Picture the old sea captains' homes that dot the New England coastline & you will have a sense of what awaits you at Forty Foot Rd. As you meander through this treasure dating back to 1802, you will notice the abundance of 20" deep window sills found in every room. Narrow width pumpkin pine floors line the entrance way & the large reception parlor to the right. This room has exposed wood beams, a carved mantle & wood burning fireplace & 5 sets of deep windows. Across the entrance way & into an open cove is a winding staircase fitted with hand wrought iron railings that take you to the 2nd floor of the original house. Here is the master bedroom, a large bath & a 2nd bedroom/sitting room/nursery. A clever buyer may utilize all of the rooms to make a master suite served by front and back staircases. There is ample closet space in the master & with wide pumpkin pine floors, oriental carpets look spectacular as the sun pokes through more deep windows. The front & rear staircases will take you to the 3rd floor where 4 rooms can be combined in several ways to give you bedrooms or storage space + a large bath w/tub/shower. From the first floor front entrance & moving towards the back of the home, you pass through a formal dining room & into a kitchen best described as "country French." A 6 burner professional gas range is built into a center island topped with granite. Custom cabinetry & built in appliances combined w/ skylights gives you the feeling that you are in an outside garden. Standing at the single bay stainless farm sink, look out on to a brick patio and gardens that could easily be growing your favorite herbs. Adjoining the kitchen, there is a sunroom ? the perfect space for a croissant & coffee or set it up as a bar at cocktail time while the chef works his/her magic in the kitchen without missing a beat with the guests. If all these rooms are not enough to pique your interest, pass through the sunroom and enter a newer addition of a library/family room. At the far end of the room, a wide paneled door conceals a third set of stairs taking you to a second level master bedroom suite large enough to accommodate a king size bed and plenty of furniture. A full bath, laundry and pantry complete the first floor. 2.26 acres are landscaped with brick walkways, a meandering creek and a large in-ground pool. With some attention to details, this rolling hillside could be on the next garden & house tour. This home should be on your list of must-sees!
