Stumble upon this historic homestead, proudly set among the magnificent natural splendor of beautiful Wilburtha Road, and immediately feel a sense of tranquility wash over you. As befits a home of its provenance, the original c. 1765 farmhouse displays a quality of construction and attention to detail that no modern home can compete with, while later additions have yielded both space and amenities. Handsomely positioned among mature trees and lush plantings, a stone walkway leads to the plastered stone home's front entrance. The charming foyer is flanked by a formal living room with wood burning fireplace and an inviting den with walk-in stone hearth. Notable period details include wide-plank wood flooring, deep set windows and charming built-in storage throughout. A picture window invites the light into the large dining room that adjoins an efficient galley kitchen. French doors open up to the family room (added by the cur-rent owners) with vaulted ceilings and walls of windows overlooking the exterior grounds beyond. A convenient powder room completes the main level. Upstairs, find four bedrooms, including the ensuite master, as well as another full bath and a parlor/sitting room. A hidden set of pie stairs leads back downstairs to the living room. Out-door lovers will delight in the exterior's bucolic acreage, complete with a spring fed pond perfect for fishing, skating and swimming. In addition to a historic stone barn, outbuildings include a former smoke house, 2-car detached garage, a pondside gazebo, and a pair of sweet old wishing wells.
