UNDER AGREEMENT - CLASSIC 19th CENTURY TRIPLE-MINT FEDERAL ESTATE 
On the market for the first time in 30 years, this mint-condition 19th century Federal house in Alford has been updated with new systems for a contemporary lifestyle while maintaining its venerable historic character. A chef's kitchen with marble counters and top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances is part of a new Federal-style addition. The splendid master suite has a gas fireplace as well as twin bathrooms with Waterworks fixtures. The five-bedroom, five-bathroom residence has both formal and informal living rooms, dining and media rooms, a home office and a gym. The ten plus-acre property in the center of bucolic Alford boasts a three-story timber-frame garage, a hot-tub spa, a heated gunite swimming pool with an adjacent guest cottage, and a vintage timber-frame barn. With 600 feet of private frontage on Alford Brook, the house has protected views of the majestic Alford Valley from most rooms, porches and terraces. This is a rare opportunity not only to own a piece of history but also to live sumptuously in an impeccably maintained sylvan setting.
