, much-treasured 21st Century home. Thought to be only the second home ever built in Gaylordsville and the last house standing that was built by a Gaylord, the home has been lovingly updated and expanded by the owner who was born and raised here, and then raised a family of his own.
A beautiful open plan chef's kitchen and large adjoining pantry anchor the main level, which also includes a spacious family room with an original fireplace - Dutch oven and swing arm in place. The main level also offers a window-lined den and dining room, a living room and a main level bedroom with full bath. On the upper level is a vaulted master bedroom with en suite bath, 3 walk-in closets and a Juliet balcony. There are three further bedrooms - all with hardwood floors - and a partially-finished lower level. Interior details include chestnut and random width flooring, chestnut beams, and original hardware.
Situated on a perfectly level lot, the property includes a 2-car attached garage, a 2-car detached garage, a large backyard and an inviting in-ground heated swimming pool with adjacent cabana. Surrounded by historic homes on a quiet, handsome country road and walking distance to several preserved hiking trails over varied terrain. Just 90 minutes from Manhattan and 10 minutes each to Metro North trains and the towns of Kent, Sherman and New Milford.
