Rustic & Contemporary; the perfect blend. Built in 1979, this Post and Beam home was designed for maximum solar gain. This Shelter Institute design home was aligned w/the rising and setting sun on the summer & winter solstices. The proper orientation & install of a solar tracker allows energy to be harnessed & utility bills to be reduced. A dramatic stone entry w/an arched wooden door takes you into the original portion of the home. The entry is impressive & captivating on its own but the wood floors, exposed beams, open staircase & rich texture envelop you. The kitchen features red painted cabinets, a Dutch door to a pantry & a wood stove w/brick surround. A sunroom, dressed in Knotty Pine, certainly stands to be a prized location. The floor plan is open & relaxed w/a gathering space between the kitchen & dining. Offering 2 main-level bedrooms, privacy for family, guests, or multigenerational living is afforded. In 1989, a more contemporary addition was added. Brazilian Cherry floors, a bow window, wood stove, 3 doors to a deck & a spiral staircase make up the living room. Upstairs, architectural interest continues. The primary ensuite boasts wide plank floors, a brick chimney, bow windows, a Juliette balcony, walk-in closet, full bath & 3rd floor loft. Down the hall from the primary, lofted post & beam architecture continues in another ensuite bedroom. Featuring a water closet, cast iron tub, open ceilings & skylights, this spacious room offers tremendous flex space. The lower-level offers a daylight basement. Outside, mature trees, a picket fence, strawberry patch, & blueberry bushes comb the landscape. If you've ever wanted to try your hand at gardening, raised beds offer an opportunity to provide nutrient rich food. Garnish your table w/ flowering blossoms of the magnolia tree. Situated on 10.8 acres of rolling fields, 185 Tobey Road is a grassy oasis & place of serenity.
