Description

Exquisitely set on .44 flat, dry acres, a short stroll from picturesque Mill River, is this 3148 square foot colonial built in 1789 when Washington was president. The builder was Captain David Beers, who fought in the war and was owner of several ships that berthed in Southport Harbor. Still retaining many of its 18th century details, such as exposed beams, central chimney with multiple fireplaces, random width hardwood flooring, and finest hand tooled mill work, the present and previous stewards took the utmost care when making changes using the finest materials, craftsmanship and fashion of the times. Recent updates include open concept kitchen family room combination, with fireplace, central air, natural gas heat, large windows, finished attic, pantry, and ample storage. The entry, graced with handblown bullseye glass-windowed door, welcomes you into warm spaces with large windows that stream in light all day and all year. A stunning living room with a wall of bookcases and beautiful fireplace, is large enough to entertain holiday crowds. The sizable dining room with gorgeous fireplace, has warmed countless dinner conversations throughout the years. The study, also with a fireplace, is a perfect place for quiet while keeping an eye on the action in the beautiful large yard. The Sturges Park area is much sought after because of its lovely homes, easy proximity to downtown, restaurants, beaches, schools, parks, train and highways. Are you the next steward of 1401 Unquowa Road? It has been in the same family for almost a hundred years. People usually give up trying to find places in Sturges, because the right house doesn't come along often. This is it. The house is large enough, the lot is huge, flat, dry and sunny. There's room for a pool. One recent morning, while taking photos, I encountered two swan, many ducks and three people who met at the park with their dogs which is about 100 steps from the front door of 1401. There is a sweet boardwalk through the wetlands of the park that school kids take field trips to where you can observe Egrits, ducks and geese and many other birds.There's plenty of storage here, and very functional built ins and creative storage areas. Make this your own world. Live your best life. This part of Unquowa is very quiet with very light local traffic. Huge upside potential.
