If charming antique homes with Americana features & great living space are your thing, then you will fall madly in love with this Silvermine gem on a bucolic, fully usable acre with a one bedroom legal rental cottage & party barn. The possibilities here are endless. A babbling brook just adds to the magical aura of this beautiful property. This circa 1832 home features architecturally distinct fireplaces and some original details. The living room & dining room, both with fireplaces & hardwood floors exude the charm & grace of the period. Enjoy cooking meals in the country eat-in kitchen with Garland gas-fired stove & bay window. A tremendous great room with cathedral, beamed ceilings, wood-burning stove, hardwood floors & built-ins is one of the more modern additions. An office & full bath complete the main level. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, a full bath & walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms & bath on the 2nd level, plus a 4th bedroom with skylights & lounge on the the 3rd floor. Ask your lender how much mortgage the rent from the cottage (additional 858 sf) can buy. The last tenant paid $1,400 per month. If all this is not enough to have you come running, then maybe the large party barn & expansive yard will do the trick. The barn is newer construction, but designed in keeping with the other structures including a number of rustic storage sheds. Notable residents of this special home include artists Charles P. Reiffel & Edwin Murray McKay. Pool may be possible.
