Renowned Early American antiques dealer, Lewis Scranton, and restoration specialist Jeff Klausen brought this 18th century home back to life. Honoring the detail and materials of the period, the ¾ cape was carefully refurbished, leaving much of the original interior woodwork, the chestnut paneling, and the 4 fireplaces intact. Living room/keeping room, den/old kitchen, dining room with corner cupboard. A built-in bar room a nod to the home’s history as a tavern. An addition of first floor master suite, baths, and kitchen completed the residence. A covered porch and stone patio overlook the grounds, providing a peaceful interface between home and property. The barn was relocated and rebuilt. The one room schoolhouse restored as studio/shop. New 3 bay carriage house.
Landscape includes plentiful plantings and specimen trees. Space for gardens and animals, games and gatherings. A deed restriction reflects the intention to keep this special parcel undivided.
