I love old houses and unique houses, and this week’s feature rolls it all into one fabulous European adventure. The minute you enter the home at 700 Dutch Road, you feel like you entered a ski chalet. I’ve been lucky enough to see this home twice in the last 10 years or so, and it is spectacular, summer or winter. Read the full story here.
The arts and crafts design of past centuries highlights every corner of the 7,295 square feet. And the vaulted ceilings, covered in clever wainscoting, are impressive. Outside, the property and pond offer idyllic surroundings with more than 4 acres. It’s priced at $984,000, and includes a guesthouse — cute as a button with the same view as the main house.
