Armitage House has sat proudly on its six acres since 1750. Beautifully restored by its current stewards, the home has transcended time with grace and sophistication. Enter down a long stately drive, over a stone walled lined stream and you will arrive at the spectacular first tier of gardens. The home is in remarkable condition and the main floor offers a separate kitchen with dining and an aesthetically pleasing fireplace. The main living space is open in concept this allows for dining, formal sitting area and informal conversation. This lovely beamed room with floor reflecting a rich patina is anchored by a fireplace offering museum quality Mercer Tiles. An adjacent sunroom/office is enveloped by French doors providing ample light and magnificent vignettes of the landscaped grounds. The second level provides a comfortable master bedroom with a sitting room/office addition. There are a total of 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths that will offer your guests or family the comforts of a home that has celebrated 268 Birthdays! The gardens, dining patios, water feature and great lawn create an ambiance of your own private park. One of the most stunning features on this property is the amazing half moon in-ground pool. The pool seems to immerge out a stone wall and is surrounded by a bluestone patio for sunbathing. The entire concept is architecturally innovative. The property contains a number of stone dependencies, notably, a stone garden house, stone storage building, garage and stone Spring House (a perfect wine cellar). Stone walls and a stone aqueduct enhance the stream that runs through the property. Armitage House is located in one of the more coveted areas of Solebury. It has both the aesthetics and the pedigree of a cherished Cotswold Cottage. Recent upgrades include a new septic system and upgraded electrical service.
