Historic Ballyhack Farm, built c. 1760, combines period charm with modern convenience. While period grace notes include original wide-board floors, beams, 6 original fireplaces & millwork throughout–as well as uncharacteristically high ceilings–there is also a Chef’s Kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances from Viking and Sub-Zero, and Central A/C. The magnificent 4 bedroom/3.5 bath house rests on 14.32 +/- lush acres with beautiful lawns, verdant landscaped gardens, a vegetable garden, and fruit-producing trees overlooking the natural woodland and pines of the Ballyhack Preserve. Enter the spacious center hall which is flanked by the paneled Parlor with large fireplace and paneled Den with fireplace. Open & airy Eat-in Kitchen/Dining with pantry and laundry room. A newly added, breathtaking, light-filled Great Room with walls of windows & French Doors that lead to a private terraced stone patio overlooking the gardens. The main floor also has a spacious bedroom with fireplace, a study with an original Beehive oven and a full bath and powder room. Upstairs, an elegant primary bedroom with fireplace, dressing room and two more beautifully proportioned bedrooms, and two full baths. And just wait until you see the Secret Room with amazing renovation possibility! Perfectly situated for hiking, lake, river & skiing activities, golf & tennis as well as renowned dining and cultural venues. 2-car barn/ garage and a garden shed. Full-house generator. Gorgeous and special. Must see!
