“The Conductor’s House” The northern 1/3 of this home is the local, authentic conductor’s house built by the original Housatonic Railroad Company in 1874. The southern 2/3 of the home was added on in 2003, and both sections have been fully renovated in the Modern Farmhouse motif to blend the wonderful history with contemporary elements and style. Just about every surface has been altered with attention to detail. The theme revolves around the kitchen with an open floor plan that provides warmth for everyday living and uncompromising space for entertaining. The natural light provided by large and plentiful windows adds splendor to every room on both levels. Shade trees at the perimeter keep the house naturally cool in the warmer months, and the modern woodstove adds comfort and a cozy feel on those chilly winter nights. Upstairs the bedrooms are gracious and inviting. Wood and tile floors throughout. The home has ample storage with two basements, two attics, and large closets. Located near the center of the quiet, artistic, and friendly town of Falls Village, the setting and neighborhood makes you feel right at home. Community is everything! Too many other details to list – please inquire! Close to private schools such as Hotchkiss, Salisbury, Indian Mountain, Kent and Berkshire. And the local public schools are excellent. A one-year, broad-range HOME WARRANTY is INCLUDED.
