Timeless in design, this residence features the original stone stack fireplace from the cabin and walls of reclaimed wormy chestnut paneling, native stone, and chinked log. Modern in execution, the kitchen features granite counters, custom cabinetry and an adjoining keeping room. Other features include one-level living, 3 additional fireplaces, numerous gathering areas; both indoors and out, a custom swimming pool with “swim up” bar, covered barbecue/picnic area, a two-bedroom guest cabin, a detached two-car garage with exercise room, and a six-stall barn.
