This exquisite property is situated on 1.52 beautifully landscaped acres, complete with terraced natural stone patios, a gorgeous heated gunite pool and spectacular views of the professionally landscaped property and nearby countryside. The current owners have taken every detail into consideration when renovating and restoring this very special property. The Elias Austin homestead was originally built in 1743 but the effective age of this property is 1998, when the current owners had the vision to meticulously execute the restoration and addition to this unique piece of history, in the town of Durham. This home offers a large private 1st floor master suite with vaulted ceiling, gas fireplace, full bath, walk-in closet and 2nd floor sitting room. Complete with wet bar and french doors to the patio and pool. The sun filled gourmet eat-in kitchen with vaulted ceiling and professional grade appliances is every homeowners dream! A family room is off of the kitchen with windows all around truly bringing the outside in. And thats not all, living room, study, dining room with a spectacular fireplace and beehive oven as well as a built-in cupboard, a music room, 5 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms and 2 half baths, a generous mudroom with laundry, 7 fireplaces, beautiful wide plank floors, a walk up attic and a basement for storage and a detached newer 2 car garage, makes this a very special property to call home! There are no compromises here! Access from both Main Street and Maple Avenue.
