    Description

    Named "Woodstock" in acknowledgment of the many and varied trees that grew on the original 141 acre forested parcel,this important 3 story painted stone residence was built in 1776 w/ its first noted residents being the family of James Hunter in the harsh winter of 1778. The home has,since its origin,been graced by exceptional stewards,thereby retaining most of the original detail, superior construction, elegance and grandeur. A straight through Center Foyer w/ gleaming wide plank floors showcases both the formal Living and Dining Rooms,each w/ stunning fireplaces and rare Valley Forge marble surrounds. In what was perhaps one of the first examples of the 'open floor plan' these formal rooms connect wi/ a set of impressive 8 paneled doors, easily closed for privacy or more intimate formal dinners. A swinging service door opens from the formal space into the Kitchen. Large stone topped center island is surrounded by fresh,white custom storage and display cabinetry w/ stainless steel appliances, two large work sinks, double ovens and 6 burner gas range. The Family Room, two steps down from the kitchen, enjoys solarium style windows and light from three exposures, while a centrally located fireplace and painted white ship-lathe ceiling add both interest and charm.Two bedroom suites,each w/ fireplace, open to the arched covered terrace and lawn. Providing first level guest space the rooms are adjacent to a renovated slate floored bath w/ white porcelain fixtures.Ascend to find a most handsome second level Library. All walls offer floor to ceiling custom shelving. A wood burning fireplace w/ sophisticated tall wood mantel makes this space as desirable as a Library, Master Sitting Room or exquisite Home Office. Adjacent find a deluxe Master Suite warmed by a wood burning fireplace and featuring unparalleled fully outfitted closets and beautiful en-suite bath.Sharing what was formerly the second level sleeping porch, two charming family bedrooms have detailed paneling and richly stained character grade hardwood floors.Offering as many as 3 bedrooms as well as recreation room and two baths the third level is accessed off a private staircase.The lowest level w/ oversized fireplace, originally the 'summer kitchen' now houses a recreation room, primary storage, and large laundry.Now set on 1.09 acres with a spectacular pool surrounded by flat lawns and exceptional trees for which the property was first known. Precisely maintained, historically significant.
