Ripe for Re-invention... Antique Dutch Stone Colonial awaits the vision of its next owner(s). With acreage, frontage on major flowing water (Stony Creek) multiple old fireplaces (not all currently serviceable) wide board floors, large beams and a scale not often found locally in Dutch stone houses, this surely fits the bill for those seeking a home to create in their personal style. The house is sited diagonally, on a corner parcel. It features rather heavy landscaping in the front yard, and thus offers privacy within, during the seasons one is apt to be outdoors. The setting certainly enhances the 'Charm' factor. With a Cedar shake roof, historically correct shed dormers front and rear (with standing seam metal front edges) handsomely re-pointed exterior stonework, a bluestone walkway and a fenced in yard...it's pretty as a picture. The creek will certainly knock your socks off. This house could be spectacular with landscape design in the rear yard enhancing Mother Nature's bounty. All we think the house needs added outside is a roomy rear porch off the main floor living room, and some expansive exterior doors to bring the outside world indoors. And, of course, one could improve the open, covered porch on the ground level, making it a screened room for summer's balmy weather. Imagine the view of the rushing creek, and its sounds filling the indoors with exterior doors open to the main level. Totally enchanting possibilities and little to no distraction from the country roads outside. The upstairs is currently configured as 4 bedrooms plus walk-through spaces, with two staircases (one to the kitchen) plus a pull-down stair to the large attic. This layout could easily be re-thought for a more 21st century flow and additional bathroom(s). Note that the house is also offered, at a higher price, either with 15+ additional acres, or perhaps even with a very large barn and 18-19 additional acres. The current level of privacy of the house on the 3+ acres is not lost however, if a purchaser does not need the additional land or a huge barn for their country lifestyle. Additional lands are all across town roads from the house. They are just optional choices. Please discuss these options with the seller's agent for clarity.
