Just one hour from Manhattan, this Converted Barn, built in 1850, retains its rustic feel without sacrificing modern amenities. The house features 2 sun filled great rooms, both with wide plank floors and original full height stone fireplaces. One of these, with vaulted ceiling and wood burning stove, opens onto the ample kitchen with its rustic pantry, double fridge-freezers, gas range, island and double ovens. Windows in the kitchen face the sprawling back yard and a door leads onto a stone patio and beautiful curved pool, perfect for entertaining. Off the kitchen is a formal dining room with French doors. The house boasts 5 bedrooms, 5 full baths and a powder room, including 2 possible master suites one on the ground floor and one up its own private stairs. There are 3 additional bedrooms, 2 up a separate set of stairs and one on a finished walk-out lower level that is part of an additional 520 SqFt not included in the total square footage. There is also an attached 2 car garage adjacent to the lower level. The house has central ac and heat making it equally inviting during a snowstorm as on a hot summer day. The property's driveway is partially in New Canaan, CT., which incurs an additional yearly tax of $910.58 but gives the owner access to the associated amenities. Conveniently located near shops, restaurants, train and local hiking trails this beautiful property is the perfect year round home or weekend retreat.
