The property is accented by fieldstone walls and abuts Roxbury Land Trust, offering privacy within walking distance to nature preserves and trails. Located a mere 90 miles from NYC you will feel a world away in this renovated antique home with its sophisticated feel and a sense of history as you note many lovely period details throughout. These include exposed hand-hewn beams, original hardwood flooring, four wood-burning fireplaces, and oversized 12-over-12 windows that allow natural light to bathe each room. The interior features a central fireplace surrounded by public rooms, including a formal dining room, library/sitting room, and formal living room. The country kitchen, complete with designer appliances and butler’s pantry, is located off the formal dining room in its own wing with cathedral ceiling. The kitchen opens to an informal dining area and keeping room that is flooded with natural light thanks to skylights and five sets of glass sliders that open to the gardens.
