111 DRAKES DRUM DRIVE
Wonderful opportunity to live in an historically significant Colonial Farmhouse with a charming guest Cottage or independent Home Office, Media room or Gym. Achieving an ideal balance of being in a friendly/walkable neighborhood while also offering superior privacy, the home is tucked behind the cottage in front and surrounded by woods, gardens, and a sparkling saline pool on the home’s rear yard .The three-story house offers a modernized historic feel, with handsome millwork, deep windowsills, exposed interior stone walls but fresh, chic “farmhouse” styling with updated Kitchen, Baths, floor plan and crisp interior color palette. A sunlit Family Room features solarium sized windows and full-sized sliding doors providing easy entertaining and excellent flow to the wide brick Terrace, raised Deck and yard. To the right of entry, you will find a streamlined Rutt Kitchen with subzero refrigeration, gas cooking and well-designed display and storage cabinetry. Steps away and sized for hosting large gatherings ,the spacious Dining Room is just off the family space and kitchen. Reminding us of the homes original structure dating somewhere in the 1700s, find a dramatic a walk-in hearth with natural stone surround. Complimenting this more rustic space pass through two wide cased openings to a large Living Room warmed by fireplaces, positioned in either corner and brightened by windows on its three exposures. Ascend one of two staircases to the second floor featuring three Bedrooms and a large hall bath. Unusual for a home of this age we find high ceilings throughout this level and generous closet and storage space. The large Owners Suite is accessed by its own stair case and offers a gas burning fireplace, fully outfitted Walk-in Closet and spa styled Bath with individual vanities, standing shower and freestanding soaking tub. A third level offers two additional bright, large rooms. This space has flexible purpose and can be used as Bedrooms, Office space, Sitting areas, or Studio.
And there is more…a freestanding cottage provides two points of entry. Accessed either from street side or from the covered parking area, the structure can be used as your lifestyle directs. A large, bright open first level, currently purposed as Living and Dining area alongside the kitchen space with cabinetry and sink. A roomy second level bedroom with skylights and full bath with sauna has all the comforts of home.
Beautifully executed, turn-key, ideally located near transit, shopping and adjacent to Ithan Elementary…
