Lovell offers an exceptional blend of a historic Georgian manor home with a new wing added in 2018-21. This combination of 19th century and 21st century results in a house which has both charm and all the modern conveniences.
The new addition, modeled on a New England style farmhouse, features beautiful random-width whitepine floors milled in New Hampshire and installed with exposed square-cut nails. No expense was spared in building this well-thought out addition. The second floor of the new wing offers a large light-filled primary suite and a balcony which allows you to look out over the garden, orchard and towards the mountains. Below in the gathering room (a combination kitchen, dining and sitting area) you will find a custom cooking fireplace, along with a modern six-burner Bertazonni gas stove, Bosch double ovens, warming drawer and many other features that any true cook will love! Just outside the gathering room is a beautiful three season porch made from timbers taken from a New Hampshire barn.
The circa 1840's home was built from bricks made on the property and laid in the Flemish bond style. The double front doors open to a grand central hallway with two large rooms on each side. The interior features solid brick walls covered with plaster, four fireplaces, heart pine floors, and beautiful inlaid pocket doors that divide the music room from the living room. There are two staircases to access the second level which contains three bedrooms and one full bath.The windows are triple insulated, combining an outer storm window, the original overhead sash window and a custom made full height inner glass pane.
The basement also has two sections. The original basement has four rooms, including a 3/4 bath,laundry area and a partial kitchen. The section of the basement under the new addition offers a laundry room, storage area, place for a large wood stove, wood storage room and a one car garage.
If you love old homes but also desire modern luxuries, then Lovell is a must see!
