Each time you return to Stag Hill, you can leave your city clothes and cares behind. This is a place of calm and beauty, a retreat for all seasons, a place to breathe, relax, entertain and play. Captivating property proposes hiking, cross-country skiing, swimming, horseback riding and yoga in the tranquility of your own woods with vistas above the picturesque Jacobs Creek. Behind the property, hundreds of acres are being added to the area's open space. Central location offers shopping, artist studio tours, antiquing, epicurean dining. And the house itself? A masterful mix of 18th-century design and 21st-century amenities: natural lighting, thick walls, huge fireplaces, pumpkin pine floors, built-ins, beamed ceilings, hidden staircases, all seamlessly combined with open style living and dining areas. Granite counter-topped kitchen with stainless steel appliances; master bedroom with en-suite marble bath and dual walk-in closets. Second-floor laundry, yoga studio and swimming pool/spa. This is a lifestyle property, a beautiful country estate of almost 12 acres. Barn, garage, carriage house, and various picturesque sheds. Whole house generator, multi-zone heating and cooling systems, terraced perennial gardens and many more features that support weekend or year-round living. 8.83 acres of this 11.83 acre property is farmland assessed as "woodlands" ($35/ year taxes). Four, independent heating and cooling zones allow energy consumption to be moderated. There is a whole house water filtration system. There is a fully-automated Cummins diesel generator (50KW) that handles the entire electrical load of the main house and remote structures (electrical power is distributed underground to garage, historic barn, potting shed and coop). An Onan switch in the basement transfers entire load to the generator within 10 seconds of loss of utility power, and automatically transfers back to utility power after it has been restored and observed to be stable. The system tests itself weekly, continuously charges the starter battery and keeps the engine warm to ensure instant startup, even in sub-zero temperatures. The diesel tank is above ground inside the generator housing and is sufficient for a full week of power.
