Property Description


A rare find, this c.1839 sandstone home has been totally restored with the help of an architectural preservationist, an architect, and excellent craftsmen and contractors over the past nine years. Located just minutes from the village limits, the property consists of 87.25 well-maintained acres of meadows and woods, stone walls, walking/x-c skiing trails, restored original barns (including a unique sandstone barn), and the 2,250 sf house; ask your Realtor for a copy of the property's history and land description. With original wide-plank floors, sandstone fireplace, and deep window sills, the home also has been completely upgraded with new plumbing, wiring, heating, roof, foundation drainage, and much more. Spacious living room with wood-burning fireplace; light-filled dining room; large kitchen with custom cabinetry, wood-inlay countertops, local hemlock floors and a ship's ladder by local craftsman Jan Close, leading to a loft/office area. Half-bath, laundry room, and pantry are also on this floor. A rebuilt staircase with custom judges' paneling leads to the completely-remodeled second floor. Two large bedrooms, each with ensuite bath, fill this space. This home, outbuildings, and acreage have been restored with thorough attention to structure and foundation, as well as historical finishes. Convenient to local universities, health-system facilities, and an easy drive to the Adirondack Park, Ottawa, and Montreal. This is a singular 1800s home, completely ready for the 21st century and beyond.
