This Vintage Victorian/Colonial (1865/1813) farmhouse displays a gracious interior architectural restoration, adding French Doors to open onto the pool lawn and entry wall openings to increase light and space in the living room. The grand central dining room is scaled with 4 added columns and glass doors to the connecting rooms, library, living and entry hall, as well as to the front porch and pool lawn. The formal fireplace is in the living room; and there is a full bath in the Library, so it could be a 5th bedroom. The Eat-in Kitchen with its central countertop, original brick fireplace and dining alcove in the added bay window, has exits to the side entry porch, mud/laundry room and back terrace, as well as accessory apartment/pool entry. Because of the scale of the original sash windows and all the new glass doors, this antique has very bright natural light.
The grand front staircase with its original balustrade in the entry hall and the smaller back stair for the possible accessory apartment entry both access 2nd floor landings and 4 bedrooms with 3 bathrooms. All bathrooms have been stylishly updated and a kitchenette has been added to the bedroom above the kitchen, the accessory apartment. A separate Staircase leads up to the fully restored attic room with 5 'new' eyebrow dormer windows and a half bath.
The 2 car garage stands apart from the house. The Pool is a creative shape with wide circular steps for children to play and a 50 ft length for swimming laps, no diving; and there is a full length Bocci court on the opposite side of the house. The Greens Farms location is close to many shops; the Greens Farms train station and Burying Hill beach are also within walking distance.
