Description

Wake up in your dream home every day. The Merritt House is a classic New England colonial, exuding modern elegance at every turn. Originally built in 1850, the historic charm has been masterfully preserved and improved, including converted carriage house. A remarkable double lot property brimming with professionally landscaped gardens glows in the light of flickering gas lanterns. Thoughtfully renovated as a wellness home featuring environmentally conscious enhancements integrated from top to bottom; low-VOC paints & building materials, reclaimed lumber, and a whole-house water filtration system. Custom designed and crafted by local contractors, meticulous attention to detail is prevalent. Enter the home and become captivated by the bright, open concept. Admire cathedral ceilings above and timeless white & red oak hardwoods below: gourmet kitchen w/Aga stove, wet bar, fireplace, and a reclaimed wooden island. There are two primary bedrooms in the main house, one on the first floor & one on the second, each with an ensuite bath. However, the second-floor primary suite also features an office space and a loft media room w/built-in bed nook: a primary bath with an inviting claw-foot tub and separate shower with double vanities. Exceptional additional living quarters for guests are found in the guest cottage. The idyllic cottage features another full seating and dining area, a kitchenette, and a gorgeous full bath with penny tile. A turn-key residence including the furniture.
