The driveway to Elk Point is off a quiet back road, and leads under a canopy of trees, through the woods, by some clearings, and to the pretty red house and separate garage/studio at the end. Like so many houses, the covered front porch is a pretty focal point and a lovely place to sit, but the practical entrance is on the side, closer to the parking area. A stone patio, shaded by an mature sugar maple, offering a gracious welcome. Inside, a mud room provides a convenient spot for mucky boots and coats, and connects to the chef's kitchen — a room that lives up to its name given that the owners are restaurateurs.
The kitchen has a generous amount of counter space, with a bank of windows adding natural light and a pleasing view of lawn and flowers, while the commercial Wolf 4-burner stove and oven with griddle and salamander is a total score for the foodie. There is an eat-in nook, and for more formal meals, a large separate dining room will fit the bill. Charming paned glass pocket doors at the far end of the kitchen open onto the entrance foyer, and to the living room just beyond, where the stone fireplace with hand-hewn beam mantel is a focal point. In that room, alongside the staircase leading up to the bedrooms, is a wall of bookshelves - a feature that adds character and a homey tone to the space. A cathedral-ceilinged sun room is adjacent to the living room, and boasts large windows, wood paneling, and exterior access. There is a full bathroom on this level, with a sliding glass door shower.
At the top of those book-lined stairs, the landing is large and well-lit with three windows, and is currently used as an office. There are three rooms off the landing: a pretty bathroom with white wainscoting, a claw foot tub and shower; A large guest bedroom with built-in closets and storage space; And a huge master bedroom with lounge.
With its high ceiling, the spacious master bedroom is grounded with wide plank pine flooring, and an accent wall, also of horizontal pine. Eleven windows add light, and bring life to the nooks and crannies, while a wood stove provides additional coziness in colder temps. The room measures 25'x25', and it should be noted that the space could easily be divided into two bedrooms.
On the other side of the parking area is a 2 bay garage, although a third bay is possible if an additional garage door were added. The building measures 20'x40'. Upstairs is a large studio or playroom, which measures 20'x30'.
The grounds are comprised of two adjacent lots. Trails run through the woods that border a number of clearings in the vicinity of the house. Those clearings are appealing spots, some with perennials that bloom through the summer, and there are a couple of outbuilding/sheds available for various uses.
