    Description

    Style and grace abound in this wonderful country estate! Built in 1912, Knollwood Farm is set on almost 3 acres. The first floor includes original terracotta foyer floor and door details with an adjoining powder room. A gracious living room with high ceilings and original oak floors extends to a charming screened in porch. A formal dining room with fireplace provides an elegant year-round entertaining venue. The kitchen includes plenty of storage with glass-enclosed shelving and high end stainless steel appliances. An updated office- which is also considered a bedroom, full bath and mud room also extend off the kitchen and back hall. Within the bright foyer one appreciates the wide staircase with custom banister entering the second floor that includes 4 bedrooms. The primary suite consists of an adjacent office and fireplace, his and hers bathrooms, dressing room and closets. Additionally there are two bedrooms sharing a Jack and-Jill bathroom, and the original main bedroom with separate full bath. All rooms have large windows with screens for summer time breezes. The third floor has a charming bunk room with a full bathroom which could also be used as a play room. Attic space with ample storage is also located on the third floor. The basement includes a home viewing rec room which was fully updated in 2020, plus a wood-paneled wine cellar, full bathroom along with the laundry room. Above a detached three car garage is an apartment with separate kitchen and bathroom. Behind the garage is a half basketball court. The deck and gazebo are wonderful for enjoying the spectacular views of the private yard and gardens with southern exposure. Enjoy the sunrise, sunset and all this wonderful estate has to offer!
