Inside this Revolutionary-era three-story home in Pawling, you’ll find honey-toned, wide-plank hardwoods, three stone fireplaces, and heavy-beamed, 9’ ceilings that harken back to old times. You’ll also find all of the conveniences that a 2018-era homeowner would expect, such as a cozy kitchen updated with stainless-steel appliances (including a French-door refrigerator) and a rear full dormer on the third floor which allows room for two bedrooms and a full ceramic-tiled bathroom.
Outside, you’ll find acreage that includes stone walls, a pretty, fenced-in backyard with a bluestone patio, and a pergola along the home’s back wall. There’s lots of room to relax by the fire pit, among mature trees, or on the well-maintained lawn. A 24’ by 32’ two-car garage with a loft offers storage space, or a spot to pursue a hobby or two. Active types will appreciate the fact that the property sidles up against the Appalachian Trail, and that it’s only a short walk to Whaley Lake. The Pawling train station, village restaurants, and shops are also just a short jaunt away.
