Built ca 1730 by Daniel Bishop of Guilford, the Bishop cottage is a remarkable, historic quintessential New England cape. The property includes a main residence, spectacular pool house, 60’ heated gunite saltwater pool, 2 bay garage w/ attached climate-controlled gym and 2 outbuildings. This fully renovated antique home has many original features, exposed beams, wide board floors and antique windows. The pool house, built in 2016 in rustic style with wood and stone floors, doubles the living space without compromising historic value. Upgrades include high-end appliances (Lacanche range, Bosch and Sub-Zero), Waterworks fixtures, Kohler generator servicing all buildings, Lutron lighting, multi-zone climate systems, and resurfaced pool in 2022. The cottage includes living room with fireplace, eat-in kitchen, laundry/mud room, primary bedroom (adjoining private sunroom), full bath with soaking tub, and a powder room. The upper level has two spacious bedrooms and full bath. The pool house has a large entertaining space, post-in-beam vaulted ceilings, fieldstone fireplace, modern kitchen, luxurious bath w/ steam shower, dining room with French doors accessing wraparound cedar deck w/open views, and recreation room w/ Argentine barbecue. Adjoining the 250+ acre Bethlehem land trust, the grounds are professionally landscaped, irrigation throughout, running stream / pond, stone walls, lush lawns and well-established perennial gardens in the enclosed 2-acre property.
