HUGE PRICE DROP!! Built in 1953 this expanded Dutch Colonial home is a rare find! The marriage of the home to the 8.37 acres is accentuated by a large deck, patio, many gardens and delightful inground pool. There is absolute privacy in the back yard of this home. The house is serviced by natural gas and the heating system is less than a month old! A large heated barn with Offices, machine shop, a train room and more vehicle storage is serviced by its own natural gas service line. Tucked away at the back of the property is a two stall pony barn. It hasn't seen a horse for a few decades but is available for more storage or to fulfill someone's dream of having a horse at home!! The oversize lot has the potential to be divided to create another building lot though no testing has been done. The living room has hardwood floors, gas fireplace and a full solarium with ceramic tiled floor and sliders to the deck - beautiful light and a wonderful place to nurture plants year-round. The living room opens to the formal dining room with built-in and more views of the rear yard. The kitchen was made to accommodate many people: there are two refrigerators, pantry, and, in addition to a café table area in the bay window, there is a large island. It is an original kitchen but much of the design and utility is of its time. The family room also opens to the deck. The master bedroom, with new bath is on the first floor as is the laundry room and huge craft room. See additional remarks! Adjacent to the family room is a guest bedroom with an ensuite bath.The second floor has three bedrooms, a full bath and lots of storage closets. The front foyer gives quick access to the kitchen and the living room and it is also the access via a mud room to the attached garage. The two car garage is very spacious and there is access to another craft room in the full story above the garage. the basement is full and unfinished. There is an additional oversized one car garage , plenty of storage, and upgraded mechanicals the home is still owned by the family that built it and raised their family here. It is a true treasure.
