Like stepping into a Jane Austen novel - private treed-lined lane over quaint arched bridge (holds 15 tons) across pictorial Tay River to dignified two-storey stone home with a mystical setting. Wrought-iron railing around stone porch to handsome front door with yesteryear transom and sidelights. Inside, century 1839 home has original wide-plank pine floors in excellent condition. High ceilings on main floor and upstairs. Wide 9" baseboard and 2ft thick walls. Living room built-in efficient wood-burning fireplace and large windows with deep sills. Formal dining room. The kitchen warms your heart, made for hot biscuits and fresh berry jam. Main floor den and full bath. Upstairs 3+1 bedrooms, full bath, laundry & Juliette balcony. Like Austen, decor of sense and sensibility with added upgrade comforts. Dry insulated basement has thick stone walls and outside door. Backyard wood-burning stone oven. Off kitchen is generous covered stone patio - surrounded by grace, beauty and tranquility. (id:153)
