From a quiet no-thru rural road, a gated entry drive welcomes you onto the acreage and leads to a large parking area, where an overheight pillared entry invites you into this quality- built 3 Bed plus Den Executive Home with all of your day-to-day living areas on the 1934 sqft main level.
A tiled foyer opens to a stunning Great Room hosting the Kitchen, Living and Dining areas and boasting a wall of picture windows perfectly positioned to maximize the views, rustic American Cherry Hardwood flooring, an airy 11 ft overheight ceiling, and a woodstove that's waiting to bring warmth and ambiance to both the Living Room with its wall of built-in cabinetry and the Dining Room where picture windows invite beautiful views to your evening dinners!
The efficiently-planned Custom Kitchen features a sizable granite island with a prep sink and breakfast bar, ample shaker wood cabinetry and granite countertop space, handsome tile work, quality stainless steel appliances including a 4-burner gas stove, and a fabulous dry bar with wine nook. A door leads out to a large glass- railed deck that wraps around one side of the home and offers picture-perfect views of the ponds, pastures and the sea; relax and sip a glass of wine while watching for the occasional cruise ship to pass by in the distance!
Off the Kitchen is a large Laundry Room with a sink, cupboards and counter space, and a door to an attached Double Garage with attic access, while the Living Room has french double doors that open to a splendid Den/Office with a lighted ceiling fan and perimeter lighting.
Completing the main level is a hallway hosting a 2 pc Powder Room and what could best be described as the Master Wing of the home; here you'll find an inspiring oceanview Master Suite featuring a walk-in closet with built-ins, a handy linen closet, a 4 pc ensuite with a dual sink vanity, a custom-tiled shower, and a bidet with a sink.
A door leads out to a small covered deck and a fenced-in garden area that would make an ideal spot for a hot tub, and nearby is a small solarium greenhouse and multiple garden areas with raised beds for growing your own fresh organic veggies, herbs and flowers.
The 1848 sqft Lower Level with its 9 ft ceilings and in-floor radiant heat is a great extension of your daily living space and hosts a bright Family/Rec Room with 4 picture windows framing the same delightful views that can also be enjoyed from the adjacent Bedroom. There's also a 4 pc Bath and a Storage Room that could serve as an additional Bedroom if needed.
From the Family/Rec Room a door provides access to a lovely In-Law Suite with its own covered patio and separate exterior entry door, a large Bedroom, a 4 pc Bath with a tub/shower combo, plus a Kitchenette with a sink, wood cabinetry and a full-size fridge...perfect for extended family situations or use it as an air B&B/rental! The main level of the home has a built-in vacuum and heat pump, while the lower level has its own dedicated water pressure tank.
Nicely separated from the main home and accessible from the main parking area is a huge 1370 sqft overheight Workshop/Studio with a separate 1 Bed Suite! The extended drive-thru Workshop is insulated and features power and water (with its own pressure tank), oversized doors to the front parking area, plenty of space for your trailer or boat with room to spare, a door to a small practical workshop area, and 3 exterior independent bay storage areas.
Stairs lead to the upper level where you'll find a bright 796 sqft Studio, mostly finished and featuring a sliding glass door to a Juliet balcony and a deep tub sink...nice creative workspace for your arts, crafts and hobbies without the need for constantly tidying!
On the side of the workshop and only accessible from the exterior is a fabulous 626 sqft Guest Suite that offers even more Air B&B/rental potential! Here you'll find a bright open plan layout with an overheight vaulted ceiling, a woodstove, a full Kitchen with a generous amount of cupboards/countertops space, a large Bedroom with a mirrored closet and lighted ceiling fan, a laundry area with a washer/dryer and cupboards, plus a 3 pc Bath with a shower.
Nicely separated from all the other buildings is a cute 420 sqft “Shabin” or bunkie with a small fridge and cupboards, as well as a private deck that wraps around to an outdoor bath with sink, shower and enclosed bidet with flush toilet...fun and funky space that could be rented out as a basic B&B.
This amazing acreage offers everything you need for a hobby farm including a 1090 sqft 4-stall horse barn surrounded by an electric fence, a round pen, 4-5 fenced and cross-fenced pasture areas, plus a leveled area that's perfect for a riding ring.
