This lovely c. 1840s village property used to be the family home of artist Fairfield Porter. It retains a lot of historic charm, but the interiors look nicely updated. The kitchen sports an AGA stove (ooh, status symbol), along with a Viking range, and there's a pantry with ice machine and beverage coolers. The house is a spacious 4700sf, with six bedrooms, including a master with fireplace, and 3.5 baths. (A little skimpy for today's houses.) There's also a wine room in the basement. There is a half-acre of land with mature gardens and a gunite pool. Asking price is $6.25M, which we think is high; it's a convenient location and a nice house but a smallish plot.
