About 257 BRICK MILL Road

Tranquil setting, hunter's perch, quiet nature sounds, peace. If you're looking for hustle and bustle, don't bother to continue reading. The further you drive off of Rt 896, the more you realize the treasure that's tucked up in the woods. Setting on the side a a hill, this home is ideally designed as a two story that you need to see, to understand the space. Walk into the large foyer that leads into the great room and lower level.In the great room, we're drawn to the triple set of slider windows that just want to take you right outside to the deck with new Trex and sleek black railing to overlook the property and wooded area Furniture can stay tucked under the overhang of the house roof, so the weather has little influence. If you stayed inside, we turn to see the floor to ceiling brick wall surrounding the fireplace, flanked by built in book cases. The shelves that give place for treasures are lit by track lighting. To the side is the dining area with vaulted ceiling, that opens to the kitchen. The most loved room by the current owner, this is a bright space to work, fellowship and be. Skylights and windows flood the kitchen with natural light, you may not need the hanging pendulum lights to lighten the freshly painted cabinets and stainless steel appliances. Add stools to the island and you might spend the day, right in the kitchen. Along the hall way there is pantry, broom closet, coat closet and linen storage. Past the foyer is the Primary bedroom with a dressing area that has built in drawers and closet area plus a private entrance to the full bath, new vanity with the soft close doors and new flooring that extends from the bedroom. Look up at the skylight that replicates a fish bowl.The back half of the house has vaulted ceiling and exposed beams. You'll see that as soon as you walk into the bright foyer. There's new flooring, the sidelights and new light offer a well lit direction, to head to the lower level. The greeting to the lower level is by more brick, with a repurposed mantle and a propane insert waiting for the next owner to hook up. This level has a spacious family room and slider door to the deck with porch swing. At this house, the outdoors continues to welcome you. This level has two bedrooms, both freshly painted and window coverings stay. The full bath has a new toilet.The utility room has access to the second flue to the chimney, the AC unit also serves as a heat source minimizing oil cost. The room is also the laundry and has a walk out door to the back patio. Sure, head down the path to the fire pit, where life comes to a stand still and simple pleasures like reminiscing take over.If tinkering and doing, are more your style, there is the two car garage with skylights and a new door, to either park vehicles or organize tools along the ceiling height peg board on two walls and the work bench on the other. With attention, there is room to turn vehicles around and bring others to enjoy the solitude of the property. New gutters and guards eliminate the maintenance factor for the roof. The three acres buffers from the busyness beyond it's borders. Step into what you have been waiting for. Peace.
