Property Description

Historically standing strong circa 1770, the "Forster Mansion" is a more than 4000 square foot stone colonial on a 10 acre gentleman's farm. Bordered by about 1300 feet of creek frontage and 65 acres of preserved forest, the lot is more than secluded even though just on the fringe of the city limits. The multiple out buildings and tightly fenced pastures encourage your inner farmer to completely over do it. Grow the largest garden in town, finally board your own horses right in the backyard, host parties that last until dusk at the bonfire nestled at the base of the creek, and serve the community its pride and joy as the one of oldest estates in the county. Featuring rich curiosity from the secret underground tunnel remnants to the retired cooking hearths deep in the basement walls. Extraordinary original plank floors run throughout the living and dining rooms. Three humble original fireplaces are fully functioning providing a magical experience on the first floor. Spectacular gourmet chefs kitchen combines a refreshing cooking experience with memories of the original structure including exposed stone walls and romantic original built in pantries, oversized professional grade Subzero and Wolf appliances, plenty of granite countertop space, and custom cabinetry. Head upstairs to the master suite where the tremendous walk in closet connects to the serene bathroom stacked with an extra large infinity soaking tub and a polished double vanity. It's a blend of the amenities you desire and the heart warming character you only dream of calling your very own. Completely move in ready: freshly painted, updated, upgraded and aesthetically pleasing. Come home and thrive. This gem has been preserved for your enjoyment.
