Where do you begin when describing such a unique historic property? Built circa 1847 near the Kabletown district of Jefferson County, this home sits on 4.64 acres adjacent to the beautiful community of Eastland. The property extends across Old Cave Rd with approximately 400 feet of frontage along Evitts Run providing a perfect place for picnics or play. In 1986, a 2 acre lot was merged with the original 2.64 acres, which may be subdivided(a preproposal conference with Jefferson County Planning is suggested).
Wind up the tree covered drive, past the original smoke house to find this exceptional home.
The historic home features two covered porches. The large 15X44 covered back porch has views and sounds of Evitts Run. The traditional farmhouse design was enhanced with a large family room addition filled with light . Stay cozy with the Vermont Castings gas stove. The original home boasts a upgraded kitchen, 5 wood burning fireplaces ,antique hardwood floors, exposed log walls, and gorgeous original 3 -floor staircase. Second floor bedrooms each have full baths and fireplaces. Follow the staircase to the 3rd floor with two loft bedrooms serviced by a full bath with an antique claw foot tub. The lower level has a finished 14x26 recreation room with a beautiful stone wood burning fireplace. Walkout to a finished covered patio with views of Evitts Run. Patio has a hot tub that the owner has not used for several years and suggests a service check.
The pool is a private oasis ! Enjoy the sun in the gunite pool and shade in the pool house(12x24). No need to run to the house for the bathroom, the owner added a toilet to the pool house.
Storage is not an issue! The property includes a 5 car detached garage(24x64) with a large unfinished second floor(structure is plumbed). Down the lane, you'll find a second garage(16x32) for yard equipment, ATVs, bikes, etc.
