Property Description

Introducing one of the seven homes on the elevation known as the Ridge, cited by architectural authorities as being the finest group of Federal-style houses in the United States. Built for steamship pioneer Samuel Moreys parents and daughter, this deeply rooted historic residence evokes the finest qualities of New England living. The floor plan is ideal for casual and formal entertaining and features an exquisite custom gourmet kitchen with cherry woodwork, granite counters, and sit-up breakfast bar. A main level addition built to suit modern living while maintaining much of the charm of the historic residence includes a spacious living room with cathedral ceilings and French doors to the outdoor spaces, radiant heat and central air, a loft/study, and master bedroom wing complete with his and hers baths and dressing rooms. The original portion of the home offers beautiful wide pine flooring, five wood-burning fireplaces, generously scaled formal rooms with detailed molding, four additional bedrooms, three baths and a kitchenette that provide ample options for family and guests. Oversized laundry room and finished recreational room with storage in the basement. The grounds of the estate feature mature landscaping, a carriage barn with two bays and storage, a heated workshop for the craftsmen or hobby enthusiast, an in-ground pool, bluestone patio and verdant lawns for al fresco dining, entertaining and relaxing, a pond, and one-bedroom guest cottage.
