This is all that and more****L'Aquila Farms is a magnificent and truly unique, gated estate house and farm of 61 acres in a private park-like setting.****The original stone farmhouse was built in 1852. The house has been expanded and enlarged over the years by several creative and innovative owners and architects. Now over 8000 square ft. the present combination of rustic and modern styles is very compelling****Using old stone and vintage chestnut beams, floor to ceiling windows & three fully-lined stone fireplaces, the result is breathtaking and architecturally perfect. The enormous central hearth and chimney are fantastic features. using high ceilings and low, the effect is both grand & comfortable. The house is filled with light and warmth. There are high open spaces & dim secret areas, creating a sense of largeness & coziness in one spacious yet accessible house****It has recently been renovated to bring everything up to the highest standards. The house now has all new thermo-pane Anderson windows & skylights, new Hardie-plank siding, a new architectural grade shingle roof & a chef's kitchen.****A new spacious screened porch off the master bedroom looks out over the pond, paddocks, and forest. New systems, furnaces, pumps & water heaters etc. have been installed throughout the house. A new, stone pillared electronic gate at the entrance increases privacy with a sense of style. Fios & a large whole house generator help create the feeling of being away from it all, while still connected to the world at large****As you enter through the gate and wind down the long, long paved driveway, you can feel it right away. This property has been meticulously planned planted & maintained for 150 years. All manner of trees abound. Wildlife is everywhere.
