Property Description

Once owned by Hilary Knight, the illustrator of the beloved Eloise books, this charming, completely remodeled home is a haven filled with visual delights. Original wood ceilings provide a natural warmth that emanates from one room to the next, while wood floors give this house a modern countryside feel. The house has two spacious living rooms. The first centers itself around a cozy wood-burning fireplace to warm the house on romantic snowy days. The other is an adjacent light-filled sun room overlooking the pond which is home to frogs, turtles, heron, and egret. The kitchen has rare blue cabinets, black soapstone counter tops, and a cozy breakfast nook you may never leave. Host dinners in the beautiful dining room accented with hand-painted walls and barn doors that look like a Ralph Lauren photo shoot. All new windows, on-demand hot water heater, A/C, and heat. The house has three upstairs bedrooms. The primary bedroom offers plenty of room for a king-size bed and includes a sitting area and walk-in closet. The attached bathroom is full of light and has both a bathtub and separate shower. The other two bedrooms share a bathroom and are perfect for children or house guests. One room opens to a lovely roof deck with a spiral staircase that leads down to the garden below. The yard feels as though it's comprised of vignettes, one section meandering into the next. The dining room's french doors open to the backyard and patio, perfect for outdoor dining and surrounded by hydrangeas and ---- trees. The lagoon-style heated salt-water pool has plenty of space for lounge chairs and is the perfect place to spend the day. Along the side of the pool house, a large raised bed is prepped to grow a bountiful vegetable garden and is a delightful place to sit and admire passing clouds. There is a wonderful separation of space and constant visual delights that entertain the heart and mind. The house is a rare find, capturing all the charm you would imagine from it's two sole owners, both artists who lavished special touches at every turn. Through the seasons, the flowers and trees ebb and flow offering enchantment with their beautiful blooms. From the early spring bulbs to the white dogwoods and all the perennials in the flower beds, each adds interest and beauty. Eloise House is a four-season home to shelter and provide a deep sense of calm and peace.
