Among the notable estates in Greens Farms sits the Joseph Wakeman house circa 1840 - a classic residence with spectacular presence and ensconced in a well- manicured 2.15 acres. From the moment you enter the long winding driveway through expansive lawns, ancient stone walls & specimen trees, you will be captivated by how peaceful & magical this estate is. The circular driveway leads to the meticulously restored and expanded historic home with architecturally designed living space including high ceilings, multiple fireplaces, large windows throughout, double living room with two fireplaces, library/keeping room, gourmet kitchen, formal dining room, family room, five bedrooms, two offices and finished third floor with bedroom, bathroom and playroom. The perfect setting for an outdoor party or as a private sanctuary, the magnificent grounds, carefully stewarded by the same owners for over two decades, have yielded glorious results such as incredible lawns, cutting and vegetable gardens, extensive stonework and landscaping. Multiple outbuildings – a barn, garden shed and corn crib, accompany the residence and elegantly nod to the property’s storied past. In short, warmth and grace, integrity of design, and pride of ownership are found throughout the home. The exquisite attention to detail, prestigious location, and magical setting make this home a treasure.
