With six bedrooms and four and a half baths and 5, 088 finished sq. ft., there is so much to fall in love with. The house is designed by Deck House and sited on a hilltop inclusive of 2.3 acres.

Or, you can go outside and simply observe nature from the 7-person Hot Tub during the summer months or snow-filled winter’s day. The main level features an incredible, glassed-in cathedral space for the living and dining areas; large, floor-to-ceiling windows follow the vaulted space up and look out into the wooded area, creating a pleasant and calming wooded backdrop to the entire space. Much of the home offers beautiful, Brazilian cherry wood floors, with mahogany wood trim doors and windows throughout. The color of these materials provides a sense of harmony with the outdoors. The lofted area above the kitchen and dining 1708 Smuggler's Runroom areas adds additional coziness and provides a private space for listening to music, reading a book, or just looking out into the woods.

A bonus walk-in butler’s pantry and wine room immediately off the 1708 Smuggler's Runkitchen include an ice machine, tap sink, and plenty of storage for bar accessories, wine bottles, and party supplies. But wait, there’s more: The Family Room adjacent to the kitchen is a good place to just plain relax after a tiring day or Holiday meal. Then there is the nicely sized laundry area and mudroom conveniently accessible both from the garage and kitchen. There, you will find a side-by-side washer and dryer, built-in cabinets, and a sink.
