Grist Mill Manor Farm, a lovely example of 18thC pastoral living - built over 40 years before the American Revolution - is awaiting its newest owner.

A tour of the main house starts in the grand foyer, which runs the width of the house, features random width flooring, formal chair rail and front and rear doors- one with antique box lock. The formal living room features two outstanding built in corner cabinets with carved shell motif, a decorative fireplace with incised decoration, pilastered sides and built in cupboards flanking the fireplace. The formal dining room - which was most likely the original kitchen - features a massive walk in fireplace, a simple corner cupboard, charming built in glass front cabinet, deep window sills and door to sunporch . A hallway from the dining room to the kitchen features a lighted built in display cabinet - which is a cleverly disguised door to a walk in pantry. The kitchen/great room is the newest section of the home. The cabinetry appears to be crafted by Draper, a box bay window with window seat affords views of the kitchen garden, bar sink with under counter refrigerator - great for entertaining, large bi-level island with built in cabinetry - featuring double S/S sink, DW. Additional features include a marble top counter for pastry making, double wall ovens, recessed lighting and glass front cabinetry.

The two story side entry, part of the newer addition, features brick flooring, a hallway which contains the powder room, laundry room, storage closets and entry to the enclosed porch. The second floor of this newer addition contains the main bedroom - with semi vaulted ceiling, fireplace and sitting area, multiple built ins, 2 walk in closets and a large bath with double vanities, walk in shower and random width flooring.

The six stall, Pennsylvania bank barn is built around a center courtyard with a chicken coop and a run-in for your four legged friends. A charming grist mill, for which the property is named, still has many of the features of the original as well as a deck with outdoor entertainment area. Several other outbuildings grace this lovely property, including the detached two car garage (1986). Views are enhanced by the two ponds and the historically significant Watson's Creek.
