Cares slip away as you wind up the driveway beneath the branches of awe-inspiring old-growth trees toward this freshly painted home crowned with a new cedar shake roof befitting its 19th century roots. Thirty acres - half perched over a quiet country road and half along the waters of Stony Brook - offer opportunities for endless exploration and unlimited weekend pursuits in the barn and gardens. A romantic grape arbor leading to a refreshed patio and stone walls extending from one of two garages only further the blissful bucolic atmosphere. Inside, large rooms range from impeccably elegant to rustically airy. The most dramatic is the cathedral great room with tall built-ins, a stone fireplace and an adjoining dining area with a recessed aquarium providing soothing mealtime entertainment. Past the grandly-scaled kitchen, with commercial-sized appliances to match, is the glimmering formal dining room, which invites celebrations of every kind. The light, bright living and sun rooms are balanced by the warm coziness of a tavern-like library with rough-hewn beams and a loft. Private areas include a sky-lit office, or playroom, and a multi-room guest wing accessed by the mudroom staircase. Grouped atop the formal staircase are a pretty suite, 2 nicely separated bedrooms with an up-to-date shared bath, and the main suite boasting double walk-in closets and a balcony. Don’t miss the finished basement, a gamer’s paradise or perhaps a future gym! And for in-laws or those yet to fly the coop, a darling cottage is totally self-sufficient, yet connected via a breezeway. This property truly encapsulates the natural beauty, laidback hospitality and rich history of the Hopewell Valley!
