Property Description

“An American Masterpiece” - Placed on the north edge of 1+ acres of level waterfront on Gorham’s Pond, this immaculate four bedroom, 3,321 SF home, originally build in 1856, sits on a breathtaking, southern facing property. Expanded, renovated and thoroughly modernized since its 19th century inception, when it was rumored to be safe house on the Underground Railroad, the house has wide plank wood floors that run throughout. The first floor includes a large family room with cathedral ceiling and wood burning Franklin stove, stately living room, separate office and playroom, dining room and a true chef's kitchen. A 36” vintage, six burner Wolf Gourmet range, as well as second built-in stove, are surrounded by marble counter tops and anchored by a Blue Bahia granite center island. There is no event too big, or small, for this fabulous kitchen. The upstairs level is made up of a Master Suite and three additional bedrooms that provide incredible views over the Great Lawn and down to Gorham’s Pond. 19th century stone walls surround the property and lead to an elaborate entrance and driveway, which along with multiple covered porches, hidden terrace, dual staircases, ample wine cellar and original lead windows remind one of the classic quality and design of this historic property. A boat house at the southern end of the property provides additional play space or storage. Attached 2 car garage. Live, cook, kayak and relax at your own beautiful and unique retreat, 55 minutes from NYC.
