BREWSTER, N.Y. -- Few homes built in the mid 1800s have been updated as thoroughly as the home for sale at 121 Maple Road in Brewster represented by listing agent Cindy Haas of William Raveis.
The three-bedroom, 3 ½ bath mini estate with 9.47 acres is listed for $600,000, and includes a separate cottage that could be used as an apartment or artist’s studio. The home was built in 1850. Click here for the website listing.
“It definitely does not show its age,’’ Haas said. “Everything has been renovated while keeping all the charm and character intact. The addition accents the home beautifully. All the mechanicals have been updated and the rooms have been totally renovated with the utmost quality.
The next owner will enjoy all of today's amenities with the charm of yesteryear.
The home offers unparalleled privacy. Maple Road sits adjacent to Middle Branch Reservoir, and the home has 360 degrees of unobstructed water views.
“The views are astonishing,’’ Haas said. “Unlike most antique homes, this home has a lot of oversized windows.”
The home also offers tremendous value with the large acreage, which Haas said could be developed to add more outbuildings, such as a barn. The property could be a weekend retreat for a family, New York City couple or a year-round residence. “It’s also easy to get to the highway and trains,’’ Haas said. “It’s a great commuter location."
Ralph Lauren custom wallpaper graces the eat-in kitchen. There is a family room with fireplace, formal dining room and a conservatory on the main level. The conservatory provides window seating, stunning views and a wood burning stove. “It’s like another family room,’’ Haas said. “It's a great room for entertaining or for relaxing alone. You won't want to leave!”
Two bedrooms comprise the second floor, while the master bedroom takes up the third floor with a master bath, sitting/office area and reservoir views.
The cottage includes a full bath, loft and kitchenette, and could be an artist’s studio, office or guest quarters. There is also a bluestone inground pool, and an ice house with solar panels and electricity that could be a work shed.
While the home has nearly 2,500 square feet, the windows, lighting and home flow make it appear significantly larger. “It does feel a lot bigger,’’ Haas said. “The rooms are generously sized.”
