Property Description

Located on a pristine and historic property, this one-of-a-kind stone home offers 5+ bedrooms, 4.5 vintage bathrooms, and nearly 8500 square feet of living space. As you drive up the peaceful lane of 140 Evans Hill Rd, you will be greeted with 31 acres of pure tranquility. The tree lined lane leads to this enchanting horse farm boasting a plethora of amenities, including: a large bank-barn, multiple paddocks for horses to graze, as well as an indoor and outdoor riding arena. This peaceful property hosts a variety of distinct characteristics, such as a majestic stream, pristine landscaping, greenhouse, outdoor kitchen, and a stand-alone artist studio. The stone home maintains many of its historic features, including heavy duty plaster walls, slate roof, American Chestnut floors, original hand hinges, and multiple wood burning fireplaces. A circular driveway in front of the main house connects to a 6-car garage with guest quarters. As you enter this stately home, you are greeted by a foyer that encompasses a curved entrance that opens into a grand hall with crown molding and bench seating. One of the many highlights is a magnificent great room that shines with an elegantly painted ceiling with a detailed medallion, crown molding, and a wood-burning fireplace. Through a set of French doors is a mesmerizing sunroom with a bay window that offers abundant natural light and magnificent views of the property. A luxurious dining room awaits, consisting of built-in cabinets, wood-burning fireplace, and a bay window with deep windowsills. The kitchen is a delight with 2 industrial sized stainless-steel double sinks, tile floors, backsplash and countertops, a walk-in pantry, a GE fridge, and a Bosch microwave. A stellar living room with hardwood floors and crown molding includes access to the second level-- an expansive area offering ample space for family and guests. Gracing this level are 5 spacious bedrooms, all with hardwood floors and windows that provide astounding views. All of the bathrooms on this floor are full and each contain original Moravian tile, tub/shower combos, and large pedestal sinks. The third floor currently holds a toy room with built-in shelves and vaulted ceilings, along with a separate attic space. The unfinished lower level stretches the entirety of the house and has a laundry space with 2 washers and a dryers, 2 outdoor access doors, and 2 interior-connecting staircases.

Stone steps lead to the stunning guest quarters above the garage, housing 1.5 baths, a fully functioning kitchen, barn doors, and a 2nd story that could be used as bedrooms. Near the main house and down a scenic walkway is a cozy 18th century cottage perfect for guests who require privacy. It includes a bedroom, full bath, kitchen, large brick wood-burning fireplace, a bright sunroom for relaxing or reading a book, and also has access to the exterior grounds. The exquisite bank barn contains 9 gorgeous horse stalls, a heated wash room, 2 tack rooms, and a storage area on the lower level, as well as access to the caretaker's quarters. This delightful barn also has electric and water. The upper portion of the barn has finished spaces and open rooms along with the caretaker quarters.
