Enter in to the keeping room with rich wide plank pine flooring opening to the living room centered on one of the four wood burning fireplaces. An abundance of natural light streams in through large windows with deep sills. Original doors, throughout the home, dual staircases, both pie and formal, built-ins, loft and generously sized rooms offer many comfortable living areas. To the right discover a private office with its own entrance an exposed stone wall, fireplace and an open loft sitting room. From the living room an exposed stone threshold invites you in to the kitchen filled with cherry cabinetry, rustic paneling, beamed ceiling, access to the back terrace and a large picture window provides lovely views of the gardens and pastures. Continue to the preserved Boone room, walk-in fireplace with beehive oven, exposed beams, historic millwork and hardware, steeped in history with character that can't be duplicated. Adjacent is the vaulted year round sun room incorporating the exposed Boone stone wall, panoramic windows, tile floors and a wood stove. A full bath completes the main level.
