Commanding a spectacular hilltop site amid 10 acres of rolling countryside in the Ipswich River watershed, this striking colonial offers an irresistible blend of elegance, luxury and the simple pleasures of country life. Thoughtfully restored inside and out, the home has retained its classic floor plan, with the main level anchored by formal living and dining rooms that feature brick patios/floors, fireplaces, double-hung windows, and masterful crown moldings, accented by high ceilings and hardwood floors. An enchanting family room offers coffered ceiling with exposed wood beams, a huge fireplace, lovely wide window seats framing views of the sprawling gardens leading down to the private Mill Pond and brook. The overall effect of the home is one of beauty, order, and expansiveness, with nature and the surrounding countryside a constant and calming presence. Includes stone fountain, 4-car garage and a large barn. Conveniently located to Turner Hill Golf Club and Willowdale State Forest.
