This stunning estate, originally built in 1774 (later expanded in 1937,) has a rich history, and was painstakingly restored and cared for by the current owner over the last 20 years.
The property itself is 3+ acres. A professional landscaper was brought in to design the gardens and trees lining the property. This in addition to the manicured lawn, provides a tranquil and picturesque setting with the possibility to host large events. The outdoor amenities continue across the grounds with three stone patios, a fountain, stone carriage house foundation, and two sheds.
