Situated on nearly two magnificent acres, Riverview Farm Estate seamlessly blends character and history with 21st century upgrades for today's buyer! Originally built in 1916 as part of a 100-acre dairy farm, this stately home is filled with thoughtful detail throughout. Offering 6 bedrooms and 3.3 bathrooms, many of the original features remain in this Colonial style home, such as wide plank hardwood floors, original trim work and doors, built-in cabinetry, and 10 fireplaces. Upon entering the front door, you are greeted by the grand front-to-back foyer, with formal living and dining rooms on either side, and a beautiful extra wide staircase to the second level.

The dining room with a gas fireplace, is perfect for all of your intimate gatherings. Also, on the first floor, you'll find the office and family room, both with fireplaces! The large family room opens to another outdoor covered patio overlooking the heated, in-ground pool. The updated kitchen and butler's pantry offer gorgeous new granite countertops, new fixtures, updated appliances, and original built-in cabinets. A back staircase leads to a private area with bedroom, sitting area, and an updated full bathroom - perfect as in-law/au pair suite. Continuing on the second floor, you'll find two guest rooms, one that opens to a balcony and offers a half bath and comfy sitting area with fireplace. The large master bedroom features a beautiful master bath updated in 2015, walk-in closet/dressing room, a fireplace, and has a connecting bedroom that could be used as a nursery or separate dressing area. Completing the second floor is an updated jack and jill hall bathroom.
