Known as the Jefferson/Ebert House, this antique Mid-Country Colonial was built in the 1840s, redesigned in 1905 by renowned architect, Theodore Blake, and masterfully renovated under the expert guidance of noted architect, Rob Sanders, resulting in a perfect blend of treasured history and contemporary expectations. Dine under the gazebo, unwind by the fountain on the stone terrace or relax on the circa 1843 porch while enjoying over an acre and a half of exquisitely landscaped, organic gardens and ancient tall sugar maples. The stunning landmark residence offers 6500+ square feet of beautifully proportioned, light-filled interiors characterized by superb architectural detail and extraordinary craftsmanship. A 1700+ square foot guest house with sauna and plunge pool, a charming garden shed and a quaint stone outbuilding complete this very special country compound, just minutes from town, train and schools.
