Less than 10 minutes from the centre of town, this 2+ acre site borders on extensive conservation land and enjoys second floor water views. The property includes a main house, pool/spa and pool house.
Behind the front elevation's colonial archetype is a light-filled upside- down interior with 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 6 fireplaces and multiple walk-outs to 4 porches spread across two levels. Upstairs, the living room, dining room, kitchen and master bedroom rise up to soaring cathedral ceilings. Throughout, the house is detailed with reclaimed hardwood, classic mouldings and trim and top-of-the-line appliances and equipment.
