Property Description

From the wisteria forecourt to the spring-fed skating pond 'out back' - this house on the northern slope of Chestnut Hill, designed by Willing, Sims & Talbutt in the Norman farmhouse style, is resplendent with possibilities for anyone who loves to live simply and graciously; terraced gardens, a solarium, balconies, a springhouse grotto, stone ruins and a perfect sledding hill. Beautiful proportions and details in all the major rooms - windows abound with magnificent views for your guests and family. The second floor lends itself to three bedroom suites with dressing rooms and fireplaces. Or, if you so desire, there are those useful extra rooms for the office, studio, guestrooms, workshop or yoga. Updating will be required to bring this
house to its full potential. This property works on many levels, creating an enjoyment that only comes with a sense of place and completeness. Includes a large detached garage with additional storage. Information about repairing Bells Mill Road is included in documents under "other"
