• Accomplished Real Estate Professional Seeks Gentleman Farmer/Gentlewoman Farmer for Rochester Estate
Yes, indeed, this exceptional Rochester estate is not for everyone; but it is, by all measurements, a rare find in a country setting—on 8.75 acres—for the right family.
With an impressive tree-lined entrance, the drive onto the property instinctively creates anticipation. Upon arrival, its circular drive to the entrance and views of solid old-growth, which wraps the perimeter at a distance, enhances the provenance of the compound. The property is more beautiful than words and images can describe; its sphere has hosted grand wedding receptions, exclusive charity events, and was chosen as a set for a motion picture.
The impeccable farmhouse radiates sophistication, refinement, and style at every turn. Meticulously crafted, its post and beam custom interior accompanied by dramatic design elements, is cleverly concealed by a traditional, but tasteful exterior which incorporates an idyllic country aesthetic.
City dwellers, coastal living beachcombers, or somewhere in between; everyone who views this property falls in love at first glance.
Comfortable—yet unique, the home has every conceivable amenity. Never noticed, but essential for this level of comfort, is a top-end power plant in the clean and fresh basement that optimally runs the 5300 Sq.Ft. of living space above, and the additional 2000 Sq.Ft. (partially finished) below stairs with plans for an impressive wine cellar. Added to the security of handling what nature may throw at it, there is a powerful generator, a back up wood-burning furnace, air conditioning, radiant heat, cable and highspeed internet, security system, surround sound, programmable sprinkler system, and a humidifier system.
As for what you will find most alluring, are the magnificent interior details, albeit, too numerous to list.
Country elegance and magnificent touches to the custom-built home reads like a wish-list so many of us have when dreaming about an ideal residence: mighty hearths create a feeling of unduplicated pleasure; stonework beginning at the mantles and rising to castle-high 28-foot ceilings, resilient red oak mortised tenon exposed beams creating a unique and intriguing genre; impressive, repurposed wormwood chestnut flooring establishes a platform for engaging in decorating and design; and this is just the beginning.
A paragon of curated style and authenticity, the enormous eat-in kitchen has been tastefully designed with handmade cabinets, granite countertops, French terracotta floors, soapstone country sinks, a period (1903) Magee wood stove, restored and converted into a gas range, with electric ovens, a large built-in island, a European-type fireplace, French doors leading to a massive deck overlooking the enchanting terrace. And, just when it seems everything possible has been considered in appointing this space, high above the entrance hang dual brass ship lanterns, which add the perfect touch of genuineness.
Off to the master suite; the over-sized room boasts a stunning cathedral ceiling, a walk-in closet, a loft, second-floor laundry, and adding to its luxury, the suite’s glassed-in shower includes a stone waterfall.
Fit for a growing family or one who loves to gather for holidays and special occasions, the three additional bedrooms, and baths, located in a separate wing, afford privacy and quietness.
Located on Vaughan Hill Road, in Rochester, the home could not have been built in a more convenient and beautiful setting. Nestled between Mattapoisett and Marion, it offers a wide choice of equestrian sports facilities, an easy drive to yacht clubs, sandy beaches, private and public golf courses, and regional airports.
This refined property is being offered at $1,995,000 and is represented by Erin Hovan, an experienced and knowledgeable real estate agent with Robert Paul Properties, located in Marion, Massachusetts.
