One-of-a-kind treasure. This quaint circa 1790 cape-style home is brimming with period craftsmanship including built-ins, unique wide-plank wood floors, classic details and vintage, hand-forged hardware. Lovers of historic homes will admire the original hand-hewn beams, adding a dramatic touch. The home's timeless design includes a centered front entry, a centralized chimney, and four gabled dormers, with enclosed rooms offering cozy comfort. An inventive wet bar is cleverly hidden off the main sitting room, and two large working fireplaces welcome you at the back entrance, one featuring a beehive oven. The kitchen has been thoughtfully updated to maintain the home's unpretentious beauty, incorporating custom cabinets, new wood flooring, concrete countertops and modern appliances. The main floor includes a guest suite, ideal for visitors or as a primary bedroom. The spacious dining room is perfect for gatherings and daily meals, despite one non-functional fireplace that can be restored. Upstairs, four bedrooms offer ample built-in storage. The primary bedroom comes with an en-suite bath and another room nearby serves as a dressing room, walk-in closet, or home office. An additional full bath is accessible from the hallway, and a large room at the end serves as a den/TV room. The property sits on over 3 acres, featuring a two-car detached garage, early stone walls, a wildflower garden, a four-stall barn with electricity and a paddock., The landscape offers a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of city life, making it an ideal setting for those seeking a tranquil and picturesque living environment. The property's size and natural features offer a blank canvas for outdoor enthusiasts to design their perfect recreational space. Envision your own paradise with a custom-built pool, a spacious patio for entertaining, a sprawling vegetable garden, or establish a private park with trails and picnic areas. There is plenty of room to add an RV, container home or a yurt (buyers should confirm feasibility and approval process with the town). Recent updates (within the last four years) include a renovated kitchen, restored timber beams, a new septic system, radon air mitigation, interior painting, new insulation, entire exterior of the home painted, new sump pump and a 250-gallon oil tank. While offering a sense of seclusion and privacy, this home is conveniently located close to Rte 188, Rte 67 and Quarry Walk with shopping, dining and medical facilities. Enjoy nearby recreational attractions like tennis courts, the Oxford Greens public golf course, hiking/biking trails and state parks. Whether you're envisioning a family residence, a sustainable living project, or a recreational getaway, this land offers the flexibility and potential to bring your dreams to fruition. Seize the opportunity to own and develop this versatile piece of paradise, and start turning your dream lifestyle into reality!
