Crush of the Week – Modern Antique

cotw – modern antique

Our real estate crush this week is a modern antique. Oxymoron? Not when you see this gorgeous, historic, former Civil War general store that was built in 1800. A major renovation was done in 1996, which brought modern touches and comforts while keeping much of its original, historic aesthetic. Exposed antique beams, vaulted ceilings & stone fireplaces are contrasted beautifully with a modern chef’s kitchen with a slight industrial flair.

Love to relax in a hot tub? Enjoy playing tennis then detoxing in the sauna? Have more guests than will fit in your six-bedroom home? Need a good acoustic space to record some music? You can do ALL of that without ever leaving your 52 acres of privacy! The property includes a guest house that built as a music studio, an enormous indoor tennis court/gym, a private hot tub and sauna, multiple covered porches, a bluestone courtyard, and a stream that would be lovely to picnic by.
