Beautifully restored in 2007 under the supervision of an architecture enthusiast and her father, this home is enclosed by the Black Point Beach Club but not in it, on a peninsula reaching out in to the Sound. On a corner parcel behind a five bar horse fence on over 1.3 acres with a barn that boasts an in-law apartment as well as a garage, we find this 18th century antique farm house. On the property there is a 22' by 40' pool, a hot tub, the foundation of the 18th century Spring house and threshold of the Milk house. The home has wide plank hardwood floors, 7 foot ceilings, five fire places, a beehive oven and a smoker in the attic. A charming echo of the period can be found in the drying cabinet, the courting peephole and attic hatch to the roof. The huge yard comes complete with garden boxes and two electronic dog fences. The present owner's attention to design and detail has combined 18th century living with contemporary luxuries. Marble sinks, cast iron claw foot tubs and custom windows enchant while the updated kitchen and bathrooms bring modern convenience. The thoughtful renovation was done with an eye to making the most of natural sunlight. Many more details await! Farmer Samuel Payne, builder of this intelligently constructed farmhouse, is thought to have been one of the first settlers on Black Point, if not the very first. Internal evidence suggests a building date circa 1730-1760. Here is your chance to own a page of American history just minutes from the water!
