Description

Welcome to one of the oldest and most important homes in the coveted hamlet of Spencertown. This light-filled, graceful center hall colonial dating from 1790 was completely restored in 2007, keeping all the original character while adding modern touches that today's discerning buyer requires. An addition was discretely added to bring the house to approximately 2500 square feet under central AC. Downstairs features a large living room and dining room, each with woodburning fireplace; a nicely laid out kitchen with soapstone counters, a center butcher block island and stainless appliances including a Viking range and Bosch dishwasher; as well as a breakfast room with access to the side porch, a mud room and a half-bath. Upstairs features a primary bedroom with its own fireplace, dressing room with 2 walk-in closets and a full bath. 2 guest bedrooms, an office and another bathroom complete the layout.Heading outside, you will be greeted by a large backyard filled with mature perennial gardens and trees as well as a pond. What a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee or conversation with a friendly Spencertown neighbor. Overlooking the pond is a 2 bedroom guest house with a full kitchen, a recently renovated bathroom and a large deck from which to enjoy the pond and gardens. The guest house is heated and cooled by an electric-assist geothermal system which keeps the house comfortable year-round. This spacious retreat has high ceilings and provides bright sunlight inside which could also make for the perfect artist's studio.Finally, behind all this is a beautiful, large meadow with views of the Taconic foothills. Keep it as is, or perhaps install your own pool and pool-house; there is plenty of room and privacy.Almost equal distance between Great Barrington and Hudson along with easy access to Chatham, the Berkshires and Albany with all they offer. Only a bit more than 2 hours from NYC. Welcome home.
