Description for 705 Henry Williams Road, Roxbury, NY 12474
CHARM, PRIVACY AND ATTENTION TO DETAIL! That description may summarize the appeal of this 1700+-sq ft, very secluded gem of a home, but you need to see it to fully appreciate the care that has been taken to address every design aspect of the property. The first impression you get as you drive in is that, although only sited on 2.9 acres, the landscaping and placement of the home affords complete privacy. There is a detached one car garage on one side of the parking area, and the steps to the deck on the other side take you through French doors into a generous living room with two separate sitting areas, one being in front of a rustic fieldstone fireplace. The repurposed 19th century barn wood wide board floors are lovely, the space is filled with light. Moving along into the kitchen, the same flooring continues featuring tasteful cabinetry, and an eat-in dining area. Two steps down will take you into a glass enclosed, heated living area, which overlooks the backyard, and is frequently used for entertaining, as well as having a computer nook on one side. Back up to the main floor, there is a large bedroom, which in turn opens into the living room as well as a full bath with unusual Moroccan tile flooring, a marble topped vanity and a leaded glass window. Heading upstairs, you will find two more ample bedrooms, both with private balconies and a second bathroom, this time with an unusual recycled school gymnasium maple flooring, a tub/shower and a roomy window seat area. Heading downstairs there is a windowed, marble floored den/playroom area in the basement, as well as a separate laundry/utility area, and a direct walk out into a one-car garage. The outdoors areas of this property, however, really make this a great deal. The land is park-like, from the tree-lined back lawn, to the large, flat side lawn of the house, the gardens are subtle and well designed to be easy upkeep, but, at the same time, beautiful, and there is even a second level field which is large, flat, and would make a great play area for a bunch of kids, or a private picnic area if you so desired. There is so much to see here, you really need to take a look! Also, has great convenience to area recreations--skiing, hiking, boating, fishing, and just a short drive to the local farmers market!
