Tax assessment appeal resulted in the assessed valuation being reduced to $1,375,000, the current list price. Based upon the current tax rate, the taxes next year will be significantly lower! This traditional, one owner, Georgian style home was built by Charles Page in 1979. The selection of a premium lot prior to construction allowed for the house to be sited perfectly, enabling the owners the ability to add a spectacular family room addition that borders the unbelievably beautiful, brick ribboned, New York Bluestone terrace in the rear. The grounds have been improved over the years with plantings personally selected for the gorgeous lot, creating a park-like setting that provides a breathtaking view throughout the year. As you enter, the traditional floor plan is true to form for a period style home of this kind. Tall ceilings create a sense of space and proportion and the large, true divided light windows allow for ample, natural light. Impeccably maintained by the original owners with a new cedar roof (2015), new 2nd floor Marvin windows (2014), new HVAC (2013), generator (2014), rebuilt courtyard fence (2017). Opportunity awaits!
