Once upon a time...almost 200 years ago, a young couple built a lovely two story log cabin on the edge of a bright meadow. They used wormy American Chestnut logs from the farm. They planted boxwoods in front and a black walnut tree out by the smokehouse. Fast forward to today...that lovely cabin stands strong. The walnut tree still produces its treasures but now has a girth that three Goliaths could not span. The boxwoods nestle the front porch with privacy. Step inside and see how yesteryear meets all the best amenities of today. You are greeted by a warm inviting living room with exposed beams and those lovely American chestnut logs. The handmade bricks in this first of two fireplaces makes the room even more enchanting. The dining hall which has room for the largest of families is crowned with toasty chestnut beams and spills out onto the shady deck made of Brazilian Cumaru teak. Enter the chef's kitchen and see the honed marble island top that will produce your perfect pastries. The 48" Monogram gas range with dual ovens is vented with a Dacor hood. There are also a built-in ice maker, instant hot water faucet, and a warming drawer for more convenience. The laundry room has cork floors and plenty of storage space. The mud room has its own entrance with a 2.5" thick wood entry door, a shower, and floors of Peruvian Travertine tile. The mud room bath also has its own septic system and field line. The warmly paneled den offers another brick fireplace, ample space for a desk, and built-in bookshelves. An all-seasons screened patio provides space for socializing and a view of the surreal pastoral surroundings. Your guests will enjoy the two over-sized guest rooms on the main floor that share a Jack & Jill bath with walls covered in English wallpaper, more Peruvian Travertine tiles on the floors and shower, and the stand alone tub that is heated on both ends. The second floor is home to the master suite which envelope you in those chestnut logs as you drift off to dream about the many past and future adventures of this special place. Through the changing room is the master bath which has a walk-in shower covered in mosaic-onyx glass tiles. The grounds of this estate span over eleven acres and include a massive turn of the century barn which is restored with a wide staircase going up to the loft which can easily be a dance floor or a banquet hall and is designed for entertaining many guests. There is also ample room for your tractor, implements, horses, cows and hay as well. You will also find many delightfully landscaped areas with beautiful flowers, bushes and trees.
