This lovely Arts & Crafts style home is situated on 15± acres in a very quiet and private location. Beautiful tall pines surround the house and make a wonderful back drop to this exceptional home. The quality and details of the house are readily apparent before even going inside, with select materials throughout.
When entering the home through the front door, you will find yourself in a large foyer with a nice-sized room to your right which the present owners are using as a 4th bedroom but it could be used as an office or formal living room. The “showpiece” of the home is the kitchen/dining room which is located just through the foyer. The cabinets are quarter sewn red oak, with flush mount doors in the arts & crafts style. There is Hunter Design specialty tile from California, Douglas Fir post and beams, Arroyo craftsman listing, Jenn-Air and Maytag appliances. Just beyond the kitchen is a large family room. A half bath and laundry/mud room complete the interior spaces on the first level.
The stairs take you up to a spacious center hall with two good-sized bedrooms across the hall and a full bathroom to your left. To your right is the expansive master bedroom suite with full bath and large walk in closet.
There is beautiful red oak flooring throughout 90% of the house with linoleum flooring for the laundry/mud room which serves as the main entrance for the family. A large screened-in porch is just off the mud room as well as a large wrap around porch for outdoor entertaining. The base of the porch is “stamped” cement and was created when the foundation was poured.
Throughout the entire house one feels in constant contact with the beautiful outdoor surroundings. Thanks to the large windows there is wonderful light everywhere. The wainscoting is Douglas Fir and attention to details abound. There is 200 amp electrical service that connects underground. The house also has a generator backup system and surge protector. The heating system is a Weil McClain Gold oil fired boiler. The energy efficient construction of this home will result in modest energy costs for many years to come.
Also on the property is a large 2 car garage with carport attached and a separate kennel with fencing for two runs.
The Lewis/Westport area is a safe, friendly community with one of the finest public schools in the area. The house is located just 5 miles from I-87, the Northway and about 45 minutes from Plattsburgh. Westport is located about 10 minutes away and is along beautiful Lake Champlain. For boating enthusiasts, there is the Westport Marina with slips to accommodate any size boat. Also in Westport is The Depot Theatre which attracts top professional actors and directors for the best possible summer stock. During the summer you’ll find students from the world-renowned Meadowmount School of Music who perform concerts in Ballard Park. Raven Ridge is just 12 miles from the Essex Ferry which runs year round and transports passengers to Charlotte, VT and Burlington beyond.
