“Fairfield”- This fine Gentleman’s Estate, situated on 24+ acres on one of Solebury’s most scenic tree-lined country roads, is a true authentic estate, updated, expanded, and improved. A rare find, it offers many lifestyle opportunities for full time and part time users. The centerpiece of this lush and rolling property is the restored vintage home (Circa 1850), and while equipped with modern amenities, the moment you enter, you will be surrounded by the charm and ambiance of a European country estate. The unique layout of the main house, consisting of two sections and total of 7-8 bedrooms, 5.2 baths , is a combination of the original handsome stone home and the guest house, connected by the newer (2007) spacious kitchen and dining/gathering areas. The flexible floor plan, allowing for private guest quarters, can accommodate large family gatherings and living quarters that can be ideal for in-laws, grown offspring returning to the nest, or home office space. The original home, finished on 3 levels, is graced with a living room w/stone fireplace, cozy library, and spacious solarium with casement window surround and decorative round top detailing in the original structure. There are random pine board floors, deep sill windows, exposed stone walls, lined in windows and French doors, 3 fireplaces, and classic vintage charm. The great/dining room is finished with PA slate flooring with radiant heat, open beams, and an arched double door to the outside. Attached is the country kitchen, which is totally inviting with its wall of awindows and comfortable breakfast area, while offering Viking, Asko, and Subzero appliances, along with a large center island and granite counters. A newer main bedroom suite above has its own balcony, a marble bath, and sitting/dressing room with laundry. The 4 spare bedrooms in the main home are on the 2nd and 3rd floors, with updated baths. The guest house has been newly updated, freshly painted and its wood floors sanded, and a family room with gas fireplace is a perfect juncture between the two spaces. There are 2-3 Bedrooms, 2.1 baths, kitchenette and a full walk-up attic. Outside, the landscape is dotted with outbuildings, including the main stone and frame bank barn and accessory barn with 17 stalls, a complete caretaker’s cottage, 4-car garage building, stable with 10 stalls, 10 paddocks with new fencing, and an outdoor ring, as in the past this property has been a popular mecca for boarding horses if you might have equestrian ambitions. The 20 X 50 swimming pool, shielded by mature trees and landscaping, calls for entertaining, with a flagstone terrace nearby and endless views. But without question, with or without horses, this property has always been a significant country estate. The home is equipped with zoned oil hot water baseboard and radiant heat, 4 zones of central air, central vac, two wells and more. If you are a collector, want a larger home office, want to have some horses or grazing animals, or simply want to be surrounded by family & friends, there is plenty of space for everyone. A very special property that can be your once in a lifetime!
