"Pond Meadow", so aptly named - the 1790 James Smith house. Soul-soothing country home, a felicitous mélange: 1 part Currier & Ives charm & 1 part Cali-chic sophistication. The richly beamed dining room has a handsome FP. The 2nd-flr master suite boasts 2 balconies: 1 surveys the land, the other overlooks the marvelously airy, sun-splashed cathedral room w/its delightful craftsman-themed details. There is a genteel patina that will warm the hearts of aesthetes & antiquarians. Unwind on the screen porch viewing the lovely meadow & fruit trees. Silence + Bird song = tranquility. Commune with the flora, fauna, friends, fam. Bring your horses, free-range chickens, pet goose, ducks. Kayak the glassy pond, lazily drop a line - sunnies on the menu tonight. Wander the stone pathways, survey the stalwart stone walls, the little meander, perennial gardens...rejuvenate. Wend your way through the peaceful hills dotted w/colonial-era farmsteads. Visit the historic town center. Find the maritime riverine & shoreline joys. Explore Deep River, other quaint, vibrant villages. The perfect place to dodge the paparazzi for the weekend. Fine multi-generational, extended household. Private pool, nice bluestone patio & screened gazebo - a perfect place for a garden party. The little cottage, a fine guest house, fab office, artist studio, writers garret, mommy panic room. Soul stirring, intriguing, heartwarming, cheerful... thesaurus, please... words fail...you simply must savor for yourself.
