In a time where homes seem to be made from a cookie cutter comes a property that breaks the mold. Pull onto the tree-lined drive of 1329 Sycamore Mills Road. Cross over a gentle creek and anticipation builds as the quaint cottage house featuring, full bath, kitchenette, fireplace and patio comes into view on your right. As you look to your left a classic beauty emerges from behind a tall maple tree. This country home exudes character, history, and timelessness. The main stone-faced structure originated as a fulling mill and was built in the 1800's. The two wood-clad additions flanking it were erected in the 1950's. A new wood shake roof adorns the exterior. Walk the brick path and enter through the entrance hall and immediately you recognize that the original character of this home has been meticulously preserved. To your left is a great room with fireplace. Straight ahead is a half bath and to your right is a living room with yet another fireplace. Pass through the living room to find a step up to the formal dining room as well as the butler's pantry. Through the pantry is the heart of this home: the kitchen. With a large wood burning fire place, it's the perfect place to gather and create those secret recipes on the Garland stove. Peer through the other end of the kitchen and find a pantry closet and television room with attached half bath. Venture up the stairwell into the master bedroom sitting room. From here the master bath extends into the solarium with hot tub and picturesque views. Back through the sitting room reveals your master bedroom: a place of serenity. Two spacious bedrooms and a full hallway bath round out the upper level. Through what looks like a secret door, you will find more steps that will lead you to the final secluded bedroom and full bathroom. A 5 stall pole barn sits amidst the rolling hills, developed landscape and perennial gardens. Imagine what can be done on ~22 acres of land! Keep chickens, goats, horses. Like ATVs? Create your dream course complete with creek to make things muddy (if that's your thing). Plenty of land for hunting as well. All of this is part of the highly rated Rose Tree-Media school district. Finally, if this home looks familiar it's because it was prominently featured in 2015's Hollywood film, The Benefactor, starring Richard Gere, Dakota Fanning, and Theo James. Welcome home indeed!
