Description

Take in the full benefits of the countryside with this unique property built in 1919 located on Selborne Road within walking distance to the charming village of Centreville. The Henry Canby House stands proudly, with a classic beauty fitting for a property originally owned by Yale professor and author Henry Seidel Canby and his wife, poet Marion Ponsonby Canby. With intermittent trees casting a play of shadows across the rolling slope of the lawn, circular drive, and intricate stone exterior, the colonial is scenic in any season. This 4.7 acre lot includes the main house and surrounding lawn, as well as a portion of the pond spanning the original grounds. Step in from the foyer, through the enclosed main door, into an open center hall showcasing the colonials layout, which amplifies air flow and the natural light emitted through French doors, illuminating the turned staircase and entrances to family room with wood burning fireplace, spacious dining room and living room. Epicureans will love the additional meal prep and storage spaces offered by the Butlers pantry, with a dishwasher, additional sink and refrigerator, and exceptional tiger maple cabinetry. Ease of access in to the eat in kitchen on the west end, which features stone counters, large center island seating five, and custom designed alcove for the natural gas commercial grade range with a hidden exhaust fan. A magnificent sun room receives light from the nine sets of French doors and boasts terra-cotta flooring, leading to exterior, hedge bordered, stone lined courtyard. Second floor offers four bedrooms, laundry, and ante-room with additional storage and lounge space, as well as the Master suite, complete with two individual baths and dressing areas, two fireplaces, and den. Upstairs, the third level includes remaining three bedrooms with ample closet space and two complete bathrooms. The walk out basement receives natural light and air flow from the full sized windows in family room, also half bath, separate gym, wine cellar to house 500 bottles, and theatre accommodates an audience of six. Touches of character arise throughout the house, from the marble Greek key molding, deep window sills, and marble fireplaces to the brass hardware and authentic bronze chandelier from the original design. The Henry Canby house offers the historic charm of the past century, bringing it into the present a subtle, modern luxury and up to date systems.
