With 20 acres adjacent to the Foster Country Club, this beautiful Center Chimney Cape has been meticulously restored, and intertwines modern integrity with inspiring period detail. This home was built with exceptional craftsmanship and the structure was framed using broad, axe cut timbers of the highest integrity.
Inside the home, you will see the different elements in each room blended together harmoniously with the granite of the hearths and fireplaces merged expertly with the wide cut hardwood floors, and the white painted brick of the exposed chimney blending beautifully with the billowy plaster artistry.
The kitchen features an inspired and original motif that shows elements of a wholesome country kitchen as well as featuring a bright modern color palette and well-placed LED lighting. The kitchen is thoughtfully arranged with a delightful area to eat meals and features hand-carved kitchen cabinetry.
The first level of the home has a comfortable living room and dining room with ceilings that are remarkably high for the historic era and show the original axe cut beams. Additionally, there is a lively sitting room featuring a cozy fireplace and a new woodwork ceiling of a lighter color motif. The first floor also features beautifully carved wood mantelpieces that frame the stone fireplaces.
Additionally, the home has a first floor master bedroom and bathroom, with a private entrance that offers lifestyle flexibility for the owner, as well as added convenience for when hosting guests.
As one comes to the top of the staircase, one finds the beautiful white-painted brick of the plump chimney with its lovely curves and gentle taper. The upstairs bedrooms have glowing original amber-hued hardwoods and the upstairs master bedroom hosts a lovely fireplace.
The house is surrounded by pristine countryside with rolling hills covered in wildflowers and authentic stone walls, as well as untouched forests with walking trails surrounded by the sites and sounds of nature.
The nearby country club features a marvelous 18-hole golf course that challenges and inspires golf enthusiasts with its variable and picturesque terrain. In addition, the country club features a charming restaurant that hosts club members and guests in the club's main hall.
This one of a kind gem additionally includes a variety of delightful historic details including a beehive oven -- a cubic cubby hole carved in the granite of the hearth and covered by a beautiful wood panel that slides aside -- intended in the original era for keeping food warm. For the discerning home buyer, this property offers a rich blend of historic inspiration and modern comfort.
