45 Pratt Road, Stone Ridge
This simply beautiful offering is private, convenient to amenities, meticulously maintained and cared for, and enchants the minute one enters the driveway off a quiet country lane. Built in 1984 by a skilled woodworker who lived nearby, (of lots of locally milled woods) it has been lovingly maintained and improved over the last 3+ decades by the current owners. It's extremely rare to find such beautifully “scaped” woods surrounding a landscaped home site with two beautiful, clean and clear ponds. These woods have been thinned with a knowledge and forethought for the healthy growth of woodlands. One can walk, or even ride a horse, golf cart or ATV through about 20 of the 55+ acres. These woodlands also feature a natural, chipped wood path made of the trees and limbs thinned in the “scraping” process. You will find benches in the woods to spend some time taking in the beautiful natural habitat and the serenity of nature. The home is quietly elegant in its simplicity and its evident attention to detail. Beautifully styled bathrooms and cook's kitchen (plus a butler kitchen) are reflections of 21st century amenities, as are the fully updated and high efficiency heating, hot water, plumbing and air conditioning systems. Appliances are high quality, as is the woodwork and the materials used throughout its history. The gardens are breath taking and the result of decades of careful planning and planting. They provide landscape painting backdrops year-round and are maintained by people, hoping to work for the next owners of the property. By explanation of the rooms on this listing sheet, there is a Butler’s type pantry off the kitchen, a glassed, heated and beautifully floored entryway, covered by a year round roof garden which can be seen when approaching the front door, and from inside the second floor. There is a half bath as well as an en-suite bath on the first floor, off a comfortable bedroom. The beautifully simple, wood burning brick fireplace opens to the living room. Real wood beams abound throughout. The second floor features a main bedroom and very spacious bathroom with a picture window and heated floor. There is a built-in area of cases surrounding the stairway, which creates a library or common media area, the room dimensions note as "den." And, there is an 11x9-7 alcove room with closet, which easily creates the third sleeping area with the addition of glass doors. This home is truly for potential buyers who value quality, understated elegance and a setting that is very rarely rivaled in its excellence.
This mortgage calculator can be used to figure out monthly payments of a home mortgage loan, based on the home's sale price, the term of the loan desired, buyer's down payment percentage, and the loan's interest rate. This calculator factors in PMI (Private Mortgage Insurance) for loans where less than 20% is put as a down payment. Also taken into consideration are the town property taxes, and their effect on the total monthly mortgage payment.
