Step into this sun-filled mid-century ranch and you'll never want to leave. Not one but several gathering spots for friends and family. The star of the house is the light-filled family room just off the updated country/modern kitchen to allow for interaction with the chef of the house. The wood-burning stove will add warmth and joy all winter long. Large double doors lead to the deck for dining/play in every season. The original portion of this expanded ranch has gleaming oak floors with a master bedroom/bath ensuite! Slip out your private back door to the quaint writers' one room cottage (could be seasonal guest space) or the 530 sq ft heated studio - sun drenched with cathedral ceiling and skylights - perfect for meditation, artist/maker, yoga, dance or additional play/stay space. House has a full basement for all the storage you would ever need. Recently updated roof and furnace – heat is supplemented with wood. Calling all makers, the current homeowner has town approval for ‘Home Occupation' to sell crafts/gifts on the property well sited for exposure on this country road. Flowering trees and bushes will delight in every season. Enjoy the rocking chair front porch where you can pick wild raspberries and peaches in mid summer! The house and outbuildings ooze with charm and equally important to speak about with this property is nature at your doorstep. Here are some of the reasons the homeowner loves living here in every season. All this less then 2 hour drive from NYC. 1. Incredible morning bird song that wakes us up in spring, summer and fall 2.
