Imagine a private 70 acre family compound, situated serenely at the end of a long tree-lined drive. At first glance, the main house sits quietly in the midst of sweeping lawns, stone walls, perennial gardens and gentle fields lending to woodland trails in all directions. Century old trees grace the landscape giving the setting its park-like sentiment. Two vintage barns serve as outbuildings. One with greenhouse and vegetable gardens, the other offering shelter and a most attractive backdrop for the pool and gardens reminiscent of Provence. Cedar Creek's compound nestles alongside a noted trout stream offering great fishing, hunting, hiking and swimming.
The Main Residence: The 1850's Center Hall farmhouse has been lovingly maintained and thoughtfully updated, maintaining the flavor of its original architecture. The creative addition of a broad balcony and covered porches reflect the soul of a waterfront farm. From the gracious entry throughout the formal and informal living rooms, dining room, sunroom, studies, playroom, four guest bedrooms and generous master suite, family is clearly the focus of this comfortably appointed home.
