This architectural gem is a three-story, all-original stone home with over 4,000 square feet of living space. Spacious, light-filled rooms make it the perfect home for entertaining.
The entrance to this home takes guests to the second floor, with abundant natural light throughout, thanks to impeccable architectural sense in positioning the home’s windows. The second floor is home to the large primary bedroom with a separate dressing room, filled with custom cedar cabinetry, plus a bath with custom cabinets, a large soaking tub, a separate marble shower, and heated marble floors. The den offers extra living space which can be used as another bedroom or an in-home office.
Back on the first floor, a living room with a 9ft long original fireplace with the original cooking arm attached. It’s the perfect spot for cold winter nights reading by the fire; a lovely seating area offers extra living space. Beyond, a beautiful large gourmet chef kitchen features top appliances, six burner Garland cooktop, Liebherr refrigerator, dual sinks, and granite counters. A bathroom and laundry room are conveniently located on this level, as well.
The third floor is truly amazing, with towering 13-foot ceilings, and massive Y-shaped wood beams that were used in the construction of 18th-century ships. A breathtaking chandelier sits directly in between the beams. Three large bedrooms and a beautiful full bath with an antique claw foot tub round out this floor.
Outside, the property offers beautifully sited in-ground salt water, a heated swimming pool, plus an entertainment area with mature trees and plantings. The outdoor area also includes a new screened-in porch, a fire pit, and multiple stone patios to relax. Behind the wooded area are mountains which can be seen from the 3rd floor and seasonally during the winter.
Two large barns are included at Oak Estate. The newer barn, erected in the last ten years, has electricity and water; the older barn can be converted to a two-car garage or another living space. A large open shed and a small gardener’s shed are included as well.
Last, the Oak Estate has a fascinating history, deeded to the Wynkoop family by King George III in 1760. It was built with a combination of various stones such as limestone, blue stone, red stone, and field cliff stones. Thanks to its solid 2-foot stone walls, all windows have sitting sills, to take in the tranquil landscape below, as well as the property across the road, included in the 6.57 acreage.
Make Oak Estate your own, or rent it; it is currently an income-producing property on Airbnb, with accounting information provided with an accepted offer.
