This charming history-rich home, once a barn as part of the Biddle estate, was originally on the site of a working apple farm, built in the late 1800's. The family~s children, converted the barn into a unique summer retreat, creating additions * making updates in the late 60's/early 70's. Along the long private drive remain some of the original apple trees. The large estate sits on Duncan Lane. The current property has an entrance marked by 2 stone pillars and the original wrought iron gates. The private drive winds through the groundskeeper's cottage + the original Mill house, just below 200 Highland~s property. Mature trees grace the grounds everywhere, with Ash, Holly & Japanese Snowbell among them. The land backs to Appletree Farm Land Trust, affording incredible beauty & lasting privacy. Appreciating the stunning natural setting is blissful, especially from wonderful outdoor patios & decks that provide a private retreat for relaxing & entertaining.
