Overlooking Whale Bone Creek with A Magical Waterfall
Overlooking Whale Bone Creek, a magical waterfall and a natural deep water swimming hole, this 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath historic home, originally a mill, is just skips away from the Chester-Hadlyme Ferry and has been expanded and continuously upgraded. The main level flows easily throughout and includes an elegant wood-paneled living room with a fireplace and Dutch door. A family room with a double-vaulted ceiling, a sitting room with a 2nd fireplace, and a cozy library with built-in bookcases all feature floor to ceiling windows overlooking the creek. The gourmet kitchen, with a center island and a sit-down counter, is full of natural light, while skylights above the farmhouse sink and oversized windows look out to the deck and green rolling hills. The spacious primary suite, with built-in cabinetry and water views, is on the second level, as are two guest rooms and bath. On the terrace level, two sunlit bedrooms with a full bath have their own separate entrance. A detached 3 car garage with an airy open studio space above features skylights, wall of windows, lofted beams, and built-ins. This idyllic, private estate situated on 5.20 acres is full of meandering paths and stone walls, making it ideal for both formal and informal family living in all seasons.
