Move Mouse Over Pictures To View


Up a winding private drive, overlooking the fields, sits this rare and wonderful work of craftsman art. Come in through the mud room where there's a sink for potting, washer and dryer for washing and drying, window seats with storage beneath, shelving above. Walk across the antique burnished floors to the kitchen and you will wonder if kitchen is adequate to describe what you find. All of the cabinetry, all of the moldings, each archway, every panel is handcrafted. Two islands for friends to join in the celebration of food. The twin Sub-zeros are separated by a custom hutch. The wine refrigerator and the warming drawer are built into the islands for easy access. The range is a Lacanche. The dining area consists of the view framed by the paneled arch and best seen from the window seat.

A sun porch sits just off the kitchen, offering a protected view to enjoy the morning coffee ritual.

A small office, just off the kitchen, for life's little details.

The living room seamlessly flows from the dining area. A row of french doors brings in the sun, opens up to the view, and sets a counterpoint to the fireplace on the opposite wall. Walk out to the slate patio to enjoy the evening breeze, the summer sun, fall foliage or winters bite.

The library, with it's stained wood paneling and coffered ceilings, fireplace, row of view capturing windows, is the place to curl.

A second sun porch waits just off the library.

A red brick carpet of a walkway cuts a swath through the perennials to the formal main entrance, foyer and paneled hall.

Follow the staircase to a cozy reading alcove in the upper hall.

A porthole window gives glimpse in the master suite. The arched windows drench the bedroom with sunlight. French doors swing to the mahogany deck. The master bath is full of custom marble and nickel. Built-in shelves and walk-in closets for life's necessities.

The three remaining bedrooms and baths offer the huge views down the valley, or intimate views of the grounds.

The twenty acres offers privacy and a protected view-shed. The pond reflects the clouds, the landscaping full of perennials, the field rolls off into the horizon.
