Amazing space for all the people, projects, and animals that you want to have with you on a lovely, rolling 10.72 acre property!
What started as an original 4 bedroom home of ~2314 s.f. with a full basement & daylight windows was built in 1975. Then in 1980, mom came to live in her own ~1040 s.f., 1 bedroom home designed for an elder with increasing mobility challenges who wanted her independence. Finally, in 2000, a large master bedroom and bath were added as the two homes became one when they were joined by a spectacular sun room with high ceilings, big hot tub, walk-in shower & kitchenette - all to an eye with aging very comfortably in place. This added another ~1490 s.f. for a total of 4844 s.f. Mostly oak plank flooring throughout. Solid cherry doors on the main level. Sun room is all tiled. There's a lovely fireplace in vaulted great room of the main house, plus 2 woodstoves (guest house & main basement). Anderson/Pella windows. Central vac. There is about another 2,000 s.f. of mostly finished space in the lower level which has many daylight windows and project rooms for weaving, sewing, airplane building, computer parts storage... There is even plumbing in the basement of the main house for a third full kitchen.
Gracious entry to main home and practical entry via a mudroom with large double sink and pet door and storage. Long overhangs/orientation welcomes winter sun deep into living spaces. Set well back from Waldo Road on crushed limestone drive.
