A rare opportunity to own a piece of history in a breathtaking setting in the heart of Edgemont. Nestled on 1.54 acres of level private property, this unique Colonial Farmhouse offers quiet, country living within 26 miles of NYC. The home was built in the 1850's and has been restored, expanded and cared for over the years. Distinctive details include a rocking chair front porch, wide plank hardwood floors, 6 fireplaces, a secret staircase, brick hearth with wood burning stove, original poured glass window panes, mansard roof, and hand laid stone walls. Traces of the old tennis court, not yet restored, remain. Rather than being formally landscaped, like standard suburban yards, the lawn is surrounded by wooded areas which so enclose the property in summer and shield it from neighbors that it is easy to imagine being deep in the country. This house is one of the unique treasures of Edgemont, an important reminder of local history.
